How do Aldi’s Cheese Crisps Taste?
These snacks are multilayered sourdough crackers with that are loaded with Asiago and Cheddar cheese. The crackers have a wonderful combination of crunchy, cheese and savory that make them a wonderful snack.
The cheese flavor is deep and rich and the touch of cayenne pepper gives them an interesting kick without actually making them spicy.
These snacks are labelled as “crackers” but I do not suggest using them in that manner. By that I mean I wouldn’t want to stack other foods on them or use them as dippers. I think these are best served as stand alone snacks so people can truly enjoy their crispiness and deep cheese flavor.
These Taste Familiar!
These Cheese Crisps taste exactly like the Cheddar CheeseSticks at Trader Joe’s.
It turns out that the ingredient list is identical between the two products. Given the intimate relationship between Aldi and Trader Joe’s I suspect that these are the same product with different packaging and presentation.
