Many of Aldi’s German Week products have been known to sell out fast, so fans try to gather as much of their old picks and potential new favorites as they can. “Looking forward to having the frangipane tart again — all flavors of that are so delicious,” commented one fan on an Aldi subreddit. “I am hoping to stock up!” replied a frangipane enthusiast. “The herring fillets are the only reason I keep track of Aldi’s German week,” another Redditor wrote.
Jaffa cakes, a product that many Aldi customers adore, may be harder to find. The chocolate-covered spongy cookies with a layer of jelly filling are irresistible to many shoppers, but the German Week favorite seems to be absent from 2023’s lineup. Luckily, one Redditor spotted some in their local store, giving hope to Jaffa cake fans everywhere.
Even better news for thrifty fans of the German-based grocer is the fact that some of the items are currently listed as Aldi Savers. German-style sauerkraut is marked down from $1.65 to $1.39, and Bavarian or beer bratwurst, normally $5.69, is currently $4.49. And, of course, if you’re going to buy bratwurst and sauerkraut, it makes sense to head over to Aldi’s liquor store and pick up some Wernesgrüner Pilsner to wash it all down. Not only is it a German beer, but it’s also one of the best Aldi beers you can buy.
