While every week there are new ALDI Finds, the 2021 ALDI Fan Favorites list shows that the popular grocery store chain offers the perfect blend of food trends and traditional offerings. Whether it is that weekly trip to discover a new food offering or stocking up on every day favorites, ALDI has become a leader in value and great products. There is a reason why everyone has that quarter ready in their car to ensure that any ALDI stop is a fruitful one.

In 2019, the brand launched its ALDI Fan Favorites. Over the years, the list has evolved, just like consumers’ shopping habits. From incorporating more plant based food to a taste of nostalgia, the shelves are always stocked with items that fit each and every craving.

According to Scott Patton, Vice President of National Buying, “ALDI fandom runs deep, and our customers are proud to share their enthusiasm for our exclusive products. Customers count on ALDI for low prices in every aisle. Despite the changes in shopping patterns throughout the past year, the number of repeat winners shows customers found comfort in their go-to products.”

According to the Fan Favorites survey, “71% of 2021 responded indicate that they shop at ALDI at least one or more times a week.” From that last minute dinner grab to the weekly shopping trip, everyone is always looking for those amazing, must have finds.

What food is on the 2021 ALDI Fan Favorites list?

This year’s list balanced iconic offerings, like the ALDI chicken breasts, with some new offerings. In total, the survey included 10 new categories.

Here is the complete list according to ALDI.
