This Week at Aldi: The Ad for October 7, 2020

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 Halloween decorations and Halloween food, yardwork tools, kitchen products, bedding, and several food highlights.

While you’re here, you can also check out some of our other Halloween-related posts:

The Most Interesting Thing We Saw:

Mama Cozzi's Pizza Kitchen Halloween Pumpkin-Shaped Pizza


  • Mama Cozzi’s Pizza Kitchen Halloween Pumpkin-Shaped Pizza, $3.99 for an 8.11-oz. pizza. This is sold frozen, and it’s not your usual pizza. That’s because it has a butternut squash sauce instead of the traditional tomato-based pizza sauce. The package states this has “a crispy crust topped with a creamy butternut squash sauce, cheddar cheese, mozzarella eyes and a mascarpone cheese sauce.” We’re not sure if this will taste good, but we’re definitely intrigued.
