    Default Aldi's Peanut Oil --Heads Up

    Stopped in this morning and they had it for $4.49 a gallon. I've
    never seen it even close to that. The sign was hand written and said
    special purchase. I'm sure they won't last so stock up for your
    deep-frying. It's normally double that. I don't know if all the
    stores have it though. Just trying to pass the word along. They also
    had whole cashews for $9.99 for 34oz. Some of those will be going in
    the caramel corn we're going to be making this afternoon to fill
    Christmas tins. We stopped in for four dollars worth of peanuts and
    spent 65 bucks. Louise insisted we get a turkey as long as we had
    the oil. This **** is so typical when we shop together.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I'll keep my eyes peeled when I go tomorrow.
    Last week, Aldi's had a gallon of peanut oil for $9.99 (IIRC). I just
    might have to get some of those cashews, too <G>.

    So the "heads up" is actually about not shopping with your wife, then?

    That is why my wife and I do not shop together. We are both impulse
    shoppers and end up spending a *lot* more. Since I do most of the
    shopping I know what we need and I try not to get carried away.

    Yeah, we are going to Restaurant Depot (the wholesale place) this week to
    get stuff for our gin mill's xmas party, it always ends up being a pretty
    expensive visit even at their great prices...

    I will look at peanut oil at RD to see how the price compares, thanx for the
    "reminder"...

    Aldi's apparently has good stollen and other German holiday stuff this time
    of year, I may have to check them out too...

    And like you guys, I can't resist the blandishments of a cheap turkey...

    ;-)

    Yes. That's what they said the normal price was.

    I think what happens is we feed off each others impulses. One will
    see something and say: "Oh,,, we haven't had that in awhile." And
    then the other will say "well then let's get it." But I think a
    couple could have worse problems. <G>

    They've got lots of holiday stuff. All cheap. We got some cream
    filled wafer roll-up thingies that are very good. I've never liked
    Aldi's but I'm starting to like going there for certain things. Their
    corn syrup is a third of the price of Karo. I use a lot of that for
    caramel corn.

    >And like you guys, I can't resist the blandishments of a cheap turkey...


    I wasn't really that cheap but it ended up in our freezer anyway. <eg>

    Be careful. . .I've seen large (turkey fryer size) jugs of oil marked
    'peanut' oil and the deal was that it was 25% peanut oil and the rest was
    some other oil. That is what I have seen at the price you are quoting.
    Just saying. . .

    It was $9.99 in the November 15th "deals and specials." They must be
    closing them out for the new promo. And it's 100% peanut oil.

    That seems to be the common big box trick. They stack up a bunch of
    carboys or big jugs of oil proclaimed to be "PEANUT OIL" in large type
    and then somewhere in microtype it is noted that it is a blend of some
    other oil and peanut oil.

    You can get it at that price at Westlake Hardware in the barbecue/fryer area
    year round for 29 bucks, for a 3 gallon container.

    It's a little cheaper at restaurant supply, about 31 bucks for 35 pounds.

    I didn't pay the price on the link. As I said, I paid $4.49. I got a
    good deal and as was just trying to help if someone needed to stock up
    for the holidays.

    Some of those boxes were called "deep frying oil." That's not what
    this was.
