Aldi Has Giant, Food-Inspired Pool Floats Perfect for Summer

Your dream of relaxing on a giant doughnut in the middle of the pool? It just became a reality.

Imagine this: The weather is warm. The sun is shining. You’re ready to take a dip in the pool (with a cool drink, of course). You want to soak up the sun’s rays after your refreshing swim, so you decide to hop on a pool float. How about a giant, colorful doughnut?

For 2021, Aldi has brought back their fabulous food-shaped pool floats, including a doughnut and a larger-than-life burger complete with all the fixings. Doughnut hit the pool this year without one of these tasty-looking floats!

Here’s Why You Need a Food-Shaped Float

Well, the food floats won’t satisfy your hunger, but they have many other appetizing perks.

If you have any food Instagram-obsessed pool guests this summer, their faces will go full-on Heart Eyes Emoji when they see a giant inflatable doughnut floating in the water.

People who care about the aesthetic of their Instagram feeds know that a picture on a cute float can really make a summer pool snapshot. Plus, whatever creates a cute Instagram photo makes an even better-looking pool. The sparkling turquoise water with a colorful and photogenic burger or doughnut is—*kisses fingertips*—magnificent.

For anyone throwing a backyard bash, look no further than the Aldi pool floats. Just pair one of these with a White Claw, and you’ve got yourself a whole afternoon of maximum relaxation.

How Can I Buy One?

These trendy and fun pool floats will be available starting July 21 for $5.99. That’s pretty cheap compared to other food-inspired floats at $20-plus, so you’d be making a frugal choice by shopping for your floaty needs at Aldi. They’re also selling an ice cream cone and popsicle float if you’ve got more of a summer sweet tooth. Keep in mind, though, these floats won’t be around for long—you better snatch these guys up while you can.

To make a real splash, mix up these easy cocktails and keep sippin’ all summer long!
