    That's disappointing, their water is BPA free and I've been planning on trying it.

    Anyone else had their water?

    I get my bottled water from Farm and Fleet (Nature's Crystal brand) or from Walmart (their president's choice or whatever their Sam's club line is). We actually like the Walmart water taste better, but Farm and Fleet is much cheaper, tons easier to get through (drive through pickup of online orders for the win!), and isn't a scumbag company.

    Well, it's more than .3 cents here it's at least twice the price but I won't fight you over it.
    Cheap is one thing. Quality is another. And starting having a better quality (even if it's visceral) to start with is a much better situation to be in.
    You could be right, but I've always thought that I was paying for fancy TV advertising and/or some General Mills CEO or other large company's boss. Because the ingredients are usually the same. Sort of like with medications.

    We all have a choice to make. If Aldis' store brands are of sufficient quality for you to con

    Some women are like that when it come to price points, myself included. My husband will walk into the store and look for what looks best--what's tastiest. My dad (rip) was that way. I try to find the deals.

    The question was asked, and I responded truthfully. It wasn't an incorrect answer. It was truthful. And the truth is, Aldis is substandard to me. YMNMV.
    I know, and I appreciate the honest reply. I'm a little nerdy about food storage. It's like a hobby I actually enjoy. So, had to ask.

    I find the produce doesn't keep long. The Stir Fry veggies are good, as well as the hazelnut creamer. The baked beans are good, as well as the pasta sauce. The cheese is good I can easily spend $100 on stuff I like.
