Forget heart-shaped lockets and diamonds for Valentine's Day gifting. Love can be better expressed with lactose, in my opinion. Great news for those who stan dairy: heart-shaped cheese will be available at Aldi grocery stores for Valentine's Day 2019, and I've honestly never wanted anything more.
Consider this announcement an official alert for all lovers, whether you're in a relationship with another person or with every cheeseboard you've ever crossed! Gifting a loved one — which can totally be yourself — heart-shaped cheese is the way to go. Nothing says I appreciate you like cheddar all dressed up for date night.
The Happy Farms Preferred Valentine's Day Cheese Assortment at Aldi comes with three cheeses. Two of which are heart shaped. One of which is covered in bright, classic, romantic red wax. All of which are devourable. Though I'm sure anyone would be thrilled with heart shaped cheese anytime of the year, this assortment is exclusive to Valentine's season. That said, you won't have to wait too long to break the heart cheese. Per Aldi, it will become available on Jan. 30 — who says you can't celebrate love a little early? When cupid's cheese assortment does become available it will retail for $3.99. That's a lot more reasonable, and delicious, than a diamond. This Valentine's Day, eat your heart out.
Aldi grocery fans have more than just cheese to look forward to in the new year. Accompanying the new 2019 products is a ~chocolate wine~. That is correct, chocolate. Taking the early title for Couple of the Year might be the Valentine's Day Cheese Assortment and this chocolate wine. Can you think of a more appropriate pairing for Feb. 14?! The Chocolate Cellar Chocolate Red Wine retails for $8 and will also be available beginning Jan. 30.
Speaking of chocolate and heart shapes, there a multitude of treats you can get heart shaped for Valentine's Day. What says "I love you" more than food molded into the shape of a heart? Aldi will also have heart shaped pasta — because love is a bowl of this adored form of carbohydrate — and chocolate truffles available on Jan. 30. While the truffles will retail for $3 a pack, the pasta will retail for $1.99, according to Aldi.
