June's 2023 Aldi Finds Desserts Will Sweeten Summer

From pies and cakes bursting with fruity flavor to frozen creations like sorbet, ice cream, and decadent frosty drinks, there are plenty of sweet treats that are just perfect for summer. And while you can certainly try to whip up a few yourself, nothing beats the convenience of simply picking up a few intriguing treats from the store to try.

Grocery chain Aldi is releasing several new products in June, and that includes plenty of desserts. Whether you swear by citrus during the warmer months, want a colorful snack for children, or simply prefer an icy interpretation of your chocolate-y favorites, you'll likely find something from the store's new seasonal offerings that catches your eye — there are even some more sophisticated.

As an added bonus, the sweet new offerings won't break the bank. Budget-conscious grocery shoppers know that Aldi has a reputation for low prices, and these treats don't skew from that, with the vast majority coming in at under five dollars. Here's what to expect.

Sundae Shoppe Unicorn, Galactic, or Mermaid Cones

Perfect for kids (or adults with a whimsical spirit), Sundae Shoppe has a trio of offerings featuring ice cream in bold colors topped with all kinds of ornamental details, from pastel-hued crisped rice pieces to star-shaped sprinkles. Whether you want to take your tastebuds under the sea or up through the stars, you can snag these frozen treats starting June 7 for $3.99 a box.

Emporium Selection Baked Lemon Ricotta

Available on June 14 onwards for $3.99, this simple yet sophisticated baked ricotta cheese is a great staple to have on hand for your entertaining needs.

Sundae Shoppe Alex's Lemonade Stand Bars

Anyone who loves a chilled glass of lemonade on a hot summer day will likely be interested in these frozen lemonade bars, retailing for $2.99 a box from June 14.

For a signature summer flavor, the key lime is a can't miss, while the All American sampler includes traditional New York-style plain cheesecake as well as raspberry and blueberry-topped versions. Both are available for $12.99 starting June 14.

Moser Roth Lemon Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate and orange is a tried-and-true flavor combination, but don't overlook lemon — this other citrus fruit pairs well with the sweet flavor, too.

Fans of fruity wines may recognize the Pacific Fruit Vineyards brand, as Aldi has previously sold variations in Sweet Peach, Sweet Pineapple, and Sweet Watermelon flavors. Starting June 14, they've added another flavor to their roster: Sweet Lemon.

Available from June 21 onwards for $3.89 a bag, the Southern Grove product comes in both mild and spicy, so you can select whichever variation is most appealing to your palate.

Clancy's Cinnamon Apple Straws

If greasy potato chips sound a bit too heavy for a hot summer day but you still want something with that satisfying crunch, you might want to try this offering from Clancy's, available June 21 for $2.69 a bag. While cinnamon and apple might seem like more of a fall combination, these are packed with fruity flavor and pair well with all sorts of summer beverages.

When you want something frosty, light and refreshing, sherbet hits the spot. Fans of citrus flavors can try a rainbow variation with lemon, orange and lime, while creamsicle lovers might consider mixing the orange sherbet with their favorite vanilla ice cream for a fun take on the classic popsicle.
