Easter at Aldi

Easter at Aldi

Appleton Farms Boneless Spiral Sliced Ham

Appleton Farms Bonless Spiral Sliced Ham

Cost: $2.99 per lb.

Thoughts: My family has eaten several of these hams over the years for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. These are fully cooked and just need to be heated in the oven, and they typically include a glaze packet. They are easy to serve because they are pre-sliced, and they feed a crowd. The leftovers are great for dishes like tetrazzini or quiche. This particular ham claims to be boneless, which is a shame because a leftover ham bone with bits of meat still attached is great for ham and bean soup or Cheesy Broccoli and Ham Soup.

Appleton Farms Carving Ham

Appleton Farms Carving Ham

Cost: $3.29 per lb.

Thoughts: My family hasn’t purchased this ham, but it’s pricier than the Appleton Farms Boneless Spiral Sliced Ham, so I would expect it to be a higher quality.

Frick’s Whole Carving Ham

Frick’s Whole Carving Ham

Cost: $3.29 per lb.

Thoughts: Again, my family hasn’t purchased this ham, but we assume it would be quite good.

Never Any! Spiral Ham

Never Any Spiral Ham

Cost: $3.49 per lb.

Thoughts: Aldi’s Never Any! product line includes lunch meat, chicken sausage, and fresh chicken that are free from steroids, antibiotics, and more. My family has not tried the Never Any! Spiral Ham, but if it’s anything like Aldi’s other Never Any! products, then I’m betting it’s good.

Specially Selected Lamb Leg Roast

Specially Selected Lamb Leg Roast

Cost: $5.99 per lb.

Thoughts: This is sold frozen and comes in unseasoned or rosemary and garlic flavors.

Orca Bay King Crab Legs

Orca Bay King Crab Legs

Cost: $16.99 for 16 ounces.

Thoughts: If you like your Easter meal to be more upscale, you can’t go wrong with King Crab Legs. These are wild caught and sold frozen.

Reggano Easter Pasta

Reggano Easter Pasta

Cost: $1.89 for 17.6 ounces

Thoughts: This bunny- and egg-shaped pasta comes in plain or tri-color varieties. Pair it with your favorite jarred sauce or homemade sauce.

Village Bakery Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies

Village Bakery Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies

Cost: $2.89 for 10.5 ounces

Thoughts: You get four carrot cake sandwich cookies with a creamy filling. I would love to try these, but they have raisins, which are a deal breaker for me.

Baker’s Corner Spring Marshmallows

Baker's Corner Spring Marshmallows

Cost: 89 cents for 10 oz.

Thoughts: These egg-shaped marshmallows come in strawberry, lemon, lime, and orange flavors.

Specially Selected Easter Cookie Tin

Specially Selected Easter Cookie Tin

Cost: $4.99 for 15.9 oz.

Thoughts: A collection of Belgian chocolate cookies that certainly looks tempting.

Lunch Buddies Spring Fruit Snacks

Lunch Buddies Spring Fruit Snacks

Cost: $3.99 for 25.2 oz.

Thoughts: This box contains 28 fruit snack pouches. The snacks are made with real fruit juice.

Choceur Premium Chocolate Easter Bunny

Choceur Premium Chocolate Easter Bunny

Cost: $2.29 for 4.23 oz.

Thoughts: Each of my kids is getting one of these in their Easter baskets. They are classic hollow chocolate bunnies, and they are large but not crazy big. Just the right portion size.

Choceur Chocolate Easter Figurines

Choceur Chocolate Easter Figurines

Cost: $2.99 for 8.8 oz.

Thoughts: This milk chocolate candy comes in shapes like bunnies and eggs.

Choceur Chocolate Surprise Egg

Thoughts: These are large chocolate eggs that open to reveal smaller chocolate egg-like candies inside.

Choceur Milk Chocolate Coins

Choceur Milk Chocolate Coins

Cost: $1.99 for 4.58 oz.

Thoughts: These chocolate coins come in a mesh bag and are covered with foil with images of chicks, bunnies, and other Easter figures.

Choceur Solid Milk Chocolate Eggs

Choceur Solid Milk Chocolate Eggs

Cost: $1.99 for 7.05 oz.

Thoughts: These are classic foil-wrapped chocolate eggs.

Crazy Candy Co. Gourmet Jelly Beans

Choceur Hollow or Solid Milk Chocolates

Choceur Hollow or Solid Milk Chocolates

Cost: $1.69 for 3.5 oz.

Thoughts: These are foil-wrapped chocolates shaped like bunnies, chicks, and other Easter figures.

Choceur Milk Chocolate Hollow Eggs

Choceur Milk Chocolate Hollow Eggs

Cost: $3.49 for 7.05 oz.

Thoughts: Just another choice when it comes to Easter chocolate at Aldi. These eggs are slightly larger than Aldi’s solid milk chocolate eggs.

Choceur Mini Bunnies, Butterflies or Lambs Fine Chocolate

Choceur Mini Bunnies, Butterflies or Lambs Fine Chocolate

Cost: $2.99 for 4.41 oz.

Thoughts: These are made in Germany and are Utz Certified.

Choceur Marzipan Mini Eggs

Choceur Marzipan Mini Eggs

Cost: $2.99 for 7.05 oz.

Thoughts: These are available in milk or dark chocolate.

Specially Selected Chocolate Truffle Eggs

Specially Selected Chocolate Truffle Eggs

Cost: $3.49 for 5.29 oz.

Thoughts: These imported chocolates come in a variety of designs.

Choceur Easter Bunnies & Eggs Mix

Choceur Easter Bunnies & Eggs Mix

Cost: $3.99 for 7.58 oz.

Thoughts: These are insanely good. I am not typically a fan of chocolates with fillings, unless the fillings happen to be peanut butter or caramel. The fillings in these eggs and bunnies are almost irresistible, though, with flavors that include raspberry cream strawberry cream, milk cream, and praline. These may not survive long enough to make it to my children’s Easter baskets.

Crazy Candy Co. Lollipops

Crazy Candy Co. Lollipops

Cost: 99 cents per 1-oz. lollipop

Thoughts: I bought some of these for my children’s Easter baskets. They are sold in bunny or egg shapes, and I opted to buy the bunnies. My Aldi cashier commented on how cute they are.

Choceur Chocolate Flame Egg

Choceur Chocolate Flame Egg

Cost: $4.99 for 12.35 oz.

Thoughts: I’ve never purchased one of these before, but perhaps I should because, well, it has the name flame egg. Read a review from someone else here.
