- Clancy’s Sour Cream & Onion Potato Chips
Everyone loves a chip for game day. And we’re on a mission to grab the best from Aldi. That leads us right to Clancy’s sour cream & onion potato chips. They’re crunchy, salty, and have a distinct creaminess to them. They’re onion-y without tasting exclusively like onion powder. Once you dig in, it’ll be hard to stop eating these things, so grab a few bags! Any leftovers will just be yours to snack on, which is a win whether your team blows it or not.

- Happy Farms Cheese Curds Cajun Cheddar
If you’re not eating cheese curds at your game day festivities then what the hell are you doing? They’re the perfect pre-portioned, poppable, squeaky snack that any guest can enjoy. Aldi spices up the classic curd with their Cajun version and we thank them for it. These zesty, savory, slightly spicy little morsels work on any game day cheese plate you’re putting together or, if you’re feeling ambitious, you can bread and fry them, too.

- Kirkwood Chicken Fries
Chicken nuggets might look weird as part of a game day spread, but if you make them long and call them fries? That’s the perfect food. Aldi’s chicken fries are extremely savory and have the perfect amount of black pepper for a bit of bite. The coating of crumbs is even and not too thick. Follow Sporked editor-in-chief Justine Sterling’s wise words and air fry these bad boys for the perfect crispy bite every time you go back for more.

- Park Street Deli Original Potato Salad
Potato salad isn’t strictly a picnic food. For real, who doesn’t want to fill up on boiled potatoes coated in mayo when it’s the middle of winter and you basically can’t go outside for three months. Thankfully Aldi has the perfect rendition for the occasion. Their potato salad has perfectly cooked potatoes (a feat that Sporked writer Jordan Myrick found not to be the norm in store bought potato salad) and it’s well-seasoned and wonderfully mayo-y. This may not be everyone’s first pick from the snack table but trust me, those who grab it will enjoy!

You need a crisp little hit of freshness to break up all that richness, and Park Street deli dill dip is here to deliver sweet, sweet relief. This dill dip has a hefty serving of dill and is so cool and creamy it’ll work with anything from celery to broccoli. Eating raw vegetables as a game day snack has never tasted better.
