ALDI

What the heck happened to this place? When I was growing up, ALDI was the place where poor people went to purchase poor-people food.

Now, ALDI is the place where just about everyone goes to get high-quality groceries for reasonable prices. It's crazy. I'm not even sure the uber poor shop there any longer. Everything is organic and the meats and cheeses are outstanding. Hell, they don't even sell bologna. How did such a massive transition occur?

I hate it. They just opened one up near me, but I'll go to HEB til I die vs this place.

First of all you have to pay for carts with quarters. I don't trust their generics compared to HEB (Texas's equivalent to Hy-Vee, no affiliation). They have knock off beer... knock off Samuel Adams and Shiner Bock...wtf. Just not my thing.

Aldi is okay as long as you arenít buying essentials, just stuff like chips, coffee and other bagged/can goods.

I tried their milk and produce twice and both times it went to shit after 2 days regardless of ripeness or expiration date.

Trader Joe's synergy

And my local had bologna the last time I was in there.

Their staples haven't changed much, and they are still hella cheap on dairy, and whatever produce they have in their flyer that week. But they have added some more upscale items on a fairly haphazard basis [euphemism 'seasonal values']. There's plenty I'll find at one Aldis I don't see at another, let alone my family being able to find it across the state when I mention it to them.

Cheese is excellent. German sausage, spaetzle, chocolate, and premium cookies are all very good.

My wife is obsessed with Aldi. We donít buy our meat from there. Everything else tastes fine though.

They are in the middle of remodeling ours. Itís supposed to close for five weeks. My wife is super pissed about it.

I have had good luck with the 2% milk. We are not big milk drinkers mostly for cooking so its there near or at expiration date yet still isnt sour. Maybe your fridge isnt cold enough.

They have the freshest eggs and a large is still a large. The fruit is so so I kinda stay away from it. If you like German foods its excellent probably because its a German owned company. ALDI is the largest Grocery in Germany I have read. If you like Braunschweiger get there brand its excellent. Frozen fries ice creams are good. Lot of stuff is good there and some stuff is just bla after a few trips you know what to get.

Very worth it. In my experience, most all of the renovation efforts are to make space for the higher quality stuff.

Of particular personal interest, the renovated stores have a dried fruit and nut section on par with Trader Joes [bulk cashews, pecans, walnuts, . . . dried apricot, cherry, cranberry, . . . all sorts of trail mix and snack mix, etc]

Good bit of expansion in packaged deli meat, specialty cheeses, organic produce, . . . a flower section, as well.

That's pretty much their aim.

Other retailers caught on to how much money Walmart was making off the grocery side and they want a piece of it.

It's why Amazon bought out Whole Foods and Aldi's is trying to go bigger.

IIRC Trader Joe’s and U.S. Aldi are owned by the two quarreling sons of the European Aldi company.

I don't shop at Aldi's. A few years ago my parents bought me a steak for my birthday (We're simple folks) and I put it in the freezer.

It had turned brown, IN THE FREEZER, within two days.

That's the first, only, and hopefully last time I ever see that happen.

Call me a meat hipster, but I buy most of my meat at a butcher. I don't trust supermarket mass produced shit.
