The Aldi Candy Shoppers Are Comparing To Reese's

Aldi consistently ranks among the top grocery retailers in North America, according to Supermarket News, YouGov, and Retail Info Systems — and for good reason. In addition to its mega-affordable pricing structure, loyal Aldi customers swear by the surprisingly superior quality of products found in the German retailer's aisles. In fact, Aldi's mission is to sell goods that meet or exceed the quality of many big national brands we know and love at reasonable costs, according to the company's website. Aldi stores offer groceries, toiletries, household items, and more in its 2,000 stores across the nation. With a plethora of options to choose from — and at such a wallet-friendly rate — it's easy to understand why many people around the globe opt for Aldi.

Aldi is also known for its wide selection of generic brands, which are often met with positive reviews. For instance, Aldi carries an array of chocolate products that customers absolutely rave about. There is one chocolate product in particular, however, that many shoppers have been comparing to one of the best-selling candies of all time. Mashed even ranked them as a top contender in our nut butter cup taste test.

Redditors love Aldi's milk chocolate peanut butter cups

Recently, a Redditor posted a photo of Choceur milk chocolate peanut butter cups on the Aldi subreddit with the caption, "Do NOT buy this!! You've been warned!!!!" As many quickly realized, the post was meant to be a tongue-in-cheek comment about how delicious the candies were, subtly "warning" users that they won't be able to stop eating them. Several users chimed in to praise the bite-sized confections, which apparently have a flavor as irresistible as that of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups — if not more.

One user wrote, "After eating these we can no longer eat Reese's. Amazing quality, amazing price," to which someone replied, "i agree, reese's taste like garbage compare to them." Other Redditor confessed, "My husband picked these up a few weeks ago and I told him to never buy Reese's again" as well as "How many do you guys eat in a sitting? Has to be at least 10 for me before I can drag myself away."

The bloggers behind Aldi Reviewer also expressed their approval of the "sensational" cups, saying, "Everything about them works to perfection. The chocolate outer coating has just the right blend of sweetness, as well as a hint of a shell that cracks when you bite into it, a little bit like when you eat a dipped cone. The peanut butter is creamy, smooth, and just the right amount of saltiness."
