Aldi Food Review - Instant Potato Mash

I would never normally buy this kind of thing but i had some Ikea meatballs in the freezer and they always serve them with instant mash potato and i thought it was a new product to review ...... it did feel weird to just add boiling water .... stir ..... wait ..... eat ..... we didn't mind it with the meat balls ...... I would put this on par with eating fast food so would approach it with that in mind ....... it costs $1.99 a packet!!!

Aldi Food Review - American Style Peanut Butter

I love peanut butter and I tried this the other day for the first time ....... it was smooth and not too dry .......... spread on well ....... it was tasty but a little too sweet for my liking ...... I normally get the salt and sugar free peanut butter (but sadly not from Aldi) ......... Aldi Mums rave about this peanut butter and it costs $2.29 a jar!!

Aldi Food Review - 1kg Hoki Skinless Fillets

We use to get Baramundi fillets delivered each week @ $35+ a kg ..... I decided to try these to save some money and we were super impressed ...... not too fishy and the kids happily eat them ...... we rub a bit of salt into the fish them roll them in flour (stops them from sticking to the pan and gives a nice coat) ....... they are sustainably fished and from New Zealand and only cost $11.99kg ........ AWESOME!!!

Aldi Food Review - Woodfired Vegetable Pizza

I think I have found my new favourite Aldi product ....... I tried this based on other Aldi Mum reviews and OMG it was amazing ....... it didn't look like much when i took it out of the packet and put it in the oven ...... but looks can bedecieving ...... I did add a bit of extra cheese and pepperoni but the base was beautiful ....... it is also all natural (I could read every ingredient on the back and knew what it was) and not too high it fat ...... ....... it costs $4.99 for the one pizza!!!

Aldi Food Review - Sweetend Dried Cranberries

I found these a little too sweet for me just to eat on their own but mixed in with some nuts or added to some baking ....... they are great ..... they are also really good for you so for $2.49 ...... thumbs up!!

This sunscreen is easy to disperse and put on kids that is why I like it ........ it does the job and costs $7.99 for the 200ml bottle!! We have sensitive skin and no reactions here either!!

Aldi Product Review - Instant Hand Sanitiser

This is not a product I would use very often but i can see that it is useful in certain circumstances ...... I bought it to take camping in the bush and it could be useful when kidlets are sick and you are trying to avoid getting it ....... it costs $3.99!!

Aldi Food Review - 99% Fruit Puree Spurtz

 This was one product my kids spat out after the first mouthful ...... both of them were not a fan .... I tasted it and was like really sweet puree baby food ........ I like the idea of them ....... have frozen the other ones to see if that makes a difference but haven't been game to try them yet ....... they cost $2.69 for a 4 pack!!

Aldi Food Review - Lemon Mineral Water

For 73 cents this mineral water is a total bargain ....... when i had the first glass i did feel like it was a bit sweet and was expecting it to have less sugar ........ it was still really tasty but i would like to see Aldi do some low sugar flavoured mineral waters.

Aldi Food Review - Macaroni and Cheese Pasta Side Dish

We tried this the other night for the first time as a side to our roast beef .......... I grated up mushrooms and zucchini and put it in there as well ........ it worked out well but next time i think i would add the vegies at the end and not the start as they made it a bit more watery ......... it costs 99cents ...... cheap cheap!!!

Aldi Food Review - Cheese Spread and Crackers

Both my kids like these so they are an easy snack to pop in your bag if they get hungry ........ I do prefer at home just cutting some cheese up and putting it on crackers as the soft dipping cheese does have lots of additivies ........ they cost $1.99 for a pack of 6

I had a man stop me in Aldi yesterday and tell me I had to buy this roast beef because it was so good and it just had to tell someone ........ it was hilarous so I thought ...... why not ...... we had it for dinner last night and he was right it was awesome ....... this one was a bit peppery so we had to cut the outside off for the kids but they still ate it ........ it costs $11.99 kg and was delicious and tender!!!
