Halloween at Aldi, Part 2: Food Items

Aldi has everything you need to celebrate Halloween, from decorations to candy. Aldi sells so much name-brand Halloween candy we can’t list it all here (Hershey bars, Snickers, Starburst, and more), but this is a look at some of Aldi’s other Halloween food products this year.
