You can’t go wrong with any of the chocolate selections at Aldi. Whether you are looking for a holiday gift or an Easter basket centerpiece, or some name-brand candy bar knockoffs, or you want to make s’mores, Aldi has the chocolate you need. Some of my personal favorites at Aldi include Knoppers, Choceur Peanut Butter Cups, and Aldi’s Choceur Milk Chocolate bars with hazelnut paste.
The Choceur Milk Chocolate bars were on sale for 99 cents for a 5.29-oz. bar at the time of publication. Regular price is $1.49. Other chocolate bar varieties under the Choceur line include a milk chocolate bar with almonds and a dark chocolate bar with almonds. The chocolate bars are Regular Buys, which means they are on Aldi shelves year round.
These Choceur Milk Chocolate bars are described on the package as “smooth milk chocolate made with hazelnut paste.” They are a product of Austria. The cocoa is Utz certified, with a note on the wrapper stating it is “supporting socially responsible and environmentally friendly cocoa farming.”
Ingredients are: milk chocolate (sugar, milk, cocoa butter, chocolate liquor, hazelnut paste, soy lecithin [emulsifier], and vanilla extract).
If you’re looking out for allergens, this contains milk, soy, and tree nuts (hazelnuts). It may also contain other tree nuts, peanuts, and wheat.
One bar/package contains five 3-block servings, with each serving netting you 170 calories, 10 grams of total fat (13% DV), 6 grams of saturated fat (32% DV), 20 mg of sodium (1% DV), 16 grams of carbohydrates (6% DV), 14 grams of total sugars, 13 grams of added sugars (26% DV), and 2 grams of protein.
The package recommends storing this chocolate in a cool, dry place.
These chocolate bars taste great, and my family prefers them over traditional name-brand Hershey’s bars (which Aldi also usually stocks along with other name-brand chocolate such as Kit Kat bars and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups). The addition of hazelnut paste seems to be the secret ingredient. These bars don’t really taste nutty. They have a smooth texture and rich, nuanced chocolate flavor.
I’ve shared this chocolate with others during an extended family camping trip, and I got comments such as, “That’s good chocolate. What kind of chocolate is that?”
The individual squares break off easily for the most part, too, making these ideal for sharing or for portioning out for s’mores.
Choceur Milk Chocolate bars with hazelnut paste are an interesting change-up from traditional chocolate bars. These are a favorite for snacking or for assembling s’mores around the campfire. Highly recommended.
