Aldi has over 37 different wines priced under $10, however prices may vary by store. Before stocking up, read this buyer's guide to the best Aldi wine.
Since wine is a popular staple at Aldi, it's logical to assume that so is chocolate. The German company is reportedly working with many European suppliers, which means they also have a lot of imported treats, including chocolate. At Aldi, you can find high-quality delicious chocolate for as little as $2 for 4,4 ounces.
Aldi sells tons of different types of bread including brioche, whole grain bread, scones, Italian bread, bagels, even English muffins and more. Their bread not only has solid reviews, but is also sold at an affordable price. Their fresh white bread sells for about $0,89, making it more attractive than the average retail price for white bread in the United States of $2,46.
A 16-ounce oil at Aldi reportedly costs $2,56, which is cheaper than what you can find at Kroger (although Walmart offers the same price).
As with chocolate, Aldi has excellent cheeses from herbal cheddar to gouda. According to some reports, these fancy flavors range in price from $2 to $5. “The best thing is that Aldi has won numerous awards for their amazing cheeses so you can be sure they are of the highest quality,” says Jeremy Harrison, founder of Hustle Life. “Aldi can sell its products at a lower price simply because they have low overheads.”
Yes, Aldi has even more dairy products at reasonable prices. A 32-ounce Aldi yogurt costs $3,69, while a serving of yogurt costs $0,39 each.
While paper plates aren't necessarily the most economical purchase since they're meant to be single-use, sometimes you just can't bring yourself to do the dishes anymore. The price is what makes Aldi paper plates so appealing to the lazy. Some price comparisons even show Aldi prices rivaling those of Walmart. In addition, Aldi paper plates can often be found in the hot deals section.
Anything you can find in a tin can, including stock, beans, tomatoes, applesauce and various vegetables, can be bought at Aldi. Plus, they have the same selection as other grocery stores. One blogger found canned food at Aldi for just $0,65 each.
Add other baking essentials to your basket filled with butter and chocolate. Kiplinger says baking essentials like flour, sugar and butter are cheaper at Aldi than other high-profile brands. For example, the store brand Aldi Baker's Corner sells a 32,8 ounce bag of brown sugar. for $1,29 compared to Domino Light Brown Sugar, which retails for $2,69 for a 32-ounce bag at Kiplinger.

Anything from the Red Hot Specials
Aldi's hot deals section is exactly what you think - even better deals on your favorite items. The retailer updates special deals on its website weekly so you can see what deals are available at an Aldi store near you. Don't miss out on these important promotions your grocer won't tell you about.
Aldi products have mixed reviews for quality. Their prices, however, are undeniably competitive with some items such as apples, strawberries, blueberries, and avocados that retail for less than Costco, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe's.

“Milk at Aldi is so cheap that new customers double-check the labels to make sure it's not past its expiration date,” says Roderick. “Price does not always mean premium, and the reverse is also not true. Aldi proudly guarantees that all of their milk is free of artificial growth hormones, which are fillers commonly used by cheaper brands to increase fluid volume.”
Aldi has an extensive selection of their own cereals. Many of these cereals contain natural colors and are sugar-free, making breakfast more tasty and healthy.
Every Wednesday, Aldi offers a "Fresh Meat Special" which is usually top quality meats such as brisket or pork chops at very low prices. These deli meats sell out quickly, so it's best to go early.
