  1. That’s supposed to be a knockoff of a Yeti cooler; Yeti’s are incredibly insanely expensive, so even the “expensive” Aldi one should be a good buy if it’s performance is comparable to the name brand. (I haven’t used either so I can’t say.)

    • You’re right, and at one point this post actually mentioned that in the writing. (We were at a farm supply store the week this post came out and saw a comparable Yeti there for $200.) Because of a server issue we had to revert back to a pre-edit of that post and forgot to re-update it. I fixed it.
