I was literally about to buy that tonight but just decided to stick with the Hommus 'cause I once tried their olive dip and thought it was disgusting.

How do you mean?

I almost exclusively buy from ALDI and make up almost all my meals from separate ingredients. From tuna casserole, to meat and three vege, to spaghetti bolognese, to chicken korma. All pretty decent if you ask me.

Prosciutto - Pretty sure I could be fed this daily and not get sick of it. Omnomnomnomnom.

Frozen Atlantic Salmon Fillets: Not usually a fan of frozen foods, especially fish, but this stuff is actually freaking tasty! I was actually shocked. It comes vacuum-sealed (like their steaks) and actually had seriously good flavour for frozen fish.

On the steak - that is actually pretty good too.

Others as already mentioned here, spinach & fetta dip - win. Yoghurt - win. Pesto - win.

Ooh, I forgot about them. They're also almost half the price of the ones in Safeway.

I just discovered these last week! Eight pieces of fish for $6.99. It's not the best fish in the world, but for the price it's great.

We buy the frozen Hoki fillets - about 2-3 meals for $9.99 - bit of flour and vegeta, cooked in the oven and it's simply amazing.

Try their bottled hotdogs/sausages/can't remember exactly what they're called - most other stuff has been covered... oh except their bread maybe, they do good bread now and much cheaper than helgas etc.

Yeah the mint ones are good, but give the berry ones a miss.

Something a little different, but we absolutely love these, are Aldi's meal replacement shakes. You can find them where all the beauty/health products are. We didn't need to lose any weight but they are great in summer with ice for breakfast when you're in a rush or when you're renovating and don't have a kitchen :P. I like the chocolate and strawberry, partner likes the coffee (I think the coffee tastes a little weird, but I don't like a lot of coffee flavours). Easily filled us up til lunch. They have vanilla as well which I didn't like..

They did bring out some extra flavours like banana and cookies and cream, but they were only out for a week, but the normal flavours are always there. They are also quite thick, but you can just water them down to your taste. Also make sure you shake them well

Use the cheap coffee machine most days. My favourite coffees are 6 and 8. Good and cheap. Doesn't compare to my brothers proper machine with fresh ground beans but it beats the pants off a cup of instant.

Been pretty impressed with everything I've bought from aldi so far. I don't like the look of the fresh vegies at my local stores though. They look a bit shit. Will have to try out their steaks and frozen fish as suggested.

The Qick Brew tea is pretty nice too.
