Menu Writer of the Month: Aldi

A lot of people don’t realize that Aldi carries about 13,000 items weekly, so there’s not much you can’t get there. You may not have the selection of 10 different types of soups or jellies, but you can usually walk out of there finding the majority of your desired items. My advice to you is to just go and give it a try like I did. Buy your box of shredded wheat cereal or the taco seasoning mix for a week and see if you can tell the difference. Compare prices and if there’s something in particular you don’t like then know that for the next time and buy that one ingredient elsewhere. Meat and dairy prices fluctuate like any other store, but sliced cheese, deli meat, butter, vegetables and fruit are always substantially lower. I have been shopping there for years.
