    Get the angus burger from the meat section. 2 per pack.
    Best burgers I've tasted in a long time!

    +1 for this.
    I used to also like the frozen burgers in the black box in Aldi (Specially Selected).
    They were Angus mince too, but I don't think they sell them anymore.
    They were beautiful.

    I think they're still available. Were a few weeks ago anyway.

    Aldi Specially Selected Jalfrezi Curry Sauce (with the spice cap on top).
    I have recommended the Madras here in the past and though it is lovely, the Jalfrezi is WAY nicer.

    It has more flavour, more heat (which is odd because Madras curries are usually hotter), thanks to the inclusion of sliced green chillies, and it just tastes like there's more herbs and spices in it.
    It reduced to a beautiful sauce and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Stock up!

    Absolute restaurant quality curry in 15 minutes, they're unbelievable tbh.

    I tried one and found it very bland but I am no expert on curries.

    I agree.
    Now and again I get a Karahi from the Bombay Pantry but these Aldi curry sauces beat them hands down for flavour.

    They wont burn the mouth off you alright but you can remedy that yourself, its more about the flavour, it is spot on, tastes like something a lot of work went into instead of out of a jar, theres no going back to Uncle Bens or Sharwoods for me anyway.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,157 ✭✭✭Zelda247


    Have to say I prefer the Bombay Kitchen ones as well.

    I recommend the Spanish hot chocolate, its the best one I have tried so far.

    Anyone know if they have it in stock at the minute? Is is part of the special buy range?

    This is it

    The McGrath's tea bags (the 160 box) are similar to Lyons tea bags, but a fraction of the price.

    Love their fillet/rib eye specially selected steaks, the garlic/herb marinaded chicken, the poppin' chicken from the freezer (rarely get it, but when I do, its lovely), they do some nice Rioja wines and some nice wines in general too.

    First time posting to this thread but use it for Aldi ideas!!

    I was in my Aldi last night and they have some of their Xmas cheeses back..................the goats cheese with cranberry is amazing!!! not ashamed to say I got a little excited when I seen it back in the fridges :)

    Also the Granola in the black box with cranberry is delicious and very filling......

    I like cranberry :)

    I have seen the Spanish Chocolate in Kerry Aldi

    We buy everything in aldi at this stage.

    We had two kids at the start of the recession and SV was costing us a fortune, over €100/w. Aldi, even now costs anywhere between €60 - €80 for a family of four. And that's no scrimping. I love how I can buy anything i want!

    Currently we are loving the dark chocolate digestives and their mature cheddar are best on market imo. The berries are incredible value too but you do have to pick your pack carefully. I've given up on the broccoli,it just goes instantly yellow the minute I get it home.

    The special select panettone with the hazelnut crust is fantastic. The nicest one I've found over the last few years. Bought a load last year as presents for people. Normally come in store in December.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,564 ✭✭✭✭whiskeyman


    Their rice krispies and coco pops are lovely... in fact, I remember seeing somewhere their coco pops are more chocolatey than coco pops themselves!!

    The Andara red wine, toro loco reserva and pata negra are all gorgeous.

    The choc or jam coconut swirls are to die for, 1.15 Dunnes sell worse ones for over 3 eur.

    They also had coconut chewy biscuity round things...don't know what they are, but they were only €1.99 for 8 and the branded version, Mrs Crinkles, are about €3-4.
    The Aldi ones are gorgeous.

    I picked up a stollen yesterday, because last year they were all gone by the middle of December. I also bought some of their Mountain Bars and opened one just for research purposes ;). They're like Toblerone, and every bit as nice.

    You will find the GF tart in the GF section along with the other GF baked goods. It is near the regular bread/biscuits. :)

    Despite all the Aldi hype , this loaf disappoints.
    It's too dense , stale on the two days I purchased, nasty aftertaste. Might make a decent flood defence wall tho! I'm gonna stick with McCambridges brown bread in the resealable bag
    Sorry Margaret!

    They're still available. They are some of the best burgers Ive gotten from a shop. The frozen mashed potato and curly fries is also quite good.

    If there's any left, I can highly recommend the sheepskin slippers they had in the special offers recently.

    Toasty warm and lovely and comfy :)
