If you’re a fan of blogs classified as “healthy living,” you may have noticed an influx of posts as of late about the store Aldi.
I’ll admit, my first impressions of Aldi weren’t that great. There is one about 10 minutes from my parents’ house, but I don’t recall ever going there. For some reason, I always thought it was “dirty.” Also, my great aunt, who is a nun, shops there religiously (uh, pun not intended), and she is known for her, umm, frugalness.
However, after learning of the store’s relation to Trader Joe’s and reading positive reviews of the stores, as well as promises of change, I decided to check it out. What did I have to lose? My boyfriend, Tim, and I already go to three different places for food (Giant, Costco and the farmers market). What was one more? We’re all about getting the best bang for our buck, and we’re both relatively healthy eaters.
So, we set off to the Aldi in Camp Hill, and we were pleasantly surprised. The store was clean, and although small, it was tidy and everything was organized. Here’s what we thought.
