    Went to Aldi last night to buy some of the bakeware, haven't seen the place that crazy for a while. Guy infront of me in the line, bought 6 of the bundt pans!

    Also, I have the Aldi coffee machine. I only use the 1 type of cup, use the same amount of milk (has measuring lines on the inside for latte/long black etc). Sometimes the machine will fill the cup right near the top, and sometimes it'll do it 3/4 of the way. I always press the full cup button (actually placed tape over the half cup cos my MIL kept pressing the wrong one)

    Anyone know why this would be?

    Lol, I have a coles pod machine (Aldi one died a while ago). Has 'short' and 'long' buttons. Worked normally for a while now they are switched :)

    Does it have a removable spout where the coffee comes out? Could be a bit clogged.

    Not sure if they've always been stocking it, but just discovered they sell brioche rolls and loafs. Pretty good stuff, made French toast with the bread

    The brioche buns are amazing. Turns a home made burger into something better than most burger joints

    Bloody oath it does. Even those 6 pack hamburger rolls they have are awesome too. Best rolls I've bought anywhere, they don't get that yuck soild/crumbly texture after going in the fridge either. Add the hamburger patties, oh yea.

    Best home made burgers I've ever made, no need to go out to any shops.

    I use either the brioche or hamburger buns.
    Vine tomato. The aldi ones are so damn juicy.
    Hamburger patties that I pre-flatten
    Cheese slices, the singles type ones.
    ETA bbq sauce. Best bbq sauce ever. Yep, the maraca bottle. :)
    Pineapple ring
    Fried egg.

    Best burger ever. :) So fucking good no burger joint beats it.

    Just to add to my previous cat approval, my dog's tried the tinned dog food and likes it. You'd expect it to look and smell awful because it's cheap, but it looks quite nice. Aldi's now my "go to" for the furry ones' dinners. (and the chocolate:tongue:)

    Mushroom and truffle triangolos pasta. Amazing with just a dash of olive oil and green beans or whatever when serving. No overpowering sauce required.

    Yeah both that and it's partner Spinach and Feta, are awesome. We have the later with a mild creamy tomato sauce with fresh rosemary (as you say, nothing over powering) and it's really good..

    And i've just spent some time in Italy, so many things are off my 'good list' (at least till I 're-climatize'), but this is staying on there!

    i might give that at try next time, sounds really tasty.

    Also their chunky gourmet angus beef pies are worth the money in my books.

    I bought some of that nut/covered nut mix today (labelled "festive mix") It's quite nice, the bits and bobs in it are nice and the nuts fresh. :thumbup:

    Lol. You make a comment on a public forum saying you wont shop somewhere and then rudely tell someone to mind their own business.

    The name is tablets.

    Nothing works as well as fairy platinum on super dirty dishes and cutlery but the Aldi ones are fine for everyday use.

    Return them if they aren't up to your standard.

    For some reason my Asko doesn't like the new finish tablets so I've gone back to Fairy. It doesn't dissolve properly unless I use the Pots cycle.

    I think the dishwasher model has a much larger bearing on how clean your dishes are (with the exception of the the finish tablets I have.
