It’s good! Did you know the Aldi’s chain is owned by Trader Joe’s?

@MM423:  We used to shop at Aldi a lot, partly because there was one on our block. I rarely bought meat or produce there, but it was great for frozen and canned/foods. 

@KatyElle:  I didn’t know that!

My Fiance shops at Aldi for certain things. Non perishables from there are fine and their frozen foods seem to be ok but I have never bought fruit, veggies, meat, or dairy from there because it just don’t look great! I would recommend it for certain things but definitely dont go in there expecting to find everything on your grocery list!

I know a couple people who shop there.  I’m not sure if I will since I can get brand name items at grocery stores for similar prices or less with sales and coupons.

@KatyElle:  Isn’t it the other way around?

We occasionally shop in Aldi in the UK. Generally it’s cheap and cheerful but relatively good quality.

I am pretty picky about my produce and meats too, I’ve never had a problem with them. It is kind of low budget, but you’ll save money. Come prepared with a quarter for the shopping carts though. In the summer however I always prefer the farmer’s market when possible.

@SpecialSundae:  I don’t think so. My husband works for Trader Joe’s and I believe he said they own Aldi’s. I’ll check!

Not me, the Aldi’s around me are pretty ghetto and nasty.  Stepped foot in couple of them and never again…

@KatyElle:  According to Wikipedia, Trader Joe’s is owned by Aldi Nord and Aldi (in the US) is owned by Aldi Sud.

My Fiance shops at Aldi sometimes, but he’s in the UK. I haven’t seen any Aldi stores here in So Cal..not yet anyways!
