Cinco de Mayo & gardening: ALDI Finds week of 4/26/23

ALDI Finds for the week of 4/26/23 include Cinco de Mayo foods, ever-more gardening items, and more. Check out this week’s picks below, and let me know what you want to Find!

churros in a red bag

Cinco de Mayo is fast approaching, so ALDI is going all out this week. Their churros are always popular; they’re very similar to Taco Bell’s cinnamon twists — but up to $1.49 a bag this year.

box of cinco de mayo chocolates

Speaking of sweets, these Moser Roth Cinco de Mayo chocolates weren’t listed in the sneak peek ad, but were out on the regular chocolate + candy endcap at my store at (I think), $2.99.

on the border queso flavored tortilla chips

On the salty snacks front, look for On the Border queso flavored tortilla chips, at $2.29 a bag. (Oh, and my local store had their own-brand Clancy’s restaurant style tortilla chips on sale this week for $1.49, as opposed to their now-normal $1.89 price in my area.) To go with: Mateo’s gourmet salsa, $4.32.

tapatio salsa picante mixed nuts

While we’re doing name brand salty snacks: How about Tapatío salsa picante mixed nuts, at $4.99 per 12 oz bag.

street corn seasoning at aldi

Stonemill taco cart or street corn 4-in-1 seasoning containers will run you $4.29 apiece this year. (Hence the classy price editing job on last year’s photo, above!)

frozen mini tacos, southwest veggie style

Moving on, several options await you over in the frozen section. These 17.5 oz bags of Casa Mamita mini tacos, for example, are available in beef or veggie varieties at $5.79 a bag.

black bean & corn enchiladas

The black bean & corn enchiladas don’t look quite right to me, but maybe they taste amazing? These single serve entrees will run you $3.95 a box.

shrimp fajita mix

10 oz frozen boxes of shrimp fajita or shrimp taco mix are $4.99 apiece. (Make your own for a better and more cost-effective shrimp-to-veggie ratio, but this is a shortcut option for a busy night.) Additional frozen Finds include:

  • Bremer chicken or steak fajita skillets, $6.19
  • Fremont Fish Market or Casa Mamita street taco meal kit, $9.99
  • Texas Tamale Co. pork tamales 18 oz, $8.48
  • Tyson 22 oz fajita grilled chicken strips, $7.99

People have reviewed the tamales favorably in the past, if you’re in the market for frozen pork tamales this week. Lastly, over in the fresh meat section, you can pick up a 2 lb Tyson beef street taco kit for $9.99 or a Smithfield fresh whole boneless pork butt roast at $2.29/lb.

street tacos meal kits

Both advertised and unadvertised ALDI prices can vary by store and by region. Here are more top ALDI Finds for the week of 4/26/23. You may also Find some on 4/23/23 in Sunday ad markets or if your store tends to put products out early.

hanging baskets at aldi for $7.99

Since we’re firmly in spring now, gardening and outdoor items again comprise most of the non-food Finds section of these week’s ad. Hanging baskets also showed up in my store for $7.99 this week, but looked terrible — hopefully they are in better shape at yours!

They also have Belavi hanging basket stakes for $6.99 — I have the same bird design from a couple of years ago, and just put out this hanging basket on mine (not from ALDI, because: See above).
