For an extra $4.99, customers can also get a bottle of Burlwood wine, Aldi said.
Beginning Nov. 23, Aldi said it will also begin offering a selection of appetizers for under $4, including Antoinette Brie or Camembert cheese, crab and shrimp or shrimp cakes, and wheat crackers. Appetizers and other special purchase items vary weekly, the chain said.
The Batavia, Ill.-based chain is also encouraging customers to visit the Special Purchase section online and subscribe to Aldi's e-newsletter to be alerted about upcoming specials for food and other merchandise.
It also offers a meal planner portal on its Web site -- http://www.aldi.us - which features holiday recipes to use with Aldi select brand items. The recipes include roast turkey with cranberry sausage stuffing, cranberry glazed ham, gravy, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and apple pie.
