There are so many reasons to love Aldi, whether you're into the store's healthy foods at lower prices or fun monthly Aldi Finds. Because of its affordable groceries and unique offerings, Aldi has a serious fan following—so much so that over 360,000 regular customers (71% of those who voted said they shop at Aldi at least once a week!) have voted on their most-loved products. The results were compiled into the "Fan Favorite" awards program, which was originally started in 2019.
Last year's Fan Favorites included products such as Winking Owl wine, EZ Peel Raw Shrimp, avocados, Earth Grown veggie burgers and more. This year, however, there are some new products on the list (as well as some repeat items from last year). You can easily spot these products at your local Aldi store by looking for items with a heart-shaped blue "Fan Favorites" logo.
