Are you hosting a 4th of July celebration this year? Or perhaps you are having a fun summer party or maybe having a fun day at the beach with your friends. We love hosting summer parties here in the Frugality Is Free family, and we’ve been having lots of beach trips with friends this summer. This is why we always make sure to have plenty of easy party food in stock, and for that we head to ALDI.

best snack foods from ALDI

ALDI’s summer catalog is full of fabulous, easy party food, and we are thrilled to see that some of our favorites from previous years have returned.

ALDI Sun Umbrella

We were also excited to pick up an affordable beach umbrella at ALDI this year. It comes with a twistable bottom, and it has a carrying case, which makes it easier to setup and pack up.

 

ALDI Watermelon

 

One of our all-time easy party food options at ALDI is the very affordable, very tasty, perfect solution for any party whether at home, in the park or at the beach – watermelon. We usually buy the watermelon at least five days in advance of any party that we are having, as this means it will be perfectly sweet on party day. We can cut it up the night before, leave it in the fridge until party time, and it is also easy to transport to the beach.

ALDI’s brownies are always a hit both for special treats and as party food, and this summer we gave ALDI’s Brownie S’mores a try. They turned out to be a big hit around here, and they were perfect for a little beach party with good friends. You can find lots of great summer recipes at the ALDI website.

ALDI has lots of affordable chips, and one of the favorites at our outings and parties are Clancy’s Fiery Hot Cheese Curls.

ALDI Hot Cheetos

 

 

We also make sure to stock up on fig newtons and ALDI cookies, as these are great-tasting affordable snack options to bring along in the beach bag, the pool bag or simply for a play party in the back yard.

  32. The nearest Aldi is about half an hour away from me, and unfortunately I do not go as often as I like. I go once every two to three months.

  42. I love ALDI and shop there all the time. For a summer party I’d stock up on their Brenner Ice Tea, Fit and Active lean ground turkey for burgers and Parkview Hot & Spicy Sausages.

  43. I really miss shopping at Aldi. Aldi has some of the best food products I’ve ever tried for the price. The potato chips, cereal, canned foods, frozen meats, produce and the best milk price in town! If I could win, it would be nice to make a trip back to Aldi’s.

  51. I would definitely need to stock up on some ice cream and some fruit. That way, you can add something healthy and delicious to something a little less healthy and delicious!

  52. I’m a huge fan of our local Aldi! I often stock up on meatless “burgers”, fresh veggies, bags of salad, and organic fruit!

  53. I visit Aldi at least once a week! The closest Aldi to me is about 3 miles away – not bad at all!

  96. I want Ribeye steaks!! oh YUM. And the Kirkwood Chicken thighs! And fruit. Fruit salad, potato salad.. I LOVE aldi

  97. I LOVE Aldi’s prices!~ I have two Aldis.. “near” me. hahah well, each one is more than 30 miles away. BUT so worth the trip. I do not have to keep a tally of money spent there. I never ever go over my budget at Aldi!

  98. I would stock up on chips, buns, mustard, ketchup, juice, pop and everything else I could possibly want for a party.

  99. We love to have a bonfire a couple of times a summer- hot dogs, smores etc. Aldi has it all!

  100. We buy almost everything there

  101. I would choose the frozen pizzas because you can never have enough frozen pizzas. Pizza goes with everything. I would get the Crisp Rice because after pizza you need to make some honest-to-goodness crispy treats for deserts. They taste best homemade. I also liked that handy dandy trunk organizer for $7 and some change. It had a built in cooler!

  121. They have a great price on the “Mama Cozzi’s Pizza Kitchen Original Pizza” this week.

  122. We have an Aldi located a little ways down the road from us. I haven’t been to Aldi in many years, but I may be stopping there on Sunday for some of their pizzas.

  123. I would buy the Fresh Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts. I’m always having BBQ’s in the summer and alot of my guests enjoy grilled chicken.

  124. We really like to buy our produce from Aldi. They have a better selection than Wal-Mart and their stuff is always cheaper

  125. We love Ice cream for the summer, so I would just be natural to choose the BENTON’S JUMBO WAFFLE CONES. We love to drink BENNER ICED SWEET TEA and cherry cobbler and pie are one of our favorite desserts so we would pick up the BAKER’S CORNER CHERRY PIE FILLING These are the items that I would choose for our party.

  126. Love Aldi’s for their low prices , visit it once per month to stock up and we will drive way across town to get there – about 45 minute drive

  137. Love Aldis because they have really good products for less than the grocery stores with name brands. I would give the gift card to my parents who go to Aldis at least twice a week.

  138. I love Aldi’s because they have an amazing produce section for wonderful prices !!! I would have to keep this for my self 🙂

  139. I like anything with the Tate brand name, because it’s my daughter’s name. Things like ketchup and relish. Works wonders in summer.

  140. I’d start off with some fresh fruit for an appetizer, some rib eye steaks and corn on the cob for the grill, then some cherry pie filling and a graham crackers pie crust to make a pie.

  141. I am so lucky, there is an Aldi store about eight blocks away from me, so I go a couple times a week so I can always get fresh produce at a great price. It’s so close and convenient and has most of the things I need, so it’s a no-brainer.

