The Top 15 Reasons To Shop at ALDI

Many people have never shopped at ALDI for various different reasons. Sometimes it is fear of the unknown. We’ve brought you 15 reasons to shop at ALDI which will hopefully encourage you to give it a go and save money on your weekly shop.

1. ALDI Super six

ALDI Super 6 ALDI super six consists of six fruit and vegetable items that are massively reduced for the duration of a week. Each week the super six changes, but in any case you can get fruit and veg produce for as little as 29p. You will pick up huge savings on your regular supermarket on these items and you won’t miss out on the quality. ALDI fruit and veg are fresh and are sourced when they are in season.

2. Gluten Free Food

If you’re a coeliac then you’ll know how expensive it is to buy gluten free products. ALDI have a huge range of own branded gluten free food and drinks that are a fraction of the price of well known supermarkets. ALDI have a 17 page list on their website of the available food and their own brand LiveGFree.

3. Specialist Diets

ALDI have an enormous range of meat free products which can be expensive and hard to find at other supermarkets, again at really low prices. A full list of these products is available on their website.

If you filled your basket at ALDI with a  tin of kidney beans, chickpeas, butter beans and peas  it would cost you just £1.20 compared to £1.55 for supermarket value range, £2.20 for supermarket own brand, and £2.90 for the leading brand products. That’s a saving of over 50% on the leading brand which all adds up at the end of the shop. Don’t forget beans are great to fill out casseroles and stews to make your meat go further and save you even more money.
