Aldi

If I add Aldo to my grocery store rotation is there anything I should definitely take advantage of or avoid for that matter?
I’m just not that familiar with them.

Watching the thread for responses, but I can't help. I keep meaning to try Aldi's, but there's none really convenient to us.

I buy a lot of different things at Aldi when I think about going there. I tend to stay away from their meat both fresh meat and the lunch meat, unless it is the higher priced special offerings of salamis at different times of the year, they can be good. I love Aldi's chocolate bars,especially the one with chili when I started buying them they were about 99 cents but last time I think they were 1.29 or maybe more.but still worth it. We used to love their frozen salmon burgers but they have stopped carrying those. Milk and eggs are always a bargain as well.

Definitely, the Moser Roth Chocolate, the Coffee is good, the Sourdough bread is awesome... They have brioche hamburger buns that are great and Senor Rico Rice pudding is good also. Spiral sliced ham is a real deal also.

Aldi?? What do you wanna know? I'm pretty much an expert on that chain, grew up buying from them in Germany. My go to are the non-Gmo exotic blend vegetable chips, Belle Vie Sparkling Water, Atomic Spice pickles (they are so good, I save the juice and drink it after a work-out), frozen Scallops for $10, can't beat that, and many other things. As mentioned by others, the Rice pudding is legit, Sourdough is great and some times they have Organic Pumpkin Bread that is sooo good!! I also like their Pils, Wernesgruner. Pretty similar to Warsteiner actually!
Of course they also have knick knacks for the house hold that are pretty phenomenal! Bought a chef knife once that is still super sharp!
Get the app and check out what they have in store, currently and a week ahead. Some things go fast!
Oh, and don't forget a quarter for the cart :)
