    Default quality of Aldi fish sticks?

    Anyone want to comment on the Aldi brands of fish sticks? I notice they are having a sale on them this week, and I was thinking of stocking up. We don't eat a lot of processed food but I like to keep a couple boxes of better quality fish sticks on hand for quick dinners. How does Aldi compare with the national brands like Gorton's or Van DeCamps? Are they fish filets or patties?

    I cannot comment specifically on Aldi's fish sticks, but I do know that a lot of the fish used for commercial production of fish sticks comes from the waters in the far east and there have been a handful of studies showing a higher amount of radiation in these fish since the nuclear melt down in Japan.

    I agree, Jamauk. My brother has a job that some of his duties are to monitor radiation levels, and he has said that we have just seen the tip of the iceberg with radiation levels in the sea.

    Don't know anything about the fish sticks or radiation levels, I have bought their salmon and shrimp and don't have any problem with them. I do realize fish sticks are a whole other thing.

    They have several kinds of fish. We have tried them. They are okay. I think a lot of fish sticks, etc, is more breading than fish lately. I am not impressed with any brand out there, but will eat them for something different once in awhile. I would suggest buying one box each to try. Don't stock up on anything till you have tried them. Catsup helps

    I believe by the ingredients and nutrition information it should say "Product of....."

    Thanks. I guess I had a duh moment.
    I usually read lablels, but when I have the hubby with me shopping and he wants something different, I tend to get a bit slack with things. I do however pay strict attention to prices.

    I like them better than Gorton's but not as much as Van deCamps.

    We have to be careful with fish sticks as many give Hubby bad headaches. The Aldi's ones are one of the few that do not give him headaches.

    My Aldi's have fish fillets, bread fish patties, and breaded fish sticks.

    Aldi's has a 100% guarantee so if you find them yucky you can return the rest of the package and your receipt and get your money back.

    From their website

    Thanks for the comments. I will get a couple boxes and give them a try.

    We did not have fish sticks growing up and I always wanted to try them. I tried the Aldi's brand a few months ago and they were tasty, not sure how they compare to others as I haven't tried them.

    I served mine with a homemade tartar sauce and fries with homemade mayo. VERY fatening meal, but a nice treat. I would buy them again.

    They are an OK alternative to actual fish, where I live now I wouldn't eat the fish that you catch (if it's even legal to catch and not release). When I go back home I do occasionally fish for rainbow and brown trout and must say I prefer them 10-1 over the fish sticks. There is no need for sauce at all, just fry and eat.

    Hi Josephhgoins, how have you been?

    I agree with you-regular fish is the BEST when it's done right.

    Don't know about the fish sticks cuz we don't have an Aldi's..boo hoo...love that store.

    For myself I always check the "Product of ....." if it says China, I do not buy. I try not to purchase anything made in China and let me tell you it is hard! Just about everything is made in China....bring the productions back to USA!!!!
