Divas’ Love: ALDI

Screen Shot 2013-01-05 at 15.11.15

I used to always shop in Sainsbury’s but I’ve recently moved to Oxfordshire and unfortunately in the part I have moved to, Tesco seems to have a monopoly. I literally can’t go into that shop without having a nervous breakdown because they don’t have something I need/want.

We have an ALDI just down the road from us and I’d heard before that it’s a great little supermarket, but I’d never ventured into one (mainly as I felt my street cred would plummet). Over the Christmas break though I thought ‘What the hell, I’ll just pop in a see what it’s like’.

I don’t really buy ready made food (partly because I’m a bit of a control freak and like to know what’s in the food I’m eating), but I do buy healthy snacks to get me through the day, and here are some of my favourites that ALDI have to offer:


Fruit slices: ALDI’s take on Go ahead slices, but a fraction of the price and also I think they taste nicer and are lower calorie.

Golden bakes: Again, these are similar to Go Ahead bars, but I prefer the flavours (blueberry in particular)

Rice cakes

Crisp breads

They also do a great range of face creams and some basic makeup (such as concealer similar to touché éclat), including this lovely Shimmering face cream, which smells of apricots and at £1.99 is an absolute bargain.

I used to spend at least £120/week on a small trolley of food in the larger supermarkets, but now I rarely spend over £60. With the money I save I could squeeze in another trip or perhaps treat myself to a nice bag. 🙂

  1. I said it before, I love ALDI stuff, so much cheaper, and some of the things are actually exactly like more expensive products just packaged differently. Really! They are made by the original company but the name and packaging is changed.
