Aldi Food Review - Sunnyvale Sunflower Margarine

I just bought this to try as something different from usual ..... I didn't mind the flavour of it on my toast in the mornings so that is a plus ...... I am more of an olive spread kind of girl but for $1.39 I can't complain!!

Aldi Food Review - Organic Honey

This is very tasty honey ........ both of my kidlets love it but why wouldn't they it's sugar!!! I try and buy organic when I can and for $4.99 this is a good price for Organic Honey!!!

Aldi Product Review - Prince Sport Men's Antiperspirant Deodorant

A few years ago I bought some men's deodorant for hubby from Aldi and he hated it ....... I thought I would try again with this as they had changed it and he likes this one ...... he is quite picky so I assume this one must be alright if he likes it ..... it costs $3.99!!

Aldi Product Review - Antibacterial Wipes

I am not a massive product user as I don't mind my kids getting dirty however every time one of the kidlets get sick we all always get it ..... I bought these wipes and the hand sanitizer to use just when the kids get sick ...... to my surprise using these wipes and the hand sanitizer I have managed to stop the rest of the family getting sick the last 3 times different kids have had vomiting ........ and they only cost around $3!!!

Aldi Food Review - Bran and Sultanas

These taste just as good as the real thing and there are lots and lots of juicy sultanas in every packet ..... worth the switch I think and for $3.99 great price!!

Aldi Food Review - Jelly Beans

These are super tasty little beans .... a "sometimes food" in our house but when we are after a sweet little treat these hit the spot ..... they only cost $1.99 a packet!!

Aldi Food Review - Christmas Chocolate Shortbread

These are a "sometimes food" .... lol ...... I can feel the wobble getting wobblier just looking at them!!! I bought them to share of course :)

Aldi Product Review - Ombra Sensitive Sunscreen

We are at the beach at the moment and hubby and I have been using this and it has been great (hubby is a ginger so had fair skin) ...... it is quite thick to put on but it doesn't leave a greasy coat on your skin ...... we use the lacura pump kids sunscreen on the kids which is great but would happily use this if I needed to ......... it costs $4.99!!!

Aldi Product Review - Trimat Sensitive Washing Powder

I have used one box of this and I suffer from excema ..... I am pretty sure it was fine ..... I was a bit itchy but I always am and I think it was a body wash I had changed ....... it costs $5.99 and I did notice at times it hasn't fully dissolved in my front loader so I tend to use less not more!!

Aldi Food Review - Christmas Mince Pies

I'm not much of a mince pie person so I gave these to a friend of mine who loves them to try and she said she prefers them over the cheaper ones at Aldi as they crust is thicker and crunchier and the filling isn't as sweet!!!

Aldi Product Review - Effervescent Vitamin Tablets

 I think these are like a berocca equivalent ...... this tropical flavour is delicious ........ at the moment I am having one of these every morning because it does make me feel like I have a bit more energy (even if it's just psychological ... lol) .... they cost $4.99 for 15 tablets .... my one criticism is they are made with fake sugar and I would prefer real as fake is really bad for you!!!

Aldi Food Review - Lite Coconut Cream

This is one product I have been buying from Aldi for years ..... it is on top of the freezers at my Aldi just before I get to the checkout near the bread but I do know Aldis can be set out a little different ...... we have always been happy with coconut cream and for 85cents who can complain!!

Aldi Food Review - Choc Peanut Munchers

I can't stop eating these when I start very moreish ..... they cost $2.99 for the bag but I do wish they sold them in a smaller bag because I end up eating them all in a day or two and it is the equivalent to 2 blocks of chocolate which i could never eat in a day or two ..... very yummy!!!!

Aldi Food Review - Honey Roast Ham

This was a tasty ham ....... we used it to add to a pizza and the kids were a big fan ...... I like that it comes in two separate sections so it lasts longer in the fridge ............ it costs $3.99 for 200grams!!

Aldi Product Review - One a Day Multivitamins

I have been taking these just as an experiment to see if I have any more energy .... they cost $5.99 for 100 tablets which is pretty cheap ....... I do think I prefer the Aldi berrocca ..... after having a glass of that on days I feel flat I do feel a bit better .... I think!!

Aldi Food Review - Original Muesli Bars

Hubby takes these for his lunch and likes them ....... I think they're pretty nice too but do have a strong cinnamon flavour ........ I also like them because they are not too sticky and so don't stick to your teeth (which the dentist said muesli bars were really bad for) .... they cost $3.69!!!
