Aldi is renowned for it’s ridiculously well-priced and insanely popular weekly Special Buys (who doesn’t want to pick up a massage gun for just $89?) but the retail giant’s range of regular, everyday products also deserve their time to shine.
From coffee pods to frozen pizza and washing powder, many of the German supermarket chain’s grocery essentials are not only cheaper but — according to fans — better than their brand-name equivalents.
But exactly which products are shoppers raving about? Below, we’ve pulled together a list of the top-rated Aldi cult buys as reviewed by members of the ‘Aldi Mums’ Facebook group.
