ALDI Finds for the week of 11/2/22 include Thanksgiving foods, Advent calendars, winter gnomes, & sweet potato casserole — plus so much more! Check them out below, and let me know what you want to Find this week.

season's choice sweet potato casserole

Let’s start with Thanksgiving foods this week, because it’s somehow November, y’all! Jumping right in: Those of you who wait patiently every year for ALDI’s sweet potato casserole, your search is over — because you know it’s November when Season’s Choice sweet potato casserole reappears in the freezer section. (Up to $4.99 this year, though.)

Thanksgiving Finds at ALDI

gluten free french's fried onions

Speaking of waiting for seasonal favorites to reappear: Gluten free folks can find Simply Nature gluten free organic French fried onions this week, at $3.49 per 6 oz can. At that same $3.49 price, also look for liveGfree gluten free turkey or chicken stuffing.

turkey stock

And be sure to take… stock… of your pantry, because 32 oz boxes of Chef’s Cupboard turkey stock and unsalted chicken or beef broth are on the shelf. (The ad says “see price in store,” and tags weren’t up yet at mine. Please let me know the price if you spot these boxes at yours.)

brioche stuffing mix

And stuffing, there are so many stuffing options! In addition to the gluten free stuffing mix mentioned above, choose from:

  • Chef’s Cupboard herb bagged stuffing, $2.49
  • Chef’s Cupboard cornbread bagged stuffing, $2.29
  • Chef’s Cupboard Hawaiian stuffing, $1.39
  • Pepperidge Farm herb seasoned stuffing, $3.12
  • Specially Selected brioche stuffing, $1.99

People swear by their Hawaiian stuffing, if you like that sort of flavor.

plant based turkey breast

Options for your Thanksgiving main this year include Earth Grown plant based herb or oven roasted turkey breast, $4.99 per 7.4 oz package. The carnivores among us can pick up a whole smoked Butterball turkey, though, at $2.19/lb.

idahoan potatoes

Potatoes on the side? Well, you can choose from family sized Idahoan mashed potatoes at $2.48, or Chef’s Cupboard julienne or cheesy scalloped potatoes at $.99.

tru whip

To top those holiday pies, perhaps a little Truwhip? Original or keto, at $2.99 per 9 oz container.
