I can't think of a store with better prices for such good quality products!! Would be lost without Aldi's, went there today. Grocery prices are astounding and I'm glad for one grocery that can be counted on for the best prices.

Unbelievable prices on many things! I do most of my shopping there.

Absolutey love Aldi. Their Butter Pecan ice cream is to die for, no-one make it better. I buy everything they have, no complaints. The one thing is that they are a 'seasonal' store. I went to buy Caramel topping for the Butter Pecan Ice cream and they said they only had a few jars left, it's seasonal. Have run into this for coconut (Easter only) and other items too. If you see something different you like, then buy it, it might not be there next time.

I shop at Aldi regularly. Primarily, i purchase dairy products, staples (ie: flour, sugar, salt, etc) and fresh produce there. I can buy fresh mozzarella balls there for about $3 less than at Kroger. Their milk is always cheaper than Walmart, there cheeses are tasty and cost less. I don't buy their prepackaged salad greens because I find them poor quality, but their fresh produce is usually quite acceptable. I've been buying their fresh pineapple and loving it all summer. I haven't bought meat there and I don't buy a lot of frozen food. Paper plates are a bargain there, but I like name brand paper towels and napkins. Try it, you may like it. Also, about the carts, I often find that, at Walmart or Kroger, I have to try several carts before I find one that steers correctly and doesn't squeak. That is never the case at Aldi. I'm happy to put the quarter in to get a cart that is easy to use and doesn't sound like a one man band!

Have never heard of this store but most of the stores I've gone to do this also. As a matter of fact I was making chili one time and had bought a can of chili beans (chili is the ONLY place I will even touch a bean and as a kid not even then. Had always wished mom wouldn't put them in). Well I opened the can and ended up calling my mom to tell her I found my dream can of chili beans and asked her why she didn't get this kind when I was growing up. The can only had sauce in it and zero beans. I did take the can in and told them about it and they said "Oh I'm sorry, go ahead and get another".

We have an Aldi's (only 2 blocks from my apt.). Prices are great , and this
week's ad had comparison of prices with photos of namebrand items, and
Aldi's brands and prices. An exceptionally clean , well organized store.
Eggs, soups,gallon of milk, breads usually up to 50% less than Wmt.
It takes a while to do your quality comparisons ... but am sure you will
be pleased and shop there more often.
Always courteous, efficient cashiers, too!

I love my Aldi's in CT. I save a good amount of money there. Their brands are wonderful {only a couple of things I have found that I didn't like}. Try their mayonnaise, it is just as good as Hellmans and under $2.00 a jar!

Love aldi but have to read ingredients carefully. Lots of thinhs have partially hydroginated oils and high fructose corn syrup. But many of their products I love and love the prices
