I love Aldi. If you’ve been following me for a while you saw that almost all my pumpkin items for Sometimes Foodie’s Pumpkin
Week Month came from Aldi.
If you’ve never heard of Aldi, it’s a small grocery store chain that originated in Eastern Europe. (I actually went to an “Aldi” in Austria when I went to Eastern Europe about 2 years ago. There it has a different name, but it’s the same logo and store.) The chain has no-frills products for low prices, as well as some name brands, produce, and occasionally random gadgets. When I say random, I mean random. I’ve bought a pressure washer, electric kettle, and kiddie pools from Aldi over the years.
Recently, the no frills products have gotten kind of…frilly. I mean look at this box! It actually has a very sophisticated design (for a no-frills product). There is a bright green, eye catching, back ground and a beautiful photo of the crackers inside. Even the typography is very well done. Aldi is really stepping it up!
Inside the box is a plastic sleeve containing the product. The crackers are a bit larger than a traditional Ritz cracker, but slightly thinner.
These smell delicious, like buttery crackers and spinach dip.
Taking a bite, the crackers have a flake-y crunch (again, a lot like a Ritz cracker) with a nice buttery taste. As you chew, you start to taste a bit of the vegetable flavor. The flavor isn’t overwhelming, and it blends very nicely with the buttery cracker.
These taste rich and delicious, and don’t cost a pretty penny. I paid 1.50 for the box and it has already survived a week of my snacking. I still have 1/4 of a sleeve left. If you want something yummy, or something that looks fancy for a party, try checking these out at your local Aldi.
