    Yes my kids love those choc chip cookies. Actually they're eating some right now lol.
    I buy the same things at aldi and it saves me heaps of money. I get dried lasagne sheets, passata, olive oil, canola oil, jasmine rice, diced tomatoes, tinned pineapple, shortcut spagetti, weetbix, rice bubbles, baby wipes, fruit juice, meat pies, milk, plastic cheese, grated cheese, cheese block (we love cheese lol), butter tub, choc yogo things, raisin breat, free range eggs, bread, laundry soaker, even mince meat and chicken thighs/breasts. Their sausages are ok too. Sometimes fruit and veg depending on what it looks like. But often its much cheaper per kilo. I buy heaps of stuff there. All good quality and tasty. I dont buy the 'specials' advertised though but Ive heard good things about them. Its worth making a trip there in my household.

    A few other bargains I got yesterday:

    Organic tinned tomatoes - 99c
    Danone Greek style blueberry yoghurt 4pk - $3.49
    Baby wipes (thick) 80pk - $2.49
    1kg pink lady apples, great quality - $1.99 (my aldi has better quality fruit and veg than woolworths and my local fruit and veg)
    Button mushrooms 500g - $2.99
    Multigrain bread (softer and better than home brand) - $1.49
    plain flour 1kg - 79c
    Cheese stick 240g - $3.99
    Premium nut bars 4pk - $3.29
    Snack pack two fruits (4 pack) - $2.49

    Bulk mince (less fatty than my local butcher) - $5.99/kg
    Neve sav blanc - $5.99
    Full cream milk 3lt - $2.89

    Compared to my local Safeway, aldi can't be beat!!

    Maybe I'm lucky but I can't find fresher fruit or veg, at a great price near me, than my local aldi.

    I buy block cheese and kids swim nappies from Aldi. Also tampons back in the day when I wasn't pregnant or breastfeeding.

    Things I buy from Aldi which are much cheaper than my local Coles:

    Capsicum
    Broccoli
    Brushed potatos
    Sweet potato
    Bananas
    Frozen blueberries (similar price but much better quality)
    Organic chicken
    Mince
    Roasts - pork/beef/silverside
    Cheese - Philly and cheese sticks
    Organic milk
    Organic wholemeal pasta
    Olive oil spread
    Microwaveable brown rice
    Olive oil
    Rye bread - tastes way better than Helgas and cheaper

    I think it definitely contributes that you don't have as much variety. Also what socio-demographic your Coles/woolies is. Mine are complete rip offs
