ALDI, the popular German discount grocery store, has seen non-stop growth in the United States in the last several stores, and has been pushing to put even higher quality food items on the shelves of their U.S. stores. The company decided to poll their shoppers on what their favorite ALDI items were in ten different categories covering food and drinks, and has now released the results of the first-ever ALDI Fan Favorites list.
“We’re excited about the participation in the Fan Favorites poll,” said Chuck Youngstrom, president of ALDI. “At ALDI, we know our customers count on us to deliver great-tasting, high-quality foods at impossibly low prices, and we are happy to hear their favorites.”
