    23 Of The Best Australian Aldi Products That Prove It's King Of The Supermarkets

    Heaven is a place on earth — at Aldi.

    If you've been to Aldi, you understand: There is no hunger, no thirst, no curiosity that cannot be satisfied while wandering these hallowed aisles.

    Here are 23 of the best buys available to Aussies.

    1. Small Talk Shiraz

    It's soft, it's fruity and it goes down very smoothly — I honestly can't say enough good things about this delectable drop of shiraz. Plus, at $5.99 for a LITRE it is ridiculously economical.

    2. Spreadable Goat's Cheese

    Delectable and ever-so-smooth — try it with avocado toast, veggie dippers, grilled meats, salad dressings.

    3. Kenny's Salted Caramel Ice Cream

    Halo Top addicts will says it's a cheap knockoff, but at half the price and the same low-calorie allure, Kenny's ice creams are always a winner for me. Salted caramel is king, naturally.

    4. Baker's Life Wraps

    Use 'em as a wrap, as a pizza base, for a breakfast burrito — these light and versatile little wonders are delicious for every meal.

    5. Greyson's Seville Orange Gin

    The Greyson’s Seville Orange & Persian Lime Gin took out the Master’s awards for the best flavoured gin at this year's International Gin Masters competition. So, I feel like that's all the reason you need to give it a whirl? Oh also, it retails for less than $40.

    6. Organic Kombucha

    Even if you hate 'buch, you've got to love that Aldi has a range of cheap, flavoursome bottles that are organic and good for the gut. The ginger and lemon variety always takes the win for me.

    7. KB's Whole Cooked Mussels

    Quick and easy seafood, with none of the concerns of "do you think it's finished cooking?"

    8. Porcini Mushroom & Truffle Triangoli

    Julia Willing / BuzzFeed

    You may not get to Italy anytime soon, but you can fly your tastebuds there with this fancy lil' feast of mushroom-stuffed pasta. Finish with an extra drizzle of truffle oil, honey and a generous grating of parmesan.

    9. A. C. Byrne & Co. Cabernet Merlot

    Julia Willing / BuzzFeed

    She may not be a vintage, but this delectable bottle of Margaret River cab merlot will be a regular fixture for your Friday night dinners. Like all Aldi wines, this one comes in at a stellar price — just $9.99.

    10. Choceur Dark Chocolate

    Look, I understand that this chocolate brand is not specific to Australian Aldi, but my GOD it is incredible. Just taste it, please. Even if you don't think you like dark chocolate, you will like this. It is, hands down, the best chocolate I have ever tasted in my life.

    11. Brown Rice Crackers

    Julia Willing / BuzzFeed

    I have tried all the brown rice crackers you can get your hands on — Coles, Woolies, Harris Farm, the lot of 'em. But none have impressed me like these Aldi ones — great for creamy dips, cheeses, guac, you name it.

    12. Casa Barelli Fig Glaze

    The Perth Vegan / Via instagram.com

    Thiccc, tangy and vegan-friendly — a must for salads, marinades and fried veggies.

    13. Black Summer Truffle Infused Olive Oil

    Julia Willing / BuzzFeed

    The KING of special buys — this bad boy only comes around twice a year, but you had better keep an eye out, because it's the best damn truffle oil and it's dirt cheap (of course).

    14. Corte Carista Chianti Superiore

    Julia Willing / BuzzFeed

    Again, not strictly speaking Australian, but a really good import and only $10.99. Unlike many other European wines, this one comes with a twist top, so you don't have to faff around with a corkscrew.

    15. Just Organic Brie

    Julia Willing / BuzzFeed

    If you've made it this far in the article, I doubt you need convincing about the quality of Aldi's cheeses, but this organic brie is beautiful, only $3 and perfect for your upcoming springtime picnics.

    16. Emporium Selection Maasdam Cheese

    Julia Willing / BuzzFeed

    Good for melting, grating atop a salad, or just eating a slab with a glass of red.

    17. Kapiti White Choc & Raspberry Ice Cream

    Julia Willing / BuzzFeed

    From our brothers across the Tasman — this ice cream is creamy and rich, without ever being sickly or overly indulgent. Try this variety and the Manuka honey & fig flavour!

    18. Oh So Natural Crunchy Peanut Butter

    Julia Willing / BuzzFeed

    Simple, delicious and so much cheaper than health food store alternatives. Ideal for satay sauces, baking, vegan treats and just eating it straight off the spoon.

    19. Deli Originals Traditional Taramosalata

    Julia Willing / BuzzFeed

    This bad boy only sprung up a few months ago, after a few other specialty brands came out with their recipes for taramosalata. As a big Greek food fan, I can confirm this is just as good (if not better) than some of the more expensive versions available in Harris Farm.

    20. Deli Originals Persian Style Feta Dip

    Jo's Kitchen / Via instagram.com

    It's feta, but in dip form. Need I say anything further?

    21. Inner Goddess Unsweetened Almond Milk

    Abby Molloy / BuzzFeed

    This almond milk is the best damn dairy-free milk you can get your hands on. Barely any sugar, tastes wonderful and gets frothy too! At less than $1.50, it's far cheaper than any of the other Aussie brands.

    22. Emporium Selection Marinated Feta

    Julia Willing / BuzzFeed

    For those of you who like the fancy, marinated stuff from the deli, get your fork into this Danish-style feta. It's zingy and smooth and infused with a hint of herbs.

    23. And finally, Tudor Yarra Valley Pinot Noir

    Julia Willing / BuzzFeed

    It's hard to get a good pinot for under $20, but I can personally vouch for this Yarra Valley drop — it's bloody good stuff. And at a humble $12.99 price point, you really can't complain.
