For the longest time, Trader Joe's has been our go-to spot for quick and easy meals, gourmet ingredients and unique snacks, all for a great price. But these days, there's a new store in town that no one can stop talking about: Aldi, the stripped-down European import that offers tasty food for less.
Aldi may be a no-frills shopping experience. You rent carts for a quarter (refunded at the end of your trip). You have to provide your own bags and bag your food yourself. The stores carry much less product than your average superstore and the hours are limited. The upshot? You get high-quality foods at a bargain price and limited-time offerings that come much cheaper than their counterparts at traditional stores.
Whether you're looking for a healthy meal that takes no time to prepare, an indulgent snack or an inexpensive staple, Aldi's got your back. Just remember to bring your bags.
Prices vary depending on your location.
