How can lack of choice be a good thing?
For certain things, little or no choice is required. How many different types of chopped tinned tomatoes do you need to choose from? As long as the options available are of sufficient quality, what more do you need?
Aldi do normal and posh tinned tomatoes, and pasatta and puree, so a total of about 4 options. Whereas Tesco has 61 options for these items on their website!

I completely disagree with you. Choice is always a good thing as it enables you to get precisely the product you want.
If this forum proves anything it is that people have widely differing tastes and needs. It is one of the triumphs of modern retailing that these differences can be catered for..

We used to shop at Asda and would spent £140 a week for 5 of us. We now shop at Aldi and have for a year. We spent around £80 a week.
My only peev with Aldi is that they don't do any wholegrain items, such as rice, wraps, bagels etc.... Also no half fat soured cream ;-)
It would just make life easier if they did those wholegrain options as we eat alot of them.
I only to go Asda now or sometimes a pound shop for toiletries as I like my branded shampoos, shower gels, toothpaste....
