My new favorite thing from Aldi -- Benita Premium Ice Cream Bars! They are great. Come in strawberry, mango, and coconut. Super creamy and have real bits of fruit in them. Strawberry is great, but I am totally addicted to the coconut.

Also, they have blueberries right now for 99 cents!

Ripe blueberries are the best thing ever. Time for a jog (ha, walk) to Aldis.

I absolutely love Aldi's Light and Fit Wildberry Sorbet and ice cream bars. Unfortunately, my local store was out of them the last two times I was there.

I thought ALDIs had the best white grapes ever- but then I tried the red ones. It's unreal for grapes to taste that good!

I wonder if ALDI will sell any cherries this year?

Aldi has Boca burgers for $2.50! I don't think I've ever seen them so cheap. I'm not a big fan myself, but my 13 year old vegetarian niece is visiting next month so I bought a couple packages.

The Wild Berry Sorbet and Ice Cream bars were in stock again finally. It was all I could do to resist buying the new Magnum ice cream bars they had as a special purchase. God, I was tempted. I saw my doctor Wednesday, so the "lose weight or die" lecture was still fresh in my head. I resisted. If they still have them next week, I make no promises.

I love Aldi specially stocking up on dry herbs, rubs and baking ingredients.

Not food, but... some Aldi love for the $3.99 hanging Impatiens plant I bought a few months ago. It was one of only a handful they had left. It had no blooms and a very sad "Charlie Brown's Christmas" Christmas tree vibe going, but with some TLC it turned into this glorious thing.

Hrm. Couple of these in my area. After reading this thread, my wallet's itching to give them a try. One of my coworkers described them as the Ikea of grocery stores.

There is an Aldi's near me - I just passed it on my way to my recently relocated office. I've never been, tho I go to Trader Joes often. I'll have to check them out!

ok, first time to Aldi's last weekend. I think the one closest to me is a small one, and doesn't have much. Do they tend to vary?

I was also disappointed that they didn't have the clams y'all have been raving about. I WANT CLAMS!

Aldi stores tend to not be very large in comparison to other grocery stores. Also, aside from a core of products that they always carry, their stock changes from week to week. You need to pay attention to their ads to see what they're promoting each week. Even with that, there will be items they stock for limited amounts of time that they don't advertise. It can be a crap shoot.

I thought so too - but that's not the case at all. You should give it a try.
I had the same kind of preconceptions, especially listening to my coworkers talking about the store, but after seeing this thread, and in the FOODEE board no less, I told my honey we have to try em. Lucky us there's one right up the street from us. :)

I'll be sure to leave my thoughts once I've had the opportunity to try their food. :)

They have got so much better over the years. When i went about 15 years ago or so, their stuff wasn't so great, just cheap. But now they are very good. Unfortunately I don't often get to Aldi, but I love some of their products. The smoked salmon with the sachet of orange and mustard sauce is amazing, for under £2, and their own brand crisps are my very favourite kind. They are just so potatoey, crisp and well flavoured - just what a crisp should be, lol. Their fruit and veg are just always so fresh looking and at least a third less than at other supermarkets.

I feel quite famous as they used a comment I made on their products, on a "Hot Deals" site I frequent, in a recent national leaflet and on their site. :p

Randi, be on the look out..those clams should be back in the next couple of weeks I think. They seem to come out once a quarter.


I bought all the pies they had for our family Christmas and everyone loved them. The apple received rave reviews and I thought the key lime was tasty and they were 4 bucks a piece.

I have stopped buying produce there. It was just going bad way too fast for me.

I still buy my hams there and I stocked up on the clams and their seasoned potato wedges the last time I was in there....we haven't been in a while..I need to go back!

Ooh, well yeah. If I wasn't sold before I am for sure now. The salmon sounds amazing and we love potato chips in this house!

And that is really neat! :)

5 lbs oranges for $1.49!!! YEAH!!!
We got 4 lbs for $1.36 or something like that today. :)

And beef jerky. What would cost $5 or $6 at Wal-Mart or Krogers cust us $2 at Aldi's and tasted just as good. :)

I'm a believer now! And I'll keep on going back and trying new things little by little til we've figured out just where it does and doesn't fit on our shopping list! :)

Thanks for all your rave reviews. Never would have tried shopping here if I hadn't seen so much positivity about it in the Foodee Board! :bow:
