Aldi Vegan Hot Dogs were tried and enjoyed for the first time today. A year has passed since my last LBⓋ (Low Budget Ⓥeganism) post. If you dig deep enough, I promise you, they started with LBⓋ#1. Here is a link, Zelda….
These Ⓥegan Dawgs do have more preservatives than I’d care for, but were still consumed and delicious. Here is the equation that will explain how I list and price the ingredients.
Ingredient (servings per container) @ $Container.Price = $PricePER.Serving
At the end, the overall Price Per Serving is tallied and summed to an overall price that seems accurate of how much all of the ingredients cost per serving.
- Sauerkraut (21) @ $2.69 = $0.13 per serving
- Mustard (112) @ $2.18 = $0.02 per serving
- Tomato (2) @ $0.25 = $0.13 per serving
- Onion (6) @ $1.59 = $0.27 per serving
- Cucumber (8) @ $0.88 = $0.11 per serving
- Buns (8) @ $0.85 = $0.11 per serving
- Vegan Hot Dog @ (5) $2.99 = $0.60 per serving
This Dawg would tally to $1.37 per serving. And even cheaper if all of the ingredients were purchased at Aldi.
Go ride a bicycle. Drink a good Beer. Watch Baseball. Enjoy a Ⓥegan Dawg!
Aldi has always impressed me with their prices and their quality. I have finally tried their Veggie Patties and I need to talk about them. They have two versions. One is advertised as Vegan on the package. The other is also Vegan according to the ingredients, but a Black Bean Chipotle burger with the additive, Cellulose Gum.
Other than that one additive, the ingredients are stated to be mostly Organic and Wholesome. These patties were baked in the oven. I noticed the quality of these patties immediately while placing them on my parchment paper. The Black Bean Chipotle burgers were a bit more flavorful, but not as healthy as the other Veggie burger. It is a funny game with the different levels of “healthy” foods. Both of these Patties are given two thumbs up and I am sold. At only $2.49 per four patties, with their quality and deliciousness, these are a no-brainer. I’ve been eating the Vegan Boca burgers for years now. They are delicious, but more expensive and with more additives. Methylcellulose, Caramel Color, Artificial Flavors, Disodium Guanylate and Disodium Inosinate do not sound appetizing and quite frankly is BULLSHIT to be added to food. Boca burgers are usually $3 + and basically a joke, if you ask me. (someone asked me, but it was myself:)
That’s one thing I have learned immediately after choosing the Vegetarian Lifestyle off was that the quicker easier non-meat options are filled with SHIT additives. I, as well as many of you, do not always have time to prepare wholesome food. This Aldi discovery is Euphoric. Not to mention, Aldi doing away with pesticides. I’m a bigger fan of Aldi, now, than I ever have been before.
More Wholesome food at a lower price, Aldi is attempting to change the world for the better with their own hands. THANK YOU.
