And here’s a totally unsolicited review that boils down to: We all liked them, yay!
And they look pretty much like conventional brownie mix brownies, don’t they? The texture of the finished brownies is only slightly more grainy, but ALDI really has the flavor and texture down otherwise. This mix calls for adding 1/2 cup oil, 2 eggs, and 2 tablespoons water.
As far as other allergens: The label does not specify dairy free, but also lists no obvious dairy ingredients, so see what works for your family’s dietary needs.
So they’re not brownies of health food — here are the ingredients for your own perusal — but instead are brownies of: I want a mix that’s kind of like the ones I can buy on sale for a dollar at the grocery store, because I miss them. This mix cost me $2.99 at ALDI, and is a limited time special buy. If you eat gluten free, keep encouraging ALDI to bring in more gluten free products!
Update: This original post was from 2013 —
ALDI now has a full line of gluten free products under their liveGfree brand, and we’re a fan. All of the baking mixes seem to be comparable to their national brand counterparts, and I also highly recommend the pretzels, bars, and chicken nuggets.
