5 Favorite Aldi Products

5 faves

One of the good things to come from our big move is that we’re now much closer to Aldi. As in it’s actually convenient to go to Aldi and get the majority of our weekly groceries. It’s liberating to not have to think about coupons at all. So with the increase in our Aldi usage I’m going to use my first ‘Five Favorites’ to share what we’ve found to be awesome.

This comes with the disclaimer that obviously these are my opinions, everyone has the things that they are particular about when it comes to groceries. I don’t really care if it’s organic or not. I just try to pick foods that are less processed and have a short list of ingredients, all of which I can recognize. And with that, here we go:

5 Aldi Favorites

1 – The quart size containers of plain and vanilla greek yogurt. I’m a yogurt snob and I love these!

2 – Fruit Muesli – $2.99 – The dried fruit in it is fantastic. It makes my morning bran cereal go from ‘bleh, I hate healthy cereal’ to ‘I can’t wait for my daily bowl of cereal!’ Oh, and it’s a great way to sneak in extra fiber to my diet.

3 – Pepper jack cheese – This store brand pepper jack is actually made from real jack cheese, not pasteurized cheese product. I’ve found that many other stores’ brands of pepper jack cheese are not made from real cheese and that’s why it’s cheaper, folks. Get real cheese for cheaper at Aldi.

4 – Tortilla chips – Chips and salsa are a staple in Casa de los Mikes. We’ve eaten many a brands of tortilla chips and the verdict is in: Aldi’s is our favorite. We’re partial to the rounds.

5 – Sweet Home Farm Granola – combine with #1 and some fresh blueberries from the produce section and that’s half my lunch! I prefer the Honey Nut.

Bonus round! – For those fortunate to live in a state where Aldi sells wine and beer (woot! MI!). We’ve tasted many of their wines and our favorite is Winking Owl Cabernet Savignon – a steal at $2.89.

Anyone else want to chime in with some of their grocery store favorites?

BTW in putting together this post I found that Aldi has a blog too. Really?!?

Linking up with Heather and the rest of the Favorites.

  1. Aldi is where we do 95% of our grocery shopping! Love it! I always pick up a bag of the tortilla chips too. It wasn’t until recently, after having them at various friends’ houses, that I realized Clancy’s tortilla chips are even *better* than Tostitos. And what? A third the price?

    I’m so jealous of people who can buy Aldi wine (which is probably…almost everyone outside of PA). I still haven’t tried it.


    • I was floored when we moved here and I walked into Aldi and there was wine. Now when my family comes to visit they stock up. Maybe one day PA will change their crazy ways.


  2. We love Aldi!! When I was a little kid, my parents would drive 2 hours every few months just to get to the nearest Aldi to stock up. Thankfully we now have one 10 minutes away. Sadly, they don’t sell wine here in Maryland.
