Aldi Releases Cheeses Named After Your Favorite 80’s Hits
Cheese gets better with age. Songs become more appreciated with age. Why not combine the funks into one hit package? See the crazy flavors here.
Discount grocery chain Aldi has done just that. They recently released $3.49 cheeses named after your favorite 80's songs.
These cheese's will have a limited run at select stores starting February 6!
According to Better Home and Gardens, the cheeses released are as follows:
Total Eclipse of the Havarti
This cheese is a classic Havarti with a traditional flavor and texture. It’s named after Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart, and pairs well with a red like Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir or Merlot.
Wake Me Up, Before You Goat Goat
This cleverly named goat cheese comes packaged in cute individual medallions, which makes it an easy grab-and-go snack to keep in the fridge. Aldi suggests pairing this cheese, named after Wham!’s Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go, with a Sauvignon Blanc.
Sweet Cheddar of Mine
This creamy red Leicester-style cheddar cheese is named after the 1987 hit Sweet Child O’ Mine, by Guns N’ Roses. The cheese is made from milk that’s imported exclusively from the Isle of Man. Aldi recommends pairing this with one of their full-bodied white wines.
Girls Just Wanna Have Fontina
This fontina cheese is Danish cow’s milk cheese, rather than the typical Italian fontina, and has a soft, sweet taste. According to Aldi, it pairs well with a Malbec or Sangiovese. It’s named after Cyndi Lauper’s 1983 hit, Girls Just Want to Have Fun.
Billie Goat is My Lover
This cheese, named after Michael Jackson’s hit Billie Jean, is a hybrid cheese that combines a goat-cheddar cheese with a mild cheddar. Aldi describes this as a buttery mild cheddar with sweet and tangy notes of goat cheese that goes well with fruity wines and ales.
