While Aldi (known for its “It’s not a sale” ads) is putting Thanksgiving items on sale this year, customers are still patiently waiting to learn what comes in the chain’s complete Thanksgiving meal that feeds eight people. While the Twitter ad Aldi posted last week features a turkey, stuffing, and several different side dishes, it’s difficult to know for sure what to expect.
This season, ALDI is the only place you can get an entire Thanksgiving feast for 8 people for $63. And no, that’s not a typo. 👀 pic.twitter.com/395BhC78fq

Examining how other retailers have designed their holiday meals, one can hope that all the Thanksgiving basics — turkey, stuffing, side dishes, and dessert — will be covered. Perhaps it will be similar to Walmart’s Convenient Holiday Meal, which includes enough for eight people and is priced about the same as Aldi’s feast at $63.48. This meal package includes 17 different items, ranging from turkey and ham to pecan pie and dinner rolls. Publix, another similar grocery retailer, is offering a deal that costs slightly more and includes only six items. The Publix package feeds seven to 10 people for $69.99 and comes with just the basics, minus a ham.
In 2020, Aldi released a Thanksgiving Dinner shopping list that amounted to just $30. Unfortunately, the grocery chain didn’t specify how many people that list of goods would feed. This year, Aldi is hinting that it might go one step further, but customers will have to wait and see.
