Wanna fake out your family and make them think you made a creamy cauliflower casserole from scratch? Empty a bag of this ALDI-exclusive frozen cauliflower & creamy cheese sauce into a baking dish, then cook until it's browned and bubbly. (You can also microwave it for a shortcut.) And with a calorie count that low, why not double your serving?! Such a great side dish or meal starter. Pssst… There’s a broccoli version too!

Savvy Snax String Cheese Bites with Grilled Cheese Flavoring

4 pieces: 80 calories, 5g total fat (3g sat. fat), 220mg sodium, <1g carbs, 0g fiber, 1g total sugars (0g added sugars), 7g protein

After getting past the initial confusion with this mini string cheese—Do we peel them? Do we bite them?—our heads promptly exploded from the deliciousness. It's not a gimmick: This cheese really does taste smoky and grilled! The petite size makes them great for kids, but the amazing flavor makes them great for anyone. Savvy Snax products are sold at other stores too, but we've yet to see these bites anywhere but ALDI.

Snacks From the Sun Popped Corn Crisps in Vegan Nacho Cheese

1 oz.: 130 calories, 4.5g total fat (0g sat. fat), 270mg sodium, 20g carbs, 2g fiber, 1g total sugars (0g added sugars), 2g protein

These tasty popped chips got spontaneous applause—it was love at first chomp! The flavor reminds us of cheesy Doritos with an extra taco twist and just the right amount of heat. We love that they're vegan, but really, anyone would fall in love with these crisps. Find them at ALDI locations.
