These Aldi September 2021 Finds Are Perfect For Busy Weeknights

Supermarket giant Aldi has heard the cries from those returning to work, school, and a semi-normal life this fall and is answering graciously. An impressive lineup of products will be hitting the shelves this September and to say we're excited is an understatement.

It should also be noted that Aldi has been killing it lately with themed product releases. The grocery chain released a ton of BBQ-centric items that were perfect for get-togethers of all kinds this summer. In addition, this September, Aldi is coming out with some amazing breakfast items that are perfect for on-the-go weekdays or sleepy Sunday mornings.

The chain will also be stocking its shelves with foods better-suited for the later part of your day. Besides being delicious and easy to find, these products are offering busy folks an extra edge: each meal and/or product is designed with hectic weeknights in mind, hopefully easing the stress and hassle of making dinner. Between sports practices, rehearsals, late nights at the office, book club, and all the other evening activities that start up again in September, this new line of offerings from Aldi should help you out in a big way.

Mama Cozzi's Pizza Kitchen Buffalo Chicken or Cheeseburger Pizza

Starting September 1, these tasty-sounding meals will be available for $4.19 and may have you thinking pizza night doesn't have to wait until Friday.

Season's Choice Eggplant Cutlets or Fries

Season's Choice Pumpkin or Butternut Squash Risotto

Fall is the season for pumpkin and butternut squash and cozying up to warm meals. Aldi gets that.

Its Season's Choice Risotto (either pumpkin- or butternut squash-flavored) comes frozen and ready to heat and serve for a deliciously seasonal and savory weeknight dinner. Enjoy the flavors of carrots, onions, rosemary, and a blend of spices to really elevate weekly meals, all for the price of $3.49. Available in stores on September 8.

Well, we can only assume it's true for Aldi's September 15 release of Buffalo Chicken or Bacon Mac & Cheese Bites! With 12 bites per bag, you can feed the whole fam or portion off as sides on busy weeknights that require fast-cooking.

For just $3.99, you can have a quick-baked savory pastry appetizer (or, let's face it, dinner) at your fingertips.
