In my local shopping centre a large shop has recently become avaliable. Me and mum were getting excited saying it could be a big Next, Ravel, H&M or even a Matalan. But no, its none of those. Its going to be an Aldi


Our vacant shop became a TJ Hughes. Nothing chocolatey in there



Au contraire!  Our TJ's sells quite a lot of choc

Aldi chilled cabinet produce is of a very high standard, so my alter ego informs me.


So is Lidl's. Anyone who thinks they sell cheap rubbish is misinformed or prejudiced.



Some Lidl stuff is really good. I got some fresh filled pasta from Aldi's chiller cabinet so I'll be able to let you know if BK's alter ego is correct.

Who needs karma when you know you're great already?

But CC Aldi is hilarious! It's great fun to try and guess what the fake brands are supposed to be. As mentioned Dairyfine is fake Dairy Milk, and I spotted some very realistic looking fake Jaffa Cakes and Twixes. I also bought a bottle of Austins (fake Pimms).



I will go in there when it opens then.

Ours just had Haribo sweets. But it only just opened, maybe the chocolate will be stocked soon.

A bit like a cross between Wilkinson and TK Maxx but not as good.
