Wow they really do differ by location when it comes to their selection. I have never seen lentils at any Aldi store I shop at. I'm so jealous! I love everything about Aldi. Their produce weekly deals are often phenomenal. I feel very fortunate because my store is one of the better ones. It's always super clean, fully stocked, has good quality produce and the employees are fantastic. So far this week I bought:
containter of brussel sprouts for $1.89
2 lb bag of carrots for 59 cents
romaine lettuce 89 cents
3 lb bag of onions for 59 cents
20 oz pack of roma tomatoes for 89 cents
10 oz pack mushrooms for 89 cents
17 oz bottle of balsamic vinegar for $1.99
eggplant for $1.59 each
also: canned tomatoes, hummus , hot sauce, various spices, canned black beans, kidney beans, and butter beans among other stuff I can't remember now.
You can't beat the prices and the fact that they have a decent selection of vegan items is a huge plus. Even their soymilk and almond milk (when available) is really good. A lot of their store brand items just happen to be "accidently vegan" and they occasionally will carry some well known namebrands for half the price of regular stores.
I'm sure I'll be back again this week since I go at least twice a week. I'm hoping that the next time they carry Amy's stuff as their "Special Buys of the week" they will include some vegan options. I'd love to find Amy's Roasted Pizza for $4-5 or less.
