For those of you unaware, Reddit – where we sourced many of these ideas – is a discussion website where people can talk about anything and everything: politics, TV shows, food and more. It’s one of the most-visited platforms every year, and as such, you can find just about anything your heart desires – including heated debate about what ALDI products you should be buying. We’ve compiled a list of ten items that seemed to make up the most popular answers.

Our friends at Central Alabama Weekend compiled this list of what to buy at ALDI. Let’s take a look:

What to buy at ALDI – Wine

One of ALDI’s most popular items is its large collection of wine and beer. While the beer maintains a higher price tag, many attest to being able to find cheap, quality wine at ALDI stores. One Reddit user summed up their argument in short: “Wine…enough said.” Their comment received a number of replies agreeing with the statement; a number lamented that they did not have ALDI stores close to them for the simple fact that wine costs so much elsewhere. It’s also worth noting that ALDI’s wine selection has won a number of awards year-over-year.

What to buy at ALDI – Eggs

Eggs are a mainstay of any kitchen, and ALDI knows this. Totally removing from the equation that they’ve got award-winning organic eggs on the menu, they’re also affordable. And when we’re talking about an item that’s got to be repeatedly bought, the savings add up over time. The Reddit user who made the recommendation – whose post had the most positive feedback – suggested eggs were one of the better deals at ALDI.

What to buy at ALDI – Chocolate

The same Reddit user, among many others, indicated that ALDI’s selection of chocolate may be their best offering. In fact, this comment was the most well-regarded of the feedback we came across. You can find their full selection of chocolate past this link, but some of the items that jump out at us include: coffee brownies, German chocolate cake, and chocolate toffee ice cream truffles. And I mean… It’s chocolate. How can you go wrong?

What to buy at ALDI – Cereal

If you’re saying you don’t love cereal, then you’re one of two things: wrong or a health nut. In either case, that’s fine, but you can go ahead and skip on to the next entry. With the wide array of off-brand cereals available to customers, ALDI makes shopping on a dime that much easier. Most of the flavors you find will be similar to their “original” counterparts, and will cost you a bit less. This was, like chocolate, one of the more popular pieces of feedback on Reddit.
