I’m a sucker for a good dish of ice cream, and Aldi sells a couple of holiday-themed ice cream flavors every year that catch my eye.
Belmont Egg Nog Ice Cream and Belmont Peppermint Bark Ice Cream sold for $2.89 for a 1.5-quart (1.41L) container at the time of publication. They are limited-time ALDI Finds, so you’ll want to get them before they sell out.
Their primary ingredients are milk, cream, skim milk, buttermilk, and sugar, plus their respective peppermint bark or egg nog components. They advertise that they contain no high fructose corn syrup, but they do contain corn syrup. They also have a number of processed ingredients, including carob bean gum, tara gum, guar gum, and carageenan.
If you want ice cream made only with simple, whole ingredients, your best bet at Aldi is the Specially Selected ice cream, which is available in vanilla and chocolate.
Belmont Egg Nog Ice Cream
This ice cream consists of egg nog-flavored ice cream with nutmeg spice, and it tastes like Dean’s egg nog in ice cream form. It’s smooth, creamy, and has that classic nutmeg flavor. I can see the nutmeg flecks in the ice cream itself.

Belmont Peppermint Bark Ice Cream
This ice cream consists of peppermint ice cream with peppermint bark pieces. It does not have pieces of hard peppermint candy in it, but it does have a generous amount of white chocolate-like peppermint bark flakes that add interesting texture and melt in your mouth.

Aldi’s Belmont Egg Nog Ice Cream and Belmont Peppermint Bark Ice Cream are good choices if you’re looking to add a little holiday cheer when you indulge in ice cream. The egg nog ice cream tastes just like Dean’s egg nog, while the peppermint bark ice cream has plenty of peppermint bark flakes. It’s difficult to pick which flavor is best, so get both!
