Nostalgia hit me when I was perusing the deli case at ALDI. There, between some cheddar and habanero Jack snack sticks was my baby’s favorite cheese.

Now, my “baby” is taller than me and starting high school in a few short months, but the Emporium Selection Gourmet Gouda Snacking Cheese took me right back to his toddlerhood.

Why ALDI's Gouda Snacking Cheese Is My Family's Favorite

When my son was a tot, I would end up chasing him around ALDI if I didn’t put him in the cart. One day, while shopping, I grabbed a bag of these gouda sticks and opened one to keep him busy while I finished gathering my groceries.

Holding the cheese in his little hands, he carefully took a bite, and then another and another. By the time he’d finished, we were already in line and soon out the door. The cheese had worked its magic, and for the next couple of months, I grabbed a package every time I was there. I was heartbroken when this limited-time item disappeared from the aisles.

I’ve seen it only once or twice since so I was so happy to find it again—at least for now.

What I Love About ALDI's Gouda Snacking Cheese

At $2.59 for a package of 12 sticks, this cheesy snack is reasonably priced, and it’s gouda, I mean, good. When you open an individual stick, a whiff of sweet gouda tickles your nose. The cheese itself is milky, soft, and slightly sweet. It’s perfect for snacking whether you’re a toddler or an adult.

The sticks themselves are long rectangles—good for teaching toddlers shapes, perhaps. Years ago, they were more rounded and string cheese-like in shape, but they taste the same. The snacking cheese also comes in a habanero Jack flavor, which boasts a bit of heat, making it not so good for toddlers but perfectly fine for teenagers.

How I Use the Gouda Snacking Cheese

What I loved—and still like—about these cheesy sticks is their portability. Need some quick protein on the road? They fit the bill. Need a snack to take to the park? They’re perfect. Want to round out a school lunch? Just toss one in.

On the back of the package, it’s suggested that you can use them to make mini gouda and fruit skewers, which sounds delicious. They’re also handy if you need just a bit of cheese to melt on something—my husband used one the other day to top his tacos. One or two could be tossed into some easy mac ’n cheese to make it cheesier. They could easily be tucked into pita sandwiches, too.

Since these cheese snacks are here today and gone tomorrow, you'll want to snag some before they disappear again.
