Discount retailer Aldi has unveiled its annual Fan Favorites list for 2022. More than 100,000 Aldi shoppers made their voices heard by choosing their favorite own brand items found at the retailer.

“With 100 Aldi-exclusive products to choose from across this year’s Fan Favorites survey, we have first-time winners in 11 of the 13 categories,” said Scott Patton, VP of National Buying at Aldi. “Aldi shoppers really appreciate our selection and know that we’ve put in time and effort to offer them a wide variety of products to love. The fact that they also took the time to fill out our survey just shows that #ALDILove runs deep.”

This year’s Fan Favorites winners by category are:

  • Hall of Fame: Mama Cozzi’s Pizza Kitchen Take and Bake Deli Pizza*
  • Get Up & Go: Specially Selected Indulgent Greek Yogurt
  • What’s for Dinner?: Specially Selected Ravioli

The 2022 list featured both new products and returning items. In the “What’s for Dinner?” category, Specially Selected Ravioli, available in Classic Cheese and Spinach & Mozzarella varieties, took home this year’s top spot against seven competing items. The “Catch of the Day” category was won by Fresh Atlantic Salmon, a product introduced in the last year.

Mama Cozzi’s Pizza Kitchen Take and Bake Deli Pizza has been a popular item since its introduction in 2019, and earned its spot in Aldi’s “Hall of Fame” this year. Following wins in 2019 and 2021, Aldi’s strawberries took the prize for a third time in the “Produce Pick” category.
