Reindeer antlers are on. Holiday cookies are out. Tree lights are up. And Mariah Carey is baaaaack. All this to say: The post-Thanksgiving holiday season has arrived and, along with it, there’s a fresh batch of Aldi Finds. Earlier this week our sources at Aldi gave us a sneak peek at what’s to come this December and the list is packed with cart toppers. 

There are lots of holiday-themed items (Christmas gnocchi, anyone?), plus luxe desserts, frozen breakfast pastries and apps, festive snacks, and more. It was tough, but we narrowed it down to the ones we’re most excited about. Here are our top 10 finds.

1. Specially Selected Chocolate Hazelnut Croissant, $4.99
