Posted by admin on

ALDI Finds for the week of 2/23/22 include donut bars, Italian Week, shepherd’s pie, and so much more. Check them all out below, and let me know what you want to Find this week!

frozen donut bars at aldi

Do-nut snooze on the frozen desserts at ALDI this week: Start your search for tasty treats with these Sundae Shoppe donut dessert bars, available in vanilla/chocolate or strawberry flavors at $2.99 a box.

italian ice cream cups

If those don’t float your boat, you might enjoy Specially Selected Italian ice cream cups, available in a pack of two for $3.79. Or, you can pick up a 28.5 oz tub of gelato for $3.99 — both of these, of course, among the Italian Week sales in this week’s ad. (More Italian Week Finds below.)

Note that both advertised and unadvertised ALDI prices can vary by store and by region. But now, let’s talk about the rest of the top ALDI Finds for the week of 2/23/22. You’ll also Find some on 2/20/22 in Sunday ad markets, or if your store tends to put products out early.

Top ALDI Finds of the week

In no particular order, here are 10 more of my top ALDI food Finds (plus some bakery bread and… Italian week!), plus, 25 top non-food Finds for this last week of February, 2022.

everything bagel sourdough bread

Please pardon just a brief detour through the bakery section first, though: This everything bagel sourdough bread accidentally jumped in my cart, so we’ll see if it’s as good as it looks. Your own Specially Selected everything sourdough loaf will run you $3.49 this week.

cristal buns

These Specially Selected cristal buns also look interesting, yet expensive, at $2.99 for this little pack. (If you try these, let us know how they are!)

Top ten food Finds this week

wasabi soy popcorn

Here are ten more interesting food Finds for your week:

  1. Clancy’s cheddar jalapeño or wasabi soy popcorn, $1.99
  2. Parkview Irish style bangers in original or ale & onion, $3.89
  3. Park Street Deli shepherd’s pie, $6.99
  4. In Real Life Foods spicy chicken or miso veggie ramen kit, $4.49
  5. Screamin’ Sicilian mother of meat pizza, $5.98
  6. Season’s Choice potatoes & green beans in rosemary or garden medley, $1.99
  7. Fremont Fish Market fish cakes, $2.49
  8. Cattlemen’s Ranch corned beef points, $2.99/lb
  9. Southern Grove dried mango multipack, $3.89
  10. Clancy’s pizza flavored pita puffs, $1.99

(In the past, corned beef points have gone as low as $1.99/lb before St. Patrick’s Day — but I’m not sure that will happen this year, given the price increases on meat.)

Speaking of price increases on meat, their Irish style bangers are up in cost this year too; now $3.89 a package (as opposed to $3.19 in 2021).

shepherd's pie at aldi

Oh, and I know a lot of you wait for the shepherd’s pie to show up again — so, take this opportunity to stock your freezer with an easy meal.

Italian Week Finds

potato spinach or whole wheat gnocchi

In addition to the tubs of gelato and the two packs of Italian ice cream cup treats, you’ll see a number of other Italian Week Finds in this week’s ad. One of my personal faves is always this Priano potato, spinach, or whole wheat gnocchi, at $1.69 per 17.6 oz package.

You might want to use your gnocchi, for instance, in this deliciously different recipe for sheet pan gnocchi with sausage + veggies.

spinach or garden herb tagliatelle bags

You’ll see no shortage of other pastas this week, either. Choose from:

  • 17.64 oz Specially Selected ribbon noodles, $2.49
  • 16 oz Priano long bronze cut pasta, $1.29
  • 6.5 oz Specially Selected gourmet tortellini, $2.99
  • 16 oz Priano bronze cut bucatini, $1.49
  • 16 oz Specially Selected spinach, mushroom, or garden herb egg tagliatelle, $2.99

Serve your pasta of choice topped with Priano gourmet pasta sauce, which is available in primavera, arrabbiata, or Italian sausage at $1.89 per 24 oz jar.

Italian sauce at aldi

And speaking of sauce, Cook House Italian simmer sauces might make for an easy dinner. Choose marsala, piccata, or scampi: $2.99 per 15.5-16 oz jar.

pancetta or balsamic vinegar chips

While you’re in the pantry Finds, check out these Specially Selected pancetta & parmesan or balsamic vinegar & rosemary kettle chips ($1.99 a bag), as well as Priano glazed puff pastries for $1.99.

veal patties at aldi

Oh, while you’re scoping out that gelato in the freezer section, you might also run across a box of veal patties to serve with your pasta. These are priced at $9.99 for a 27 oz box, which includes nine 3 oz pieces.

Lastly, over in the deli section, Appleton Farms diced prosciutto or pancetta runs $3.49 per 4 oz package this week. (This is up from $2.99 this past fall, so another little price jump on meat here.)

Top twenty-five non-Food Finds this week

hanging plant

ALDI this week is selling 8″ hanging foliage plants for $8.99. I bought one of these a while back as a little 8″ plant, and above you can see how it’s doing today! In the same pot and frankly semi-neglected, this hanging plant keeps going strong and growing like crazy; I can definitely recommend. Then, 25 more non-food Finds of the week include:

Good prices on some of these — the down alternative comforter is a nice deal, as is the shower curtain and hook set.

makeup removing cloths

I also have a set of the makeup removing cloths from an earlier sale, and they’re quite nice: They’re soft, they do the job, and they hold up well to washing.
