As summer winds down and fall inches closer, we are getting excited for bushels of new in-season produce at the farmers market, cozying up with hot apple cider in front of the fire and discovering all the new festive Aldi products coming to stores next month! From Oktoberfest bratwurst to seasonal coffee blends, we can't wait to add all 10 of these fun and healthy items to our autumn grocery lists.
1. Barissimo Ground Coffee
If you're an Aldi superfan, chances are there's a bag or two of Barissimo coffee in your pantry—and we think you need to make room for two more varieties. Caramel and Apple Crisp flavored ground coffees are coming to a store near you on September 18. Both varieties will only cost you $3.79 for a 12-ounce bag—a deal you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere else.
2. Deutsche Kuche Sunflower Seed Bread
Aldi's Deutsche Kuche Sunflower Seed Bread is made with healthy fats and hearty whole grains for a high-fiber, protein-packed source of good carbs. We can't wait to try it with goat cheese and lox once it comes back on September 18 for just $1.99.
3. Season's Choice Couscous Blend with Veggies
We rely heavily on our freezers to help us eat healthy in a hurry (and on a budget), and we can't wait to stock up on this grain-and-veg combo. This blend of couscous and farm-to-freezer veggies is pre-seasoned, making it a no-brainer for busy weeknight dinners. We're sure it would be delicious as a next-day work lunch as well. A two-pound bag will be available September 4 for just $2.89.
4. Barissimo Coffee Pods
We can't wait to stock up on these babies at the office, and with yummy fall flavors like Caramel Macchiato and Caramel Apple, we think you'll feel the same. These K-cup compatible coffee pods are just $5.89 for a box of 18, which will save you loads of money (and sugar) compared to your current Starbucks run. You'll be able to pick up a box on September 18.
5. Simply Nature Red Lentil Rotini
'Tis the season for fall-colored everything, even pasta! We're a big fan of Aldi's Simply Nature line, as it allows us to score organic products at amazing prices. Starting on September 11, you'll be able to buy this high-fiber, high-protein pasta alternative at just $3.69 for a 12-ounce box. How festive would this look in a fall pasta salad?
6. L'Oven Fresh Everything Bread
We are loving Aldi's ingenuity here—why add everything bagel seasoning to your avocado toast when your bread can come pre-seasoned? We're sure this will be a fan-favorite come September 25, and it's less expensive than many specialty breads out there at $3.99 a loaf.
7. Wicked Grove Cinnamon Hard Cider
Color us intrigued! We already can't wait to get our hands on this cinnamon-flavored hard cider once it debuts on September 25. This will be the perfect accent to fall bonfires, tailgates and even chilly nights at home by the fire. Plus, it's only $6.99 for a six-pack.
8. Oktoberfest Bratwurst with Herbs
Aldi has all kinds of Oktoberfest-themed products coming to stores this fall—after all, the grocer is based in Germany! Join in on the fun with these delicious-looking bratwursts made with traditional herbs and seasonings. While we won't be able to celebrate Oktoberfest in its birthplace, we're now inspired to throw our own party at home. This product will be available September 18 for $3.99 per pack of four sausages (perfect timing, since Oktoberfest officially kicks off on September 21).

9. Season's Choice Multigrain Blend with Veggies
While Season's Choice's other grain and veggie blend seems Mediterranean-inspired, this multigrain option is made with carrots, peas and corn for a cozy, warming dish. We think this would make a great base for an autumn soup or shortcut chicken pot pie. You'll be able to snag a bag for just $2.89 on September 4.
10. Simply Nature Black Bean Penne
We don't know about you, but we think this black bean penne would be the perfect ingredient for a Halloween party dish. This second new pasta alternative option touts 19g protein per serving and is high in fiber, too. We can't wait to start experimenting with this black bean pasta starting September 11—and it's only $3.69 per 12-ounce box!
