Aldi is about to start selling Halloumi fries and we are grateful and excited
Sweet potato; chilli-cheese; garlic; Halloumi.
Fries - aka chips - come in many different guises... for which we are grateful.
The Halloumi variety is a more recent addition to the line-up. Halloumi is, according the to the BBC, "a semi-hard chewy, white cheese originating from Cyprus". As an added twist, the cheese can be cut into fries and then crisped up before being devoured.
It's a little bit notions-brunch, a little bit fancy-pub. Apparently Nando's is in on the game also. And now, seemingly, Halloumi fries are coming to Aldi.
Understandably, this is really good news if you want to eat them at home - Aldi is actually the first supermarket to stock them (hat-tip to Aldi).
The Golden & Crispy Specially Selected Halloumi Fries will be stocked in the frozen section. In the UK, they will retail for £1.99; we are still awaiting confirmation of Irish pricing.
Julie Ashfield, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi UK, said in response:
“Halloumi is very popular right now and we are delighted to be the first supermarket to bring our customers halloumi fries, a snack we think will be a big hit this summer and which isn't currently available from any other supermarkets.”
They go on sale next week. What a time to be alive.
