Spooky cheese will arrive in Aldi stores just in time for Halloween


Aldi is releasing four Halloween-themed cheese varieties for a limited time this month and we’re already so sad to see them go.

You wouldn’t think scary snacks would be appealing — outside of horror-themed parties and events, anyway. But Aldi found a way to make cheese — you know, everyone’s favorite snack that totally counts as a meal all on its own — look and sound so simultaneously scary and adorable that you won’t be able to resist.

There will be four spooky cheese varieties hitting Aldi shelves later this month, and each of them has its own unique name, packaging, and flavor.

Meet your new favorite cheeses: Scary Pumpkin Spice, Freaky Franken, No Rest For The Wicked, and Bat Knit Crazy.

Scary Pumpkin Spice is a Wensleydale cheese — if you like your cheese both moist and crumbly (and pumpkin spice flavored), this is a treat you definitely can’t miss. Cheese! Flavored with the same spices that go into your Pumpkin Spice Latte! And its packaging makes it look like a pumpkin!

If you’re a little creeped out by foods that aren’t the color they’re supposed to be, well, this scary cheese is doing its job perfectly. Freaky Franken is Derby cheese made with dried sage, which gives it a spooky green tint. Don’t worry — it probably tastes wonderful, especially if you’re a fan of more mild cheese.

No Rest for the Wicked is another Wensleydale cheese made with strawberries and prosecco, a fancy Italian wine. That’s right — you don’t even need to serve wine with this cheese, the taste is already there. (You can still serve wine with your cheese. You can do whatever you want. It’s your party.)

And finally, Bat Knit Crazy cheese draws you in with its packaging — it’s a bat wearing a SWEATER! — and hooks you with its classic flavor. Cheddar is a common favorite among cheese enthusiasts because it goes with almost everything. You can put it on or next to whatever you want. Or you can do what I do and just eat it by itself. There’s no wrong way to eat Cheddar, other than not eating it at all.

These cheeses will arrive at Aldi stores in mid-October and stick around until Halloween ends. So don’t forget to get yours before they go away.
