Aldi Fall Products Roundup, Part 2: Food Items

It’s my favorite time of year at Aldi, when the aisles are filled with pumpkins, cider, desserts, candy, and decorations. I enjoy throwing on a cozy sweater and heading out to check out the Special Buys (ALDI Finds) for the season. This is Aldi Reviewer’s running post on fall food products at Aldi this year. Check out our other post on Aldi’s non-food fall products.

Come back later for new products and updates. Note that not all of these products will be available all season; check your weekly ad to see what deals will be in your store.

Aldi pumpkins

Aldi pumpkins

An Aldi pumpkin next to my hand, to show how big the pumpkins are.

Cost: $2.29 per large pumpkin at my local store (prices may vary depending on where you live)

Thoughts: I’ve been buying pumpkins from Aldi for at least a decade, and they are always affordable and long-lasting. I buy them in September, place them on my porch as decorations, and carve them with my kids in October. I’ve had uncarved pumpkins from Aldi last until Thanksgiving or longer on my porch. While I like supporting local family-owned pumpkin patches, I always have to buy a couple of pumpkins from Aldi each year. Don’t send your old jack-o-lanterns to a landfill at the end of the season either. Set them in an out-of-the-way corner of your yard or garden and allow them to decompose and turn into compost. (By the way, while these large pumpkins are technically edible, they don’t taste as good as the smaller pumpkins.)

Village Bakery Apple Cider or Pumpkin Pie Cookies

Cost: $2.99

Thoughts: These come in a 14-oz. package. While we haven’t sampled these fall-flavored cookies, we generally like Aldi’s Regular Buy Village Bakery cookies.

Village Bakery Apple Cider Donuts

Village Bakery Apple Cider Donuts

Cost: $1.99

Thoughts: These hearty donuts come six to a package. They are fine served at room temperature, but I like to warm one in the microwave for about 10 seconds. These donuts have a light coating of cinnamon and other fall-like flavors.

Wicked Grove Hard Cider Cinnamon

Wicked Grove Hard Cider Cinnamon

Cost: Check price in your local store

Thoughts: This comes in a carton with 6 12-ounce bottles.

Squash

Aldi acorn squash

Acorn squash from Aldi.

Aldi Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash from Aldi.

Cost: it varies. I bought spaghetti squash one week for 89 cents per lb. at my store, and the following week all squash was reduced to 49 cents per lb. and I bought an acorn squash

Thoughts: Aldi sells spaghetti squash, acorn squash, and butternut squash every fall. I bought my first spaghetti squash ever last fall and cooked it at home with butter and Parmesan cheese. It was not my family’s favorite vegetable, but I thought it was decent. I couldn’t resist buying spaghetti squash again this year. My spaghetti squash this year has a sticker that says it’s from Frey Farms in Keene, Illinois, which is in the region where I live, so it counts as locally produced squash for me.

Barissimo Caramel or Apple Crisp Ground Coffee

Barissimo Caramel or Apple Crisp Ground Coffee

Cost: $3.79 for 12 oz.

Thoughts: This artificially flavored light roast coffee comes in two fall flavors: Caramel or Apple Crisp.

Barissimo Maple or Crème Brûlée Coffee Cups

Barissimo Maple or Crème Brûlée Coffee Cups

Cost: $3.99 for 4.02 oz.

Thoughts: This is naturally and artificially flavored 100% Arabica medium roast coffee. It is fair trade certified and comes in Maple or Crème Brûlée flavors. This should work well in Aldi’s version of a Keurig coffee machine.

Millville Pumpkin Crispy O’s

Millville Pumpkin Crispy O's

Cost: $1.99 for 12 oz.

Thoughts: These are basically pumpkin Cheerios. They’re limited edition with no artificial flavors, no high fructose corn syrup, and no synthetic colors or preservatives. Pumpkin Crispy O’s will net you 12 grams of sugar per 1 1/3 cup serving, so they’re not a low-sugar cereal. They are made with real pumpkin puree and cinnamon, and they taste pretty good.

Specially Selected Pizzelle Cookies

Specially Selected Pizzelle Cookies Apple Cinnamon or Pumpkin Spice

Cost: $2.99 for 7 oz.

Thoughts: These delicate cookies come in Apple Cinnamon or Pumpkin Spice flavors.

Happy Farms Preferred Cheese

Happy Farms Preferred Apple Cinnamon, Salted Caramel or Golden Maple

Cost: $3.49 for 7 oz.

Thoughts: These are cheeses with fall flavors: Apple Cinnamon, Salted Caramel, or Golden Maple. They’re certainly unique. We haven’t sampled reviewed any of the flavors.

Specially Selected Caramel Corn Nut Mix

Specially Selected Caramel Corn Nut Mix

Cost: $2.99 for 7 oz.

Thoughts: The Specially Selected product line often includes gourmet and specialty snacks like this.

Kimberley’s Caramel Macchiato or Maple Pecan Filled Cupcakes

Kimberley's Caramel Macchiato or Maple Pecan Filled Cupcakes

Cost: $3.89 for 11.7 oz.

Thoughts: Kimberley’s Bakeshoppe is not an Aldi-exclusive product. You can read more about this cupcake bakery at this link. This bakery also sells cupcakes at Walmart, Kroger, and other grocery stores.

Kraft Caramels

Kraft Caramels

Cost: $1.95 for 11 oz.

Thoughts: This is one of the few name-brand items Aldi sometimes sells. Good for your fall baking and for making caramel apples. This same bag sold for $1.98 at Walmart at the time of publication, but Target had the lowest price at $1.89 at the time of publication.

Ghirardelli Salted Caramel Brownie Mix

Ghirardelli Salted Caramel Brownie Mix

Cost: $1.85 for 16 oz.

Thoughts: Aldi sells this name-brand brownie mix several times throughout the year, but it’s especially appropriate during the fall.

Ghirardelli Salted Caramel Cookie Mix

Ghirardelli Salted Caramel Cookie Mix

Cost: $2.45 for 15 oz.

Thoughts: This is another name-brand item Aldi sometimes sells in the fall. We are suckers for anything Ghirardelli.
