ALDI Says These 10 Items Are Facing Delays

Shipping issues are impacting this low-cost grocery chain, too.

Grocery stores around the country are being impacted by shipping delays and shortages of beloved products. To address these problems, Costco recently revealed that it rented three cargo vessels to transport containers between Asia and the U.S. and Canada. Though ALDI hasn't revealed if it has similar plans, it's letting customers know that some products might not be in stores on their advertised on-sale date.

"We are experiencing shipping delays and are working around the clock to fix it. We know it is frustrating and we are sorry for any and all inconveniences," ALDI wrote on its website. "We are trying our best to limit these delays and we will make products available in store as soon as possible . . . We appreciate your loyalty and ask for your understanding and apologize in advance for any disappointment this might cause."

The low-cost grocery store chain posts its "ALDI Finds" every week online. Right now, there are several items on its Sept. 29 and Oct. 6 lists that could be difficult to find. Without further ado, here's a handy list of those products.

One of the items on ALDI's "product delays" list is this spooky cheese. Could it have anything to do with the fact that it was "aged in a spine-shilling Romanian salt cave?" The $3.99 blocks also come in a red wine-soaked version (which doesn't appear to be impacted by delays).

It's finally fall—and that means a lot of pumpkin foods are popping up on store shelves! This ALDI Find is unfortunately impacted by shipping delays, so it may not be available on your next run to the store.

Sadly, the Rice Krispies Halloween Kits and the Skulls & Eyeball Cookie Mix might not be available at all ALDI locations starting Oct. 6. That means you might have to make do with regular Rice Krispies and homemade skulls and eyeballs.

Various Homegoods

ALDI has a wide selection of food and beverages, including alcohol. It's also a great place to shop for home goods! However, several of these items are also on the "product delays" list:

  • Egg Poacher
  • DB Rectangular Storage Ottoman
  • Portion Perfect Collapsible Meal Kit
  • Easy Home 19 Stitch Sewing Machine
  • Huntington Home Ceramic Pumpkins
  • Huntington Home Bagless Upright Vacuum

Remember, all locations might not be impacted by delays in the same way. So you could be in luck if you only need one or more of these items.
