If your condiment game could use a refresh, consider this bruschetta topping the change you need. We've never had anything quite like it!

HOORAY for delicious new chicken sausage! These fully cooked links are flavorful but mild and under 100 calories a pop. NICE. The basil flavor pairs perfectly with Italian-style dishes. We used these to whip up some sausage & peppers in marinara, sprinkled with Parm. Yum! Grab a pack from ALDI's fridge section.

New favorite jerky alert! We love a delicious snack at a great value, and this is IT. The jerky is super soft and tender. The flavor is a little sweet and slightly tropical with a hint of heat. Mmmmm! We’ve seen similar-size bags from other brands go for THREE times the price. Stock up now…
