    Default Favorite Aldi Foods?

    What are some of the favorite foods you get at Aldi's? Ours just opened so I've only been a few times, but this is what I have found so far.

    Lite and Fit canned ruby red grapefruit sections
    Lite and Fit baked nacho chips
    chewy granola bars
    salsa monterey jack cheese
    half and half
    boxed pasta salad
    frozen ravioli
    cream of soups


    I haven't tried many of their meats yet. How are the frozen chicken breasts and such?

    Just curious.

    Thanks!

    I buy all of our meat at Aldi. The chicken breasts and chicken tenders are good. We tend to use the tenders more often because the breasts take longer to cook than the smaller tenders pieces.

    We also like their frozen fish and the frozen pre-made hamburgers.

    I buy all the canned tomatoes and stewed tomatoes, many other canned veggies, cheesse, shicken, frozen tilapia fish, premade hamburgers and frozen ground turkey. Also buy frozen OJ, and veggies, shredded cheese, yogurt, milk, eggs, etc...but our favorite item from Alsi is their Cinnamon Danish's. OMGosh, they are so incredibly good, but fattening, so don't buy them often....LOL Aldi has their own brand name and most things I get there are good, even the canned cream soups. I even buy the Alsi version of Benedryl for my allergies.

    ~I do most of my food shopping at Aldi and buy many of their products. I don't buy any meat but hamburger there. The frozen meats have solution added and I hate the flavor of it. I also don't buy any of the pickled things or the mayo.....nasty.A few things I think are tasty and a great value are:
    Dried cranberries
    chocolate chips
    .25 refridgerator biscuits(I use these to make donuts)
    stuffing mix
    all the cereals
    ketchup
    ranch dressing
    mini beef ravioli
    pepperoni
    cream cheese
    half & half
    canned diced tomatoes with chilis
    medium salsa
    sour cream
    ~Alot of their cookies and danish's are delicious but I try to never buy them because they are NOT a good value compared to homemade.

    We like their corned beef hash but do not have it very often as it is loaded with sodium. There sloppy joe sauce is just like manwich. I do not buy a lot of their meats except like lunchoen meats they are good. The only thing I do not like is their cottage cheese. I do not like the texture of it.

    I love their fish sticks and stif fry! Both are really good. Oh and the breakfast sandwiches. I do not like their tomato or cream of mushroom soup. Tastes funny to me!!! Also, a friend of mine bough the cheddar rice cakes and they are really good, tastes like baked cheetos.

    I buy lots of things at Aldi's and I love the value that I get for the money.

    My probable all-time favorite item is the gourmet peppered bacon.... I dont' get it regularly, but for a treat sometimes... I also like their trail mix, particularly the 'white mountain' one with white chocolate, pineapple and dried cranberries. Last year, I got bunches of this, re-wrapped it in cutesy cellophane bags with curley ribbon and gave it for teachers gifts.

    I buy a lot of items for baking at aldi: sugar, oil, butter, sour cream, cream cheese. I like several of their canned goods, I buy their version of Rotel.
    I also buy cheese, milk and eggs there too.
