A home cook has revealed how Aldi’s popular $3.50 garlic dip can be used to completely transform your potato bake.
The Mediterranean Delite budget buy has been selling out across Australia for the past two months, with men and women using it to make everything from pizza bases to salad dressings.
Shopper Jodie noticed the trend on social media and decided to join the hype by trying something new.
‘I decided to join the bandwagon and buy the Aldi garlic dip and use it in my potato bake for tonight – omg this is going to be amazing,’ Jodie said and posted two images to the Aldi Fans Australia Facebook group.
