ALDI REVIEWER was born in July 2016 after two Aldi shoppers discovered how hard it was to find information about Aldi products outside of Aldi’s own website. Many times we wondered if a product was any good, only to find that there was no one out there to review it other than a few obscure international message boards or the occasional post on a mom blog.
So we decided to make a review site of our own.
Our goal is simple: to provide a place where Aldi shoppers can get an independent take on Aldi products. We are not affiliated with or endorsed by Aldi or its subsidiaries — the opinions expressed on this site are those of the individual contributors only.
We encourage visitors to share their own opinions over the products in the appropriate comments section or by contacting us. Our only request is that you keep things polite and clean. We reserve the right to moderate comments that we feel violate the spirit of civility.
We use a fair amount of Aldi lingo on this site. (If you’ve never been to Aldi before, you might want to read our guide for first-time visitors.) In particular, this site uses a few “Aldi-isms.”
- Regular Buy refers to items that are on Aldi’s shelf all the time.
- Special Buy (or what Aldi calls their “ALDI Finds“) refers to limited stock items that rotate in and out of the Aldi shelf. Typically these only come in one shipment, and once they’re gone, they’re gone.
- We also use a third category, Seasonal Items, to refer to seasonal buys that Aldi rotates in for a few weeks or months at a time, especially around the winter (Christmas) holiday season. Unlike Special Buys, they seem to be replenished for the time they are in stores.
If if you think we’ve incorrectly categorized an item, let us know.
