TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — If you are a fan of Aldi, you might have some of its “most popular” products in your fridge or pantry.
The Germany-based grocery store released its annual “fan favorites” survey Tuesday, which revealed 13 of its top products.
Aldi said two of its top products, Friendly Farms Cottage Cheese and Low Sugar Greek yogurt, were part of viral Tiktok trends that swept #FoodTok. During the “protein powerhouse’s” viral run, Aldi said its cottage cheese sales spiked more than 14%.
“Our loyal shoppers are always vocal about their love for ALDI products and over 70,000 of them sang praises in this year’s Fan Favorites survey,” said Scott Patton, Vice President of National B Buying. “Their feedback is invaluable, which is why we were excited to introduce new survey categories inspired by our fans’ interests, including ‘TikTok Made Me Buy It’ among others.”
