Sushi at $0.11 / piece! Why I love Aldi!

December 11th, 2007 at 06:04 pm

I had to drive 30 miles each way to a Doctor's appointment today- ahh, the joys of small town life!

On a positive note, the doctor was in the same town as the Aldi Supermarket, so of course I couldn't help but take a gander ...and drop $60.

About $20 of the bill has spent on nuts to make spiced & salted nuts as gifts for the Holidays. Nuts aren't something I buy regularly, so I'm not certain the Aldi price was necessarily better than the grocery store, but I figured there was a good chance.

Anyone care to enlighten me?

16 oz Walnut meats: $3.99
16 oz Sea Salt Cashews: $3.99
16 oz Shelled walnut pieces: $2.69
6 oz Pecan halves: $2.69
8 oz Raw Almonds: $1.99

My most exciting purchase were 5 of these frozen 9-piece Sushi ensembles:



They caught my eye during my last visit, but were priced at $5.99 / box! However, today they were on sale for $0.99! I guess Sushi isn't popular with the rural clientèle! If I had room in the freezer, I would have bought more. I figured they would be a great alternative for days when I don't have leftovers for lunch or ever as an appetizer for dinner.

    I love Aldi too, but have gotten away from shopping there, lured by $10 off deals at another grocery store. I will have to start shopping there again. Especially for the produce.

    I LOVE SUSHI!

    It's one of those things I'm going to have to learn how to make some day.

    Hmmm..must be a regional thing, I have looked at Aldi but the Safeway store I shop at is still cheaper. Probably because I only buy loss leaders and Aldi doesn't have any sales like that in my area.

    As to your question about nut prices, those are about normal for nuts that aren't on sale in my area.
