As an Aldi employee shopping for one, I always pick up a few essentials from the freezer section.
The Fusia Asian Inspirations shrimp-and-avocado rolls and Kirkwood chicken breasts are easy meals.
For dessert, I like to grab the Sundae Shoppe keto ice cream in the peanut-butter-fudge flavor.
The Season's Choice frozen fruit is handy for smoothies.
The Season's Choice frozen fruit at Aldi is an essential. I'm a smoothie enthusiast but I'm not good at keeping fresh fruit ripe, so having a frozen option is everything to me.
I also find that the frozen fruit selections at Aldi cost about half of what I've seen at other stores. On my most recent trip, I picked up a $3.40 bag of Season's Choice frozen strawberries.
Mama Cozzi's pepperoni pizza snacks taste more expensive than they are.
Aldi always makes sure to have its own store-brand versions of household staples and Pizza Rolls are no exception. I think Mama Cozzi's pepperoni pizza snacks are a dead-ringer for the Totino's version.
To anyone who disagrees with me, I say pizza bites in general are a far shot from gourmet (even if they're tasty). I'm sure the middle-school children of the world won't notice the difference.
Season's Choice plain or garlic-herb riced cauliflower is a great alternative to rice.
The Season's Choice frozen riced cauliflower easily checks so many boxes. It's a low-carb swap for traditional rice and comes plain or seasoned with garlic and herbs.
You can dress the cauliflower up or serve it as a side with a multitude of foods. The versatility of cauliflower rice is unparalleled.
I think it's a must-have if you meal prep or are counting your macros.
The LiveGFree General Tso's chicken is full of flavor.
I know how pricey and bland gluten-free items can sometimes be, but customers seem to like Aldi's LiveGFree products across the board.
I personally enjoy the frozen LiveGFree General Tso's chicken. The chicken is flavorful, moist, and most importantly, gluten-free.
I keep Nature's Nectar frozen orange-juice concentrate in my freezer.
Instead of crowding my fridge with orange juice in a carton, I buy the frozen concentrate.
I recommend purchasing a couple of the frozen Nature's Nectar orange-juice concentrates to pop in the freezer.
I keep them on hand so I can have orange juice to add to my Champagne or serve at all those last-minute brunches I host. Finding space in my refrigerator can be difficult so I appreciate the smaller concentrate option when I need to have juice.
The Kirkwood breaded chicken fillets are a customer favorite.
If you regularly shop at Aldi, odds are you know about the internet-famous Red Bag Chicken. I think the Kirkwood breaded and frozen chicken-breast fillets taste similar to what you can get at Chick-fil-A.
The Kirkwood chicken breasts fly off Aldi's shelves. Though they're a tad pricier than your basic chicken patties, I believe they're worth the $8-per-bag price.
No matter if you're creating a fast-food dupe or serving it by itself, the fillets have seemed to cement themselves as an Aldi favorite for a reason.
The Breakfast Best sausage-and-gravy or meat-lovers bowls come together quickly.
For me, making breakfast is one of the worst parts of waking up. If you struggle to find the time in the mornings, try one of the Breakfast Best sausage-and-gravy bowls.
I've eaten many breakfast bowls during my first break on my early-morning shifts. After a couple of minutes in the microwave, I get a satisfying breakfast. The sausage-and-gravy versions are basic enough that you can level them up with another egg, more sausage, or whatever spices you prefer.
I snack on the Sundae Shoppe keto ice-cream pints for dessert.
If you have a sweet tooth, I highly recommend the Sundae Shoppe keto ice cream. Each flavor contains 5 grams of protein per serving.
The dessert is packed in convenient pint-size containers and comes in a variety of flavors that consistently sell out. Personally, I love the peanut-butter-fudge option.
In my opinion, Aldi's ice-cream offerings are consistent and tasty alternatives to the pricey name-brand competition.
The Fusia Asian Inspirations frozen sushi assortments hit the spot.
A frozen shrimp-and-avocado roll might sound unconventional, but the prepackaged frozen Fusia Asian Inspirations version is tasty if you prepare it right. The brand also has a California-roll option.
To make, just microwave the rolls in 20-second intervals until the rice is soft. Sushi lovers can't always be bothered to get takeout and this frozen version can serve as easy dinner.
