Whether you’re hitting the road or hanging local, a trip to Aldi should be the number-one stop you make this summer. This is pretty much always the case, but it’s especially true next month, when Aldi will release 131 new and returning groceries that are all about ease and affordability. There are portable snacks, ready-made starters, dinner shortcuts, and more — all for $6 or less! There’s also a pack of pink-hued ice cream sandwiches (with sprinkles!) that we can’t wait to try.
Here are the 10 items we’re most excited about.
1. Park Street Deli Cookie Butter Hummus, $2.49
Make room on your fruit platters and snack spreads: This Cookie Butter Hummus is back and, ICYW, it’s a returning favorite. Sweetly spiced and reminiscent of classic speculoos cookies, the dip is gluten-free and vegan and can be found in refrigerator cases on July 13.
2. Simply Nature Seaweed Snacks, $1.89
You are going to love how crispy, delightfully salty, and portable these roasted seaweed snacks are. Available on July 13, you may want to consider stocking up for any future road trips you have (or haven’t yet) planned.
3. Simply Nature Almond Butter Filled Pretzels, $4.99
These almond butter-filled pretzels don’t come in a 1.5-pound bag like some other nuggets. But. But! They’re likely just as salty, creamy, crunchy, and delicious as their peanutty counterparts and are available starting July 13. Bonus: The bag is also resealable and great for summer road trips.
4. Journey To… Greece Spanakopita, $4.49
Of all the Greek-inspired groceries dropping this month (looking at you, tzatziki-flavored kettle chips), these spanakopita are the ones you should seek out … first. Available on July 13 in the freezer section, the spinach and cheese appetizers are the (party) starter for your next backyard hang.
5. Park Street Deli Texas Caviar, $3.29
Speaking of party snacks everyone will love, this Texas Caviar (sometimes called cowboy caviar or even Dixie caviar, depending on the recipe) is a fresh, flavor-packed, and welcome addition to any occasion. For the record, this one contains diced tomatoes, black beans, corn kernels, green and red peppers, and onions. It’s unlikely, but should there be any left over in the morning, it goes great with scrambled eggs, too. Look for it on July 20.
6. Whole & Simple Tahini & Chickpea Protein Bowl, $2.99
Whole & Simple has several budget-friendly, heat-and-eat meals hitting shelves this month and this Tahini & Chickpea protein bowl — made with rice and veggie blends, plus white and green garbanzo beans — is bound to be a new favorite. Find it, along with the Edamame Energy Bowl, Adobo Chicken Grain Bowl, Korean Inspired Beef Bowl, and more, in the freezer section starting July 13.
7. Mama Cozzi’s Pizza Kitchen Hot Honey Pepperoni Pizza with Pretzel Crust, $5.49
If this pizza sounds like a lot, it’s only because it is (in the best way, of course). It’s everything you love about pepperoni pizza, with the added sweet heat and salty flair from the hot honey and pretzel-style crust. And it’s available on July 27.
8. Loma Linda Plant-Based Taco Filling, $2.99
Shelf-stable and ready in just 60 seconds, this plant-based taco filling is sustainably sourced and the start to a quick and easy taco night. Just add tortillas and the aforementioned Texas Caviar and call it dinner. It’s available on July 13.
9. FatBoy Sugar Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich, $4.48
While the classic chocolate and vanilla ice cream sandos are always a winner, this pink-hued variation is pure delight. Made with premium sugar cookie ice cream and sprinkles sandwiched between two graham cracker wafers, you can find them in the freezer section on July 27.
10. Nature’s Nectar Sparkling Watermelon Raspberry Natural Soda, $3.79
Sold in packs of four, these fruity, fizzy drinks are perfect for those post-latte, pre-rosé hours in the day — and for sampling. In addition to Watermelon Raspberry, the sparkling sodas are available in Blueberry Lemon and Elderflower Lemon flavors. You can find all three in stores on July 13.
