What Vegan Products Can You Buy At Aldi?
Aldi stores have been around for a very long time (since 1976 approximately when they started in 1946 in Essen Germany. They have locations worldwide, and have been one of the largest “employee-owned” franchises in the world. While they’ve always provided numerous fresh ingredients for cheaper prices, they’ve since jumped on the vegan bandwagon with their own brand of products that can only be found there. In this article, we’re going to show you some Aldi vegan product options that are similar to the popular stores that you may be able to find locally to tantalize your taste buds.
Aldi’s Friendly Farms Non-Dairy Creamers
These are based with caramel, vanilla, sweet cream almond, and coconut to give your cup of coffee a unique flavor that you could get from other varieties, just without the dairy products that are often involved.
Vegan Quinoa Crunch Burgers
These exceptionally healthy alternatives to beef-based hamburger patties are available at Aldi’s for a lower price than many other stores, offering a great patty for a more reasonable price tag. They’re loaded with black beans, sautéed red peppers, roasted corn, and of course quinoa, potato flakes, and other ingredients that make them tasty and filling.
Good Food Plant-Based Flavor Dips
These dips are veggie-based, and even cashew based (insert allergy warning there), with tantalizing flavors like avocado pesto, queso style, and even creamy cilantro to name a few. They’re great over a pile of nachos, or to just dip in, as well as an excellent dip to enhance some of your favorite snack veggies (we recommend spreading some queso style dip in a celery stalk for a yummy vegan snack).
Vegan Ice Cream?
While there are many ice cream and frozen yogurt chains that are fully vegan, it’s not always easy to find vegan ice cream in the grocery store that tastes just like it’s milky competitor. Made with almond milk, these vegan ice creams which come in a variety of flavors, are loaded with ingredients that can satisfy a sweet tooth on a hot summer day just like the rest of them, and what’s more? You don’t have to indulge in any animal byproducts whatsoever.
BBQ Chicken Patties and other Chicken Pattie Alternatives
There are numerous soy-based chicken patties that Aldi’s offers which are breaded, and taste just like many popular brands (like Con Agra Foods) chicken patties in flavor. You can easily throw them down in your fryer or bake them in the oven for the same great taste as you would a regular chicken patty, then top them with a bun, lettuce, tomato and mayo for an ultimate chicken sandwich.
There are even more alternatives that you can find at Aldi’s, but this is just a handful of them. Not only that, but Aldi’s has recently joined the greener organic movement for many of their foods (even their meats and animal products have become available as primarily organic, but we’re not talking animal products). All of their vegetables have also been cultivated in specialized green-houses which are 100 percent green and organic, not utilizing animals in any way possible (or so we’ve been told), so why not shop there and save money?
