Aldi's food name brand in disguise I think

I was watching something on the news about recalled ground turkey. When they said it was out of a Cargill plant. Packages under some names that included Fit and Active. Which is a Aldi brand. That tells me the major food providers will package some foods with the Aldi label. So Aldi's could be name brand foods in disguise. People will tell me Ewww. You eat generic food? But we're paying much less for it. Than at the regular grocery store.

I love Aldi, I do most of my shopping there with just a few things that go on sale for less at the other stores. I was impressed that there snack crackers do not have HFCS while the name brand ones do and their tortilla chips are low in salt. So nope, I have no problem buying my stuff there and saving a lot of money. I don't know if some of it is really made by the name brand companies, as long as it tastes OK and is healthy I don't worry about who makes it.

Yes, a lot of what Aldi sells is actually name brand. One of my friends was a buyer for them, so that's how I found out. They actually did a taste test of Aldi items vs. brand name items on one of our local stations a year or two back. Most of the items they sampled, people seemed to prefer the Aldi brand. Their chocolate is really good.
