Well OK, all thing are relative. But this will be exciting news for some of my loyal readers.
I (well not me, my lovely BFF since the old days of high school, Keren) have found...
A new kosher yogurt.
Allow me a moment to explain.
I don't totally understand it, because I'm not a yogurt maker, but the majority of yogurts have gelatin in them. Gelatin, unless it's made by some lovely kosher company, is never kosher. So there are almost no yogurts that are kosher. Dannon vanilla, coffee, and lemon flavors, YoCrunch, and Stoneyfield Farms are basically the only not "kosher brand" yogurts that are kosher.
Keren called me about the exciting news.
Aldi now carries a kosher (O-U!) yogurt. And get this-it's really good! There are four flavors: Lime, Strawberry, Peach, and Cherry.
I know that many of you are completely perplexed by my bizarre excitement. But others of you are putting on coats and shoes and getting ready to run to Aldi right this moment. Just go with it.
But I haven't even gotten to the most exciting part of this.
Remember, Aldi is a discount grocery store.
So the yogurt costs....
Yes, thirty seven cents a cup.
Be still my thrifty beating heart.
My kids love it. I love it. BENJIE loves it.
And when I go and buy the yogurt, I also go and buy $1.49 milk. Woah.
Last week, I wanted to stock up on some more yogurty goodness. So I will bring you thestoryinwhichsaraisadirectionalidiot.
I noticed while at school on Thursday that there were lots of people walking around by my school with Aldi bags. So logic would dictate that there was an Aldi nearby. So I called Benjie and asked him to go on the Aldi website (yes, I am one of the few people left in the world without a Blackberry.) and find me the store. He tells me that there is one like .15 miles south of school, on Broadway (I park on Broadway every day). I'm perplexed-how is it possible that I haven't noticed the Aldi when I park approximately .15 miles from school on that very street, every day?
Well after school, it was raining, and I was parked .15 miles north on Broadway. So I decided to have Benjie mapquest me over to Aldi. He did. I followed his directions.
It seems that the Aldi was the very building that I park in front of almost every day. But the sign was on other side of the building so I had no clue that it was Aldi.
OK it's not as funny as I type it. But trust me. It was absolutely hysterical while I was on the phone with Benjie.
Whatever. Go to Aldi and buy some yummy cheap yogurt. And pick up your milk while you're at it.
