Five on Friday: Aldi Finds

It has been ages since my last Five on Friday post. I thought I would bring it back to share some of the great things I’ve been getting at Aldi.

I love shopping at Aldi. They have carts that fit two kids. They have unbelievably cheap produce. They have great snacks. They have random crap that I just can’t live without (kids Wonder Woman long underwear, folding step stools, Mickey Mouse watches, lawn furniture, etc.)

Five of the things I’ve been picking up lately are:

Take and bake pizza ($5.49)

Pretzel Twists ($1.49)

We both love them. I usually buy two bags at a time, as we have developed a bit of an addiction.

 

 

 

 

Salt & Pepper Pistachios ($5.49)

Chickpea Snacks ($2.89)

I often roast my own chickpeas, but for this price I am spending more money making my own. These are consistently crunchy, whereas the ones I make my own are not. I will probably continue to make my own occasionally, but not until the winter when I’m happy to have my oven on for an hour.

 

 

Spanish Cheese Sampler ($4.29)

20180503_1618291027379010.jpgThis is just the right amount of cheese for when you are throwing a cheese plate together for a group of 2-4. It’s an instant cocktail party – just add some grapes, some nuts, and some wine. I love that the cheese comes sliced, which makes it easy for serving.
