That's a tossup.  I'm not sure.  I buy salmon ($4.99 for 1 pound of filets at Aldi).  I buy beef when on sale, usually $3.59 a pound or less.  Butter isn't cheap but at Aldi last week it was $1.49 for one pound of butter.  Milk goes up and down - last week I spent $3.19 on a gallon of whole milk.  Aldi beats the prices of the other grocery stores in town but I don't buy meat there.

Aldi's fresh meat is actually very good. I don't buy the frozen stuff, that's not good at all. But the fresh is very good quality and taste.

Quoting suzeebloch:

I've been into cooking Indian, Thai, and Chinese food lately, so I've had to stock up a bit on spices that I didn't use before. Some of them can be expensive. Saffron and ground cardamom were both $10 for a "normal" spice jar, and even then, the saffron has a tiny little envelope inside the jar. When I opened the envelope and put the saffron right in the jar, it barely covered the bottom of the jar. Expensive stuff. But it only takes a small pinch of it for any one recipe.

Not sure. Could be produce these days. Or morning star farms imitation meats. Or meat.

Probably meat and coffee, although there isn't much that is what I consider reasonably priced anymore.  LikeBecky said, spice are pretty spendy.
