AN Aldi fan always finds great buys at the discount grocer but this week she shared some items under $5 you should avoid.
Sarah, who goes by Aldiallthetime on TikTok, shares with her more than 208,000 followers Aldi’s best deals and recipes.
This week, she highlighted in a video what to avoid at the discount chain.
Sarah is really not a fan of Aldi brand soda, Summit.
The generic brand, includes flavors GT Cola and Citrus Fruit.
“There’s something off about the soda, it’s just not good,” she said.
2. Alfredo sauce
Sarah has never been a fan of Aldi’s Alfredo Sauce.
She claimed the current version, Botticelli, replaced one even worse.
“The other alfredo was just so bad they don’t even sell it at my store anymore,” she said.

3. Hot dog and hamburger buns
Aldi’s L’oven Fresh hot dog and hamburger buns cannot measure up, according to Sarah.
Neither bun can hold it together long enough to be enjoyed.
“I’ve never cared for the hot dog or hamburger buns, they just fall apart,” she said.
Sarah saved perhaps her harshest criticism for Aldi’s generic cereal brands.
She pointed to Millville Brands’ Crispy Oats and Honey Crispy Oats which sell for $1.99 a box.
“This tastes like cardboard to me-not great,” she said.
Just because some of Aldi’s Huntington Home brand candles come in nice jars, do not expect a similarly pleasant scent, Sarah warned.
“Beware the candles that come in pretty jars,” Sarah said pointing to the Paradise Cliff and Cherry Blossom candles.
“Yes the jars are really nice but a lot of times the scent is just not there.”
Instead, Sarah suggested sticking with the less fancy looking candles, including Oakmoss Amber and Weekend Road Trip.
Meanwhile, Aldi shoppers are going wild for the retailer’s SpecialBuy program, which saves money on heating.
Also, an Aldi super shopper recently shared the exact day of the week to find deals on meat, fish and pantry food.
