wild herring in wine sauce

For our last food Find, let’s move over to the refrigerated section — And this one is just for meeeee. Pickled herring is really an acquired taste, but if you also have acquired this taste over the course of your lifetime, you should know that ALDI has 32 oz jars of Fremont Fish Market herring in wine sauce for $6.99. I’ve enjoyed their herring in the past, and it tastes the same as (but costs less than) Vita herring. On the fishy front, they also have 3 oz packs of Specially Selected cold smoked salmon gravlax for $4.39. These have gone up in price, but they’re tasty.

holiday cat scratching playhouse 2023

Last, but not least: Let’s talk about pets, ba-by…! Holiday-themed cat scratching playhouses are back, and are also back down to $6.99 apiece in this week’s ad. Brief review: Our own bad kitties have always appreciated these — and, putting them together is a great way to keep the kids occupied for a little while. 2023 cat scratching playhouse designs at ALDI include Peppermint Twist, Vintage Christmas, or Winter Log Cabin, and each comes with catnip and cardboard scratching pads to put inside. Other fun pet-related products this week include:
