Aldi Reviews

This post inaugurates a new category, Aldi Reviews. Thanks to lots of tips from Molly, encouragement from Emily, and interest from Holly (not to mention the fact that I don't need to carry cash anymore to pay there), I actually shopped at Aldi twice last week.

I didn't have a quarter and forgot bags, but we found some great bargains including fresh blueberries for $1.29/pint! When I think of it from time to time, I hope to post opinions on various Aldi-specific purchases and encourage you other Bear Country Kitchen writers to do the same. I'd love to do the same with Trader Joe's, but it's too far away from me to be on my regular shopping beat and I'm way closer than you others are.

Anyway, chips. I got these at the same time as regular Sun Chips thinking we'd do a side-by-side comparison. That didn't happen, but these chips can stand up on their own merits. They're lighter than Sun Chips and, in my opinion, taste exactly like Bugles. These have a multi-grain texture, but in a nice way. I'd definitely buy them again.

Those chips are one of the few things I've never purchased at Aldi. I'll have to try them! :)
