I’m a huge Aldi fan – they’re my go-to stuff, including $3 bottles of wine
An Aldi super fan has revealed her must-haves, including a $3 bottle of wine and plant-based chicken nuggets for less than $3.
Rachel Fernandez, a vegetarian who has been shopping at the thrift store for more than four years, has revealed her shopping list.
$2.95 Bottle of Winking Owl Wine
One of Fernandez’s favorite things to buy at Aldi is a bottle of Winking Owl wine.
She writes: “People either love them or hate them, but these dangerously cheap bottles of wine have become well known in the Aldi community.
“I think some varieties are better than others on their own, but they’re also great for cooking or making batch drinks like sangria or punch.”
A bottle is only $2.95
$2.95 Earth Grown Chicken Free Vegan Tengers
Another favorite item of Fernandez’s is Earth Grown’s chicken-free offerings.
Fernandez explains, “Aldi has an impressive range of vegan and vegetarian products under its Earth Grown brand, and these chicken-free fillets are one of my favorite meat alternatives on the market.”
She suggests baking or deep frying them for a crispy, crunchy texture.
“They make for an incredibly nostalgic meal when you run out of food in the school cafeteria,” adds Fernandez.
A box of nine chicken-free fillets costs $2.95.
$4.99 Mama Cozzi’s Cheese Pizza
Fernandez also likes to buy Mama Cozzi’s 16-inch take-out pizza, for just $4.99, at Aldi.
In his opinion, the pizza is “much cheaper and better than most delivery places.”
She also claims the pizza is “so big” it can feed a crowd of people.
“The cheese option is a perfect canvas for your own toppings,” says Fernandez.
“One of my favorite combinations is caramelized onions, garlic and marinated artichoke hearts – all of which are on this list – but the possibilities are endless.”
Additional Favorite Items
In total, Fernandez made a shopping list of 16 of his favorite Aldi items.
Three other items on her list were canned beans ranging from $0.55 to $1.98, oat milk for $2.99, and a jar of artichoke hearts for $2.69.
The remaining 10 items on his list are non-refrigerated items, a large jar of salsa, cucumbers, a bag of steamed mixed vegetables, veggie simmering sauces, a jar of pasta sauce, a package of corn tortillas , a box of mac-and-cheese, dill pickle nuggets and Moser Roth chocolate bars.
