Occasionally we shop at Aldi. Most of their canned and frozen stuff is good, bagged salads good, most fresh fruits and vegetables lousy. Milk is usually closer to the sell-by date than other stores, and their selection is pretty limited.
I really like cheddar cheese, but I'm not at all picky about it--Store brand, major brand or gourmet are all about the same to me. Except Happy Farms. one of Aldi's many house brands. I had to check the ingredients--I was convinced they were using candle wax as a filler.
Apparently not. They managed to get that nasty texture and lack of taste completely naturally. We also had a block of Colby-Jack that was distressingly similar.
