Pick Up Deutsche Küche Wafer Rolls During Aldi German Week

This post is an open thread

Have you ever noticed how Aldi stocks a lot of German foods at certain times of the year? The reason why is because Aldi originated in Germany. It began in 1913 when Anna Albrecht opened a small grocery store in the suburbs of Essen, Germany. Following World War II, Anna’s sons, Theo and Karl, took over managing the store, and they named it Albrecht KG. They expanded and opened additional locations. By the 1960s, Theo and Karl couldn’t agree about whether to sell tobacco products, so they decided to create two companies under the Aldi (short for Albrecht Diskont) name: Aldi Nord and Aldi Süd. Aldi Süd operates Aldi stores in southern Germany, the U.S., U.K., and Australia. Aldi Nord operates Aldi stores in northern Germany and other parts of Europe, as well as owning Trader Joe’s, which operates independently.

With that said, Aldi US likes to give a nod to its German heritage twice a year by selling products such as red cabbage, warm potato salad, and doppel keks under its Deutsche Küche brand. Deutsche Küche means “German cuisine.” This brand is not a separate company but is the Aldi private label for its German or German-inspired foods.

One product that frequently shows up during German week at Aldi is wafer rolls. These consist of sweet, crispy wafer cookies that have been shaped into rolls, with one end dipped in either milk chocolate or dark chocolate.

Deutsche Küche Wafer Rolls are an Aldi Find, so they’re only in stores for a short time. Each store receives one shipment, and after that sells out, they’re gone until the next German week. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products that are not currently in stock at your local store.

These cost $2.49 for a 4.41-ounce package at the time of publication. That’s about 56 cents per ounce. Each package contains about 4.5 four-wafer servings, which comes out to about 55 cents per serving.

These are a product of Germany. They contain Rainforest Alliance certified cocoa.
