cretor's popcorn cheese and caramel mix

Speaking of good yet expensive, how about this Cretor’s cheese & caramel popcorn mix? (Be sure to shake up the bag, because the heavier caramel pieces tend to settle to the bottom.)

everything brioche buns

The everything brioche buns are delicious, and might make a nice change for your 4th of July burgers or sandwiches.

garlic bagel chips

As for the bagel chips? Those are just crunchy yummy tasty..

Decadent desserts

New regular buys?

pizza dough

Let’s mention a couple of items that seem to be new regular buys, because both will be useful! First up: Pizza dough had disappeared from my ALDI stores forever, but is now back in the refrigerated section for $1.39.

And, the Dakota’s Pride lentils and green split peas that have been an irregular special buy are now stocked on the regular shelves at $1.29 per 16 oz bag. These are over by the tortillas at my stores.

Find some great lentil recipes from me and other ALDI shoppers in our ALDI fan Facebook group, here!
