Aldi is great when it comes to introducing novelty themed cheeses, whether it’s Valentine’s Day cheese, St. Patrick’s Day cheese, or Cheese Advent Calendars. The most recent cheese to hit the discount grocery store’s shelves is the Emporium Selection Halloween Cheese Assortment.
This cheese is an ALDI Find (Special Buy), which means it will only be at Aldi for a short time. Each store gets one shipment, and after that sells out, these are gone until next year. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products that aren’t in stock at your local store.
The cheese costs $4.29 for a 6- to 7-ounce package in 2022, up from $3.99 per package in 2020 and 2021. The cheese selections are as follows:
- Bat Knit Crazy: a 7-oz. black aged Cheddar cheese
- Freaky Franken: a 7 oz. mild Derby cheese with dried sage
- Scary Pumpkin Spice: a 6 oz. Wensleydale cheese with cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg
One cheese flavor we don’t see in the 2022 ad is No Rest for the Wicked, a strawberry- and Prosecco-flavored Wensleydale cheese that was available in 2020 and 2021.
Aldi gets props for using unique ingredients such as sage and cinnamon to flavor these cheeses, and they might be just want you need to counteract all the sweets on Halloween. While you’re picking up your Halloween cheese, don’t forget to get a few spooky yard decorations, too.
Happy shopping, and happy haunting!
