Supermarket shoppers have revealed the items they always buy from Aldi without fail each week, including chocolate, chicken and a dishwashing liquid hundreds are ‘in love’ with.
Australian woman Bronte started a thread on Facebook asking about the items that others prefer to buy from Aldi, and she was quickly inundated with close to 500 passionate responses.
‘I’m going to Aldi on Saturday and have never shopped there so have no idea what products to get,’ Bronte wrote.
‘Is there anything you prefer to get from Aldi? I’m usually a Woolies girl but want to try different products and see if it saves me money also.’
Suggestions included the $1.29 award-winning Di-San cleaning spray, Aldi’s butterfly chicken and the discount supermarket’s ‘delicious’ chocolate range.
