Do you shop at ALDI'S?

I think people have this common misconception that the food there is gross because it's not "name brand". Their brownie mix, and banana bread mix is AWESOME. I prefer to buy those things there rather than buy Pillbury or Duncan Hines.

Do you shop there? If so, what do you prefer to buy there than anyplace else?

  • Years ago, I went to Aldi's. I liked the prices & bought fruits, veggies and juice there. There aren't any where I currently live but if there were, I'd shop there.

  • No I didn't like shopping there when I lived in Florida. Their prices weren't any better ( I thought) than the other stores I shopped at. Same price as store brand at Food Lion or Publix and they don't have everything like other grocery stores so no, I never went there.

  • I do,sometimes. They used to have better prices on everything. Now you have to pay attention. I always check there add to see if they have a better price on something I need. They do carry a brand of cookie that IS the BEST premade chocolate chip cookie then any other brand.

  • The gourmet cookies? I bought those once...they are great. Their price is a little high on those, but worth it if you're in the mood for them!

  • I did for awhile until I moved out of state. They have one here too but its further away and with gas prices, the money that I am supposed to be saving would end going into my gas that then would be wasted just having to drive there.

    But I did have great experience there and the food there is just as good as some of the name brands.

  • No I dont usually. My mil told me I should try because they had good prices, but in the end it was about the same. I shop in the mornings and can usually get good meat prices at the store if I buy the discounted meats & freeze it. It is less expensive then Aldi. I also did not like many of their other items I tried there.

  • No, I use to shop there, but ended up spending way more. We never bought our meat there though. But the things they didn't have, or we just didn't like from there, and we would end up spending more by the time we got everything else at kroger. Easier for me to just do a one store shop at kroger and we spend less that way too...

  • I used to and it was great BUT my kids are now on a special diet and I have to buy organic and chemical/preservative-free as much as possible and Aldi does not cater to that.
