Still have some entertaining left to do? Need to bring some goodies to the office? Or do you just have a bone-crushing love of cheese but a disproportionate budget?
Get your butt to one of my favorite stores, Aldi.
For the past few weeks, the discount grocery chain has busted out seasonal specials. These are foodstuffs that Aldi holds back until special occasions, kind of like nice china or lacy underwear.
Anyhoo, with the year drawing to a close, I expect that these items will disappear, along with bundles of ugly Christmas sweaters, until next holiday season, so it’s time to stock up.
A big portion of their winter seasonal items is made up of “gourmet” cheeses. I’m sure there are cheese snobs out there who will turn their noses up at discount dairy, but I can’t turn down 4-ounce logs of goat cheese for $1.99 (in fact, I bought three logs during one visit). Here are some other items on sale:
- Brie or havarti cheese: $2.99
- A box of six-cracker assortment: $2.49
- Brown-and-serve rolls: 99 cents
- Red or green sprinkles: 99 cents
- Queen Anne’s Chocolate-Covered Cherries: $1.19
- Golden raisins: $2.29
