Iím picky when it comes to brats and sausage products so I donít buy generics of those at Aldi or any store but other than that, I really like everything else.

Were the " enhanced" or injected.

After a couple of years of low profile presence
Aldi is making a strong move in our area.

2-3 Years ago they built a massive distribution center
in Frederick and now they must have 6-8 stores
in various stages of construction around Central Maryland.
These are going in prime locations where the previous stores
were in low traffic, dying out of the way sstrip centers.

Gonna have to start checking them out more often.

Lidl hasn't made an appearance up our way as of yet.

My Aldi carries two different Italian sausages. The Parkview brand and the Buona Beef brand. Buona Beef started in Berwyn, IL about a mile from my grandparents house. I grew up eating Buona sausages and I prefer the Parkview. I never would have thought I would prefer their brand. Aldi's has better flavor.

The flavor is great but I found their casing to be tough. It could have been chef error though

Take the sausage out of the casings make patties with it. Grill them up throw some mozzarella cheese, some marinara on top and put it on a bun. No casing to worry about that way. definitely a crowd pleaser in my house.

Aldi is amazing. We get 90% of our groceries from there. Donít be afraid to try anything from Aldi. They ainít the Aldi from 15 years ago. Theyíre owned by Trader Joeís now and the quality is fantastic. Better quality and better prices than anywhere.

Donít get Aldi frozen burgers in a box. We bought them while on vacation. They are cut with soy flour but you have to read the fine print to catch that. They taste like a weird beef cracker. Barely edible. Iím told their burgers in a plastic bag sleeve are good though.

I usually buy frozen angus patties at sams which are great.

I do at least 90% of my grocery shopping at ALDI. I am famous among my family and friends for my relentless pursuit of their ďsticker meatĒ, meat bearing its sell by date and thus marked down. I will Clean. Out. The. Meat. Case for a good sticker special, completely unashamedly, much to the embarrassment and dismay of my children. But until theyíre paying the grocery bill they can just shut the hell up.

Donít be afraid to try anything at ALDI as they have a double your money back guarantee. If you donít like someone nothing they will give you your money back AND replace the item with a similar one so you have nothing to lose in trying.

We buy the bagged hamburger patties for quick dinners or lunches during the summer. They also have good inexpensive hot dogs. And buns are under a buck so you can happily and easily feed all the neighborhood kids if you want.

We have a couple of butchers we get really great brats from however if Iím just looking for ďsimmer in beer and searĒ brats, I get the ALDI ones.
