ALDI's top 10 products revealed, but the results might surprise you!

ALDI’s top products of 2020 have been announced!

ALDI shoppers have picked the top 10 products you’ll find in store after 300,000 shoppers were asked to nominate their best buys.

The retailer’s 2020 People’s Picks Awards saw shoppers vote over several  weeks across a variety of categories including snacks, fridge and pantry.

This year the categories also included ideal BBQ addition, favroutie sweet treat and must-have platter inclusion.

And while customers were able to vote on their favourite products, the German retail giant also opened the voting up to ALDI employees - giving the public an idea of what ALDI insiders suggest are the top products.

Although there was a winner for every category, one product came out on top – receiving the most overall votes from shoppers and ALDI insiders.

Surprisingly, ALDI’s Essential Health Paw Paw Ointment which retails for $2.79 took out the best overall product receiving the most votes.

It beat out ALDI’s sell-out cleaning product Di San Oxy Action PreWash Stain Remover that retails for $1.29 and is a favourite amoung shoppers.

Their Emporium selection of Brie and Camembert cheese for $4.49, another ALDI fan favourite, also missed out of the overall combined top spot.

The cheese selection range has received rave reviews for years with customers saying it’s better than more expensive varieties.

And while the shoppers and employees agreed on the top product, the rest of the categories were a little different.

Shoppers’ top picks included the Fishmonger Fresh Salmon Fillet 4pk, Bakers Life Croissants and ALDI’s popular Di San Oxy Action Prewash Stain Remover.

Here are the peoples’ top Aldi product choices in each category:

  • BBQ: The Fishmonger Fresh Salmon Fillet 4pk

Apart from selecting the top products on ALDI shelves, the People’s Picks awards also highlight the retailers commitment to sourcing locally made products with eight of the 10 winning selections Australian made.

“We work closely with local growers, producers and partners every day to create and supply products that deliver on taste, quality and value,” Aldi's shopping expert Nicole Higgins said.  

“Once a product is on the shelf, we are certain that it is of the highest quality, for a fraction of the price. The People's Picks is our way of saying "you don’t have to take our word for it!"

“This year's picks are excellent recommendations and certainly items that should be on everyone's shopping list."
