Great prices at Aldi Foods, but be prepared, you must pay with cash or debit card.

Did you know Aldi is owned by the same company that owns Trader Joe's? Well not exactly. Two distinct companies ... Aldi Nord runs Trader Joe's, but Aldi Süd runs Aldi Foods in the United States.

Aldi is short for Albrecht Diskont. Theo Albrecht Jr. and his brother, Berthold, inherited German discount supermarket chain Aldi Nord and Trader Joe's in 2010 when their father, Theo Albrecht, died. Two years later Berthold died at the age of 58, leaving his stake to his wife, Babette and five children. The two chains have more than 5,300 stores in nine European countries and the U.S. and pulled in estimated revenues of $38 billion

Aldi Nord and Aldi Süd have been financially and legally separate since 1966, although both divisions' names may appear (as if they were a single enterprise) including certain house brands. The formal business name is ALDI Einkauf GmbH & Compagnie, oHG.

Theo Sr. and his brother Karl built up their mother's grocery store into a large German chain but split ownership in 1961. Theo Sr. got the northern German stores and the rest of Europe (Aldi Nord); Karl took the stores in southern Germany (Aldi Süd) and the rights to open stores in the U.S., the UK and Australia. Theo Sr. bought Trader Joe's in 1971.

Notice that Theo Albrecht, of Aldi Nord, bought Trader Joe's in 1979; but Aldi Süd has the rights to open stores in the U.S.

Giribaldi's Italian Eatery Returns to Arlington Heights


Cool mural at Giribaldi's new location at 1960 N. Arlington Heights Rd.


Arlington Heights has a Giribaldi's again -- now located at the southwest corner of Arlington Heights Road and Rand Road.

Michael Bagan opened the new restaurant close to the original Arlington Heights location, which was at Town & Country Mall (now Town & Country Shopping Center). Most recently the Arlington Heights Garibaldi’s was located on Golf Road, just east of Arlington Heights Road. The Golf Road restaurant had to close because of non-payment of sales taxes. Michael Bagan came in as a new investor, who was not responsible for the tax liability.

Fox News Chicago Finds Some Gluten-Free Experts with Some Helpful and Healthy Recipes

Celebrities Try Gluten-Free Diets - Will It Work For You?: MyFoxCHICAGO.com

Celebrities Try Gluten-Free Diets - Will It Work For You?: MyFoxCHICAGO.com

FOX Chicago News featured Gluten-Free diets that are apparently being tried by celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, Zooey Deschanel, Lady Gaga and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Chicago Bulls player Kyle Korver told Men's Health Magazine a gluten-free diet has boosted his performance, and made him healthier.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck actually is required to eat a gluten-free diet because she suffers from celiac disease, often celiac sprue), which is an autoimmune disorder of the small intestine that occurs in genetically predisposed people of all ages from middle infancy onward. Celiac disease is associated with anemia, and malabsorption of vitamins and minerals.

Even people without celiac disease can experience allergic-like reactions from gluten, such as bloating, abdominal discomfort, pain, or diarrhea; or it may present with a variety of extraintestinal symptoms including headaches and migraines, lethargy and tiredness, attention-deficit disorder and hyperactivity, autism and schizophrenia, muscular disturbances as well as bone and joint pain. Gluten sensitivity is thought to affect approximately 6% of the general population. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley.

FOX Chicago News interviews Jen Cafferty, author of gluten-free blog (gfreelife.com), which includes recipes and entree information for various meals of the day; and Chef Ryan Hutmacher (centeredchef.com), who cooks for athletes, and teaches them how to cook for themselves at home. See the video for a tasty looking quinoa pilaf with roasted butternut squash.
