Between the slew of delicious store-brand products and their unbeatable low prices, Aldi just might be the best grocery store for getting the biggest bang for your buck. The German-owned grocery chain has made it their mission to avoid brand names so they can offer customers a lower price point. 

We love shopping at Aldi for many things, but snacks have to be near the top of the list. The store always has an interesting selection of products and flavors, with more options arriving in stores all the time. While perusing Reddit recently, we ran across an Aldi snack combo that made us take notice. 

This intriguing snack duo— Clancy’s Original Pretzel Slims plus Park Street Deli Cranberry Almond Chicken Salad—comes to us courtesy of a dedicated subscriber to the Aldi subreddit and is the ultimate example of taking snaking seriously.

Clancy’s Pretzel Slims, which come in Original and Everything flavor, come in an 8-ounce bag and retail for only $1.99. The Park Deli Cranberry Almond Chicken Salad features premium white meat chicken, tangy dried cranberries and crunchy almonds and pairs perfectly with the Pretzel Slims. The 16-ounce container of chicken salad retails for $7.49.

“How many of us are majorly sustained by this combination,” asked the original poster to the Aldi subreddit, to which a very satisfied customer replied, “Girl Dinner!” With more than 200 upvotes, it seems that many Redditors are aligned with this snacking suggestion.

On the subject of the saltiness of the pretzel slims, one curious consumer asked, “How salty are the pretzel slims?” noting that “Sir Clancy spares no expense for the regular pretzel sticks, they are covered in salt, and extra delicious.” Another experienced buyer weighed in with their two cents saying, “Not overly [salty], just the right amount. I find them sweet actually.”
