I’m not sure if anybody has heard of this grocery chain, but a lot of people do not know about it. They offer food at discount prices (also accept food stamps if anyone needs them)
I’ve been shopping there for years and never thought anything, but now that I’m vegan it’s my go-to store!
They sell almond, soy, rice, and coconut milk really cheap. Some stores even carry soy ice cream and Boca products. All their make-up and beauty products are cruelty free. Also, they sell vegan Italian ice. There are so many staples at that store that are vegan I can’t even list them all!
I’m hoping more vegans become aware of this little store
@LittleLotte ahh I see I see. I just went to Aldi yesterday, before I saw your post and I stopped to look XD haha. Oh well, it’s not a big deal making your own hot cocoa mix is beyond simple, and sits better with me on an environmental scale(I had all the plastic/foil packets that store bought hot cocoa creates =/ )
my local aldi’s has had very little in the way of vegan alternatives. They only offer one type of milk alternative (full sugar vanilla soy milk), and that’s actually the only alternative product the have offered for the last 2 years. However, my last trip there, they had Boca burgers. So I remain hopeful.
I do get most of my produce there, as well as stir-fry mixes and bags of frozen berries.
I agree, I shop at Aldi because as a tattoo apprentice.. I don’t have a lot of disposable income and it’s fairly priced, they always have offers on different vegetables and fruit and they do some really lovely almond stuffed olives that I’m slightly addicted too.
@chenli You’d be surprised! Some of their foods are ‘accidentally’ vegan i.e. you probably wouldn’t expect them to be vegan until you check the ingredients label! I bought some ‘chocolate’ cereal, ‘cream’ biscuits and a large jar of powdered hot chocolate last time I visited (a few months ago).
@GSatiFan- I lived in Germany for a bit, and the Aldi there was definitely not as cool as the ones in the US, although, they sell a lot of stuff I wish the Aldis here would, like Knopers(I think that’s how you spell it) or this weird cereal that Kellogg’s is trying(and failing) to copy.
