So I know I already told you about some ALDI Finds earlier this week (still loving those fleece lined leggings, because it’s warmed up to all of a balmy 9 degrees today). But today I ventured back over to my local store after two stir crazy days of being housebound due to the polar vortex, and they’d finally stocked this week’s Happy Farms Preferred heart shaped cheese.

Who can possibly resist this, I ask you? So, I got myself my own little Valentine’s Day gift this year!

Valentine’s Day cheese at ALDI

You’ll find four varieties of Happy Farms Preferred Valentine’s Day cheese at ALDI this week, priced at $3.99 each:

  • Heart shaped Mature Cheddar
  • Heart shaped Raspberries & White Chocolate
  • Round Wensleydale with Cranberries
  • Round Creamy Cinnamon Cheese with Raisins & Diced Apple

The choice for me was clear! I went with the heart shaped mature cheddar, which turned out to be a slightly crumbly, slightly nutty mature English white cheddar cheese.

Just slice right through the wax on ALDI’s heart shaped Valentine’s Day cheese, and the cheese slices will pop right out for you

I enjoyed some of mine with pesto crisps from an earlier ALDI special buy week (no longer available in stores), which made for a great afternoon snack! ALDI cheeses generally do not disappoint, and I was glad that in this case they didn’t trade out flavor for novelty. This was a lovely cheddar, somewhat similar in flavor to their grass fed farmhouse cheddar, but a little less crumbly and not quite as strong. How cute would this be on a Valentine’s Day cheese board, too?

Pair this heart shaped cheese with the cozy socks from last week, and you have yourself a much more memorable Valentine’s Day gift than your usual candy and flowers. Just my two cents for this year. 😉


ALDI Finds are limited time special buy items that are available in stores only while supplies last. So if you spot something you like, be sure to grab it while you can!

Who else is picking up heart shaped cheese this Valentine’s Day? If not, what caught your eye among this week’s ALDI limited time special buys?
