We at Aldi Reviewer are suckers for cheesecake. We usually only eat it during special occasions such as birthdays or holidays, but Aldi appears to be trying to make cheesecake a more common indulgence by selling it in individual portions in small jars.
Jar Joy Cheesecake Jar Desserts hit Aldi stores the week of February 5th, 2020. They are $1.99 for a 3.7-oz. jar, and they come in Strawberry or Cookies and Cream flavors. They are ALDI Finds (Special Buys), which means they will only be in stores for a short time, and Aldi’s website says they made not be available in all locations.
The jar says they are made from scratch, hand packed, and ready to eat with one jar containing a single serving. The jar also says they are “Florida made.” We don’t know anything else yet about who makes these cheesecakes, but delish quotes an Instagrammer who says they’re made by a small, women-owned business.
The online Aldi ad says the cheesecake jars can be found in the store’s cooler section, but we actually found them in the ALDI Find freezer section at our local store. Since they can be frozen, this means you can save your cheesecake to eat later, or you can buy in bulk and stock up.
We haven’t tried the Jar Joy Cheesecake yet because the $1.99-per serving price tag makes this a premium product that is more costly per serving than most of the other cheesecake products Aldi sells. We’re keeping an eye on them to see if they go on clearance at some point, though.
