Aldi is famous for its ridiculously affordable groceries, but there’s a lot more to the German supermarket chain than a solid deal on breakfast cereal. Case in point: Its killer, magically inexpensive cheese aisle. Three bucks for a hunk of Parm? BRB, we’re stocking up.
The 7 Best Cheeses at Aldi, Hands Down, No Contest
Specially Selected Aged Reserved White Cheddar
Aged for over 12 months, this inexpensive block was actually a 2013 Gold Medal Winner at the U.S. Championship Cheese Contest (a competition as glorious as it sounds).
Happy Farms Preferred Havarti Dill Cheese
You won’t find this creamy Danish-style pick anywhere else in the U.S. Made with fresh dill, the semi-firm block is delicious in sandwiches or stacked on crackers.
Specially Selected Gouda Cheese
The same texture as smoked Gouda but without the overpowering flavor—this crowd-pleaser is sweet with a sharp, robust flavor that little ones will love.
Specially Selected Pepperoni Marinara Hand-crafted Cheese
The outside of this wedge is coated with tomatoes and herbs, while the semi-soft interior is flecked with bits of pepperoni. So basically, it tastes exactly like your favorite slice of pizza. Imagine transforming this into a glorious, glorious grilled cheese sandwich.
Specially Selected Brie Cheese
At last, a ripe and creamy wheel that won’t jack up your grocery bill. (And let’s be honest, it’s probably less expensive than the artisan sleeve of seeded nut crackers you bought to go with it.)
Specially Selected Garden Vegetable & Sweet Basil Hand Crafted Cheese
Perfect for adding variety to your cheese board, this gorgeous, vibrant find is made with a blend of veggies (think: celery, carrots, bell peppers and parsley). A quick roll in sweet basil gives it a fragrant, delicious coating.
Priano Parmesan Italian Cheese Wedge
Slice off a piece and you’ll see it’s studded with gorgeous, crunchy crystals (you know, the hallmark of a good real wheel of Parm). It’s seriously impossible to beat this value. One giant plate of Crispy Parmesan Brussels Sprout Bites, coming right up.
