Gourmet Ice Cream. Way better than products that cost twice as much from other supermarkets. Cookies and Cream is the favourite, but also like the Caramel Honeycomb and the new Vanilla one.

The Cheezel type knockoffs are pretty good, and don't mind their soft drinks.

The veggies can definitely be a bit hit and miss. But even with the misses, as long as you make sure to pick the good ones out, they tend to be OK. Then again, veggies is something that heavily depends on the staff. Without proper rotation and sorting, any veggie section of any supermarket can look like shit very quickly.

I like the Aldi French Onion dip, but I tend to buy the Willow Farm dips now.

I have no idea what this is, but I am intrigued and feel like going to Aldi now. At least to grab some chippies. I can hear my housemate crunching away on some and its making me hungry.

Instant coffee.

Except with tea instead of coffee - brew GBFO pot of tea and freeze-dry it.

Honeycomb Bavarian ftw. I get a little upset when they don't have them, as it's the only dessert I really like

- wholemeal wraps

Smaller size and cheaper than coles / etc.

- Sundried tomato pasta bake sauce . cheaper and less greasy than the dolmios ( not a big fan of cheese )

- Cleaning products : multi purpose disinfectant ( good for kitchen beches but shit for anything that are stainless steel - leave streak marks ) , cleaning gloves , glass cleaner so on..

- The vegies & fruits can be hit and miss .

The fresh hamburger patties (cold section) are great. I also like the frozen lasagnes (reasonable quality, dirt cheap). The melting moments are delicious!

If they are anything like the doritos knock offs, or the thins copies - then they should be awesome

I got some barbecue flavoured chips from Aldi recently. They have a picture on the front of 2 steaks grilling on. Next to the steaks it says "serving suggestion"

Yeah I often get them if I'm in the mood for chips. They're great. Definitely not as good as their red rock equivalents but I'd definitely go them over equivalent priced Smiths.

I actually think they're better. But even if they were just equal or slightly lesser, they're still 200g packs vs. 175g packs and on top of that, ~$2 cheaper.
