Aldi Product Feature: Pototo Puffs from Aldi (Season's Choice) $1.79

Aldi potato puffs seasons choice
My kids have never really liked oven fries, but I decided to try out Aldi's potato puffs for those days where I need an easy side. I was very surprised when the kids liked the Potato Puffs from Aldi. The Pototo Puffs are made out of shredded potatoes, and they taste great.

While they are not the healthiest option, the potato puffs from Aldi are great for those days, where I don't feel like cooking a big meal.

Aldi's Potato Puffs has 0 grams of trans fat per serving. 

The kids love to get the potato puffs, whenever we make homemade burgers, and with a fresh salad on the side the potato puffs are just a perfect compliment. They are the perfect size for little hands that do not want to bother with picking up a fork, and my kids usually fight over, who is going to have the last potato puffs.

The oven instructions are very simple: Cook in the oven for about 25 minutes at 400 degrees F. Turn the potato puffs half way through, to get them crisp and brown on each side. According to package instructions you can also deep fry the potato puffs.

The potato puffs get nice and crispy when baked in the oven, and in my family's opinion they are much better than the regular store bought fries. I personally do not see any reason to deep fry them, as they taste great hot from the oven.

The price is great too at $1.79 for a 2 lb bag of potato puffs.

At Publix a similar product would cost $2.69, at Walmart $2.08 and at Target around $2.84.

As with all of Aldi's products the Potato Puffs has a Double Guarantee:

"Quality, taste and satisfaction are always DOUBLE guaranteed at ALDI. If for any reason, you are not 100% satisfied with any product, we will gladly replace the product AND refund your money."


  1. They look delicious. I could see them as a side for many quick dishes. I remember having something like those when I was a kid. I appreciate the time you take for these reviews and also for including the price comparisons.

  2. I have used these for years ~ almost every weekend for my "famous" "Potato, Egg and Cheese Stuff" ... I microwave the puffs right in the bag to defrost them ~ moosh them all up using a kitchen towel so as not to burn my hands after taking them out of the microwave, spray a big non-stick skillet, start the now hashbrown to browing with a little salt, pepper, onion powder and a littler bit of garlic powder. Whisk 10-12 eggs with a little milk, pour them into a "well" I've made in the almost cooked has browns, scramble the eggs, then stir the potatoes back down from the edges into the eggs, stir in 1/2 a bag of either monterey jack/cheddar cheese or mexican style cheese (shredded from Aldi)'s delish and the kids love it ... great for when they have had sleepover friends ~ it feeds a crowd! If we don't eat it all, I put the leftovers into single serving zippy bags and it makes for a quick breakfast during the week on our way out the door ~ or for me at work! Enjoy!

  3. Cheryl, one of the things I think new Aldi shoppers finds most difficult is adjusting to the new brands that Aldi sells. We are so used to our "name brands" that it often takes us a while to try the new products.

    Momworkdc, it sounds like such an easy meal. Thank you for sharing it with us. I love easy!

  4. I cant find Seasons Choice broccoli @ cheddar cheese Baked Potato Quick Sides. Aldi was the only one that carried this product. I loved it very much.
