I went to get some Cheese and Macaroni the other day and had a very hard time finding regular C&M. They had Scooby Doo, Organic, Sprials, Spongbob Squarepants, Wheat (yuck!) and a hundred other varities.

When did products start having so many different varities??!!

Our choices drive me nuts. We have so many choices now but it takes so much more time to shop. More time...more life sucked away.

The stuff from Aldi's is just as good and much cheaper.

I love the traditional flavor and never bother with the other stuff.

It's getting to the point that you really have to READ the packaging, otherwise you are going end up with something "low sodium" or "fat free" or "no added sugar" when you are just looking for the basic stuff.

I was in Ct Sept thru Dec and daughter had some products from Aldi's,she liked prices,reading the labels I would not buy them,so did not shop there.Cannot remember items.We stayed at our own home.Aldi's not in FL.
We just finished off box of Kraft "Cheesiest" bought as 6 pak from Walmart,excellent.Macaroni was fair sized and somewhat firm after cooking,some box mac is mushy and tiny.Just my opinion.Like it topped with tuna!!!

I know... I find this kind of thing incredibly annoying too.. with a lot of food items. Then again, these are usually the processed things I tend to avoid buying anyway. It's so incredibly easy to make mac & cheese at home yourself.... don't know anyone would bother to buy the commercial stuff! It's literally one of the simplest things to make!

All those "special" noodles are just to market to kids, and they have like half the amt of noodles in them too!
I like the aldi noodles too, the kids don't notice the difference. I wish I had a good home mac and cheese recipe. Have never been able to make it that well.

Lightbulb I don't know...

But what ever happened to the original Herbal Essence Shampoo or the wonderful original Aussie shampoo...that wonderful stuff? Who invented all these other 'hair types' anyway? If they'd stop messing around w/all this stuff they could keep their prices down...

Actually Aldi's is in several cities in FL (Tampa, Bunnell, Daytona Beach and Port Orange to name some), havent been to them but they're there (we have one in our town here in the northeast). Now I wish there was a Trader Joe's or Wegman's...
