Aldi Fans Can't Get Enough Of These Frozen Crab Cakes

Crab cakes have graced tables longer than you might imagine. According to Costas Inn, these delicate seafood fritters stem back to pre-colonial times. Native Americans cooked up the first crab cakes and shared the recipe with the first settlers in Maryland. Due to the lack of refrigeration and risk of food spoilage, tourists and locals originally had to flock to the Maryland and Virginia coastline to enjoy fresh crab cakes, giving birth to a culinary tradition that continues to this day. Thanks to modern technology, we can get Maryland crab cakes shipped anywhere in America, and thanks to Aldi, we can pick up a bag of these delicacies for a great price. 

Instagrammer @theamazingaldi discovered Aldi now carries five-packs of Fremont Fish Market's crab cakes, featuring a blend of real and imitation crab. They posted a picture of the find, alongside the caption "Crab cakes! Yes, these are the ones in the frozen section and they're actually really good try them!" Shoppers love the find, responding to the post with glowing comments, like, "I saw four bags, I bought them all. When you see them, you have to get them." Another added, "Yummy in [an] air fryer with crab cake sauce." Once you see the price tag, you can't say no to these treats.
