If you are looking to enjoy a glass of wine at the beach this summer but don’t want to deal with the obnoxious sand, Aldi’s got a new solution for you. The German-based retailer has come up with a new floating wine glass that stays up in both the sand and the water. And the best part is that they are not only practical, but incredibly affordable, too.
Aldi’s beach wine glasses have a decorative stabby spike bottom instead of a traditional flat bottom for better stability in the sand. And if that weren’t enough, the wine glasses can also float in the water. But keep in mind that they aren’t actually made of glass: they are made out of sturdy reusable plastic instead.
Many Aldi fans have come up with several clever ways of using the glasses. Not only can you pour a glass of your favorite brand of wine, but you can also use them for juice, water, or even snacks. According to social media, some people have even used the wine glasses to hold their gold fish crackers, among other midday poolside snacks.
The glasses retail for about $2 each and come in either turquoise, white, or clear and have a 13.5 oz capacity. Unfortunately, you can’t buy them online and have to visit your nearest Aldi store to purchase them.
In addition to the floating wine glasses, Aldi has an array of different and affordable summer products on sale, including Crane water sports balls for $6.99, Crane insulated 64-ounce beverage cooler for $9.99, and a Crofton Salad Bowl with ice pack for about $5.99. In other words, Aldi has everything you may need for the ultimate summer backyard party or beach getaway this year.
If you don’t live near an Aldi but still want to get your hands on a floating wine glass, you’re in luck. Unsurprisingly, Amazon sells beach spikers online. There’s also the Beach Glass Bouquet, an online store that sells similar design, but are much more expensive than Aldi’s product. One Beach Glass will cost about $11.
