Id just like to warn people about Aldi fruit.....they go mouldy extremely quickly :-(
Was not happy when i bought some blueberries a few weeks ago and two days after i got them home they were beginning to go mouldy, same has happened with peaches and plums. They dont have dates on the packaging so you dont know how old they are :cry:

I used to feel the same way and didn't buy fruit/veg from Aldi for years. However, over the last two months I've started buying fruit & veg from Aldi again and it lasts well and is of a good quality. The only problem I've had is with their Kiwi fruits.

Hmmmm, that's in direct breach of the Food Labelling Regulations for which they should be reported.

I know, same with most of LIDL fruit and veg these days.
bit worrying.
#12
I havent had any problems with Aldi fruit or veg.....they get eaten that quickin our house anyway lol!!
#13
Fruit & Veg that hasn't been tampered with doesn't last very long by the very nature of what it is. Makes you wonder why the stuff from the big supermarkets lasts for days and days!! Prefer my fruit and veg natural and used within a day or two/
#14
I wish grapes were part of this offer... I'm having cravings.
Good deal though. I've never had a problem with Aldi or Lidl's fruit & veg - I find it much better quality than Asda's, though we do tend to eat it within a few days of purchasing.

Why's that?
#15
Difficult to believe some of the nonsense (prejudice?) about Aldi fruit and veg here - my family buy their produce in preference to stuff from both ASDA and Tesco on both price and quality. It is labelled in accordance with the law and doesn't rot at any different rate from the offerings at other shops. We very rarely have to take stuff back.. And since I live in a relatively remote part of the UK, there's no way that the produce here gets to the shelves fresher than in the big cities.

Maybe you should check your fridge temperatures )or ask for preservatives in your food) if this really is your experience?

They are not generally bad, but the quality varies quite a bit. Some of it is really nice, some not so much. If you know your vegetables, you can usually tell.

In my experience there are 3 types of people who would make a comment like that.

1/ a 14yr old child

2/ a 35yr old man living with his mother

3/ someone trying to impress people on the internet hiding their very sad real life.

Usually after this if it is 3 they will reply explaining how they earn 100k a year yet still show interest in bargain basement threads from their posting history.

Which one are you? :thinking:

and just FYI people, we DO have date codes on the produce at ALDI but only our staff (and savvy customers) are aware of how to read it ;)

The reason for this is just so idiotic people don't just buy the longest date regardless of when they plan to use the product. And believe me, we are very strict on when stuff has to come off and how long produce can be on the shelf :)
#22
I agree with others, the Kiwi fruit are terrible and you do have to be a bit careful with other stuff. Some things are hard to judge in terms of quality, but most are obvious when they're ok.

I think Aldi have improved the quality recently, though be wary of potatoes as well as the Kiwis as the last lot I bought were quite bruised and all black inside.

That's strange reasoning,that customers are idiotic if they want to buy a long dated product,was that info in a memo from Head Office:roll:

There is nothing wrong with Aldi & lidl

What a bizarre statement. Surely anybody with any sense looks for the longest dates?
#26
I prefer to look in Aldi for fruit and veg over the main supermarkets which are way over priced. Within a 2 mile radius we have Aldi, Netto, Asda, Sainsburys and Morrisons and we buy fruit and veg in that order - Morrisons veg is the worst as it never lasts long, and I know loads of people who have had this experience (not at the same store either). Used to only really shop at Sainsburys but they have priced the veg ridiculously when you can get the same elsewhere half the price.

Nothing 'trampy' about shopping at cheap supermarkets - common sense if you want to spend your money on other things rather than just pay through the nose for the sake of it.

I agree 100% with your comments - their fruit is the worst for going bad really quickly, I have taken it back on a few occasions and you are particularly right about the cost of petrol you are using to take them back.

The best thing they do on offer is their pototoes, well worth the money when on offer. :)
#28
To be honest you can buy top priced fruit from Marks and Spencers and once it has left their air conditioned chilled premises it can start to deteriorate.
#29
Just to clarify, i wasn't implying that people who buy long dates are idiots, if you're doing a weekly shop you need to plan in advance i get it. I was saying that people who are going to consume the product the same day and yet still buy the longest date available are idiots and somewhat selfish. Apologies for not being clearer before
#30
Not showing best before dates on fruit and veg is the future... far too much gets thrown away by consumers that don't realise you can use fruit and veg after the date as long as it looks ok.

Educating consumers seems a better solution.

If something is dated today and the same item has a pack dated 2 days from now then it's not idiotic to get the longer date even if using it today. That way it'll be fresher. Why wouldn't you want the freshest possible for your money? That said I only really pay much attention to the date on short date things like milk or things bought for other people and then it's only a look at the first one I pick up to see if the date is reasonably far away. The selfish part in shopping I find is when something is reduced and you see someone with a whole trolley full of them leaving none for anyone else.

There's nothing really wrong with Aldi as a shop that I've seen other than their unreliable stock levels; things advertised but current stock gone and staff with no idea when, or if it'll ever come back in. These Super 6 deals are very good though.

If you work at Aldi though perhaps you could tell us how the date codes work on the fresh fruit. As long as you don't think we'll use it to further our idiocy.:p
#33
They have week and day? code, I think this week is week 23. Look on the packs and you will see 2302 etc
#34
Heat added , hats off to Aldi , most of the produce was grown in the UK as well .
The cabbage was excellent
#35
I once overheard a checkout assistant tell someone not to purchase the reduced chicken. She said she had priced it up earlier on and it had smelled o.k., but when she was putting it through the till she advised the customer not to buy it. Now, would any of the BIG 3 do that? I have purchased reduced items from Tesco before that I have had to throw away. Checkout assistants there couldn't give a s**t

You should do.:roll:
I've bought potatoes (very good Maris Pipers), tomatoes, bananas, apples, grapes and not had problems.
