The People’s Picks returns!

ALDI Australia
By ALDI Australia

Calling all ALDI shoppers, the awards program unlike any other is back. You can vote to win prizes!

Not a day goes by without our fans taking to social media to share their favourite ALDI foods and finds with their friends and families. We love hearing about what our customers have discovered while shopping at ALDI and have even learnt a thing or two from our fans’ incredible product hacks! With so many recommendations and love for our products, we decided to create an official annual list of ALDI’s must-have, coveted products – as voted by Australians.

The People’s Picks lets us shine a spotlight on the products our customers simply can’t live without. Recognising the increasing meaning food brings to all of us right now, we revisited this year’s voting categories to introduce 10 new themes. The new categories are based on the different activities we all do at home (today, more so than ever!).

This year, food has meant more to us than ever before. The cooking renaissance has reminded us that food is more than a source of sustenance. Baking, platters, pasta making, and DIY café brunches have not only helped to keep boredom at bay but have also allowed us to find a sense comfort with our family and friends (albeit virtually).

We want to settle the debate and crown the best barbeque necessity, the real MVP (most valuable product) for those looking to snag a bargain, and the breakfast and brunch foods that have you jumping out of bed in the morning. The 10 categories are:

  1. The BBQ Boss
    • It’s your plus-one at BBQs. The crowd can’t get enough of this delightful favourite.
  2. The Daily Glow
    • Looking your best has never been easier, or affordable, with this beauty fave.
  3. Most Valuable Product
    • It helps stretch your dollars further so you can enjoy more, for less.
  4. The Early Bird
    • Everyone’s a morning person when this is dished up at breakfast.
  5. The Cleaning Whizz
    • Cleaning the house is a breeze with this mighty cleaner.
  6. The Time Lord
    • This nifty find helps you cook dinner faster, without compromising on quality.
  7. The Health Guru
    • Your body is a temple. And it just can’t get enough of this wholesome goodness.
  8. The Lunchbox Legends
    • Your little one never trades this lunchbox treat.
  9. The Life of the Party
    • Guests can’t get enough of this sensational platter addition.
  10. The Couch Companion
    • Your go-to binge watching snack. Stopping at one isn’t an option.

We have worked with some of our ALDI super fans to curate a shortlist of their most loved products. Now it’s time for all Aussies to have their say! Voting is open now and will close at 11:59pm Sunday 16 August. By submitting a pick, voters will automatically go into the draw to win $1,000 worth of ALDI gift cards (there will also be 10 x $100 ALDI gift cards up for grabs).

ALDI’s shopping expert, Nicole Higgins, said: “At ALDI we always say less is more. Our stores may be simple and our range might be smaller but we’re about quality over quantity. Our exclusive range of 1,800 products are of the highest quality, for a fraction of the price, so it’s no wonder we see customers sharing their favourite finds every day! The People’s Picks is a fantastic moment to capture all these recommendations and share the insider scoop on the products our shoppers ‘can’t live without’. We’re excited to see what comes out on top!”

Visit voting.aldi.com.au to submit a pick. All will be revealed on Tuesday 8 September, when we announce the winning products from each category and the 11 lucky winners of the ALDI vouchers.
