  • gbo101 Nov 28, 5:59 p.m.

    My favorite is their oatmeal cookies. I get those every week.

  • geoherb1 Nov 28, 4:40 p.m.

    I like the fat-free ranch salad dressing and the low-fat poppyseed dressing. Plus they can't be beat on fresh produce.

  • dombekb2 Nov 28, 8:02 a.m.

    I mostly shop at Aldi for their excellent prices on fruits and vegetables. However, one product I buy quite often is Clancy's corn chips - only 99 cents a bag!

  • finesse187 Nov 28, 6:46 a.m.

  • leshobson Nov 27, 10:47 p.m.

    my family enjoys the honey wheat braided pretzels and Aldi
    has great prices on fresh fruits & veggies

  • acs0427 Nov 27, 10:32 p.m.

    I love that their butter is such a good everyday price. I get all my baking staples there. Also I am excited to try their version of K-Cups!

  • jscoupons Nov 27, 10:11 p.m.

    I have a large family (4 kids) of which 3 are growing boys- as you can imagine, my grocery bill is always rather large! Aldi helps me keep my budget in check while keeping my 'strapping men' full and satisfied! As much I love their canned goods, baking supplies, and the like- the thing I enjoy buying most from them is their lettuce sampler (at least that's what I call it!). IT has 4 different small heads of various lettuces (bibb, boston, frisee, etc.) and I love giving it a quick chop, running it through the salad spinner, and having a healthy addition to dinner each night. I've seen this same lettuce in other stores for double and triple Aldi's price- so Aldi helps me stay healthy on a budget as well! As an aside- my hubby loves their Fit and Active Chocolate Crisp Bars in his lunch. Soooooooo much cheaper than South Beach Diet snacks!!

  • ilovelucy31 Nov 27, 9:03 p.m.

    My mom an I love stocking up on fruits and veggies at aldis we also stock up on various canned foods everytime we go!!

  • morris9ja Nov 27, 8:46 p.m.

    we like the aldi dark chocolate products

  • myockey Nov 27, 8:40 p.m.

    I would love to try their chocolates! I also love their popcorn.

  • wonderswhy Nov 27, 8:25 p.m.

    I LOVE their fruit and vegetables. Amazing deals and always fresh!

  • uyenh24 Nov 27, 8:13 p.m.

    I love to go there for vegies deals.

  • twsw Nov 27, 7:40 p.m.

    I've been shopping there for several years now and frankly I don't know how we would have made it without this store during the past four years. Although they have had to increase their prices, we still do much better when we shop there. Unfortunately, I have to drive twice the distance so I keep my visits to about every four to six weeks to stock up! I hate having to pay higher prices on my inbetween trips to stores that are more local! Their cereals and their version of "goldfish" called "Penquins" are favorites at our house.

  • beachlady Nov 27, 7:37 p.m.

    I love to shop at Aldi's! I have saved so much money there and the produce is great.

  • bellyhop Nov 27, 7:24 p.m.

    Love to shop here, this is my #1 store now.
    My favorite thing to buy from here is their tilapia, you get about 7-9 fillets individually packaged for $5.99. Great Deal!

  • jlo0130861 Nov 27, 7:24 p.m.

    Favorite item is the mama Rosas frozen pepperoni pizza! Awesome!

  • southern by choice Nov 27, 7:09 p.m.

    Love to shop at Aldi the savings are always really good.

  • tthomas3 Nov 27, 7:05 p.m.

    I love the Choceur dark chocolate candy bars. They are so creamy. Most dark chocolate I get is not creamy at all, but these are really creamy and delicious. Last week I picked up 2 boxes of Choceur Cocoa Dusted Truffles for Christmas gifts. I will probably end up gifting myself with a box.

  • me2nc Nov 27, 6:44 p.m.

    I just heard about some Gouda cheese flavored krackers (they censored the correct spelling...ha) I would love to try!

  • sailtothemoon09 Nov 27, 6:09 p.m.

    We often buy the frozen seafood. We can really get a deal when it comes to this. Aldi also has great eggs, cheese, and milk prices. Great for the basics!

  • cushioncritter Nov 27, 6:02 p.m.

    I've saved enough at Aldi to try their more deluxe desserts like Pumpkin Supreme Pie (Cake?) for $7.99. The $1.19 Tortilla Chips taste just like the name brand which are on sale for $2.50 typically elsewhere.

    Even with luxury items and a full cart I rarely go over $30! Since I stopped shopping at a certain chain of stores (hint, they never have real sales any more, sometimes their flyers list regular prices as if they were sale prices), I have some money left at the end of the month.

  • alicepahl Nov 27, 5:41 p.m.

    My favorite Aldi product is their produce! Fresh and always plenty to buy with great prices.

  • snbyrum Nov 27, 5:35 p.m.

    I live a hour and a half from Aldi so I save all my grocery buying until I can get to Aldi. I absolutely love eveything about Aldi. There is no special item because everything is great. I tell all my friends it is a great place to buy groceries. All the prices beat the national chain stores. They have a great system for managing shopping carts. No car will ever be damaged by a run away cart. Their store brands exceed the quality and taste of national brands.

  • loriac1969 Nov 27, 5:30 p.m.

    I love all of Aldi's products!! I've been shopping here for years and have converted many people into Aldi's fans. If I had to pick one favorite product I would say it's the blue corn tortilla chips! They are so much better and cheaper than any other store brand or even a name brand

  • joycem612 Nov 27, 5:00 p.m.

    I love EVERYTHING about Aldi! No frills! Prices and value are great with many unusual and international products. Produce is fresh, pizza is fantastic,good buys on meat and dairy products, frozen foods are terrific. Just can't say enough good things. A factoid--did you know that Aldi owns Trader Joe's? That should let you know how good it is. To learn more about Aldi check it out at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aldi

  • kcampbell113 Nov 27, 4:56 p.m.

    I like their tortilla chips. I would love to try their chocolate based on the comments.

  • sarah234 Nov 27, 4:38 p.m.

    To be honest, I've never visited Aldi. However, the chocolates do sound really great, and the holiday catalog is most intriguing! Thanks for the opportunity - I'd love to have a giftcard to use on my first visit to the store!

  • quantumnarumi Nov 27, 4:27 p.m.

    I, too, adore their Chocolates! :)

  • jzito74 Nov 27, 4:21 p.m.

    Happy Holidays to YOU - I have never shopped in Aldi, but I would love to try the Choceur Belgian Seashells...they look delish!

  • bcorbin Nov 27, 4:13 p.m.

    I love their apple chicken sausages!

  • amhumes Nov 27, 4:09 p.m.

    I love their Benton Fig Newtons.

  • mmillswilson Nov 27, 3:53 p.m.

    I absolutely love Aldi's fruit!

  • germanirene1 Nov 27, 3:36 p.m.

    I grew up in Germany and my parents did all their shopping at Aldi. I live all the German stuff they have- especially the chocolate covered ginger bread hearts! Takes me back to my childhood :)

  • aprilgscott Nov 27, 3:33 p.m.

    I would like to use their red velvet cake mix to make red velvet cheesecake brownies for a gift wrapping party with my girlfriends! Who wouldn't like chocolate and cheesecake together! YUM-O!

  • kat08858 Nov 27, 3:26 p.m.

    Pumpkin spice cream cheese spread. YUMmmm!

  • aelessard Nov 27, 3:19 p.m.

    The chocolate and butterscotch chips for baking at Aldi are great! They're wicked inexpensive and taste just as good as name brands.

  • scbunn Nov 27, 3:18 p.m.

    ALDI has the best prices on chocolates and who doesn't love chocolate in their Christmas stocking!?!?
