Easter candy and Hawaiian bagels: ALDI Finds week of 3/15/23
ALDI Finds for the week of 3/15/23 include tons of Easter candy, Hawaiian bagels, spring gnomes, and chicken schnitzel. Check out this week’s picks below, and let me know what you want to Find.
What’s at ALDI this week? Well, Easter is 26 days away as I type, so of course: It’s now Easter candy season. My store had a full endcap plus another half of an aisle going already, so take a look now for the best selection.
Beyond name brand Easter chocolate and sweets, ALDI’s own brands are often cheaper — and, sometimes better quality. (Some are also quite adorable, as in these Choceur creme chocolate eggs with spoons!)
Look also for more “grown-up” Easter treats, such as these pretty chocolate truffle eggs.
But really: You can find pretty much all the candy you need for a fulfilling Easter basket this week. For reference, here are some advertised prices:

Fifteen new ALDI food Finds
So, yeah. This latest ad is mostly candy and home goods, but we do have a few actual food Finds this week. Here’s what to look for:
- Rana shrimp scampi fettuccine 16 oz, $7.99
- Specially Selected imported Italian dessert, tiramisu or raspberry mousse, $2.59
- Black Angus premium beef meatballs 3 lbs, original or Italian, $13.99
- Deutsche Küche chicken schnitzel, $9.99
- Fremont Fish Market fish cakes, $2.49

- Fusia chicken or beef mandu, $6.89
- Journey to India chicken tikka or vegetable samosas, $4.49
- Mama Cozzi’s stone baked pizza, four cheese or veggie, $4.49
- McCain quick cook waffle fries, $4.69
- Priano shrimp scampi or chicken Florentine 24 oz, $5.99

- Specially Selected fresh Waygu ground beef, $5.99/lb
- Thomas Farms fresh lamb shoulder chops, $6.99/lb
- L’Oven Fresh Hawaiian bagels, $2.49
That’s about it!
The samosas are expensive, but the chicken tikka ones are darn tasty.
I still haven’t tried the Mandu dumplings, but they seem to get good reviews.
And you can do all sorts of stuff with the hot pork sausage rolls. Just for instance:
- Sausage, egg, & spinach hand pies
- Low carb breakfast sausage egg muffins
- Beef & sausage salsa verde chili
- Easy breakfast sausage quiche
These rolls keep getting more expensive over time, but are still a decently affordable protein source.
Speaking of cheap protein, the swai works out to $4.50 a pound. Try using yours in this BBQ potato chip baked swai recipe, or anywhere you’d cook up a firm mild white fish.
But if you’re looking for an easy pre-made Lenten dinner instead, check out these bags of shrimp scampi linguine over in the frozen section.

The gnomes are always fun & cute, so if you need one for the new season, here’s your chance!
Above, last year’s spring mini gnomes so you can get an idea of what they look like — this year, you’ll see some slightly different designs and colors, but they’re very similar.
This is also one of last year’s porch signs — they do have the “Go Away” sign again this week, but the top decoration is slightly different.
