We know we wax lyrical about Aldi once every few weeks — we’ve told you about its award-winning $4.99 sparkling wine, its hot cross bun-flavoured gin and its Bertie Beetle ice cream — but really, with its products such high quality and prices that are so affordable, there’s good reason for it.
This latest update, however, is one to really take note of: the German supermarket has released its People’s Picks for 2021.
Every year, Aldi asks thousands of its customers to share what their favourite products are and then tallies those votes into a People’s Picks winner’s list with its top buys across 10 categories. This year’s awards saw over 165,000 votes cast and winners including a $2.19 sunscreen, three vegan-friendly products and a $2.99 chocolate block.
“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,” says Aldi shopping expert Kylie Warnke.
“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.”
