Bake Shop Cake Pops Arriving at Aldi

This post is an open thread and contains affiliate links

Cake pops are a real treat. You might spot these little balls of cake coated in icing and colorful sprinkles or other decorations at bakeries or at your local Starbucks. They often come on a stick so you can eat them like a lollipop. They’re ideal for birthday parties or other special occasions.

While you can purchase cake pops at many bakeries, you can also make them yourself, but my experiences with that have been mixed. Years ago, I bought a cake pop kit so my kids and I could make our own cake pops. It promised to be a fun activity. I quickly learned that there’s an art to making cake pops. Our first batch turned out … not so pretty. I bought more supplies and our second batch turned out a little nicer looking. A few years later, my daughter and I attended a cake pop workshop at a bakery as part of a Girl Scout field trip, and we came home with several professional-looking cake pops.

Even though I learned all kinds of cake pop tips from the pros, I don’t jump at the opportunity to make my own cake pops. They’re kind of like macarons. I love to eat them, but I don’t like to make them from scratch.

If you’re like me and would rather pay someone else to do the work of making cake pops, you might like to know that Aldi is selling cake pops for a limited time. These are scheduled to arrive in stores on February 28th, 2024.

What We Know:
Bake Shop Chocolate Cake Pops

Bake Shop Cake Pops come in chocolate or vanilla varieties. Both feature colorful sprinkles. They’re a product of Canada. They cost $4.49 for a 5.4-ounce package that contains four cake pops. That comes out to about 83 cents per ounce or about $1.12 per cake pop.

For comparison, I found 4.2-ounce two-packs of cake pops selling for about 60 cents per ounce or $1.50 per pop at Walmart at the time of publication. While the Walmart cake pops cost more per cake pop, the cake pops are larger and ultimately are a better deal per ounce. So, you might be able to find a lower price than Aldi on cake pops at other grocers or at big box retailers. However, if you go to a traditional bakery, you’re certainly going to pay more than the Aldi price.

As mentioned earlier, these are at Aldi only for a short time. They’re what Aldi calls an Aldi Find. That means each store receives one shipment, and after that sells out, they’re gone unless Aldi decides to bring them back later. Aldi does not offer online ordering for these if they’re sold out at your local store.

I found these in the Aldi Find freezer aisle at my local store, but it’s possible you might also find them in the refrigerated case or on the room temperature shelves in the baked goods aisle.

Bake Shop Vanilla Cake Pops

These Aldi cake pops are sold under the Bake Shop brand, which is not a company. Instead, it’s the private label Aldi uses for various baked goods such as 7 Up Cake, cinnamon rolls, and more.
