Everything.
Their wine is very nice, red and rose, disco biscuits, frozen fish is brilliant, and very tasty (5 $sea bass for 8 quid)
Fruit and veg is good as well, very cheap and it lasts.

No, actual disco biscuits, like a squashed twix with smarties on top.

And yy, forgot mosher roth choc, or their new specially selected honeycomb crunch chocolate

I have been shopping in Aldi for 10 years now. It started when DH was made redundant and we simply couldn't afford to shop anywhere else.
Now, I won't shop anywhere else.
I buy all my fruit and veg there. Free-range whole chickens. Tinned stuff and I love the Colombian coffee. I buy washing up liquid, washing powder, fabric softener etc.
I buy all my christmas cards and wrapping paper etc.
They have some lovely fish, and the kids love the pizzas.
In fact, everything!
And lots of wine. DH is enjoying the Oranjeboom lager at the moment.

Olive oil, feta, chicken, cheap version of Baileys to put in trifle (not nice enough to drink but good soaked into chocolate cake!), dessert waffles (nice toasted with ice cream). I think about puddings far too much evidentally blush

hoummus, it is amazing.
Def the free range chickens, they are fromthe same supplier as the ones the nice poultry woman at the market sells but half the price in Aldi. Sorry nice poultry woman blush
Chocolate.
Oange juice.

Don't know what else really, I usd to know exactly what was best/cheapest/worth it between Aldi and Tesco as they are next to each other and I used to live around the corner. [sad git emotion]

Oh yes, the brioche, mmm, and teh gingerbread bics, all the baking actually.
I love their preprepared wedges as well, ideal for quick slinging in the oven without having to think about it and cheaper than a bag of potatoes from tesco.
The pesto is bloody good as well.
The fish is to die for though, all separate steaks etc so it's easy to get what you need and no more, and the whole fish is gorgeous.

The only thing I don't like is their orange juice as they only have stuff with bits in which clogs up the sippy cupsgrin

I can do a full shop here, so everything.

But family favourites are the 'twisted' caramel and chocolate puddings and the rectangular shaped fromage frais with fruit layer (they are seriously yummy)

Our dog likes the dried dog food (he won't eat Lidl's!!)
