Not long ago, Aldi temporarily sold a crab rangoon dip that was instantly popular. In keeping with seafood-themed dips, Aldi recently introduced another crustacean dip: Park Street Deli Lobster Roll Dip.
Park Street Deli Lobster Roll Dip cost $3.29 for a 12-oz. container at the time of publication. It’s an ALDI Find (Special Buy), which means it will only be in stores for a short time, so get it while you can.
As you might expect with a food like this, the ingredients list is lengthy and contains a lot of processed items. The primary ingredients are mayonnaise, surimi, water, and lobster. People with allergies should be aware this contains crustacea (crab, lobster, shrimp), eggs, fish (pollock and/or whiting), milk, soy, and wheat.
One serving is 1/3 of a cup, which nets you 330 calories, 30 grams of total fat (38% DV), 5 grams of saturated fat (25% DV), 700 mg of sodium (30% DV), 10 grams of total carbohydrates (4% DV), 0 grams of dietary fiber, 4 grams of total sugars, 2 grams of added sugars (3% DV), and 4 grams of protein. Keep in mind that if you eat this with crackers, bread, or anything else, it will add calories and a different set of nutritional values.
Lobster rolls are sandwiches commonly found in New England and parts of Canada. Wikipedia says they consist of lobster meat served on a grilled hot dog-style bun. The filling may also include butter or mayonnaise, lemon juice, black pepper, salt. Some versions might include diced celery or scallions.
Since this Aldi product is a dip, my family did not eat it sandwich style but rather ate it with tortilla chips and crackers. We found it to be very tasty. It seems to have very large or very small chunks of meat in it, with not a lot of medium-sized pieces. Still, we all enjoyed it. It would also be good served with fancy bread, rolls, or pitas.
Park Street Deli Lobster Roll Dip takes the best of a New England classic and offers it up in the perfect form to eat with crackers, chips, or whatever you eat with dip. It’s not the healthiest food out there, but it’s a tasty occasional treat.
