This is America's #1 Favorite Coffee at Aldi

It won the award, but it's not technically coffee...

The 2021 Product of the Year Award winners were just recently announced, and Alid took home the top prize in seven out of 41 categories. You'll find the best breakfast item on shelves at the discount grocery store, but you'll also find the best coffee — but there's a twist.

Around 40,000 shoppers voted in the survey, and Aldi's Friendly Farms Almondmilk Coffee Creamer won the Coffee category. Yes, it isn't actually coffee, but this must mean it's just that good! The 16-ounce bottle comes in Vanilla and Caramel and is 100% vegan. It has 35 calories per 1 tbs. (Related: Grocery Shortages To Expect in 2021, According to Experts.)

The Product of the Year Awards "provides a trusted resource to easily guide consumers to the best new products on the market." And while the Almondmilk Coffee Creamer is a relatively new product at Aldi, its description on the grocery store's website says it already has multiple accolades.

"For all the obvious reasons, shoppers are spending less time in the supermarket than ever, but still crave new and innovative products to light up these difficult times," Mike Nolan, the Global CEO of Product of the Year Management. With a growing assortment of milk and milk substitutes, this Aldi product fits the bill.

Coffee creamer is one of those additions that can get out of hand quickly, though, no matter how few calories it has. One registered dietitian's tip? Measure the creamer before pouring your coffee! For more on this, here are 8 Healthiest Ways to Drink Your Coffee, According to Dietitians.
