What do you get in Aldis? One savvy shopper shares her best finds.

By Goldy Siegfried

Aldis, a national chain supermarket, is one of my favorites haunts for grocery shopping. Since it’s not a kosher supermarket, it’s somewhat of a game to see what other Jews are buying and what foods have a hechsher. Aldis features off brand products, so don’t expect to find Heinz ketchup. Note that these are the regular prices; sometimes there are specials so the prices may go lower, but they usually don’t go higher!

Here’s the items I love to find at Aldis.

Produce

They have amazing specials. The week my daughter got engaged, mangos were 49 cents and pineapples were 99 cents. Perfect, we had great fruit for the vort. Bags of iceberg lettuce (with a Star-K hechsher) are between 69 and 99 cent. Can’t be beat.

Summertime and BBQ Season

Why should you go to Aldis? It's not about the glamour, or service. It's the prices that will get you and keep you.

Sugar cones are 1.19; sliced pickles 1.29; a 20 ounce container of mustard is 59 cents. You can find olives, watermelon, topamax generic dips like chummus, guacamole, frozen fruit bars at super low prices.  Frozen french fries and potato puffs are priced at $1.65. And that pizza dough for less than a dollar!

Back to School Season

Why should you go to Aldis? It's not about the glamour, or service. It's the prices that will get you and keep you.

Many varieties of off-brand cereals (with an OU hechsher), big bags of pretzels, and chips are between $1.09-1.69. As always, double check for a hechsher. Flour tortillas are $1.69 and orange juice is $1.89.

Baking

Why should you go to Aldis? It's not about the glamour, or service. It's the prices that will get you and keep you.I buy all my basic baking supplies at Aldis. Flour is $1.39 for a 5 pound bag; sugar is $1.85 for a 4 pound bag; brown sugar and confectioners’ sugar are $1.29 for a 2 pound bag. (Click here to see how we store the sugars). Corn syrup is $2.89 for a 32 ounce container and salt is 39 cents!
