This Grocery Chain's Produce Is Falling Out of Favor With Customers

Some shoppers claim it's cheap, but not that fresh and doesn't last for very long.

Most of the time when you're buying groceries you want a one-stop shop for everything you need, because who has time to go to multiple stores? Unfortunately, some ALDI shoppers are doing just that because one area of the store doesn't live up to their standards.

"I love you ALDI but I'm cheating on you," Reddit user @investgamer started a post recently, detailing their grapples with the apples and problems with the peaches at the low-cost chain. They then discussed that the strawberries, bagged kale, and other produce items are fresher at other grocery stores.

11 Items ALDI is Discontinuing Right Now

The produce section at ALDI is what you'd likely expect it to be—there are plenty of readily available fresh fruits and vegetables that are allegedly stocked daily. But other ALDI shoppers that commented on the Reddit thread agree that the produce items just don't hold up for very long.

Some compare the quick-to-perish produce at ALDI to higher-quality ones they find at other popular grocery stores, such as Costco.

Still, a few people disagree with this take, adding that the rate at which ALDI replenishes fresh produce is much quicker compared to other supermarkets.

Overall, though, people agree that sometimes shopping at ALDI is easier because the store is smaller and there are fewer options to choose from. But if there's another supermarket nearby, you may find some shoppers hitting up both.

No matter where you get your produce, there are some simple hacks you can follow to enjoy it for a little while longer. Check out the 30 Simple Tricks to Make Your Produce Last Longer!
