Their cotton face pads are fab and much cheaper than other places
Their version of Total Greek yoghurt is nice and so is the moser Roth chocolate

I like their shampoo, frozen fruit is a good price, as is bread.

cornflakes, wraps, nuts, yoghurts, organic eggs, coconut oil (or any oils to be honest), chopped tomatoes, pasta, 5 min flavoured cous-cous pouches (roast veggies or sundried tomato ones) - love these, super convenient and only about 30p per packet, there's enough for two people in it!

Wine grin
Frozen tropical fruit for smoothies
Continental cheese and cured meats (very good)
Moser Roth chocolate
Frozen sweet potato fries <yum>
Fish and seafood - limited selection in my local one, but good quality
Lacura skincare - the Q10 serum and caviar night cream are fantastic

White choc chip cookies

I haven't ever had something from there that is bad. The products I buy again and again are the greek yoghurt in the round, flat tub, sweet potato falafels, ground coffee, pain au chocolat pack of 8, fishcakes (fridge),
Raspberry ice lollies, feta cheese, mojito juice drink from the fridge (better than the m&s one imo) and lots of the wines. Their cheapest basic prosecco is perfectly drinkable. I like their version of aperol and baileys too, you can't go wrong.

Their ketchup is gross, but most things are fine

I drink shop's own brand Gold coffee but Aldi was not to be recommended.

I went in today to do my shop and they have packet mixes for chicken casserole / chilli con carne / beef stew etc for 22p each - cant go wrong there

Love their organic range - meat is perfectly fine and cheap! Wet wipes and nappies are the best, better than all the main brands we found

Their alcohol selection is also the best value

Their version of vanish for stain removal is absolutely immense, haven’t met a stain it hasn’t shifted yet!

I buy value bake beans, and DH loves Aldi's version of value beans

SimonBridges Sat 21-Jul-18 17:33:25

Jelly beans !

Organic pino Grigio

ElspethFlashman Sat 21-Jul-18 17:36:04

Honestly most things are really good. Food and non food. There's a de-greaser in an orange bottle which is my new favourite thing. And their q10 night cream is great.

I really like Aldi.

The mango chutney used to be a bit vinegary but that was years ago, may be ok now

IggyAce Sat 21-Jul-18 17:48:50

The Chinese chicken stir fry meal kit is fab.
Oaties biscuits
Sweet popcorn
Luxury Coleslaw
Large tea cakes

CQCNamechange Love the organic Pino Grigio and Prosecco. Think the bottles are really nice too.

Their posh pizzas are excellent.
