Skip – Aldi Cereals
While Aldi does have a wide selection of cereal knock-offs, you’re better off buying the real thing. The taste and quality just aren’t the same, and according to Forbes: “You can often find better deals on name-brand cereals at your local store when combining coupons and sales.”
Skip – Aldi Soda
Aldi sells a selection of both name brand sodas and also Aldi varieties of the same favorite drinks. The knock-offs are quite disappointing, with mediocre flavor that just doesn’t hold up to the name brands. But don’t rush to grab the name brand options here either, make sure to check the price since it tends to fluctuate and can even be sold for the same price of other supermarkets.
