9 Best Aldi Dips You Can Buy

There are a lot of Aldi dips, and, like many other Aldi products, some are great and some should be avoided at all costs. And, in true Aldi fashion, the selection of dips is always changing. For this taste test, we managed to get our hands on 28 Aldi dips—including many Aldi salsa flavors, Aldi hummus options, and Aldi guacamole, along with classics like Aldi spinach dip and Aldi Buffalo chicken dip. I promise, we will continue to update this article as new and returning Aldi dips arrive on the shelves. For example, it’s not Aldi dessert dip season, but it will be. And when those Aldi dips creep out of their burrows we’ll celebrate in the traditional manner, with ribbons and big hats and a ranking update. 

But, in the meantime, we’ve ranked the top nine Aldi dips out of the 28 we tasted. 

In our search for the best Aldi dips, we simply looked for the best flavors. And, of course, they had to be scoopable or dippable—we weren’t interested in loose sauces. Dips only, please. Here are the top nine best Aldi dips you can buy.


Casa Mamita Small Batch Restaurant Style Salsa Mild

Best Aldi Salsa

Casa Mamita Small Batch Restaurant Style Salsa Mild

This shelf-stable Aldi salsa isn’t the world’s greatest salsa, but it’s savory, it’s chunky, and it’s cheap. It even has a touch of heat to it, which is more than I can say for most Tostitos or Pace salsas on the shelf. Served with some tortilla chips (Aldi’s Clancy tortilla chips aren’t the best tortilla chips, but they’ll do in a pinch) and a couple of Margaritas, this Aldi salsa will complete a lovely at-home happy hour. It’s definitely the best Aldi salsa you can buy.

Park Street Deli Spinach Dip

Best Aldi Spinach Dip

Park Street Deli Spinach Dip

This Aldi spinach dip made it onto our best spinach dip list, and, after tasting it again for this ranking, I am pleased to say the quality has not dipped. It’s super creamy and really thick—but not so thick that it’ll break a chip. It has this unique sweetness that you don’t get in a lot of spinach dips—almost like a carroty sweetness, which makes it a great complement to vegetables. Skip the ranch dressing and pick up this Aldi spinach dip to serve with your crudites.

Park Street Deli Tzatziki

Best Aldi Tzatziki

Park Street Deli Tzatziki

The selection of Aldi dips includes far more tzatziki flavors than anyone would expect. I mean, name another grocery store (outside of Greece) that carries more than, like, two options for store bought tzatziki. Anyway, even though there are multiple flavors, the original Aldi tzatziki is the way to go. It’s tangy and cucumbery and salty and creamy. Perfect with a pita chip or some crunchy vegetables or drizzled onto a homemade gyro.

Park Street Deli Buffalo Style Chicken

Best Game Day Dip

Park Street Deli Buffalo Style Chicken

Even though this Aldi Buffalo chicken dip didn’t make it into our best Buffalo chicken dip ranking, it still deserves a spot on this list of the best Aldi dips. Would I recommend you run out and get it right away? No. But if you’re at Aldi and you’re shopping for snacks for a game day gathering, then you should toss it into your cart. It has a good, pure Buffalo flavor. It’s creamy. And it has good chunks of chicken. My one quibble is that it’s quite salty. So, skip the chips and eat this Aldi Buffalo chicken dip with some fresh, crunchy celery sticks instead.

Park Street Deli Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Best Hummus (Runner-Up)

Park Street Deli Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

There are actual chunks of real roasted pepper piled in the middle of this Aldi hummus. And it’s good roasted red pepper. It tastes fresh and flame-kissed. And even the hummus itself—without the red pepper chunks—tastes like roasted red pepper. It’s sweet and vegetal, but it’s also still creamy and earthy, like good, plain hummus. This Aldi hummus is better than any name brand red pepper hummus. And it would have been the best Aldi hummus if not for our number one pick for the best Aldi dip of all.

Park Street Deli Dill Dip

Best Aldi Veggie Dip

Park Street Deli Dill Dip

This Aldi dill dip placed high on our ranking of the best veggie dip. It’s so unique. It’s a little sweet and very dilly. Essentially, it’s pickle dip—though, it leans into bread and butter pickle dip territory. That’s definitely not something you see every day. The best Aldi dips can only be found at Aldi, and this one certainly qualifies. Plus, it can do double duty. Yes, it’s a great dip on a plain potato chip. But it’s also a great sauce for salmon or stirred into canned tuna for a quick tuna salad.

Aldi Chunky Guacamole

Best Aldi Guacamole

Aldi Chunky Guacamole

Most store bought guacamole bears little to no resemblance to real, homemade guacamole. So I came in with low expectations, but this Aldi guacamole really blew me away. Sure, it has some of that citric acid flavor you find in premade guac, but it mostly tastes like fresh, creamy avocado. And the label doesn’t lie—it is chunky! And it’s also a little bit spicy, so beware if your definition of mild is zero heat.

Park Street Deli Bacon Cheddar

Best Cheese Dip

Park Street Deli Bacon Cheddar

Once again, here’s a unique offering from the Aldi dips collection. Usually, I am not a huge proponent of bacon-flavored things—or, really, anything premade with bacon. But this Aldi cheese dip changed my mind. It’s really smoky and creamy and there are real, tiny bits of bacon all mixed in. It’s almost got a French onion dip thing going on, but without the onion if that makes sense. It’s unlike any dip I’ve ever tried before, and it will be the center of attention on any snack spread you whip up.

Park Street Deli Olive Tapenade Hummus

Best of the Best

Park Street Deli Olive Tapenade Hummus

I adore this Aldi hummus. It’s tangy. It’s salty. It’s creamy. It keeps you coming back bite after bite. The blend of creamy hummus and flavorful tapenade is so good. It tastes fresh—practically homemade. You could eat it with vegetables or pita chips, but it’d also be good on a soft pretzel or spread onto a sandwich or used in a rice bowl. If you can’t handle olives, then this is not the Aldi dip for you—opt for any of the other eight on this list and you’ll be happy. But if the olive bar is your second home, then this Aldi hummus is a new staple for you.
