Aldi is doubling down on its commitment to offer low prices on the food and household items that shoppers want for their summer get-togethers.
This summer, Aldi is reducing prices on seasonal favorites including fruits like grapes and cherries; meats for the grill including brats and boneless skinless chicken breasts; and other cookout favorites like guacamole and frozen treats.
The American Farm Bureau Federation conducts an annual survey to determine the average price of a Fourth of July cookout. Its most recent survey (2019) found the cost for a 10-person barbecue was $52.80. Aldi will offer the same barbecue essentials for an average of $36.61, roughly $16 and 30 percent less than the 2019 national average.
That kind of savings from Aldi frees up cash for shoppers to keep in their pockets or spend on additional items like appetizers, snacks and entertaining décor.
“People are excited to get back together with family and friends, and we don’t want rising food costs to get in the way of summer barbecues. We’re already known for low prices throughout our stores, and we’re taking that a step further by lowering prices on dozens of summer favorites,” said Dave Rinaldo, co-president at Aldi U.S.
Below is the list of summer cookout ingredients included in the AFBF cost comparison.
- Eight hot dogs and buns;
- 8 ¼-pound hamburgers (2 lbs. pre-cooked weight) and buns with cheese slices;
