The Aldi Noodles Reddit Thinks 'Taste Like Play-Doh'

Don't get us wrong, there are plenty of Aldi foods you need to try before you die. However, on the other end of the spectrum, there are also a number of Aldi products you'd be better off avoiding.

Some of the Aldi products with horrible reviews include produce, cereal, soda, frozen sushi, and chips. To be fair, though, Tastylicious says the freezer can ruin even the best sushi, so the poor quality may not be entirely Aldi's fault. Similarly, many other grocery stores have also received countless complaints about their produce departments.

But even if some Aldi fails are shared by other grocery chains, a few are unique to Aldi. One product in particular has attracted the attention of Reddit, and not in a good way. Yes, we're talking about the Aldi noodles that allegedly taste just like Play-Doh — and don't even try to say you don't know what Play-Doh tastes like, because we all do (per Romper).

Reddit gives Aldi's Fusia noodles a big thumbs-down

One Aldi shopper started a food frenzy on Reddit after posting about the grocery chain's Fusia brand instant ramen. Their post read, "The noodles taste like Play-Doh, never again," and included a photo of the Kung Pao and Pad Thai instant ramen.

Although earlier this year Aldi fans were freaking out over these Asian-inspired noodle meals, opinions seem to have taken a turn for the worse. Another shopper commented on the post, "OMG, yes! Made the Kung Pao, took one sniff, and immediately threw it in the trash. Not worth even trying it!" Others wrote that they also hadn't been able to get past the smell, let alone taste the noodles.

But why do the noodles taste like Play-Doh? One person suggested that maybe the ramen was expired, but the original poster clarified that the noodles still should have been good for another four months. So who knows? The moral of the story: If you want Pad Thai, you should probably just try making Pad Thai at home.
