Never heard of Aldi before this thread...I wonder if there are some in the German towns?

I just looked it up, and in 2011 50 of them opened in the metro NY area. It looks like there's only one on the island, and it's not close enough to be practical or economical to shop at, but it looks like more are on the way.

Upon further research, apparently there's one right in my town. I don't know why I've never seen it...It's supposed to be in the plaza by the mall...it must be tiny and probably doesn't even advertise as a grocer. I'm going to try to go over there this weekend and check it out. I will report back with my findings.

ALDI! Yes! When I get homesick, I can go to Aldi and find something that I only get in Germany otherwise. Besides, the layout of the store is exactly the way it is in Aldis in Germany.

They have German bread and German candy (a knockoff of duplo, yogurette, and kinderriegel. They also have THE Aldi chocolate).

For Easter, they have good German chocolate stuff, for Christmas they have popular German cookies. And they have other seasonal German stuff.

There was one in the NoVa area (Woodbridge), there were a few in KC and there are Aldis here in Indy as well.

At Aldi I can get a pack of blackberries for 99 cents! I pay at LEAST $2 for the same at any other grocery here. 5 kiwi fruits for $1.99, yes please! And this isn't a rural Aldi, either.
I LOVE Aldi! Especially for fresh fruits and stuff. Yum.

Also if you have a world market in your area they have a lot of stuff from around the world, including Candies & coffee, & beer.

.... are we talking about the same Aldi? We have them all over, but I've never been impressed with the quality of their goods. Most of ours seem to be in lower income areas (which is not a bad thing) but their best prices are on packaged foods... which I don't eat at all. *shrug*

So, we had bacon and eggs for dinner and the eggs I got on sale last night were actually pretty good. Not as good as our own eggs, but definitely edible.

The Aldi here can be a little hit or miss on produce, but for the most part it's pretty good. They had pomegranates for 79 cents yesterday, but they were all dried out and not worth it. All the other produce looked very good, though.

I am an egg eater. I don't know why but I really like brown ones. Experts say that there is no difference in the nutrient content of white and brown eggs but every time I buy eggs, I would get the brown ones.

I think it just depends on your area, because that is the same experience I have had with mine. But I think in other places where food prices are higher it's a bit different. I do like Aldi because when they have sales on produce or meat it's a great deal, but overall, it's not significantly cheaper.
Unless you eat processed and packaged foods, haha.

Jules -REALLY? They should have had those years ago. I love their knock-off chocolate.


Aldi is a hit or miss here as well. You have to come in when they just re-stocked their vegetables or they aren't that since. They even have organic veggies here as well as other foods (their own organic brand though. Pretty much every supermarket has their own organic brand here by now though). I don't do my all my groceries there, but it's great if 1) you're low on money and 2) If you need canned goods and such. I don't eat really made meals. Though I do buy some things like tomatoe puree and corn canned for when we have nothing left.

Brown eggs make it easier to see when you've added shell to your dish Worth the small mark up for that.
