15 Healthy and Delicious Items Coming to Aldi in October
Fall has officially arrived, and we couldn't be more thrilled for all the cozy bowls of chili, pumpkin-flavored coffee drinks and butternut squash soups coming our way. And, thankfully, Aldi is making festive fall dishes even easier to put together, thanks to a host of healthy new finds hitting store shelves this October.
From frozen sides to heat-and-serve soups, these tasty products will help keep your stress levels down during this busy time of year, while still being able to get a nourishing meal on the table. Check out our top picks below, so you'll know what to add to your grocery lists come October 2:
Barissimo Coffees of Fall
You may have already begun experiencing pumpkin spice-flavored coffee fatigue, and that's totally OK with us. Luckily, Aldi's got your back for a festive cup of joe that isn't completely dedicated to pumpkin spice.
While there is a Pumpkin Pie flavor, this variety pack of coffee pods has all sorts of other delicious autumnal flavors, like Cinnamon Sticky Bun, Salted Caramel and Apple Pie for a delicious morning brew. You can snag this pack of 12 for $6.99 starting October 16th.
Emporium Selection Fall-Flavored Goat Cheese
Color us intrigued. Aldi has taken three of our favorite sweet fall flavor combos—Apple-Cinnamon, Pumpkin Spice and Salted Caramel—and put them in a tangy goat cheese for just $2.49 per log. We will definitely be adding these to our shopping carts come October 2nd.
Season's Choice Risottos
Give. Us. All. The. Fall. Risottos. These two new options—Butternut Squash and Pumpkin Spelt—are as healthy as they are delicious. Low in saturated fat and sodium and high in whole grains, veggies and spices, they're sure to become your go-to side dishes in the coming months. A one-pound bag costs just $2.99 and will be available starting October 2nd.
Barissimo Pumpkin Spice Variety Pack
Pumpkin spice enthusiasts, please stand up! This coffee pod variety pack comes with pumpkin spice-flavored coffee, hot chocolate and cappuccinos for whatever form of pumpkin spice you're craving this fall. You can snag a pack of 36 pods for $14.89 come October 16th.
Park Street Deli Dessert Hummus
If you haven't tried dessert hummus, you're missing out! (Yes, really.) And Aldi has some of the best-tasting options, according to a recent taste test. Now they are adding two new festive flavors to the mix—Pumpkin Pie and Snickerdoodle—and we need them ASAP. You'll find them for $3.49 a piece starting October 2nd.
Specially Selected Pasta Sauces
If your idea of pumpkin spice means enjoying this gourd with a kick, you'll love Aldi's new Pumpkin Chipotle pasta sauce. And if you prefer to keep things a little less spicy, the Pumpkin Butternut Squash is a great alternative. You can find jars of these in stores starting October 2nd for $2.49.
Stonemill "Who Needs the Bagel?" Seasoning
Aldi can finally become a true one-stop shop for you, thanks to this new addition. They are finally selling one of our favorite seasoning blends! This one from Stonemill is offered at a great price too—just $1.95 per bottle. Be sure to mark that calendar for October 9th when this hits stores.
Whole & Simple Power Bowls
This isn't your average frozen dinner—and that's a good thing! These delicious-looking grain bowls from Aldi's Whole & Simple line are seriously nutritious single-serve dishes packed with protein, veggies and whole grains. Plus, each bowl is perfectly portioned at either 330 or 340 calories for an easy but healthy choice at work. They'll be available October 16th for $2.99.
Peanut Delight Peanut Butter Spreads
Even pumpkin spice haters won't be able to resist trying one of these glorious peanut butter spreads. Offered in Maple and Pumpkin varieties, we can just imagine how delicious these will taste in a dip, with apples or just on their own! You'll be able to buy them starting October 16th for $1.99 per 12-ounce jar.
Simply Nature Organic Soups
If you're not a big fan of pumpkin soups, there are two more options from Simply Nature you *need* to check out this month. Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato, Pumpkin and Butternut Squash both fit our sodium guidelines and are a delicious way to eat more veggies. They'll be available on October 2nd and 16th for $1.99 per pound.
Whole & Simple Skillets
Need to get dinner on the table in a hurry? Look no further than these new heat-and-eat skillet meals from Whole & Simple. Choose between Sesame Chicken and Thai-Style Coconut Curry for a meal packed with veggies, whole grains and protein that the whole family will love. Just watch out for the sodium content if you are controlling your salt intake—the curry meal is a little higher than we'd typically like. But it's still way healthier than takeout!
Barissimo Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew with Almond Milk
Just one last pumpkin-flavored beverage, we promise—and we'd like to think we saved the best for last. This new, dairy-free cold brew option is packed with all the pumpkin spice flavors you love, but is (thankfully) missing a lot of the sugar found in popular pumpkin coffee drinks. At just 80 calories and 13 grams of sugar per cup, this is a healthy indulgence you can feel better about drinking. Plus, it's just $2.29 for a 32-ounce bottle. Get your taste buds ready for October 9th!
Park Street Deli Soups & Bisques
We just can't get enough of Aldi's latest soup selections, and these Park Street Deli options look extra tasty. Offered in Butternut Squash Bisque and Chicken & Wild Rice Soup, these hearty soups will do some heavy lifting when you don't feel like cooking. Just be sure to check the nutrition label for sodium if you're watching your intake. These 16-ounce soups will be available on October 16th for $2.85.
Season's Choice Fall Veggie Blends
We have a feeling this seasonal side is going to be on repeat throughout fall. Made with butternut squash, spinach, red onions and cranberries and tossed in a garlic-herb sauce, we can't wait to pick a bag of this frozen veggie blend when it debuts on October 23rd. This product will save you not only time, but also money, coming in at $2.99 per pound.
Benton's Fall Cookie Thins
Save the sugar rush for November and December while still indulging your sweet tooth with these adorable Cookie Thins. Offered in Snickerdoodle and Pumpkin Spice, a six-cookie serving will only set you back 130 calories and 10-12 grams of sugar. We'll be adding both to our carts ASAP once they hit Aldi stores on October 2nd. You'll be able to find a four-ounce bag for $2.29 each.
Season's Choice Riced Cauliflower Stuffing
We don't have much info about this product just yet, but we couldn't help but share the exciting news. Riced Cauliflower Stuffing is about to be the side of Thanksgiving 2019, mark our words! You'll be able to find it on October 30th for just $2.89.
