Belmont Egg Nog Ice Cream and Peppermint Bark Ice Cream

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 Peppermint Bark Ice Cream and Egg Nog Ice Cream

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.
