* I received promotional consideration for this post, opinions and comments about ALDI are my own.
Have you heard of ALDI?
I hadn’t until I was invited recently to the ALDI store preview in Richmond, VA on Parham Road. I was immediately intrigued to find out more about their products, and I wondered if a store so small would have the essentials that we frequently buy in other grocery stores.
A walk through the aisles was interesting, informative, and yum! I was able to sample liveGfree Gluten Free Sea Salt Crackers, liveGfree Gluten Free Cookies, Specially Selected Brie Cheese, and Moser Roth Chocolates.
The food I tasted was delicious, high quality, and even better than my favorite brands. It was obvious; the store does not skimp on their ingredients and take pride in their products.
I wanted to find out if ALDI had all the essentials I usually buy for my household such as Coffee, Milk, Eggs, Meat and Poultry, Cheese, Fruits and Vegetables. I checked off each item on my mental list and I found them all in the store plus more.
The prices were astoundingly low:
12 oz bag of Barrisimo Ground Coffee for $3.99
1 gallon Friendly Farms milk for $2.49*
Goldenhen Grade A Large Eggs for $1.39*
Kirkwood Fresh Whole Chicken for $0.95 cents per pound
Specially Selected Cheeses from $1.79 to $1.99
If I could only list the whole store for you I would!
ALDI is known for high-quality grocery items at incredibly low prices, even organic food, gluten free products and diet foods that ALDI sells through their exclusive line of products: SimplyNature, liveGfree, and Fit & Active.
They also back up the quality of our purchases with the ALDI Double Guarantee: If for any reason we, their customers, are not 100 percent satisfied with a food product, ALDI will gladly replace the product and refund our money!

All set? Be in the know: Don’t forget to bring your shopping bags and a quarter.
ALDI keeps their prices low through eliminating overhead costs through smart practices like their shopping cart system: insert a quarter to release a cart and receive the quarter back when you return the cart, also customers are encouraged to bring their own shopping bags. Grocery bags are also available for purchase.
