While several customers are rejoicing over Aldi’s holiday cheeses, some consumers are reacting to the items with caution. As one Instagram user shares, they’re uncertain if these flavor profiles blend well together, writing, “Not too sure about these … I think of cheese as savory, but these sound like they’re gonna be sweet.”
However, other shoppers — who have tested the products in past seasons — offer some more positive feedback. One comments, “I tried the eggnog last year with Nilla wafers and it was amazing,” while another chimes in, “Oh man, I bet that gingerbread one on toast in the morning is going to be delish.” However, that one skeptical social media user isn’t alone in their apprehension, as others on Reddit debate which flavors are nice and which are on the naughty list. As one Redditor puts it, “I’m skeptical on the eggnog flavor, but I bet the cranberry is delicious.”
As with most things, flavored goat cheese may not be for everyone. But, it’s the holidays! So, you might want to get out of your comfort zone and live a little. These cheeses could potentially be a hit at your next holiday celebration — if your taste buds are feeling bold enough.
