Now comes Aldi and the last two weeks, strawberries were quite affordable. This week, strawberries are on sale for around $1 a pound and last week they were around $1.50 a container; this is roughly half the price of other stores in the area. Blueberries were also on sale this week and even though blackberries were not on sale, the price I saw for blackberries was only $1.29 per container. Similar sized containers for blackberries are usually around $4.00 in other stores. So no wonder that fruit is now frequently appearing on the menu in my house and is not limited to apples anymore.
Below is a quick dessert I mixed up that includes strawberries, blueberries and some raspberry yogurt (which only is 39 cents at Aldi).
