ALDI Stores: Quality Products at Deep Discount??

Hi, Hounders,

With the holiday cooking season approaching, perhaps you have some opinions...?

I made my first visit to our local Aldi's (after an absense from Aldi's shopping since we lived in Europe many years ago) and was amazed at the low prices for staples compared to Kroger's.

I thought the prices were too good to be true, but maybe not? So I ask: What is your experience with the quality of your food purchases at Aldi.

I would like some comparisons especially for butter, eggs, bacon, cereal, crackers, spices, bottled sauces.

What would you specifically recommend and what would you stay away from?

Thanks so much.
