  • I recently discovered some great snack options at my local Aldi, including granola bars and an unusual popcorn.
  • While I'm excited to sample these products, I know I also can't get too attached to them, because Aldi rotates products frequently.

Are these on your list, too?

One of my goals this year is to add more money to my savings account. To that end, I've made some changes to the way I shop for groceries. And one of them is shopping at Aldi.

I discovered Aldi earlier this year and have already made a couple of trips over in conjunction with a Costco run. And on each occasion, I can say with confidence that my credit card tab was lower than what it would've been had I stuck to my regular grocery store.

On my last Aldi run, I loaded up on produce -- even though that's something I usually buy at Costco. But I also scooped up these three products I'm super eager to try.

1. Fit & Active Snack Packs

My days and evenings tend to be pretty busy between working and shuttling my kids all over town to their various after-school activities. As such, I need something easy I can grab on the go. These snack packs seem to fit the bill, so I picked up the chocolate chip wafer variety. I figure they're something easy to stick in my purse in a pinch, and they can double as snacks for my kids when they need something to bring to school.

2. Millville crunchy peanut butter granola bars

In my house, we eat a lot of granola bars. They're an easy breakfast (albeit not the most filling or healthy one), and they're yet another easy thing to throw into my car or purse in a hurry. Now, I've never heard of Millville despite having been around the granola bar circuit plenty in my day. But these seem like a good addition to my rotation while I can get them -- more on that in a bit.

3. Clancy's dill pickle–flavored popcorn

Popcorn is one of those snacks that works in a pinch because it's light and easy to digest. And I was drawn to this dill pickle popcorn because, well, it's something different, to say the least. I can admit that this buy was a bit of a risk, because I'm not sure how strong the pickle flavor will be and whether my son, who's a pickle fan like me, will like it or not. But since my local Aldi had this item for just $2.29, I figured it wasn't such a huge gamble.

These products may be good, but I won't get attached to them

I'm pretty excited about my recent Aldi snack haul. But one thing I'm not going to do is plan on purchasing and consuming these items regularly.

The reason? Aldi is known for rotating its product line constantly. So the items you see at the store one week may not be available the following week. Heck, in some cases, they may not even be available the following day.

That's the risk you take when you shop at Aldi. The upside, though, is that Aldi makes it possible to load up on groceries for less money than your traditional grocery store.

I probably won't start making special trips out to Aldi because it can be so hit or miss. But since I happen to have an Aldi right near my local Costco, and I visit the latter every week, it's easy to pop into Aldi first and see what deals I can find.

If I end up liking these items as much as I expect to, I'll certainly put them on my list for my next Aldi visit. But I also won't be shocked to find them gone from the store completely.
