Are You Paying More For Groceries at Aldi in 2021?

TJ

Well reports in the media have certainly painted a bleak picture of soaring price, siting data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In May 2021, the cost of beef was up 2.3%. While there are quite a few prices going up, I've managed to find some that have gone down.  When I started the Aldi Price List in 2018, I just changed the prices as I went. With the list growing to over 3100 items, not including the non food Aldi Finds, and the attention to the rising prices, I decided to track the changes. Keep in mind that not all prices are updated weekly. To find out the date an item on the Aldi Price List was updated, click the name to view the product's details.

Errors on the List
There were a few items on the list that were not labeled properly. Here are some of the fixes:

  1. South Carolina Peaches: the correct weight and price have been updated.
  2. Fruit Squeezies: the 3.2 oz. poach was labeled as 4 ct. for $1.49. That has been corrected. The count is 1 each.   There is a 4 pack available and that has also been updated.
