Grocery stores and food chains are working hard to find you cheap food all summer long. Walmart promises summer groceries cheaper than last year until July 15, Taco Bell is giving free breakfast tacos every Tuesday in June, and now Aldi has announced that they’re dropping prices on more than 250 items this summer, helping to save Americans over $60 million on groceries.
Broken down by summer categories, “for an outdoor adventure”, “for a picnic basket,” “for the morning fuel up” and “for a quick weeknight meal,” here’s the food items that will be cheaper at Aldi this summer versus last summer’s prices.

Aldi is lowering prices on 250 items this summer, starting now.
“We don’t want high grocery prices to get in the way of Americans doing what they love this summer, so we’re taking charge to champion value in a way that only Aldi can. We’re reducing our already low prices on some of the season’s most popular items to make sure summer plans aren’t disrupted,” Dave Rinaldo, Co-President at Aldi U.S., said in a statement. “Whether our shoppers are traveling, heading to a game or enjoying time by the pool, we are committed to offering quality food and essentials at the lowest prices possible so they can enjoy life outside the grocery aisle.”