  142. we live about 8 miles away.we love the prices.great deals there

  143. Fresh baby back pork ribs would complete the summer party at my house. I mean who does not love ribs!

  145. We love aldis! They have the best salsa and chips around! Great cheeses, frozen foods & fresh produce.

    YUM!

  146. I love Aldi’s – Their ice cream is delicious. Also love their brand of chips – Nacho chips – Taste better than famous name brands.

  147. Aldi’s is the greatest! I would get some of the fruit for a fruit salad and some pork chops for grilling. I also like their hummus and ice cream bars. Everything is so fresh and delicious!

  148. All their fruits look so good! I would love to have the organic apples.

  149. I would get all of the fruit and drinks at Aldi and maybe some cute decorations to spice everything up.

  150. I like the fruit prices at Aldi. We buy watermelon, strawberries, blueberries and mango’s. They are such good prices that I buy extra and freeze them. You can use the frozen fruits to make smoothies which are great for summer parties.

  151. I go to Aldi to stock up at least 3 times a month. We are blessed in that there are 3 Aldi stores in easy driving distance from our house. I alternate between them since they have different items on clearance and love looking for their special items.

  152. My summer party is all about eating healthy. The chicken thighs would be great for a barbeque and the fruit deals would make a great fruit salad.

  153. Id buy an assortment of produce for a fruit and veggie tray

  154. Aldi is unfortuneatly not that close to my work or home, but I like to stop by when Im near one on my way from school. I love Aldi

  155. Our nearest Aldi’s is located 11 miles away, in Malone NY, we go there about once a week.

  156. My family would most enjoy the sweet tea and the pies look great also – especially the cherry one!

  157. I would take Fresh fruit, trail mix & flavored water

  158. My children would love the sundae shopppe swirl poppera, they look delicious.

  159. Ooh…I would love to get some of the Bacon Cheddar Seasoned Beef Burgers! $5.99 is a great price! We could have friends over for a BBQ. And make some of their Parkview Brats. And serve some of their Nature’s Nectar lemonade! All at great prices!

  160. I’m embarrassed to say that I still have never gone to Aldi, even though I pass it frequently. Our closest Aldi’s is only 6 miles away!

  161. For my summer party I would get the Benner Sweet tea, some Cherry pie and hamburgers!

  162. Aldi is about 20 minutes away, I try and go there once a month depending on specials

  163. I shop there all the time

  164. Definitely the sweet tea, blueberries, strawberries, apples, salad, and the triple chocolate sundae cones! While it isn’t in the Summer ad, I’d also have to have their brats. Those are the best!

  165. I almost always buy our fresh vegetables and fruit at Aldis, its always fresh and costs less than grocery chains. I would buy a big selection of fruit and have a nice fruit salad for our get together.

  166. I visit Aldi every one to two weeks. It is very close to us, about 5 miles away. I always bring a tote bag to carry my produce so I don’t even need a cart or bags.

  167. We DID use Aldi’s for beans, chips, buns, tea, soda, and fruit on the Fourth!

  168. We visit Aldi at least twice a week, sometimes more. It is our go-to for PRODUCE, which we eat a lot of, bread, cheese, salad fixings, drinks, and trail mix (my favorite.) We never cease to be amazed at how MUCH we can get there, how far we can stretch our grocery money. We are lucky, the Aldi store is less than a mile away!

  169. I shop at Aldis every week, and I love their fresh produce! I would buy fresh, seasonal fruit (melon, grapes, nectarines) and make a delicious fruit salad!

  170. I just got some great deals at Aldi’s: red onions, carrots, tomatoes on the vine, and bananas. I agree that the produce is good quality at low prices.

  171. I love just about everything that comes from ALDI…the fresh produce and fruit are the best! I also get all my other staples there. Great place to shop!

  172. I shop at ALDI almost every week, my store is only about a half mile from me.

  173. I love the everyday low prices on their milk! I also like their almond milk since my daughter can’t have soy or regular dairy milk. It’s a great place to start saving if you don’t have time to coupon, or need to grab a few items quickly. The cashiers I’ve met have always been very quick to check me out, which is a great bonus! Their special buys are pretty awesome too! We love the chocolate almond milk when it comes out. (We secretly wish that they would make it a permanent product!) We also go there for produce, but here it isn’t always as fresh as we’d like it to be, so we are a little picky about it. We also like the fact that they sometimes mark down their meat with $2 off or 50% off coupons! When we find these gems, we stock up! (But we don’t clear the shelf) While the bread can be a good deal, we pass on it now due to the azodicarbonamide content. We find azodicarbonamide free bread for $1 or less at our local Sara Lee/Bimbo thrift bakery and freeze it.

    • Forgot to mention that our closest Aldi is probably only about 7 miles from our house. We shop there about every week to 3 weeks, depending on sales at other stores.

  174. I have really enjoyed having an Aldi’s again. My college aged daughter went with me the other day and was impressed that some of the items have the same “healthy” aspects as Trader Joe’s. For instance, the milk was hormone free too.

  175. We didn’t have an Aldi’s near our last home and when we moved a few weeks ago, I was thrilled that there were 2 in this city. Right now, I am 2 1/2 miles from our house and it’s on the way to everything else we do so it’s convenient to stop by at any time.
