Be sure to check out the refrigerated connamon rolls with orange icing...so good. I buy their hams too. At about $1.69 per pound their a good deal.

omg, they have cinnamon rolls with orange icing? I will have to try those sometime. I bought 8 of the spinach and goat cheese pizzas. Hubby and I love them and at $3.49 each, they can't be beat. I only wish they carried them all year.

Other recent purchases I've been pleased with: baked potatoes chips, peanut butter fiber bars, Greek yogurt, Light & Fit frozen breakfast sandwiches, and 3 lbs of the sweetest, juiciest tangerines. :eat2:

The circular says they'll have stuffed clams next week. I wonder if they might have them in early. Anyone know if next week means next week only? How rare ARE these things?

I feel like I should stock up and I've never even tried them!

I can't recall the last time my local Aldi has had stuffed clams in stock. It does mean next week only. If they have any beyond next week, it will be left over unsold stock and won't be around for long.

They had them before Christmas...so it's been almost 3 months. Here..they don't sell out that quickly..so maybe buy a batch to see if you like them and then go back for more if you do!

Made my second trip today. Hey - anyone ever just abandon the cart and the quarter? Ummm, it was crowded and I parked far.

My freezer is packed FULL.

I got:

  • 6 packages of stuffed clams!!
  • 1 package of snow crab legs
  • breaded chicken thigh fillets
  • General Tso's Chicken
  • some kind of battered fish
  • key lime pie
  • frozen meatballs
  • ground beef to make my own meatballs. Yeah, that was dumb. Maybe I'll make something else. lol
  • french toast sticks
  • breakfast sausage links
  • breaded butterflied shrimp
  • chicken salad
  • tuna salad
  • seafood salad
  • potato chips (since you all raved)
  • pork rinds

...And a few other things.

I think this trip was much more successful. I'm thinking of snow crabs for dinner. :)

P.S. ok, clam people - Do you use the oven directions or the microwave directions? I'm using the oven, but wondering what most people do.

Also, are they often frozen together? There are 3 frozen together and 2 sets of 2. Only 2 are loose. Looks like they got mushed together and then frozen. Can't separate them, altho I'll try again after they've been in the oven a few minutes.

Last comment - I find it amusing that they put stuffed clams into scallop shells :)

Yep...I just put them all on a sheet pan and throw them in the oven..they separate by the time they are done cooking. I only do the oven. At that temp, the top gets nice and crispy.

We went today and got 2 hams, 2 dozen eggs, some potato chips, pita chips and they had lemons for ten damn cents for a grand total of 40 bucks.

BUTTTTT..they were out of clams. GAH..So, it's off to another aldi we go. We still have about 4 packs in the freezer..but it will probably be June before they have them again.

I'm interested to know who you like the snow crab!

Don't get the fish sticks...Yuck-o.

Had half of the snow crabs tonight. Not very good. And at $12.99 for 1.5 lbs, not really a bargain even if they had been good. I can go to a local Chinese buffet and put away more than that for 10 bucks. Oh well!

And the clams were ok. I have an issue lately with garlic and they are very garlicky. I think part of my problem is I ate all 9. :p Maybe if I only do a few at a time it would be better for me. And yeah, the tops did get nice and crispy.

I'm wondering how they'd be if I made them more of a casino style, topping them with bacon and maybe some whole baby clams. I like more clam in mine.

I cook the clams a couple at a time in the microwave and dip them in a horseradish/grated parmesan mixture. :eat2:
