Aldi Lightly Salted Popcorn vs SkinnyPop

Aldi Simply Nature Lightly Salted Popcorn

Aldi’s popcorn is an organic simple bagged popcorn. It has a good crunch and even dusting of salt.

Cost: $1.99


Compared to SkinnyPop this is one of those where you cannot tell a difference – it tasted exactly the same. With such a simple product with few ingredients it’s very easy to replicate the taste.

Cost: $2.99

Alternative Option

It’s very easy to make your own and buying the popcorn kernels is much cheaper.

If you have never made homemade stove top popcorn, I recommend using the whrily pop just add oil/fat (we use Aldi’s Coconut oil) and the kernels. When it’s complete just sprinkle some fine table salt (the smaller grained salts seem to stick better to the corn than larger salt like sea salt or kosher).
