This Market Chain Just Dropped Candy From Its Checkout Lines

Aldi-Candy-Checkout

That temptation of grabbing that last-minute candy bar at the grocery checkout line is all too real. East coast supermarket chain Aldi wants to get rid of that tempation for its shoppers.

Aldi has announced they’re losing the checkout sweets at their stores and replacing them with healthier alternatives, The Chicago Tribune reports. This includes getting rid of chocolates and sugary bites and replacing them with dried fruit, granola bars and trail mix.

The company wanted to give customers a way to “feel good” about the checkout choices they make when it comes to snacks.

With nearly 1,500 in the United States, Aldi wants to finish its transition by the end of 2016. Locations of Aldi stores in the United Kingdom have already finished swapping out sweets.

Those who immediately go to that angry place, calm down. You can still walk to the other side of the store where they sell candy. You just won’t find them at the checkout line.

You may also remember Target testing something similar a while back.
