I've never had much problem with produce from my local Aldis. I've had a few bitter cucumbers, but those were out of season and bought in the middle of winter.

classykaren - As far as their lunchmeat goes, I think that their Roast Beef and the Rotisserie Style Chicken Breast are worth purchasing.

I buy frozen precooked chicken there. It certainly makes my life easier.

I remember asking a friend for his green bean casserole recipe (the classic if not ubiquitous one made with mushroom soup and Durkee fried onion), because it was so much better than average. Turns out the only difference was using Aldi brand mushroom soup and canned french-cut green beans.

Unfortunately most canned cream soups use wheat as a thickener (and I break out severely from wheat), but Aldi tomato and cream of mushroom soups are much better than Campbell's. The Aldi cream of mushroom was the only canned mushroom soup I would eat on it's own (and not as an ingredient of something else).

Dear Amandie,

Thanks for the input. I am going as soon as I can. That Dubliner cheese sounds great. I never even thought to look it up online-thanks.
