  1. I really wish Aldi would bring back the gluten and dairy free sour cream. Being allergic to both of those makes finding a decent sour cream almost impossible. I loved theirs but of course it is no longer sold.

    • I’ve never known sour cream to have gluten so if you find one dairy-free, isn’t it already gluten-free? I guess you would know since you have an allergy. That’s something new for me to think of sour cream having gluten ingredients.

    • I am so excited for vegan mozzarella sticks! I am gonna head to my aldi on my lunch to see if they have them

  2. Where’s the Mac n cheese? White shells & regular? I know there are different ones on the shelves currently but I know so many families including ours who love those & they have way less ingredients than the original Kraft!

  3. Let me say AOS is my addiction! Noodle bowls! yes!! Be mine 3 wick candle! Amazing! The chocolate hummus , be still my heart!

  4. The root vegetables fries were one of the best items I’ve ever bought at Aldi! Lesson learned, I should’ve stocked up.

  5. Gotta be the brie bites! We saw them in store last weekend and I jumped at them! We were buying them for a higher price point at Trader Joe’s so once again, Aldi for the win!

  6. I am most excited about the vegan mozzarella sticks. Everyone is posting about these and saying they are so good.

  7. Looking forward to trying the EMPORIUM SELECTION CHEDDAR CHEESE BOX. Cheese is one of my favorite things. I love it more than chocolate.

  8. The Keto cookies!!! Oh, my word, PLEASE make these available ALL THE TIME! And the almond flour!!! Thanks so much for delivering fabulous goodies for the (ever growing!) low carb community!!!

  9. Most excited for Appetitis Everythinf Franks in a Blanket! What an awesome idea for the everything bagel seasoning!

  10. I’m super excited for the jalapeño Popper Mac & cheese!! I’m going to pair it with some bbq & brussel spouts.

  11. I am very interested in trying the Park Street Deli Cauliflower Dips to see how they taste! I love to dip pita chips in dip!

  12. Prosciutto , Brie, Mozzarella and a good crunchy french bread followed by chocolate, fresh strawberries and a cool drink – my kind of day.

  13. I have not tried the EARTH GROWN VEGAN DAIRY-FREE SALAD DRESSINGS yet so that is going on my list. Husband stops twice a week on the way home from work.

  14. The heart shaped cheese assortment is going to be so much fun for Valentine’s (and at least once before Valentine’s because I can’t resist)!

  15. I wish I lived closer to an Aldi now. When I lived in Jersey I went all the time. I would like to try the THE CHOCOLATE CELLAR RED WINE.

  16. APPETITOS EVERYTHING FRANKS IN A BLANKET – I already was putting Everyting seasoning on our pigs in a blanket, this just saves me that step! Sweet!

  17. The BREMER JALAPENO POPPER MAC AND CHEESE sounds delicious. I will definitely be looking for it and several others listed here.

  18. Definitely the plant-based burgers. I’ve been trying to eat less meat, hoping these are a good, affordable substitute!

  19. I’d be most excited to try the Earth Grown Vegan Mozzarella Sticks! The best vegan Mozzarella sticks I have tried are from a brand called NoDoh, but they are expensive, so I am curious how this alternative compares.

  20. The keto cookies are amazing! I bought a pack to try them then went back the next day to buy half of what was left. I easily eat a pack in one sitting.

  21. Jalapeno popper mac/cheese. I wish they would keep some of my favorites like the Tex Mex spring rolls all the time.

  22. Looking forward to trying the vegan mozzarella “cheese” sticks. I have tried and like the shredded vegan cheese so hope these are good too!

  23. I was at Aldi’s yesterday and I love their selection of foods but the employees at my store seem miserable. I did see that my store had ILE DE FRANCE BRIE BITES and they are yummy

  24. I am most excited by their gourmet cheese selections like the EMPORIUM SELECTION VALENTINE’S DAY CHEESE ASSORTMENT.

  25. Ooooh! I need to shop at Aldi’s more. There’s not one near me to frequently visit. That Jalapeno Popper mac and cheese sounds amazing!

  26. I would love to try any of these items! I have an Aldi’s close by me and have been wanting to go there. I would love to try those wrapped franks! 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win!

  27. Hands down I would like to try the red velvet cookies. I find that the regular are a perfect dupe for oreos AND hold up better if using them with baking. Very excited!

  28. APPETITOS EVERYTHING FRANKS IN A BLANKET – I already add the Everything seasoning when I make pigs in a blanket, so it’s like they read my mind!

  29. i am loving the EMPORIUM SELECTION CHEDDAR CHEESE BOX, my husband is so hard to shop for valentines and this is soo perfect!

  30. Definitely the keto cookies! I’ve been doing so good on my diet but my biggest downfall is my sweet tooth!

  31. I love all the Earth Grown products Aldi is now carrying. I am very excited to try the Earth Grown vegan salad dressing. Also the Football shaped pizza is really cool. I’ve been an Aldi shopper for about 21 years and have always loved the January “get healthy” products offered at Aldi. Bought my Eliptical trainer there years ago.
