Celebrate with Moser Roth Cinco de Mayo Chocolates From Aldi

This post is an open thread

Cinco de Mayo literally means “fifth of May.” This day celebrates the Mexican army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla on May 5th, 1862. While the battle lifted Mexicans’ spirits, unfortunately, a year later the Mexican army suffered a defeat that eventually led to Mexico City’s fall to French invaders.

Cinco de Mayo is not the same as Mexico’s Independence Day, which is celebrated on September 16th and observes Mexico’s independence from Spain. Cinco de Mayo is often observed more in the United States than it is in Mexico, and it’s become a popular time to celebrate Mexican-American culture. In recent years, my local Mexican restaurants tend to get very busy on Cinco de Mayo.

Aldi goes all in on celebrating Cinco de Mayo every year. The discount grocer stocks enchiladas, empanadas, street taco kits of all types, salsa, specialty tortilla chips, fajita kits, and more.

Something new I spotted this year are some Cinco de Mayo chocolates. These feature several Mexican-inspired flavors: horchata, dulce de leche, spicy mango chili, and cinnamon hot chocolate.

Moser Roth Cinco de Mayo Chocolates

Moser Roth Cinco de Mayo Chocolates cost $3.69 for a 5.29-ounce package of 12 chocolates at the time of publication. That comes out to about 70 cents per ounce or about 31 cents per chocolate.

These are an Aldi Find, which means they’re only in stores for a short time. Each store gets a single shipment, and after that sells out, they’re gone. Aldi might decide to bring them back in time for next year’s Cinco de Mayo, but we don’t for sure. After these sell out at your nearby store, you can’t order them online.

These are made in Germany. The cocoa is Rainforest Alliance certified.

These are sold under the Moser Roth brand. There is no company called Moser Roth. Instead, that’s the private label Aldi uses for its gourmet chocolate, which it sources from various suppliers.

  1. I got these last year and they were excellent. But in general Aldi chocolate is a good value.
