The Best December 2021 Aldi Finds For Your Holiday Brunch

If you're looking for variety, unique foods, and lots of savings, Aldi is a great place to shop year-round. However, it's especially worth a trip during the holiday season. The national grocery store retailer is famous for its seasonal products, from food to toys to pet treats. There are the coveted advent calendars, filled with everything from chocolate truffles to Irish cream to bath bombs. There's the holiday goat cheeses and Christmas tree-shaped pizzas that are perfect for hosting parties. And there's even the oversized wintry doormats and cozy flannel sheets for around the home (as seen on Instagram).

And, good news for anyone hosting a Christmas brunch this upcoming season, or who just loves a festive morning meal: The 2021 holiday lineup at Aldi also includes plenty of foodie-approved finds that'll help you prepare the perfect noshing session. From brioche filled with sweet cream to holiday-flavored coffee to the tastiest finger foods, here are some of the best new brunch-worthy products coming to Aldi shelves in December.

liveGfree Assorted Varieties Donuts

Just because you're gluten-free doesn't mean you can't indulge in donuts this holiday season. These gluten-free treats from liveGfree come in three seasonal flavors: gingerbread, cranberry, and pumpkin. Available on December 1, they cost $4.49 for a box of six full-sized donuts that you just need to heat up in the microwave.

Specially Selected Brioche Star

Light, fluffy, and sweet, brioche bread is a classic brunch treat. You could stick with a regular loaf, sure, but this holiday season why not go with this doughy star instead? It costs $5.99 and will be available on December 1. With a side of whipped butter and jam (or better yet, Nutella), it's sure to be the star of the show, pun intended.

Specially Selected Christmas Tree Brioche (Chocolate Chip or Vanilla Cream)

Similar to the pick above, this brioche Christmas tree is as festive as it is delicious. It costs $5.99 as well and will also be available on December 1. What makes this bread different than its star-shaped counterpart is that it comes in two sweet varieties — either dotted with chocolate chips or filled with vanilla cream, so consider it more of a brunch dessert.

Grandi Mori Prosecco

What's brunch without a little bubbly? Get the party started with this 1.5-liter bottle of Grandi Mori Prosecco, which costs $15.99 and comes out on December 1. You can sip the sparkling wine straight up from a dainty flute or pair it with orange juice or grapefruit juice to mix up a mean mimosa for your guests. Bottomless drinks have never tasted so good!

Berryhill Lemon Curd

This lemon curd is like a fancier alternative to jam that every foodie should consider. It has so many uses: You can slather it on toast, use it as a filling for pastries or tarts, or add a dollop on top of pancakes or waffles. Available starting December 1, it costs $2.79 per jar. Tip: Just slap on a bow, and it could also make for a great take-home favor for your brunch guests.

La Terra Fina Cheddar Broccoli or Lorraine Quiche

If you're in search of a main dish for brunch that will keep guests full and satisfied for hours, choose one of these savory quiches from La Terra Fina. Whether you prefer broccoli cheddar or classic Lorraine (which includes bacon and Swiss cheese), each serving contains a hefty 14 grams of protein and is made with cage-free egg whites. You can get them for $7.99 each starting on December 8.

Connellys Variety Pack

Regular coffee creamer is great, but boozy coffee creamer is even better when you're hosting a celebratory holiday brunch. Kick up your cuppa a notch with the addition of one of these festive Connellys creamers, which come in original, mint chocolate, and creme brulee flavors. You can get the variety pack for $14.99 at Aldi starting on December 8.

Barissimo Salted Caramel or Toasted Coconut Ground Coffee

Sometimes, after a night of holiday festivities, the first thing you need when you get to brunch is a hot cup of coffee. On December 15, you can pick up these seasonal javas from Aldi for $3.79 a piece. They come in salted caramel or toasted coconut flavors, and the delicious aromas alone wafting through the house are enough to wake up any tired (or potentially hungover) guests.

Appetitos Blossoms (Spinach & Cheese or Chicken & Pesto)

You don't have to spend hours in the kitchen prepping appetizers from scratch. Instead, opt for these pre-made "blossoms," which are bite-sized hunks of phyllo dough stuffed with either spinach and cheese or chicken and pesto. They come frozen so all you have to do is pop them in the oven or microwave. They'll hit Aldi shelves on December 15 and cost $3.69 for a pack of 12 pieces.

Specially Selected Charcuterie Board Kit

Fact: It is never too early for a charcuterie board. This kit from Aldi is perfectly appropriate for brunch and includes everything you need to build a drool-worthy spread (sans prosciutto and cheese). For just $9.99, you'll get almonds — including dark chocolate-covered ones — dried apricots, dates, and apple slices. It comes out on December 15.
