Aldi Food Review - Slim and Trim Shake

I tried one of these for the first time last week ....... my intention was to see if i liked it for those days when i can't fit a proper lunch in because i am run off my feet so i could have this instead ....... with that in mind I was impressed with the flavour and how long i was full for after having this shake ....... it was sweet but i would prefer real sugar over artificial sugar .......... if i didn't have this i would probably end up eating something prepackaged even worse for me so I thought it was ok ......... for $2 it is also a super cheap on the go lunch option.

Aldi Food Review - Pepperoni Salami

We make a pepperoni pizza at least once a fortnight and use this ......... it's a little bit spicy so me and the hubby love it but the kidlets not so much .......... it costs $3.69 for 250 grams ....... I find all salami quite fatty so only ever eat it as a somtimes food but we do really like this one!!!

Aldi Food Review - Canola Spread

I took this photo at my parents house as they use this and like it .......... it is a great price at $1.49 for 1kg ............ I can't review it from personal experience but most of the reviews on the Aldi Mum facebook page only had good things to say!!!

Aldi Food Review - Calamari Rings

The verdict is ........ tasty!!! I like that all the ingredients are natural and it is REAL calamari rather than fish meat puree ..... they also come from New Zealand ............we cooked them in the oven and had them with some lemon and tartare sauce ........ definitely worth the $4.99!!!
