Vegan Ice Cream, Electric Pressure Cookers and more ALDI Finds
These were not actually in the ad, but if you spot the Welby pre-moistened lens cleaning wipes back in stock at your ALDI like I did today? Pick up a box or two! $2.99 is totally worth it for a 100 pack, because these little wipes are super handy for cleaning everything from glasses to iPhones. (I still have some from last time they rolled around, because I went back and bought more after being so pleased with the first box.)
Here are a few more of my favorite ALDI Finds and sale items from the new week’s ad starting either 8/25/19 or 8/28/19 (although, even in Sunday markets, many of the new non-food Finds don’t release until Wednesday).
ALDI Food Finds this week
I know some of you have been waiting for this: Check out Earth Grown vegan oat-based ice cream pints in store this week, at just $2.99 each! These are different than the dairy free almond milk-based pints they had available in stores last month, so it’s worth taking another look if you were disappointed that their last batch of frozen non-dairy desserts were nut-based.
It’s also apparently some kind of bacon week? Clancy’s maple bacon flavored potato chips will run you $1.79, and Park Street Deli bacon guacamole (!) is $3.49. Also be on the lookout for Barissimo maple bacon ground coffee (12 oz for $3.79), Mama Cozzi’s 12″ extreme bacon deli pizza ($4.79), and Clancy’s bacon habanero pretzel slims ($1.99).
Here’s another product that’s always popular whenever it rolls around: Specially Selected classic or strawberry balsamic glaze, at $3.29 each. Stock up if you’re a fan, because this one doesn’t appear often. (I found it on an endcap by the register at my store.)
As for regular food finds: Look for a lot of stores to have whole boneless pork butt roasts on sale, at around $1.69/lb. (Make slow cooker salsa pork! It’s so good, so easy, and you have so many options for the leftovers.) Other meat sales revolve around Labor Day BBQs, such as big 5 lb packages of cheap 73% lean ground beef. (You can always freeze some for later…) On the produce front, grapes, strawberries, and blueberries will be on sale in many regions in this last-gasp-of-summer ALDI ad.
Aldi non-Food Finds this week
Look for an Easy Home three shelf floor lamp at $39.99 this week. I mention this one because I have the same lamp, which I picked up on 75% off clearance for $9.99 the last time these rolled around (different shade design than those in this week’s ad, but otherwise identical). It’s nice, but it’s not really a $39.99 lamp; I’d suggest you wait for it to go on clearance. (It’s pretty and the shelves are useful, but it doesn’t shed a lot of light. And the instructions? Well, they were simply terrible. I’m quite happy with it as a $10 lamp, but would not have been happy with it as a $40 lamp.)
Other furniture finds this week include a SOHL leaning bookshelf for $39.99 or curved back slipped chair for $69.99. Also look for Huntington home decorative woven baskets ($5.99) or energy-saving curtains ($9.99 each). Or for your laundry room, Easy Home 3-tier chrome shelving is $16.99 — or get a double sorter with ironing board for $29.99, or big comfort mat for by your washer for $7.99.
Garden mums are finally in my ad this week at $2.99, although they’ve already been out in store for a couple of weeks.
On the kitchen front, the main attraction this week is of course the Ambiano 9-in-1 electric pressure cooker for $39.99. (If you’re looking for a bigger 8 quart one, though, Best Buy has a Gourmia model on sale for $59.99 today only — and often drops their Insignia pressure cookers to comparable prices.) Elsewhere in small kitchen electrics, the Ambiano 8 cup deep fryer is also back, at $24.99.
Speaking of electric pressure cookers, ALDI has these mini springform pans for just $4.99 (oh, and cute little mini bundt pans, too). I’m thinking these should fit an Instant Pot (or Ambiano knockoff), because they’re the same size as the ones marketed for this purpose! So if you’re looking forward to making little cheesecakes, these might be worth checking out — I didn’t buy it, though, so let me know if it works if you decide to give it a try.
More kitchen stuffs: A Crofton 11″ induction fry pan or lightweight cast iron wok is $16.99, and these really pretty Crofton wood serving trays are $9.99 — but they unfortunately already looked scuffed up in store, and like they might crack easily. Also look for drawer and pantry organizers + stacking shelves, at just $4.99 each, and memory foam kitchen mats for $9.99 — plus Crofton 14 oz stainless steel vacuum insulated mugs with lid, $5.99 each.
