    Default Aldi pod coffee machines

    I'm thinking of getting the aldi pod machine because I mostly do my shopping there plus read mostly good reviews.

    Are there pods for hot choc and teas?
    Also what other brands and flavours fit the aldi machines?

    Is the milk frother necessary?

    TIA

    There are hot chocolate pods and I think possibly chai latte?
    The woolworths select pods & Gloria jeans pods both fit aldi machine too

    Yes there are hot chocolate and chai pods (I love both) and at one stage there was even different flavoured hot chocolates (mint, orange etc) but I'm not sure if they are still around?
    We have tried both the Gloria jeans and woolworths ones and they do fit but we prefer the taste of the aldi ones.
    A milk frother is a must if you want milk in your coffee.
    We love our machine.

    I love my Aldi machine. Milk frother not necessary. I had one but it died after about 2 months. I just heat my milk in microwave to add to the coffee, so much quicker and less to clean up.

    You can get chai latte, white choc, rich choc and light choc and so many coffee strengths. My fave id Milano No. 10.

    Ditto with above. Other brands work but nowhere near as nice as Aldis own pods. Love my machine and the milk frother a definite yes.

    I love our aldi pod machine. It's really easy to use and the coffee is very nice. The pods are not too expensive. I get around a 5 strength but dh has the 11... It's strong

    Love my Aldi frother - but we've been through two of those and two machines (we got our first when they first came out and there was an issue with water leaking).

    Def great value and really, you can go wrong for the price!

    I think the coffee is nice but the hot choc and chai way too sweet and not as good as powder mixes you get from the supermarkets.
    I don't have a milk frother so will sometimes just heat up milk and use my stick blender to froth it up.

    I love mine. There are lots of coffees including decaf and a big range of flavoured hot choc. I personally dont use the frother but my DB does. We have had ours for over 2yrs and its still perfect
