Aldi has come out from under the radar recently, and we’re not complaining. The quality of their products is exceptional, yet somehow they always manage to keep their prices under control.
What started as a small grocery chain in Essen, Germany, back in 1913, has expanded into the renowned grocer we know it as today, with over 10,000 locations in 18 countries (including over 400 Aldi-owned Trader Joe’s locations in the U.S.). It’s hard to decide where to shop these days, especially if you live in a big city without a car. Heaving all those heavy packets back from a Walmart miles away can be an all-day affair, and who has time for that? Trader Joe’s is affordable, but often it’s quite a schlep to get there. So Aldi is a great choice if you want the convenience of ordering online.
If you’re trying to make a conscious effort to cut your food budget, this is a great option for you too. The chain even seems to have caught on to the fact that a lot of people suffer from gluten intolerance this decade, so if you’re looking for more gluten-free options to chow on, this place is well stocked.
We’ve highlighted some of the best deals available from Aldi, along with a delicious recipe for each to help you put the grocer’s fantastic ingredients to good use.
