For the most part the changes have been positive. Aldi has been increasing their line of organic products in their stores, especially so in the past 5 months. I have been super impressed with this and appreciate the less store juggling I have to do every month. Here is a list of organic products and just generally healthy products (less to no processing) I have found. By no means is this list exhaustive. Your local Aldi may not carry all of these or it may carry more. I also wrote a post about “What’s Worth Buying At Aldi” reporting all their prices on the groceries I regularly buy.
The Aldi organic label is called Simply Nature.
Organic Agave Nectar 11.75 oz $2.49
Organic Spinach 5oz. $2.49
Refrigerated Almond Milk Half Gallon $2.49 (not organic however they do carry Organic Soymilk in Vanilla and Plain)
Organic Apples 3lb $4.69 ($1 more than Trader Joe’s per lb right now)
Oscar Meyer Angus Beef Hot Dogs Nitrite Free $2.99 (wow, on special)
Extra Fine Green Beans Frozen (compare to Trader Joes) $1.49
Instant Brown Rice $1.49 (great price, Minute Rice at Kroger was $2.49)
Old Fashioned Rolled Oats $2.19 (price change WAS $1.99 last year)
Roasted Salted Almonds 12oz $4.29
Kidney Beans Can $.59 (their cans are lined with BPA plastic, so not the best)
Black Beans Can $.59 (their cans are lined with BPA plastic, so not the best)
Sweet Potato Chips $1.99
Hummus Quartet 4 Flavor Sampler $3.99
I have been loving Aldi Hummus lately, they have Red Pepper Hummus, Garlic Hummus and Regular Hummus for $1.99
They also have changed their stores around lately. So if you go give yourself a little more time to find what you are looking for. Aldi truly is awesome. They also carry delicious coffee, half n half, lunch meat (no nitrite free yet), imported cheeses, cheap cereal, grits, butter, salad dressings and everything you need for baking. Since they opened an Aldi I RARELY go to Publix or Kroger anymore. It’s just Trader Joes and Aldi for me!
But less Trader Joes with the increase of Aldi organics!

PS Aldi did not pay me for this post however if you represent Aldi, I would say the same thing to you that I would say to the Land o Lakes company. YES! Contact me for sponsorship!
