Twinkly lights and stars, snowy scapes, scarf-clad reindeer, and santa-red bags are sure signs as any that the festivities are a comin’ — and fast. (Is it just us, or did October fly by … on a witch’s broom?!) Of course, a new month also means a fresh batch of Aldi Finds. 

Our friends at Aldi gave us a sneak peek at the dozens of items hitting stores ahead of the holidays. Beyond the beloved advent calendars, which are available on November 1 (!), these finds are packed with all kinds of sweets — for snacking, gifting, decorating, and even displaying. There were so many to choose between, it was nearly impossible to even narrow it down to 10. 

That’s why we’re dedicating the entire list to all things sweet, almost all of which are available on November 2. Back-to-back trips to Aldi, anyone? Happy shopping.

1. Moser Roth Grand Chocolades, $3.49

No, that’s not a typo — these beautifully wrapped chocolates are, in fact, grand chocolades. Available November 2, they come in three varieties: Chocolate Crème (milk chocolate with a crème filling), Crispy Hazelnut (milk chocolate with a crispy wafer and hazelnut crème filling), and Premium Collection (chocolate crème with a crispy hazelnut and hazelnut crème filling). Any one of the chocolades would look elegant displayed in your favorite candy dish.

2. Winternacht Cherry Stollen, $6.75

We like to refer to this bread-like cake with German roots as powdered sugar-coated heaven. While there are many variations circulating the globe, Aldi is keeping things simple and classic this year with just two: Cherry or Marzipan. Why not try both? They’re available on November 2.

6. Clancy’s Peppermint Flavored Kettle Corn, $2.29

Elf is one of our favorite holiday movies, and just looking at this pepperminty popcorn brings visions of a tights-clad Will Ferrell dodging snowballs to our heads. The sweet and salty holiday treat is available November 2 — perfectly timed for a Friday movie night.

7. Choceur Hot Cocoa Bombs, $5.99

Sometimes we get a sneak taste of new launches, and after one sip of this melted hot cocoa bomb, we dubbed this newcomer “the one thing you should buy” at Aldi this holiday season. Tip: In lieu of hot milk or water, pour ready-made hot cocoa in your mug. Find them in stores on November 2.
