When I was a kid, I had a few favorite things I loved eating at home for lunch. On days when I wasn’t at school and relegated to eating cafeteria fare, I often enjoyed a bowl of Campbell’s tomato soup or New England clam chowder. Or, as unhealthy as it was, I loved eating ramen noodles. I preferred the shrimp flavor, even if it doesn’t really taste much like shrimp.
I still like ramen, and so does my entire family. We don’t eat it often, but it’s nice to keep some packages in the pantry, especially for times when we’re sick and the noodles and hot broth with steam are comforting. Ramen is also good to keep around in case of power outages because we can prepare it on our gas stove or even make it outdoors on our portable camp stove.
We usually eat our ramen in regular soup or cereal bowls, and that works fine. However, the latest Aldi ad indicates the grocer is selling specialty ceramic ramen noodle bowls made just for serving this popular comfort food. Aldi sold the ramen bowls alongside a variety of other kitchen products with an Asian theme, including a bamboo electric grill, a stir fry wok, a bamboo steamer, a rice cooker and steamer, a Teppanyaki grill plate, and an Asian knife assortment. At the same time, Aldi also sold a stone serveware tray with a pattern matching the ramen bowls.
These cute little ramen bowls include chopsticks and feature a custom hole in the upper rim designed to hold the chopsticks when they aren’t in use. Keep reading for more information about the bowls.
What We Know:
The Crofton Ceramic Ramen Noodle Bowl (Product Code: 703046) cost $4.99 each in February of 2023. That’s cheaper than ramen bowls I found on Amazon at the time of writing. The designs and colors on these bowls rival some more expensive ramen bowls I found on Wayfair as well.
This bowl is an Aldi Find, so it’s only in stores for a short time. Each store receives one shipment, and after that sells out, they’re gone unless Aldi decides to bring them back at some point. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products that are not in stock at your local store.
Here’s more information about the ceramic ramen bowls, according to Aldi:
- Includes a ceramic bowl with bamboo chopsticks
- Bowl has a 21-oz. capacity
- Available in White Noodle Bowl, Blue Flower, or Green Speckled designs
- Bowls match stone serveware and trays that are sold separately
