The next cereal review fares much better than the Millville Fruity Rice review.  ALDI carries a decent variety of cereal from Millville each meant to represent a major brand usually.
This cereal is called Honey Puffs and it is naturally supposed to mimic Honey Combs.  This was spot on as far as I can tell.  My family and I all really enjoyed it.   The cereal is shaped similar to the name brand and has a very comparable texture and flavor.  It holds well in milk and has a decent amount of sweetness in each bite.  The cereal is a sweetened corn & oat cereal and has the usual assortment of vitamins and minerals.

This was a very good buy in my opinion and I will definitely pick it up again.  My kids went through the box in 2 days.  The price at $1.89 is a really good value and the quality is above expectations.

Peanuts and almonds are a couple of things I buy less of when things get tight.  That being said I enoy a handful of peanuts as a snack occasionally so decided to try this brand from ALDI.
The ALDI brand is called Southern Grove and comes packed in a 16oz jar.  The peanuts are dry roasted with a hint of salt.  I have eaten Planters for a long time and after trying this brand am very impressed.  If being given a choice between the 2 brands I would choose Southern Grove.

The peanuts had a very nice flavor with a good balance of saltiness for my taste.  The quality of the peanuts themselves were very high.  My kids all enjoyed these as well and even asked me where they were purchased.  I am not 100% sure about the price but they appear to be a good deal.  I will have to check pricing next time I am in a supermarket for name brands but I am estimating that these are a good price per pound as well which even further enhances the value.

Very flavorful, good quality peanuts. Will definitely buy again. Prefer these over many name brands.

I had to try this cereal because I am a longtime fan of Fruity Pebbles.  Based on other experiences I was hoping this would yield the same result but I was left disappointed.
Fruity Rice is a cereal made of sweetened fruit flavored rice.  The cereal had a strong flavor to it, at times a little too strong and although it could be characterized as a fruit flavoring it sorely lacked in comparison to the flavor of Fruity Pebbles.  At times the flavor was almost too much and was unpleasant.  If the cereal was permitted to soak in milk the flavoring became less unpleasant but then the texture of the cereal left a lot to be desired.
The price of the cereal was decent at $1.89 per box (13oz) but the quality of the cereal wasn’t up to par with it’s brand name competition.  I have tried other cereals under the ALDI brand Millville and can report that most have been very good cost wise and quality wise.  On that point, Fruity Rice is the first product to receive a single $ rating.  It is inexpensive BUT tastes it as well.

This product will not be purchased again.  ALDI does have a DOUBLE QUALITY GUARANTEE that I just might have to take advantage of with this product.   The only problem is I wouldn’t mind getting my money back but would feel bad even donating the replacement box of cereal they will provide.
