actually yes. worked with a few ladies with airs and graces that confided they switched from waitrose to aldi for most stuff and particularly smug that guests (or competitors, as it seemed to be :)) loved their food.

May depend on where you live, but the waitrose set, who refuse to slum it in tesco or Sainsbury, are quite happy in Aldi

ALDI have been moving upmarket for a while now and, more importantly, are number one supermarket in the UK for customer satisfaction, having moved ahead of M&S and Waitrose.

I will be buying some then, thanks!!

Possibly - but trolls who contribute nothing to the site are asking for something 'a little harsh'.

On a broader front, people who worry about the social status of the brands they buy deserve to be mugged. I buy across all the supermarkets based on best value for decent stuff and Aldi probably wins that. M&S and Waitrose do sell some good stuff but much of their ranges is no better than others' and is a good bit more expensive (sometimes criminally so). I'm fortunate to have all the big names within a 3 miles radius.

Aldi's 'Specially Selected' range is up there with the best at Tesco/Sainsury's prices.

Doesn't specially selected just mean more fat and more sugar, so therefore tastier?

Tried these a while back when they first came out. Ok, but wouldn't make me want to buy them again. Just potted dog paste in a fancy labelled jar.

Yes, it's not always easy to know who to believe, either. Had a brilliant meal at The Plough in Bolhurst the other day which reminded me how much I had enjoyed Armagnac in the past. I checked for Janneau Armagnac, which I have enjoyed in the past, at mysupermarket.com and was informed that the cheapest place was ASDA at £16, whereas Waitrose was charging more than £22 for the same thing. Went to Morrison's to check because we don't have a big ASDA anywhere near us and I vaguely remembered hearing that Morrison's had an offer on it a couple of weeks back, and found it there for £15. Big difference between £15 and £22+!

Few more years of this trend and who knows, they might even clean up pallets and empty boxes I trip over each time I visit one of their stores. Now that's what I call classy!

Im afraid the Waitrose customers are definately of a higher class than Aldi. Aldi are mainly open in the less fortunate areas and shoppers are mainly low income such as single parents or the elderly, read the other week that a highly regarded area complained about the possibility of an Aldi opening and called for other supermarkets to bid, it ended up being a sainsburys. Aldi is a budget store for people on a budget, some of the produce is fine for the price but lets not lose our grip on reality.

ah yes, you're talking the difference between it being put in plain sight vs not minding popping in, as long as it's away from prying eyes. I agree that generally the shoppers are in a certain income bracket, but in reply to the question about 'posh people' (which is a rather nebulous term) I relayed personal experience of a certain type you wouldn't expect, who loved shopping there. Generally, everyone loves a bargain! I also was constantly asked by the same types, "if you're popping in, would you just mind..." and it was generally certain meats, cakes or biscuits.

You probably think Skodas are still rear engined, communist, rubbish cars too. The world is changing, keep up or get left behind!

Personally I don't have a problem with snobs who want to pay more at Waitrose, but this site is theoretically supposed to be about saving money, and as far as I'm concerned this is a good deal.

The world is changing but not everyone is on a budget. The recession is over, people aren't in the situation they were a few years ago. Aldi is fine if you are on a budget and its main customer base is low income, this is well known but you seem to have a real issue with this fact. Many of the big supermarkets offer similar value since a price war started and in my opinion better quality that is all that i am saying. If the rest of the shoppers at Aldi are as rude as you then this is my point proven.

You clearly still don't get it do you. Aldi is not just for 'those on a budget' - which is why its rapidly growing customer base includes plenty of people like me who have money to spend but like to get value - a good reason for coming onto this site! My shopping today was a mix of Tesco, Waitrose and Aldi (wanted to try Aldi's marinated ostrich steaks - not cheap but their beef steaks are the best out there).

I think a good few people would disagree with your assertion that "the recession is over" too (it may be to economists but many people are still financially challenged as a result of it). Is everyone with a different view of the world to yours 'rude'?

"jase99 has no activity ." Try posting something and let's see whether HUKD members agree with your view of what makes a deal.

That's a great theory but unfortunately you are wrong. The reason that ALDI have moved ahead of Waitrose and M&S in customer satisafction, and are now number one, is precisely because those that have been brave enough to overcome their snobbery and try ALDI products have actually found them to be better quality than what the big four are offering, despite being significantly cheaper.

Don't make the mistake of confusing ALDI with LIDL, I know that they have many similarities but ALDI are much better, which is proven by the customer satisfaction rankings.

How does that prove anything? Maybe you're implying that snobby people aren't rude, that ordinary people without pretensions are the only people that are rude, but that's obviously ludicrous. Perhaps you could clarify, because your comment doesn't make much sense to me.

Also, as far as I'm concerned, the fact that somebody hasn't yet posted a deal doesn't stop them from making valid points in discussing the deals that are posted.

Not everyone has the same views as you we are all entitled to our own opinions. Aldi is definitely nothing near the quality of Waitrose or M&S. I have tried several Aldi products and the quality was suitable for the price I paid but no better like is being made out on here, one example is smoked mackerel it was full of bones at Aldi but M&S was much better quality with no bones.
I have no problem with Aldi it is ok for people on a budget, the problem I have is with people like you and Besford that for some reason are trying to delude people with false information like the ridiculous comments comparing Aldi to Waitrose and M&S.

Rude is being discourteous or impolite, especially in a deliberate way. The Aldi shoppers on this thread are clearly rude and if this is anything to go by then this gives a poor image of its customers.

Original Poster

So what I don't understand is why - if we are "trying to delude people with false information" - ALDI have moved ahead of both Waitrose and M&S in customer satisfaction, and are now in the number one position in the UK. There are two possible elements that seem relevant to me:

1. Perhaps you are wrong.

2. There are definitely some people that are prepared to pay more to shop with similarly snooty people, that is their choice and it is their money, but most of us (especially HUKD members) dislike and resent Waitrose charging more than £22 for a bottle of Janneau Armagnac, for example, when we can buy it for £15 at Morrison's and £16 at ASDA. That price difference suggests to me that somebody is taking the pee.
