Even as many states around the country begin to reopen, you may still feel uneasy about spending large quantities of time in enclosed spaces. Luckily, ALDI, the beloved German grocer, is here to make sure you feel plenty prepared before entering the store and has thus released its list of July specials early. This way, you can shop quickly, knowing exactly what’s on your list before you even get inside.

This month, ALDI is stocking the shelves with all the summer essentials—ice cream sandwiches, chicken kebabs, hard cider—as well as launching a partnership with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, proffering a selection of lemon-themed food, drink, and non-food items. A portion of the proceeds from any product sold from the collection will be donated to ALSF (we’re talking everything from mini lemon cakes to lemon-tinged cheeses). Note the dates on these specials, then get to shopping.
