For price, quantity, quality; there’s no point looking beyond ALDI for tortilla chips. These chips come in both “restaurant” and round styles. They taste good. They come in a 13 ounce bag. They’re $1.19. They taste slightly salty. They hold up to salsa.
They’re there every time I go. That’s the most important thing for me. I used to buy “tortilla” chips at Trader Joe’s. Trader Joe has a large variety of chips, some a little unusual. However, once I found a chip I liked, there was a high probability on my next visit to Trader Joe’s, the chip was no longer on the shelf. So now, at ALDI, the same chip is there (in the same location also) all the time. I may miss out on the variety, but it’s really nice to be able to repeatedly find something I can buy without going on a search and rescue mission.
The price is right also. With the price of branded tortilla chips seemingly tied to spot crude oil prices, it’s nice to find some realistic prices for things as simple as chips. After all with a bag of branded chips sometimes going for between $3 and $4, they are as expensive (or more) than a pound of beef. That’s not right especially when you start thinking that to produce that pound of beef, the cow eats at least 10 times the amount of corn that’s in the chips.
