Condiments are an underrated capstone to many meals, especially those around the lunch hour. Whether it’s about adding some ketchup to a hot dog or putting some mayo on a ham and cheese sandwich, condiments add something extra to whatever protein and / or starches one is serving.

Aldi offers a range of condiments, including the staples usually seen at cookouts, and for very reasonable prices. In this post we’re going to look at several Aldi condiments in the Burman’s product line. (Aldi also sells pickles and sweet relish as part of its Great Gherkins label that we won’t be looking at today, although we regularly use both and we like them.)

One limitation regarding Aldi condiments: aside from the ketchup, they typically come in just one size. That means you won’t find giant vats of mayonnaise or tiny pocket-sized bottles of mustard. For most people this shouldn’t be a problem, as the sizes Aldi sells are, in my opinion, perfect for the average family. Even single people may be fine with the sizes, as condiments tend to last for a long time in the refrigerator. But if you’re a person who only rarely uses condiments — or if you want something small enough to, say, fit into a camping cooler and you don’t want to improvise a solution — Aldi may not have exactly what you’re looking for.

Burman’s Tomato Ketchup

Aldi product packaging is nothing if not shameless, and it’s clear enough with its ketchup, which looks an awful lot like Heinz. Black font? Check. Green border? Check. Random neck label? Check.

Burman’s Tomato Ketchup comes in a 38-ounce squeeze bottle, which can be flipped upside down as it gets lower for easier dispensing. Aldi also sells a smaller bottle of ketchup. We’ve generally found the bottles easy to open and use, and we’ve found it tastes pretty much like any other ketchup we’ve ever had.

One tip: as it gets lower sometimes the water will separate just a little from the tomato sauce, which we’ve had happen with other ketchups, too. A little shaking before dispensing helps a lot with that.

Simply Nature Organic Tomato Ketchup

If you want a ketchup that does not have high fructose corn syrup, this is the option for you at Aldi. The ingredients are: organic tomato puree (water, organic tomato paste), organic sugar, organic distilled vinegar, salt, organic onion powder, and organic spices. (It would be nice if Aldi would say specifically what kinds of organic “spices” they use.)

At $1.49 for a 20-oz. bottle at the time of publication, this costs more than Aldi’s traditional ketchup, but it also costs less than name-brand organic ketchup at other stores like Walmart or Target. You also get more ketchup in the Aldi bottle (20 ounces) versus the bottles of organic Heinz ketchup (14 ounces).

Burman’s Traditional Yellow Mustard

If you’ve ever bought French’s Mustard, there’s a good chance the packaging on Burman’s Traditional Mustard is going to look familiar. It comes in a solid yellow container with a pop lid.

As with the ketchup, it dispenses easily enough. Also, as with the ketchup, the water can sometimes separate, causing liquid to run out if you’re using it for the first time in a while. (This happens with other mustards, too.) The solution, again, is a little bit of shaking before squeezing.

Taste-wise, it tastes like … well, mustard.

Burman’s Dijon Mustard

Burman's Dijon Mustard

Maybe the most famous dijon mustard comes from Gray Poupon, which ran a series of famous commercials back in the 1980s and still sells its product in small glass jars. But Burman’s packaging is intended to be a copycat of French’s Dijon Mustard, which is sold in a more conventional squeeze bottle. Like the French’s dijon, this can be placed upside-down for storage as needed, especially as it starts to run out. The Aldi stuff has that classic dijon mustard flavor.

The Aldi dijon is a good imitation, with that distinct touch of white wine flavor that is unique among mustards.

Burman’s Spicy Brown Mustard

Burman’s Spicy Brown Mustard might take its visual cues from Gulden’s product of the same name, but it also looks a lot like most other generic spicy brown mustard containers. Like the dijon, it can be flipped upside down when needed, and it has just that tiny bit of kick that we expect from spicy brown mustard.

Burman’s Real Mayonnaise

Burman’s Real Mayonnaise comes in a clear label-wrapped plastic jar that bears an inescapable resemblance to Hellman’s Real Mayonnaise, right down to the yellow and blue color scheme. The taste and texture also fit the bill, with the smoothness and flavor that we would expect from the name-brand mayo.

The Verdict:

It sounds like a broken record, but all of the Aldi condiments taste like their national brand counterparts, and for a lot less money. The one downside is that most Aldi condiments typically only come in a single size, so if you’re looking for something larger or smaller, you’ll have to look somewhere else. For most people, though, Aldi condiments do the job just right.

    I use most of these condiments. However, I do not think the ketchup from Aldi is comparable to Heinz ketchup. No one makes a ketchup as good as Heinz and Heinz does not make kitchup for other brands.

    • I disagree, it’s very comparable while not exactly the same the flavor profile and intensity of flavor are very close.

  2. Kimberly Anderson

    You did not cover the organic ketchup that Aldi carries! It’s awesome it’s the only one I buy. Aldi’s organics what they do carry, are awesome, that’s what I’m always looking for is organic at a decent price
    And Heinz is only that good because it has all that extra sugar in it.

    • I agree the Heinz ketchup is hard to beat. I do think the mayonnaise is close to the name brand and I do use it although if I catch the name brand on sale bogo or at 1.99 which is rare then I will get the limit on them usually two limit.

    • The post has been updated to include the organic ketchup.

    • I agree about the organic ketchup it’s me and my husband’s favorite even over Heinz and Hunt’s

  3. I am 77 years old and had Burman’s Mustard for first time ever. It is by far the BEST MUSTARD I have ever had. It is the only one I told my wife to buy in the future….Thanks for a great product Aldi… is very delious

  4. I actually prefer the Aldi Dijon Mustard over Grey Poupon… it has a smoother less tart flavor. And the Simply Nature Ketchup strikes the right fresh tomato balance.

  5. As a resent big fan of Simply Nature brand organic Ketchup from Aldi I was surprised it is no longer red, but a BBQ sauce brown. What gives. With an exp date of April 16, 2022.

  6. Using utilitarian theory, I was exclusively a heinz ketchup fan for 70 years. Now, I get the same utils from eating Aldi’s ketchup as I do with Heinz ketchup but I get a lot of extra utils by saving more than 50% on a bottle.

  7. I thnk they changed the mayo, its just not the same anymore, dispaointing.

  8. They did change the mayo – the ingredients on the label are different now. We think/guess it used to be Hellmann’s and now it’s Duke’s, reading the ingredient labels of all for comparison.

  9. What do they call the dressing that’s similar to Miracle Whip ?
