Each week we highlight a few of the more interesting items in the upcoming Aldi weekly 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 kitchen items, Valentine’s Day treats, several interesting restaurant-branded foods, miscellaneous home goods (including a sewing machine), school and office supplies, bedding, clothing and footwear, and some stuff for kids.
Remember that Aldi has been stealth releasing some products, with some items that were not advertised showing up in stores. This is due to shipping delays and supply chain snarls. Therefore, you may never know what you might find on the shelves at your local store. All the more reason to plan a shopping trip to Aldi.
The Most Interesting Thing We Saw:
- Crofton Awesome Pan, $24.99. This looks to be the Aldi version of a name-brand Always pan. It’s available in Matte Black, Beige, or Dusty Blue and is made without PFOA or PTFE. Fusion Ti nonstick coating allows for easy release. It’s made with a long-lasting aluminum lid and a stay-cool, Bakelite handle. The aluminum body provides uniform heat distribution.
