In the UK, these snacks from Aldi are selling out so fast that they had to impose a two-box limit per customer. And it seems like the hype has flown over the oceans to Australian shores.
You probably know what we're talking about. We reckon you have a mouthful of it while reading this.
So what is this trendy snack that swept over the nation? They're the $5 Aldi’s Halloumi Fries.
What are Halloumi Fries?
According to Wikipedia:
Halloumi or haloumi is a semi-hard, unripened, brined cheese made from a mixture of goat's and sheep's milk, and sometimes also cow's milk. It has a high melting point and so can easily be fried or grilled. Halloumi is often associated with the island of Cyprus, where it has been produced by a multiethnic population for many centuries.
So basically, halloumi fries are just deep-fried cheese. Yuuuuum!

So it's just a matter of how far you'd go for one. And you better act quick because a lot of shielas and blokes are getting in on the action!
Instagram group Aldi Lovers Australia posted a snap of the snack to their 80 thousand followers this week, with the quote: “Stop the press! Crispy Halloumi Fries have been spotted in Aldi.”
