The Frozen Aldi Seafood That's Baffling Reddit In All The Right Ways

If there's a grocery store that you can always depend on when it comes to gourmet items at a lower price, Aldi has your back. After sweeping the 2022 Product of the Year Awards in seven categories, Aldi has been deemed a high-profile grocery store, placing itself in close quarters with Trader Joe's and Whole Foods.

While some grocery store chains will stock shelves with popular name-brand food products, Aldi does the opposite, offering its customers a better selection of high-quality food with the lesser known — yet usually better — brands. Once Aldi's own Specially Selected private food brand hit shelves in the United States in 2013 (via Food Navigator), Aldi enjoyed even more customer satisfaction.

Today, the food label reigns supreme among a lot of other popular name brands, and Aldi customers have been impressed over the years with the number of products in just about every sector of food. Yes, that even includes several frozen foods, namely frozen meat and seafood.

The best tomato garlic mussels

When you think of Ohio, you probably don't think of the best seafood. That's where Aldi comes into play though, offering its customers Specially Selected food options that hit just the spot, no matter where you live.

That rings especially true with the grocery store's newly stocked whole shell Mussels in Tomato Garlic Sauce in the frozen section. Once Aldi customers got ahold of these, Reddit hasn't been able to stop talking about them. "This had no business being so tasty for a frozen seafood item in Ohio lol," said the original post.

"I love this w zucchini noodles & garden cherry tomatoes!" commented an Aldi Redditor. "I had this tonight for dinner. I make pasta, add cheese and some seasonings then mix it with the muscles. It's Delicious and takes no time," another Aldi fan said.

According to Instacart, the 16-ounce frozen bag is priced just over $4, making this an exceptional deal and easy-to-add seafood to just about any meal. Each of the five-ounce servings also only contain 100 calories and boast 15% of your recommended daily value in Vitamin A, although you may want to be careful with the sodium (via Nutritionix).
