    It is funny hearing about people being so excited to experience snow. Those of us in the midwest have been suffering through big snow after big snow week after week after week! It’s snowing where I am right now actually, and I’m beside myself lusting after spring. Anyway, I know this is a sponsored experience and post, but I’m really enjoying learning more about Aldi! And the blueberry lemon smoothie sounds amazing, I will have to try that as well.

      When I was in the security line at the airport there were two college-aged girls next to me discussing how they were excited to go on vacation so they could sit in the grass and not have to worry about wearing gloves or feeling chilled. The whole conversation made me smile. I think it’s all relative. 🙂

    Amazing experience! A quick question though, was that a whole lemon or just the juice for the Blueberry Lemon Smoothie? I have a tree full of lemons right now and need some good ideas 🙂

    What a great experience for you! I shop at Aldi nearly every week. So far, they have great prices on avocados!

    It’s really too bad Aldi doesn’t do more quality control in their stores. The Aldi where I lived in Charlotte (north of Charlotte, actually) was really dirty and grimy. And the Aldi near me now (I live about 60 minutes north of Chicago) is even worse- the fruit sitting on the shelves is half rotten.

    Looks like such a great opportunity! I’m surprised the group liked more Aldi stuff than National brands.

    The view outside your hotel room is beautiful!

    All that food looks so delicious! I’ve never been to an Aldi’s before, even though there’s one near me. I might go check it out.

    OMG! I grew up in Geneva, IL. I love that cute little town more than anything. I’m not sure if there could have been a nocer place to grow up.

    WOW! What an amazing experience! SO jealous 🙂 I think taste tests are so cool. It’s fun to see how price doesn’t always equal deliciousness, haha. Glad you had fun, learned lots and ate well!

    What a great experience! I LOVE aldi! Can’t beat their prices on many things!
    This summer at HLS we did a similar experience with Wild Harvest. It was so fun to see the behind the scenes and try some amazing food, too!

    You were just in my back yard! I love ALDI bunches. I’ve been shopping there for a long time and I’m glad to see more people jump on board.
