8 Foods I’m Buying in the Aldi Flyer This Week

If you want to save money at Aldi, you need to check out their weekly ad. Every Wednesday, Aldi releases their weekly circular for grocery specials, including price reductions on foods like meat, produce, and snacks, which you can find on the circular or by searching the red and white “Aldi Savers” signs throughout the store. I go to Aldi every week to do most of my grocery shopping, and this week’s Aldi ad (May 15 – May 21) had a few products that I really like. If you’re wondering what I picked up, here’s my list.

Remember that not all stores carry the same products, so the weekly specials at your local store can be slightly different from mine. Next week’s Aldi flyer will drop on May 22. Make sure to come back here, and I’ll let you know what’s on my shopping list.

1. Fresh Maui Pineapple Atlantic Salmon – $9.99 per pound

Aldi’s Cedar Plank Atlantic Salmon with Pineapple Maui seasoning is usually $10.99 per pound (which is already a great price), but it’s currently on sale for $9.99 per pound. Make sure to pick this up if you’re craving a seafood dish this week. 

2. Washington Pink Lady Apples – $2.89 per 3 pounds bag

Another Aldi Savers item at a big discount this week is Washington Pink Lady Apples. A three-pound bag usually goes for $3.89, but the price is reduced to $2.89 right now. If you’re not sure what to do with an entire bag of Pink Lady apples, fear not – they’re very versatile and can be used in a myriad of ways.

I love using these in baking for pies and tarts, but I’ve also used them in salads before, and they add a nice crispy crunch. Mostly, I like to eat these apples plain or with a little bit of peanut butter for dipping.

3. Vidalia Onions – $1.59 per 2 pounds bag

Onions are another ingredient I go through fairly quickly, so I took advantage of the sale at my local Aldi for these Vidalia Onions. I got a two-pound bag (which is around five or six onions) for less than $2.

These are sweet and mild, making them perfect for sandwiches or pickling. They also caramelize very well, which is what I plan on doing with them.

4. Park Street Deli Beef Brisket – $7.99

For just under $8, you can pick up a hefty portion of Pulled Beef Brisket or Sliced Beef Brisket. Both options are found in the premade meal section of Aldi and are covered in barbeque sauce. They’re already fully cooked, so you only need to heat them up in the microwave for a few minutes before dinner’s on the table.

You can pair this brisket with some mac and cheese and collard greens for a super quick Southern comfort-inspired meal, or put the meat on some slider buns with coleslaw for an easy protein-packed weeknight dinner.

5. Taste of the South Fried Pickle & Ranch Dip – $3.79

Now, this is a dip! I’m not sure where Fried Pickle and Ranch Dip has been all my life, but I’m just grateful that it found its way to me. It’s made with real cream cheese, sour cream, chopped dill pickles, and ranch seasoning.

It can be served warm or cold, but I prefer it cold. Serve it with ruffled potato chips, carrots, and celery for a snack. It would also make a great sandwich or a spread for your sub.

6. Mama Cozzi’s Pizza Kitchen BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza – $6.99

Mama Cozzi has done it again, folks! The newest pizza in Aldi’s lineup features smoked pulled pork, BBQ sauce, onions, and mozzarella for a mashup of summer BBQ and classic pizza.

This can be baked in the oven for around 13 minutes, but I’m excited to try it on the grill. In fact, the packaging recommends it. I’ve never tried this method of heating pizza, but I’ve heard it gives the crust a nice crunch and a slightly charred flavor.

7. ALDI Steakhouse Potato Salad – $3.29

Nothing says “summer” like potato salad. I can’t think of a better side to go with burgers, hot dogs, and corn on the cob. That being said, making potato salad from scratch can be time-consuming, from chopping and boiling potatoes to mixing in mayo and waiting for everything to chill in the fridge for a few hours.

This premade potato salad is the perfect solution. It’s super creamy and packed with flavor, and the potato chunks are just the right size and texture. I only wish it came in a larger package because I can easily eat this whole thing in one sitting!

8. Heart to Tail Frozen Dog Treats – $2.65

My dog goes feral for frozen treats, so I pick up a pack of Heart to Tail Frozen Dog Treats once a month when I visit Aldi. With the weather getting warmer, there’s never been a better time to let your pup try these cooling treats.

My dog is pretty small, so one cup of doggie ice cream usually lasts him around three days. Considering a pack of four is just $2.65, that’s an insanely good deal!
