    My family and I love Aldi! I am a long time vegetarian and thir line of “fit and active” yogurts as well as their Southwestern Veggie sandwhiches (frozen) are some of my favorite itmes!

    My son is a major fan or the gardening items that are offered seasonally. Every year he has the best garden in our neighborhood and we always say it is thanks to ALDI!

    My boyfriend is a vegan and I am vegetarian. We have been long time fans of Aldi and are excited to see all the new vegan friendly products including: freeze dried fruit, coconut oil, almond and soy milk,kale, cashews (to make “cheese”), hummus, and even some of the frozen meals like the Mediterranean penne, the produce is great and we love the higher end dark chocolate that has no animal products in it! Keep the great new things coming!

    I love the Aldi black bean burgers but they are usually sold out or so far back in the freezer you can’t get them. I think Aldi should have more of these and less of the other (not popular) veggie burgers.
