The winners of 41 different categories within the 13th annual 2021 Product of the Year Awards were recently announced, and low-cost grocery chain Aldi had several of its exclusive items make the list. One of those is the best breakfast product!
Around 40,000 grocery shoppers answered global research company Kantar’s survey and voted the Aunt Maple’s Protein Pancake Mix at Aldi as the #1 breakfast product on the market. It’s got 14 grams of protein and 220 calories per serving and all you need to make it is water! This combo, plus a healthy fat like peanut butter, make this breakfast a well-rounded meal that will keep you full for hours. (Related: The 7 Healthiest Foods to Eat Right Now.)
Aunt Maple’s Protein Pancake Mix also comes in an Oat Pancake and Waffle Mix variety, and their high protein content is likely what landed them at the top of the Breakfast category ahead of others.
“For all the obvious reasons, shoppers are spending less time in the supermarket than ever, but still crave new and innovative products to light up these difficult times,” Mike Nolan, the global CEO of Product of the Year Management, said. “Because of this, we are more excited than ever to announce the 2021 Product of the Year winners and help shoppers find that ‘great new product’ when it matters most, however they do their shopping this year.”
