Aldi Shoppers Are Divided On These Sous Vide Egg Bites

Most food enthusiasts are familiar with the sous vide cooking method. It's the drool-worthy kitchen luxury that's also perfect for beginners because it's almost impossible to mess up. By sealing food in an airtight bag and submerging it in water that is temperature-controlled by the sous vide, the food is never able to overcook (via Bon Appetit). You can sous vide practically everything, from steak and salmon to vegetables and, yes, even eggs (via Serious Eats).

Of course, for those of us who don't have the kitchen space, let alone the spare $80 to $200 to spend on such a gadget, there's always pre-made sous vide dishes (via Good Housekeeping). For instance, Instagrammer @theamazingaldi posted a photo of prepackaged sous vide egg bites at Aldi with the caption: "Have you spotted the egg bites @aldiusa? They come in spinach feta and bacon swiss. Yum!" Of course, their fellow Aldi enthusiasts had, indeed, spotted the egg bites, and had plenty of opinions to share about them.

What people have to say about Aldi's sous vide egg bites

Plenty of people were quick to recommend these egg bites in the comments, with one fan writing: "THESE ARE SO GOOD!!!" and another: "I had [them], they were great." Meanwhile, others compared them to the similar fan-favorite product sold at Starbucks. But, of course, it wouldn't be the internet without a negative opinion or two. Specifically, one person called out what they described as the "awful texture" while another had trouble removing plastic from the actual egg bites themselves. A third person simply wrote with an air of mystery: "I'll pass. They were awful."

If you're still on the fence about trying these bites based on the mixed Instagram response, you might be interested to know that, while they don't come in as many flavors, the Aldi egg bites are just about half the price of the Starbucks version, and are being sold for $2.79 for a pack of two (via Delish). So, if you're missing the coffee shop atmosphere, or are trying to cut back on the mobile orders and drive-thru runs, these convenient bites that are easy to pop in the microwave or air fryer might be just what you're looking for (via Kitchn).
