In Honor of Pi Day, Here are Our Favorite Aldi Pies

Pi Day at Aldi

Today is March 14th, which means it’s Pi Day. Pi Day refers to a mathematical constant of pi: the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. The first three figures of pi are always 3.14 no matter the size of the circle.

In 1988, a San Francisco science museum physicist named Larry Shaw founded Pi Day, which lands on March 14th, or the third month of the year and the 14th day of the month, or 3.14. Staff and the general public would march around one of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s circular spaces and then eat pies, as a play on words. Pi and pie are homophones, or words that are pronounced the same but have different meanings and potentially different spellings.

In 2009, the U.S. House of Representatives designated March 14th as National Pi Day. People celebrate Pi Day by eating pie, or even throwing pies, or competing to see who can recite the number pi to its highest decimal place. (Pi is an irrational number, meaning that its decimal form doesn’t end or become repetitive.) Restaurants, pizzerias, and bakeries sometimes get in on the fun during Pi Day by offering promotions.

I’m not sure Aldi has ever acknowledged Pi Day, but the discount grocer does sell pie throughout the year. Here, in honor of Pi Day, I’m listing some of our favorite pies from Aldi. Keep in mind that this is an opinion piece and is not meant to be an exhaustive list of Aldi pies. Feel free to chime in in the comments with your own favorite Aldi pies, but do keep our community guidelines in mind.

Also, most of these pies are limited-time Aldi Finds or Seasonal Items unless otherwise noted. That means Aldi doesn’t stock a lot of these pies year round. Instead, they’re sold only at certain times of the year, while supplies last. If these pies aren’t currently in stock at your local store, you can’t order them online from Aldi.

Belmont Chocolate Crème Pie

Belmont Chocolate Creme Pie

This seasonal chocolate crème pie from Germany features “rich chocolate and whipped crème layers in a chocolaty cookie crust.” This has a creamy filling and the crust reminds me of Oreo cookies, and it’s one of my favorite pies from Aldi.

Belmont Apple Pie and Belmont Cherry Pie

Belmont Cherry Pie and Belmont Apple Pie

These frozen Aldi Find apple and cherry pies tend to show up around the winter holidays. They’re classic fruit pies, and they’re great served with whipped cream or a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. These are classics.

Bake Shop Pumpkin Pie

Sold in time for Thanksgiving, this is a decent store-bought seasonal pumpkin pie if you need easy, quick pumpkin pie.

Belmont Pie Bites

These Aldi Finds aren’t traditional pies, but these pie bites are fun and delicious. They’re sold frozen and come in coconut cream, banana cream, and key lime flavors, and they all include a little bit of graham cracker crust and are covered in “chocolaty coating.”

Bake Shop Bakery Pecan Pie

This Aldi Find pecan pie shows up in time for Thanksgiving. It’s not a bad store-bought pie for your holiday gatherings.

Baker’s Treat Apple Pie and Cherry Pie

Baker's Treat Pie

These Regular Buy apple and cherry pies aren’t your usual pies, but I remember handheld single-serve pies like these being a sugary lunch box staple back when I was a kid. (Although my mom never bought them.) They also remind me a bit of McDonald’s pies. They’re cheap, sweet, and easy to heat in the microwave for a treat.

Park Street Deli Shepherd’s Pie

Park Street Deli Shepherd's Pie

So, this isn’t a sweet pie, but it is still a type of pie, so I’m including it here. Aldi sometimes sells this Aldi Find shepherd’s pie around St. Patrick’s Day. It features seasoned minced beef and veggies in a savory tomato sauce topped with mashed potatoes. Some people might say this is more appropriately called a cottage pie, as true shepherd’s pie contains lamb or mutton. Regardless of what you call it, we like this.
