Jul 19 2021

Spotted on Shelves… ALDI Haul Edition!

Earth Grown Vegan Meat Free Chickenless Patties

1 patty (2.5 oz.): 140 calories, 5g total fat (0g sat. fat), 380mg sodium, 14g carbs, 4g fiber, 0g sugars, 9g protein — SmartPoints® value 3*

These frozen patties are from ALDI's exclusive Earth Grown line of vegetarian and vegan options, and we are officially fans. They taste just like chicken! The texture on the inside reminds us of shredded chicken, and the outside is super crispy — just what you want for a fried-chicken sandwich swap. Grab a box from the freezer aisle on your next trip.

Park Street Deli Homestyle Guacamole Singles

1 mini cup (57g): 100 calories, 9g total fat (1.5g sat. fat), 220mg sodium, 4g carbs, 2g fiber, 1g sugars, 1g protein — SmartPoints® value 3*

Who doesn't want to add a little guac to their day? Some pre-made guacamoles are sour, but this is perfectly simple with a fresh flavor. Find the single-serving cups with the refrigerated dips, and give any meal or snack an easy upgrade!

Simms Artisan Jerky in Spicy Garlic

1 oz.: 80 calories, 1.5g total fat (0.5g sat. fat), 310mg sodium, 6g carbs, 0g fiber, 6g sugar, 11g protein — SmartPoints® value 2*

Yay for another great protein snack to add to our pantry! This pork jerky is definitely impressive. The flavor is slightly sweet with a nice level of garlic. Plus, it’s soft and tender in a way we love. (Super dry and tough jerky is a bummer.) If you're looking to replenish your snack stash, this is a yummy new addition.
