    I just discovered Aldi, I went in when it was first opened and I made a bad mistake I left because I didn’t know anything about the brands. But I now know the history and it is very true you believe in
    giving a good product at a very reasonable price. I had to read the history to understand how to
    get a basket. But what a great idea. Not overloaded with a store full of managers that can’t seem to
    order the product you want. And that means we save money. Your fruit and vegetables are wonderful.
    Glad I found my way back I won’t be going away this time.

    I love Aldi too. I’m always surprised when I get my total, and in a good way. 🙂 I believe they now take a wider number of ways to pay. Do they take checks, or charge cards?

      Hi Ella. ALDI doesn’t accept checks at this time. But we now take Visa, MasterCard Discover & American Express plus debit cards and cash!

    I love being able to buy good quality groceries for less money. The fresh produce is always incredible! The canned and packaged foods are better that name brands. I love that Aldi stores are not so big that I get exhausted by shopping. The fresh flowers and plants are a bonus to brighten any day. Now if they could just open a store near me. Currently I drive 10-25 miles to get to an Aldi and try to combine the drive with other chores needed in whatever direction.

    I am very lucky to have two Aldi’s where I live. Your produce is always fresh and wonderful. I am happy you started to carry the black angus beef,I got 2 pkgs. of the stew meat and made a big pot of homemade vegetable soup, the beef was so tasty and tender it made the soup.Your bake goods and baking supplies are excellent. In the fall and winter I do alot of baking and your variety of baking supplies is always well stocked and the prices are very reasonably. I agree with the previous letter that the total is lower then what I expect when I checkout. Thank you for a wonderful grocery store

    Thank you for theses recipes. Really would love to hear from people who have tried some of them and rated them. I am not a cook so this would be helpful to me. I love Aldi’s and have been a long time shopper. They just keep getting better. Only thing is that you have to use their veggies quickly because they do not last very long in my experience.
