Aldi Fans Are Obsessed With These Belgian Truffles

With Valentine's Day around the corner and within sight, stores are starting to stock their shelves with all kinds of sweet treats to celebrate the chocolate-heavy holiday. Of course, Aldi has plenty of options that are popping up on store shelves right now too. One of them was recently spotted and posted to Reddit, and people can't stop describing how much they love these chocolates. 

The original poster, reginageorges_mom, snapped a photo of Specially Selected Belgian Cocoa Dusted Truffles at their local Aldi store and posted it to the discussion board on Monday, January 11. Within a day, the post was up-voted 184 times and people quickly commented to add their thoughts on the box of truffles. Each 8.81-ounce box is just $2.99, making these a total steal and way too easy to stock up on (via Aldi). They contain 240 calories per four pieces, according to the box.

Here's what Aldi shoppers are saying about these Belgian truffles

While the truffles pack a relatively high amount of calories, there's an upside for those who are on the keto diet, which emphasizes high fat and low carb intake (via Health Digest). One Reddit commenter said, "These are SO delicious, but have so much oil in them! Not sure if they'd work at keto fat bombs. Lol." That's when another commenter responded to say, "They do! They are great at giving you the chocolate taste without a carb overload." A third comment read, "They are amazing. I ate the whole box in 2 days. My kids didn't like the cocoa powder on the outside so I smashed the rest of them. Also, had no idea they were mostly coconut butter." Anyone looking for an amazing, chocolatey melt-in-your-mouth treat, take note.

The original poster described the truffles as "lovely drops of heaven," which clearly sets the bar high. Another comment read, "Just FYI those are amazing with a good red wine. Like insane." As Aisle of Shame notes, darker chocolates pair exceptionally well with darker wines. So, they must be as good as people say. Someone else wrote on the Reddit post to say, "They're delicious, melt in your mouth — literally. Try them from the fridge if you like snappier 'chocolate'. Quotation marks because it's mostly coconut butter/fat." So, if it sounds as good to you as everyone else seems to enjoy it, then it's high time you make an Aldi run.
