organic pesto chicken sausage

We have new flavors of the Simply Nature organic sausage this time around, and pesto does sound interesting.

coffee cake bites

And don’t these coffee cake bites look darn delicious? I like everything about cinnamon cream cheese, but am afraid for my self-restraint if I were to buy them.

dumbbells at aldi

The dumbbells are only available in two 12.5 lb or 25 lbs, but look nice!

boot socks

And don’t these boot socks look so cozy and soft? Available in both knee high and crew length, but the only colors in my store were pink/grey or red/white.

Seasonal ALDI Finds

almond butter pretzels

Now that all the seasonal holiday Finds are almost gone from stores, new seasonal Finds for the first quarter of the New Year are creeping back in! I know some of you have been waiting for the almond butter pretzels to return, and here are a few more I spotted this week. Do let me know what you see in your own stores as well.

  • Simply Nature almond butter filled pretzels, $4.99
  • Simply Nature black bean corn tortilla chips (GF), $1.99
  • Park Street Deli smoked salmon dip, $3.19
  • Park Street Deli zesty jalapeño or buffalo skinny dip, $3.49
  • Simply Nature seaweed snacks, $1.69
  • Simply Nature quinoa chips, $2.19
  • Boulder wax paper, $1.29
  • Boulder parchment paper, $2.39

The wax and parchment papers might actually be left over from holiday baking, but it’s always strange to me that these things are seasonal. Pick yours up while available!

smoked salmon dip

I was intrigued by the smoked salmon dip, but I’m not at all sure about… “imitation salmon.” What?! I guess it’s like mock crab, but you don’t see that as much with salmon.

seaweed snacks

One kid here loves seaweed snacks, and the other hates them… but that’s about par for the course over here. These are back seasonally as well; look for them on an endcap with other natural and organic products.

What’s Up with ALDI Finds?

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, 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.
