Posted by admin on

ALDI Finds for the week of 2/2/22 include vegan cheese sticks, meal prep containers, entire lobsters (!), money trees, and so much more.

everything franks in a blanket

Let’s talk frozen appetizers first today, if you’re looking forward to some easy football snacks. Back this week: Appetitos Everything Franks in a Blanket $3.99 per little box — and you can check out our review of these from last January, if you’re curious about them.

filled pretzel bites

While last week’s ad featured pretzel crisps and bakery pretzel bites, this week ALDI brings us frozen Appetitos filled pretzels bites. These are available in either pepper jack or cheddar, at $2.45 a box. Also on the cheesy frozen side: Appetitos buffalo chicken or bacon mac & cheese bites for $3.99.

vegan cheese sticks

And for the vegans among us: Try Earth Grown vegan cheddar or mozzarella sticks, $3.69 a bag.

Note that both advertised and unadvertised ALDI prices can vary by store and by region. But now, let’s talk about the rest of the top ALDI Finds for the week of 2/2/22. You’ll also Find some on 1/30/22 in Sunday ad markets, or if your store tends to put products out early.

aldi ginger beer

The ginger beer sports these striking octopus cans, if you’re wondering what that looks like…

And if you enjoyed the chili stir-in pastes the last time they were in stores, they’re available in the same four flavors this time: Carolina reaper, green jalapeño, yellow habanero, or harissa. Try these to give a pop of flavor to soups, veggies, and more.

salsa pork taco

What do you like to make with your big boneless pork roast? Me, I usually cook these up low and slow in the Crock-Pot to shred for pork tacos or to use in pulled pork sandwiches (They used to go on sale for even less, but given meat prices lately, we’ll go with this week’s $1.99/lb…)

Some nice new choices to refresh your bathroom and kitchen this week, plus cozy Valentine’s-themed clothing choices.

fleece lined aldi leggings

Look for the fleece-lined leggings in plain black or in heart patterns for Valentine’s Day, available in matching women and girls’ sizes. How cute is that? (This pic is of the same leggings a couple years back — the packaging may have changed slightly, but they’ve been selling the same ones every year.)

meal prep containers

ALDI’s meal prep containers are always useful when they roll around in stores, and this time they’re selling single or double compartment 20-piece sets for $4.99. (Note: This is 10 containers + 10 lids.) They stack nicely and are great for leftovers, meal prep, portion control, and lunches.

money tree from aldi

And money trees, they are back! This year they’re a buck more at $8.99. Mine from a previous sale is still coming back nicely after a traumatic cat-chomping incident, so I’d say that these are pretty hardy plants.

willow 1000 sheet toilet paper

If you’re a fan of Scott 1000 sheet toilet paper, also check out this week’s Willow 1000 TP. It’s generally more affordable than the equivalent 20 roll packs of Scott.

Before shopping for new Finds this week, you might wish to visit the ALDI Finds product delays page. Because of ongoing shipping delays and materials shortages affecting ALDI and many other retailers, certain advertised products may not be available in all locations.
