Lunch can feel like a burden sometimes — or at least it does for me. When the afternoon arrives and I’m busy getting work done, the last thing I want to do is think about what I should make for lunch. When I was working full-time in an office my lunchtime woes were even worse; if I didn’t have something prepared to take with me, I would end up buying a $20 salad at the local chain around the corner and be thoroughly disappointed by how not great it was. So of course, when I find a good lunchtime find that doesn’t require any prep (and is affordable!), I’m eager to learn more. And it seems Aldi’s latest lunch find is solving that problem.

Fillo’s Walking Tamales come in three delicious flavors: Bean Salsa Verde, Bean Salsa Roja, and Bean Salsa Habanero. They are shelf-stable, vegan, gluten-free, and are ready to eat immediately. While you could make your tamale warm in the microwave, there is no heating necessary to eat it. These tamales are sold at $1.99 each, so if you’re looking for an easy shelf-stable lunch that doesn’t require you to stand over a hot stove or turn on that oven this summer, we have a feeling you’re going to want to stock up on a couple (or many) of these prepared tamales.

Not only are these Walking Tamales great for a quick and convenient lunch — both for you and the kids — but Aldi regulars also say these work well for all of your summer adventures. Going backpacking this summer, or maybe just need snacks for a long hike? Plan on spending your days at the beach and don’t feel like having to prepare a lunch before you go? These Walking Tamales are perfect for having something shelf-stable and delicious to eat when you need something on-the-go.

Plus, Aldi shoppers are raving about this lunchtime find. “I’m obsessed with these. I’m going back tomorrow and buying more,” writes one shopper on the @aldiallthetime post about this lunch find. “I am soooo excited for lunch tomorrow,” writes another.

We think it’s time to stock up on these Walking Tamales to save you from those lunchtime woes.
