Whether you’re a new or devoted ALDI shopper, you can always count on fellow ALDI lovers to share their must-have buys, best kept secrets and favourite new products. After putting the call out for the annual People’s Picks awards, thousands of loyal customers across the country voted to reveal the most-loved products of 2022.
While there were some returning favourites in the mix, new winners have also joined the ranks. The Boneless Butterflied Chicken, available in two marinade flavours Greek Style and Spiced Mango, has taken the #1 position. Being pre-marinated and only $9.99 per kilo, it is the perfect one dish dinner, and a convenient, delicious and affordable protein choice the whole family can enjoy. Another new addition at an amazing price point is our Logix Platinum Dishwashing Tablets, which made their debut on list this year, for just 21c per wash and best-rated by both Canstar Blue and Choice, it’s a winner all round!
ALDI shopping expert Kylie Warnke says ALDI is excited to announce this year’s People’s Picks, the must-have items shoppers love filling their baskets with this year.
“This year’s People’s Picks favourite products are all excellent recommendations and with nothing over $10, value is the clear winner! It’s great to see a number of past winners retain their status as our Aussie shoppers’ favourites – including Blackstone Vegetable Straws and Brookdale 100% Pure Canadian Maple Syrup. These awards shine a spotlight on products that go above and beyond our customers’ expectations when it comes to quality, convenience and price.”
“From our $8.99 Urban Eats Spanakopita (Time Lord winner) going viral on TikTok, to our $1.99 Deli Originals Fresh Hommus (Life of The Party winner) which fans consistently rave about, we simply love our customers’ enthusiasm and passion for our products. ALDI always has our shoppers covered when it comes to stretching their dollar further, and our winner of one of our most coveted titles – the MVP (most valuable product) category this year is the $4.29 8pk of Urban Eats Roti Paratha – this freezer product has actually been a personal favourite of mine for years,” Kylie says.
With such a great value list of picks this year, all under $10 each, we know that price is what’s most important to our customers amid concerns around inflationary pressures. The ALDI Price Report confirms that a basket at ALDI is at least 15.6% cheaper than at other supermarkets, meaning an average Aussie family can save $1,555 a year by making the switch and that’s if they are already buying the cheapest products at a competitor store. This gap widens significantly to 24.7% when comparing ALDI prices to the equivalent branded products, saving the average family a massive $2,468 per year if they usually buy branded groceries.
