ALDI Finds for the week of 8/24/22 include all things pumpkin spice, pretzel buns, frozen crab cakes, and more. Check them out below, and let me know what you want to Find this week.
Have you been waiting for pumpkin spice, apple cider, and more warm fall flavors to show back up at your local ALDI? Well… your long wait is now over, because…
It’s fall, y’all! Well, at least, it’s close enough to fall that ALDI is jumping on the pumpkin spice and everything nice bandwagon. Let’s start out this week with Specially Selected pasta sauce, available this week in pumpkin & butternut squash or pumpkin chipotle flavors for $3.49 per 24 oz jar.
You might enjoy your pumpkin pasta sauces with Reggano fall shaped pasta — but, note that these 17.6 oz bags of shaped pastas are now up to $2.69. As always, cook their shaped pasta al dente; they tend to fall apart easily when cooked too long.
On a sweeter note, you can also enjoy Specially Selected pumpkin cheesecake drizzled caramel corn, $2.99 per 8 oz bag.
Or, Benton’s apple cider donut flavored creme cookies will run you $2.29. Prefer fall creme wafer rolls? Benton’s brand pumpkin spice or salted caramel canisters are available this week, at $1.99.
On the gluten free front, Simply Nature organic coconut clusters (apple cinnamon or pumpkin spice) are $6.99 a bag.
Both advertised and unadvertised ALDI prices can vary by store and by region. Now, let’s run down the rest of the top ALDI Finds for the week of 8/24/22. You may also Find some on 8/21/22 in Sunday ad markets, or if your store tends to put products out early.
Top ALDI Finds this week
Got smoothies? Pick up 32 oz bags of Season’s Choice antioxidant boost or super greens smoothie blends at $5.99 each. Then, beyond the aforementioned fall-inspired foods, here are ten more top food Finds (plus a bunch of great frozen Finds), as well as twenty non-Food Finds. These are all for the week of 8/24/22.
Ten new ALDI food Finds this week
Thirsty? Check out Nature’s Nectar 4 packs of sparkling cider or ginger beer this week — the cider will run you $3.99; the ginger beer, $3.19. Other foodielicious Finds this week include:
- Bake Shop s’mores mini cupcakes, $3.29
- L’Oven Fresh pretzel hamburger buns, $2.79
- The Cookie Dough Cafe edible chocolate chip cookie dough 4 pack, $4.99
- Smithfield fresh whole boneless pork butt roast, $1.99/lb

- Wahlburgers Wahl sauce, $3.99
OK, they also have 1.33 lb packs of fresh Angus beef Wahlburgers to go with those pickles and sauce, but those patties will run you $6.99.
Edible cookie dough seems expensive, yet dangerous — so it’s probably best that the price made me put this back on the shelf, right?
And you can enjoy those Wahlburgers on pretzel buns. (I usually wait, because these expensive buns often go on clearance after a while — but that is of course a gamble.)
Frozen food Finds
We have a bunch of new frozen food Finds this week, so I thought I’d pull them out in a separate section for you here. Straight out of the gate, this Mama Cozzi’s wood-fired flatbread looks pretty interesting — $5.49 gets you either classic combo supreme, or BBQ chicken. More pizza? OK: Barstool Sports One Bite stone baked crust 5 cheese pizza is $6.98.
And Sundae Shoppe rose cones are back! These are so pretty, and will run you $3.99 per 4 ct box.
Also on the sweeter side of things, a 40 oz Belmont cheesecake variety sampler is $12.99.
Now, let’s get savory: Have you been curious about ALDI crab cakes? Check out my Fremont Fish Market crab cakes review from last year — the price, however, is now up to $4.99 for the value pack of five. Other premade frozen foods this week include a Fusia Asian Inspirations sweet teriyaki or sesame ginger chicken skillet, $5.99, or Yummy whole grain or chicken & veggie Dino Buddies, $4.99.
Season’s Choice crispy potato circles are also back this week, at $2.39 per 30 oz bag. Try yours in this kid-friendly taco style tater tot casserole! More frozen sides include:

Lastly, Whole & Simple Mexican street corn or cilantro lime chicken cauliflower bowls will run you $3.29.

And magnetic tiles, well, they’re a perennial hit with the younger crowd!
If anyone sees those paper plates or towels in store, please let us know how much they’re running this time… Update: Laura says the towels are $7.29 in Indianapolis!
