Thousands of ALDI customers have voted (over 165,000 votes to be exact!) and revealed the favourite products for 2021. The products that were their go-to for epic home-cooked meals, regularly stocked in their pantries or simply gave them a little bit of joy this year – and the results are in!
“The People’s Picks awards shines a spotlight on products that go above and beyond our customers’ expectations. While ALDI guarantees the highest-quality products will always be available for a fraction of the price, our customers are valued experts when it comes to examining each product for creation of the perfect shopping list,’ ALDI shopping expert Kylie Warnke said.
“This year’s winning products are all excellent recommendations, and we’re pleased to see a number of past winners retain their status as favourites. We love our customer’s enthusiasm for our products, and the fact that they share and recommend them to friends and family whether it’s via a recipe, product hack, or just spreading the word on products that make their lives easier – all at a great price,” Kylie said.
