Aldi fans are upset after weekly grocery shopping nearly doubled – with shoppers turning to a cheaper alternative that caught them by surprise

REDDIT users who shop at Aldi have reportedly noticed a price increase at the international grocery store.

One shopper claimed he ended up paying $80 for weekly staples that would have normally cost him $50.

“I haven’t been to Aldi in two or three weeks, but I just got back and ended up paying $80 for seemingly small items, compared to my typical $50 a week for basic groceries,” wrote Reddit user u/Miloiii.

“Vegetable/cauliflower pizzas are now $7.99 down from $6.99 and a single soda on the checkout fridge was $4.95,” they noted in the thread.

Several people commented on noticing changes in grocery stores recently as well.

“Feels like every time I shop. If the price doesn’t go up, the quantity goes down. I’m learning to eat “easier,”” one person wrote.

Another said: “We all noticed. Literally the whole country has noticed.”

Other users chimed in about their cheaper alternatives.

“I went shopping at Kroger again. Aldi was way too expensive (sic),” said one person.

To double down on the love for Kroger, u/rabernet said, “I loved Kroger before I moved to a market that didn’t have Kroger.”

Wegman’s has proven to be another affordable favorite.

“I now basically do all my shopping at Wegmans, Aldi and Walmart for basically the same price as Wegmans,” says u/DatCarpet.

Wholesale BJs also came up for discussion.

u/Sidewalk_Cacti said: “I mostly shop at BJs and have noticed that they have been the longest resisters to price increases, at least in my area.”

Playing the comparison game, a user shopped with a family member and found that the items they got from Aldi were cheaper at Walmart.

Another account commented that when comparing Aldi, Walmart and Lidl, “Aldi was the most expensive, with the exception of just a few items. I ended up getting everything I needed from the other two.”

To remain an Aldi fan, u/myronboris8 mentioned that due to inflation, not only are the prices of Aldi items going up, but so is the quality.

They said they’d previously received low-end items that tasted “just a little different.”

Now they claim to get items that are “more similar to stuff that a whole foods might have, and it’s not just Clancy’s Cheesemelt and the like anymore”.

The Sun contacted Aldi on Tuesday for comment on customers’ concerns.
