Hummus Among Us

So, it appears that my store, at least, has temporarily stopped stocking the regular hummus varieties (I think to make room for holiday cheeses). I’m not sure that this week’s dill pickle hummus makes up for that, but what can you do…?

fall dessert hummus at aldi

You can also look for various fall dessert hummus flavors, such as pumpkin pie and sea salt caramel. These are a seasonal buy, at $2.49 per 8 oz container.

What German Week Finds are you planning to pick up this time?

german mustards at aldi

Me, I always like to grab a new jar of whole grain mustard — it’s great both on sandwiches and in recipes.

Hey la, hey la, pierogies back

aldi frozen pierogies

Next up in our romp through this week’s find, how can you not like pierogies? Some ALDI stores apparently carry refrigerated ones year-round: Mine, however, does not. So I’m always happy to see Bremer frozen pierogies back in stock, at $1.99 per 16 oz box. Choose from spinach white cheddar or roasted garlic at this price.

For a delicious different dinner option, try using yours in this sheet pan sausage, peppers, & pierogies recipe.

Seasonal Finds

coffee and cajun cheese

We’re at the point where it’s fun to poke around for new seasonal Finds on every ALDI trip! While wandering through the cheese section today, I spotted a set of Emporium Selection artisan flavored cheeses (perfect for any charcuterie board) at $3.49 apiece, as well as 8 oz BelGioioso marscapone for $2.89.

connelly's apple pie cream

In stores that sell alcohol, you can also look for seasonal Connelly’s Apple Pie Country Cream, $8.99 per 750 ml bottle. You might also spot Pacific Fruit Vineyards sweet apple and sweet peach wines, $3.99 a bottle.

carrot bisque

Look by the soups for this seasonal Specially Selected coconut carrot or tomato Parmesan Bisque, $3.49 for a 24 oz jar.

Lastly: The really nice ALDI pumpkins are back. These are a great large size for $3.99 (may vary by region) — but will likely go on sale even cheaper sometime in the next few weeks before Halloween.

What’s Up with ALDI Finds?

shipping delays at aldi

What’s up with ALDI Finds? Well, these are limited time special buy items that are available in stores only while supplies last. So if you spot something you like, be sure to pick it up while you can.

Before shopping for new Finds this week, though, you might wish to visit the ALDI Finds product delays page. Because of ongoing shipping delays and materials shortages affecting ALDI and many other retailers, certain advertised products may not be available in all locations.
