Each week we highlight a few of the more interesting items in the upcoming Aldi ad. Note that, in our area, the ad takes effect on Wednesday, but in some areas it may take effect as early as today, Sunday.
This week’s theme is Easter food such as ham and desserts, Easter basket toys and gifts, kids’ bedding and room décor, outdoor gear for spring weather, items for pets, and workshop or garage accessories.
The Most Interesting Thing We Saw:
- Appleton Farms Carving Ham, $3.29 per lb. We haven’t yet tried this specific ham, but in our experience every other ham we’ve purchased at Aldi has been a winner, from traditional spiral sliced hams to hams with more natural ingredients.
