My Favorite ALDI Finds this week — Much Ado about Memorial Day
Here are a few of my favorite ALDI Finds and sale items from the new week’s ad starting either 5/19/19 or 5/22/19 (although, even in Sunday markets, some of the new Finds don’t release until Wednesday). And yes: Pretzel buns are indeed back! These are so good every time they roll around, and then you can pair those pretzel buns with one of the following options:
- 32 oz SimplyNature organic grass fed burgers at $8.99,
- 32 oz Cattlemen’s Ranch unseasoned or bacon cheddar black Angus patties for $5.99, or
- 48 oz Kirkwood turkey burgers at $5.99
All of the above are frozen, but then you’ll also find family packs of 73% lean ground beef at $1.99/lb (when you buy it in the five pound package).
For the bun free contingent, look for St. Louis pork spare ribs at just $1.99/lb. (The last couple times they had spare ribs on sale I was able to find packs on clearance the next week, but with the holiday weekend and all I’m doubting I’ll get so lucky this time….)
And to top those burgers? Heck, yeah: Happy Farms Preferred deli sliced chipotle cheddar cheese is back in this week’s ad! Check out my earlier mini review (and one of the best grilled cheese sandwich recipes) here. If you feel a little more processed, however, 12 oz Happy Arms American cheese singles are running just $1.49 this week.
More Memorial Day BBQ Sales at ALDI
Why yes, this is an -old- photo of a grill full of ALDI burgers & brats!
‘Tis the season for grilling, so of course last week’s ALDI Finds featured grills, charcoal, and more grilling items. This week, though, they’re more focused on the food. In addition to the burgers-buns-and-cheese combo above, you could instead (or additionally!) go more sausage-y with a big 45.6 oz party pack of bratwurst for just $4.99, or 3 lbs of Parkview bun length wieners for $2.49.
Burman’s regional BBQ sauces are back at $1.99, Dakota’s Pride grill style 22 oz beans are $1.49, 32 oz Great Gherkins dill pickle chips can be found for $1.99, 24 packs of PurAqua purified water have dropped to $1.79, and 30 oz Burman’s olive oil or light mayo is on sale for $1.89. Phew!
For s’more fun, though, here’s what you need: 24 oz Baker’s Corner giant marshmallows ($1.99), Choceur 5.29 oz milk chocolate bar ($1.49), and Benton’s honey graham crackers, $1.69.
Let’s see, what else. Oh! The big bags of Pop-Ice freezer bars are back at $2.29; I know a lot of people wait for these to reappear each summer. And, 48 oz tubs of Belmont ice cream are on sale for just $2.19.
If you’re feeling a little more virtuous about your snack options, though, Specially Selected pita chips are also back at $1.99 per 9 oz bag — and these pair quite well with Park Street Deli hummus, $2.29. If you pick up the roasted red pepper hummus, it also makes for an awesome base for creamy tomato hummus soup (an all ALDI recipe!).
Bring on the outdoor fun
On the non-food ALD Finds front: Pool party! A Summer Waves 10’x30′ quick set pool will run you just $39.99 this week, and you’ll also find various lounges, a Crane portable air pump for $19.99, the cool Gardenline wine or beverage stakes for $2.49, and a plastic kiddie pool for just $6.99. Plus, nice prices on these cute espadrilles and clogs — although I often have problems with ALDI shoe sizing, since they only carry whole sizes and I’m really quite in between. Do you guys have this problem?
More good buys for your patio or yard, such as a Gardenline 50′ garden hose for $9.99? Sounds good to me. Be on the lookout for hose accessories, too, plus a Workzone 4 shelf tall cabinet or Gardenline hammock with stand at $49.99 each.
