As you can see, Aldi gave us a slightly better bang for our buck on these taste test snacks.

Lidl and Aldi both have apps you can download to help with your shopping.

Aldi’s app is a lot like visiting the website: You get info on weekly deals and have the ability to create a shopping list.

The MyLidl app shows you coupons and special offers based on your preferred store location. It also has a recipe section and, like the Aldi app, lets you make a grocery list.
