ALDI gluten free chicken nuggets — HUGE hit


So earlier today I bought these gluten free chicken nuggets at ALDI. Tonight, both kids tried them for dinner — HUGE hit. Both had seconds, and would have happily had thirds if mean mom hadn’t stopped them. ;) Tried a bite of one myself, and agree that it was pretty good.


I’m definitely buying ALDI gluten free chicken nuggets again! See here for ingredients.

ALDI shopping and gluten free chicken nuggets report


I went to ALDI today to check out the new ALDI gluten free chicken nuggets — here’s what I bought, and what’s in the nuggets! Will report back again after we taste them. :)

Note that all the SimplyNature products I saw, as well as the gluten free nuggets, had Special Buy tags, which means they are not necessarily permanent additions. I am hoping that if they see a really good response to these, they will make it into the permanent rotation, though!

What I bought

Kirkwood gluten free chicken nuggets, $4.99.
Little pork sirloin roast, $3.70.
Holiday marshmallows, $.29.
Strawberries, $1.79.
Blueberries, $1.49.
Blackberries, $.99.

Paid $13.50. If the nuggets are good, will go back later in the week for more of those and the clementines and such.
