Betty Botter bought some better butter – from Aldi

13 May

Aldi's Organic Butter - more value than meets the eye*

I’ve decided that organic dairy is important for my family, yet at more than $5.00 per stick organic butter has become a luxury.

I’ve been trying to minimise my biscuit making (which J loves), and homemade baked goods in general are really expensive. A tray of baklava may cost me a second mortgage as well as a coronary.

So I was overjoyed to hear from my friend Sarah this week that Aldi have a growing range of organic foods.

Here’s a selection of some of the more exciting staples:

Butter (250g) – $2.69

Diced or Whole peeled tomatoes (400g) – $1.29

Organic, Fairtrade Chocolate (100g in dark or milk) – $1.99

Pasta Sauce (500g) – $2.69

Tomato Paste (140g) – $0.99

Spaghetti (500g) – $1.79

These are certified organic, and so much cheaper.

*If you look carefully, the butter even comes with a really helpful serving suggestion

    Ooo I adore Aldi… I think they are so much more inexpensive than other big stores, and because the range is fairly limited you don’t go crazy and buy loads of stuff you don’t need… I just, and I know this goes against the whole idea of it, but I really do wish they had someone to pack your groceries for you…

    I agree! I always get frazzled at the end trying pack the groceries in the bag that I’m determined not to buy next time because I’ll be more organised and bring one of my own. So much pressure!

    That’s it, it’s the pressure! And the packing! Pack them into the trolley, then onto the conveyor belt, then into the trolley again, then onto the packing shelf, then into the bags that you have paid for AGAIN because you forgot to bring ones from home, then into the car, and then into the cupboard! It drives me nutty!!

    But I really do love ALDI.

    How are those mushrooms going? My three are GROWING! I’ve no idea how big they are supposed to get though. How do we know when to pick them??

      Hehe 🙂

      My first few mushrooms may have been ready to pick by now if I hadn’t picked them early just to see what they tasted like – oops! (They were delicious though)

    Do you know if the Aldi Butter is from grass fed cows or are they soy grain fed?
