ALDI Finds week of 4/12/23

ALDI Finds for the week of 4/12/23 include plant based foods, protein French toast sticks, Chindi rugs, compost bins, and more. Check out this week’s picks below, and let me know what you want to Find!

cashew milk ice cream at aldi

April is Earth month, so ALDI and other stores often feature plant-based and other Earth-friendly products. Dairy free, vegan, and vegetarian folks, rejoice: This week’s ad sports a number of plant-based foods. Let’s start our journey over in the freezer section with these Sundae Shoppe non-dairy cashewmilk frozen desserts. A pint of this ice cream alternative will run you $3.49, and you can choose from chocolate brownie, double caramel, or peanut butter chocolate chip.

earth grown non-dairy ice cream cookie sandwiches

If you prefer oat-based frozen dairy desserts, look for Earth Grown Vegan non-dairy chocolate chip or chocolate cookie sandwiches, $4.29 a box.

plant based cake in chocolate or banana

Also in the frozen section, a whole Belmont plant based vegan chocolate or banana cake is $7.99 this week.

earth grown chickenless fries chicken style tenders

And while you’re over there, why not take a minute to look beyond desserts: A 10 oz pack of vegan Earth Grown chickenless fries is priced at $3.99.

southwest harvest grain bowls in the freezer

Or, you can take a look at these Season’s Choice harvest grain bowls. Each meat free bowl is 10 oz, costs $2.99, and is available in Southwest or Italian varieties.

plant based protein bars

Moving over to the pantry section, we have boxes of Elevation plant based protein bars. These will run you $7.99 per 5 ct package, and it looks like they all contain 13g protein.

cauliflower gnocchi and chickpea gnocchi

In that same section: Specially Selected cauliflower or chickpea gnocchi is $2.99 per 14.11 oz package.

Lastly, over in the deli/refrigerated section, 8 oz packs of Earth Grown BBQ or sesame ginger tofu cubes are up to $3.59 this time.

Both advertised and unadvertised ALDI prices can vary by store and by region. Here are more top ALDI Finds for the week of 4/12/23. You may also Find some on 4/9/23 (or, 4/10, because Easter) in Sunday ad markets — or if your store tends to put products out early.

baked cheddar & sour cream potato crisps

For your snacking pleasure, we do have these baked potato crisps with 75% less fat than their original potato chips.

frozen pasta

On the heat-and-eat front — I’ve never tried these frozen pastas, but they look even quicker and easier than boiling your own, I guess.

texas bbq meatloaf in the freezer section

Or pick up a little frozen meatloaf to have dinner ready to heat & go.

mediterranean style flatbread pizza at aldi

Pizza, of course, is always an option! And this Mediterranean flatbread looks pretty good.

extra jumbo ez peel raw shrimp bag

reusable snack bags

Speaking of Earth Month: If you’re tired of going through endless baggies for school lunches (and your kids are good about not throwing away reusable containers…), you might want to check out the reusable snack and sandwich bags this week.

tumbling composter

Continuing our Earth Day theme, composters are back. If you’re wondering what these look like and their capacity, my store finally put these out — pictured above.

wooden raised planter

More to support your gardening efforts — this is a decent price for a wooden raised planter!

garden soil at aldi

And this is a decent price for garden soil, too, so stock up while available.

Seasonal food Finds

sugar cones at aldi

I only saw a couple of new seasonal products at my local ALDI this week, but thought I’d share that Benton sugar cones are back! It must be getting close to summer… but, anyway, these are up to $1.85 this year. Speaking of summer, look also for Simply Nature organic lemonades: $3.19 per bottle.

What’s Up with ALDI Finds

shipping delays at aldi

What’s up with ALDI Finds? These are limited time special buy items, and are available in stores only while supplies last. If you spot something you like, be sure to pick it up while you can. See also: What is the ALDI Aisle of Shame?

Be sure to visit the ALDI Finds product delays page before popping over to the store for new Finds. Because of ongoing shipping delays and materials shortages affecting ALDI (and everyone else), some advertised products may not be available in all locations.
