I love Aldi's. I used to denigrate it as being for "poor people" and lacking in quality. But I don't like spending a lot of money. I'm closer to being poor than rich. Many of their store brand products are excellent. I like the European products they have.

First of all, the tamales were really good. Second of all, I don't want to make them again.
