Aldi's Returning Halloween-Themed Cheeses Have Fans Excited

Halloween and candy pretty much go hand in hand. There are few things more delightful than getting to chow down on special seasonal treats and delicious Halloween candy staples like Skittles, mini Twixes, and yes, even candy corn. But what is one to do this time of year if they don't have a sweet tooth? No one wants to find floss or raisins in their trick or treat bag on Halloween, even if they aren't that fond of chocolate or candy corn. But there haven't always been great savory treat options for Halloween night.

Luckily, Aldi is here to change all that with their special Halloween-themed cheeses. In the past, the popular grocery store has delivered savory seasonal goodness with their Emporium Selection Halloween Cheese Assortment, and these tasty snacks have just returned to store shelves for the 2021 fall season, complete with names so punny they're a little bit scary. But there is one thing about these cheeses that are definitely not scary: the price. Packages of these cheeses are just $3.99 each, making them the perfect option for any Halloween party appetizer or seasonal charcuterie board, per Aldi.

Aldi has a wide selection of seasonal cheeses

Aldi offers a wide selection of Halloween cheeses, so there is almost certainly something for everyone to enjoy. Their fan-favorite Freaky Franken Sage Derby is a mild, buttery Derby cheese infused with dried sage. The Bat Knit Crazy Cheddar features a stronger kick of aged cheddar, while the cute, pumpkin-shaped Scary Pumpkin Spice Wensleydale delivers all the classic flavors of fall, including cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and of course, pumpkin spice, inside a mild, honey-sweetened cow's milk cheese. And for those who like a little extra sweet along with their savory, the No Rest for the Wicked Wensleydale cheese is sure to satisfy with its sweet infusions of strawberries and prosecco, per Aisle of Shame. This year, Aldi is also selling two versions of their Transylvanian sharp white hard cheese, the original and a bold red version that is soaked in red wine for an even richer flavor.

Fans of these Halloween cheeses took to social media to rave about their return. The Instagram account @aldifavoritefinds made a post alerting their followers to the wide variety of spooky cheeses available at Aldi, which was met with very enthusiastic responses. "Allllll the cheeses!!! I'm here for it," celebrated @clousimms. "The Aldi flavored cheese game is #onpoint," agreed @fwwonkette. So if you've been looking for some different seasonal snacks to help set your Halloween celebrations apart from the rest, Aldi's Halloween Cheese Assortment is the perfect thing to add to your Halloween festivities.
