I live a short walk away from Aldi, and once I heard about the store's new Thanksgiving items, I knew I had to give them a try.
What's new: Mama Cozzi's green bean casserole pizza and cranberry white cheddar cheese.
- Full disclosure: My expectations weren't high for either of these.
The verdict: The cranberry white cheddar cheese was pretty great. While it sounds like a natural pairing, having cranberries already infused in cheese seemed a bit odd to me.
- But I was pleasantly surprised. The cranberry isn't overpowering, but rather adds a delightful sweetness.
Yes, but: The green bean casserole pizza was just... decent.
- Toasted onions, melty cheese and green beans go pretty well together. But I think it could've been a little lighter on the creamy sauce.
Heads up: If you want to try these for yourself, visit your local Aldi soon.
- The grocery chain is clearing out its Thanksgiving specials to prepare for the winter holiday season.
