Pumpkin spice cheese, anyone?

Aldi is first and foremost beloved for its super affordable prices, but the grocery chain is also becoming known for its fun (and delicious) cheese selection. First, there were the varieties named after popular songs from the '80s. Then, we enjoyed a selection in honor of St. Patrick's Day. Now, the supermarket is dropping another collection just in time for October 31.

The Emporium Selection Halloween Cheese Assortment is made up of four unique cheeses with festive names, including Scary Pumpkin Spice, No Rest for the Wicked, Freaky Franken, and Bat Knit Crazy. Of course, it wouldn't be an Aldi product without a low price point. Each cheese will retail for just $3.99, so you can try each one without spending much at all. In fact, you'll definitely be able to buy a nice bottle of wine (or even an entire wine calendar) to go along with your purchase.

Scary Pumpkin Spice

Scary Pumpkin Spice is a Wensleydale cheese, which is described as a crumbly, moist cheese. The spice comes from a mix of made of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Although most people pair cheese with wine, this could be the first version that goes well with a pumpkin spice latte.

No Rest for the Wicked

No Rest for the Wicked is another Wensleydale cheese. It's made with strawberries and prosecco, so if you're celebrating a special occasion this fall, this would be the one to serve. The packaging is giving us some serious sugar skull vibes and is almost too pretty to tear open.

Freaky Franken

Freaky Franken is a sage Derby cheese, which is a semi-firm variety that's mild in flavor. Don't be alarmed by the hue as the green color comes from dried sage that's been mixed in. It certainly does look a bit eerie, but we're sure it tastes wonderful.

Bat Knit Crazy

Bat Knit Crazy is a good old cheddar cheese. Cheddar can be eaten in just about any way you desire, so feel free to enjoy this one on with crackers, on bread, or even just by itself. You can't go wrong with a classic.

So, when can you get your hands on these cheeses? The collection will be available in stores on Wednesday, October 16, so make your calendars accordingly. (And maybe wear your stretchy pants that day, too.) The cheeses are part of October's Aldi Finds program, which means they're only available for a limited time. So if you're intrigued by any of these, you'll want to stock up while they're still available.
