Although trips to the grocery store remain a once or twice a month excursion, ALDI, the beloved German grocer, wants to make sure you’re prepared before entering the store. That’s why it’s released the specials for the month of June early—so you can shop safely and quickly, without worrying about disrupting your social distancing efforts. And this month is geared toward grilling season, with items like popsicles, burgers, pickles, and sliced cheese at the forefront of the specials. It’s officially time to dust off the grill and get cooking outdoors.
