Mama Cozzis Tavern Style Pizza Review – An Aldi Product

“Mama Cozzi” is Aldi’s brand name for pizzas and related products. They come in a very wide variety of styles, both frozen and take and bake, and are value-priced like most all of Aldi’s products.  I’ve reviewed quite a few of them in the past, read some of them here. I’m a pizza snob, but […]

Lunch Mate Cooked Ham Review – An Aldi Branded Product

I have reviewed quite a few products found at Aldi, a global grocery retailer that focuses on value-priced items. They are able to achieve lower costs by largely staying away from big brand names, and instead, creating their own brands and contracting the manufacture and packaging of them to quality co-packers and producers. This product […]

Mama Cozzi’s French Bread Pizza Review – An Aldi Product

Another Aldi product this week, actually did this one some time back, didn’t write it up. Mama Cozzi’s is the brand name the Aldi grocery chain has cooked up for their frozen and fresh (take and bake) pizzas. I’ve tried a lot of them, including the one I wrote about directly below, and a “Mega […]

Appleton Farms Bone In Butt Ham Review – Aldi In-House Brand

oth Appleton Farms is Aldi’s in-house brand name for selected meat products.  I’ve reviewed quite a few of them, which you can read here, tho for some unfortunate reason, some of them are tagged “Applewood.” Oops. I’ve even reviewed this particular product, bone-in butt ham, before, but it was made for Aldi by a different […]

Applewood Farms Bacon Review – Aldi In House Brand

I’ve been a little hotter than usual for bacon. For about a year, I’ve been buying whichever pre-cooked brand was on sale. Seemed like a no muss, no fuss opportunity to me, and often a lot cheaper than raw bacon. Lately, I’ve noticed that most all of the pre-cook brands the slices are nearly translucent, […]

Parkview Hot Italian Sausage Review (Aldi’s Brand)

Parkview is Aldi’s house brand for many of their meat products. Their ” Parkview Hot Italian Sausage,” is a smoked sausage, whereas most companies (and grocers) sell their Italian sausage as “fresh” (uncooked).  Smoked sausages like hot dogs, are fully cooked, so they only require a quick heat and eat, if that’s your preference.  This […]

Aldi Braunschweiger Review

You know I am generally OK with ALDI, the German owned budget grocery chain across the US.  They create their own brand names and go to top manufacturers to have the product made.  They retail for 25-50% of the “big name” brands. “Deutsche Kuche” (translator: “German cuisine”) is the brand name they cooked up for […]

Aldi Smoked Knackwurst Review

Under their own brand name of Deutsche  Kuche, Aldi sells a smoked knackwurst sausage manufactured for them by Salm Partners, of Denmark, WI. In  Germany, “knackwurst” can refer to a wide variety of sausages, depending on the region of manufacture.  In the US, it generally refers to a plump, mildly seasoned pork sausage in a natural […]

Geraldi’s Pizza Menu, Portland, OR

Portland, OR – Geraldi’s Italian Eating Place

When the sign on the door says “25 years in business” (and hopefully it isn’t left over from the last guy), well, that’s a pretty good sign. I’ve been in here before, had an Italian beef ‘hero’ (they called it “Chicago beef”) which was pretty good, as I recall. I didn’t ask them then, or […]
