    Since the recipe for cauliflower bake I been searching cheese with truffles and until now haven't seen a cheddar with truffles so thought I would point it out just in case. Sells between $9 - $11 around 9 oz.

    My local Aldi had truffle cheddar for $4/7oz package recently.  Probably gone now, but that's why I buy two.

    There has been an Aldi's open not far from me for quite awhile.

    With all these great deals you guys keep posting I need to plan a shopping trip there soon.

    Mimi - It's an interesting place to shop.  First you put a quarter in the cart to use it - you get it back when you put it back and you bring your own bags.  You can buy bags there too, but hey - who doesn't have bags right?  They have a lot of proprietary brands - Millville cereal for instance is made by General Mills.  Produce is put out in the boxes and shelves are not "stocked" like regular grocery stores.  It's a very efficient operation with very few staff who do double duty stocking and register.  They just started taking credit cards here not sure about yours.  Otherwise it was cash, debit, or food stamp.  Check it out I save a lot of money there.

    We are almost exclusive aldi shoppers unless we need something extra special or seafood. The wines are some great deals much like trader joes.

    @Dagger  I would be if you put in a request at your local whole foods they will order some of the Grafton truffle cheddar.

    We pass a Aldi in PA, never stopped but now we will. Whole Foods has gotten lot of bad press, never been in one and I know of 1 on Long Island not close to me. Haven't been to Trader Joes in years, everything we boughg they stopped carrying.

    It's interesting that Aldi and Trader Joe's were owned by brothers who have since passed away, but the family still controls the two entities.

    Their chocolate is some of the cheapest good chocolate out there, IMO. The Choceur and the Moser Roth brands.

    Aldi often has great prices on seasonal produce, especially fruit--though sometimes it is not the best-looking seasonal produce. They also have pretty decent, flash- frozen, wild-caught salmon filets.

    Their chocolate is good--Moser Roth dark. It has a distinct, almost orange-y flavor underneath the chocolate, but I like it. 

    My very favorite thing there, though, is their frozen French-style, very slender green beans, for a fraction of what you pay even at TJ's. I also buy maple syrup there. Can't beat the price.

    Mine does not have wines, so I don't know how "their" labels compare to other inexpensive wines.

    Made it a point to drop by our Aldi a couple of days ago.

    Rented a cart but once I got inside could barely move it was so crowded.

    The square footage was about equal to a large convenience store (anyone familiar with Bucky's?) and that I suspect was the main problem.

    Gave a kid my cart to redeem the quarter and left.

    Will try again....
