    Walmart tries to make us fat. The bag on the left is $3.99 at dollar general. The bag on the right is Walmart $3.48.

    $3.48 for enough to feed a cow, count me in Moooooo

      Looks like a party to me. I can't decide if I like the puffs or the crunchy better...... let you know after the party. LoL

          Finally found the flavor I loved, that they don't make anymore.

              I'll add this, if you're out of assembly grease & there's none in town & there's no mail delivery eat a bag of pork rinds. In less than 24 hours you'll have what you need.

                  I had to look that up, I had never heard of the store. They do not have any locations in my state or any of the surrounds..... except Kansas but they are on the farther end of Kansas from me

                  I wasn't impressed with them. They sell their name brands, have an odd buggy rental/return deal, and you have to bring your own bags. Their produce was pretty decent though.

                    I've been two them on at least two continents, maybe three

                    Funny thing, growing up they were all over the place, but when I popped across the border, there they were too but with a different logo (the logo you posted is what you would find in Germany)

                    Turns out there are actually two different chains, both called Aldi, but called aldi1 and aldi2 on paper

                    I guess the whole thing got started by two brothers who ended up having a disagreement about something (produce related, if I remember correctly)
                    After the disagreement they each took half of the company and went thier own way...the only outward difference being the logo

                    Ah yes...the quarter system
                    In Europe, this is very common
                    Not sure why they brought it with them
                    Same with the bags, most European supermarkets will sell you bags, but not give them to you for free

                    They do save thier boxes for you though

                    I took my wife out to eat.
                    I told the waiter "I'll have a steak rare."
                    He looks at me and says "aren't you worried about the mad cow?"
                    I said "Nah, she can order for herself."

                      We normally bring our own bags, but the buggy thing was just odd for me.

                      As an aside, may be urban legend..
                      I heard that skim milk was once a by product and difficult to dispose of in the sewers as it would bubble/backup

                      Also heard that kerosene(diesel?) was also a biproduct. Now hard to find and expensive

                      It was the other way around...gasoline was the unwanted byproduct. Nobody wanted it as all they wanted was the kerosene and fuel oil. Gasoline was considered too volatile to be useful.

                        They have a mechanism where to get a buggy, you have to pay a quarter. You get your quarter back when you return the buggy.
