Aldi is rolling out a new line of cheeses, and their names make them the perfect snack to serve at a retro ’80s party. The grocery chain’s Happy Farms line is having a limited release of six products that debut Feb. 6. The cheeses are all named after hit ’80s songs and, hopefully, they’re as tasty as the puns are funny.
These cheeses are priced at $3.49 each, and their names and the song titles they’re inspired by are as follows: Wake Me Up Before You Goat Goat (1984’s “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” by Wham!), Sweet Cheddar of Mine (1987’s “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns N’ Roses), Girls Just Wanna Have Fontina (1983’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper), Pour Some Gouda on Me (1987’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard) and Total Eclipse of the Havarti (1983’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart” by Bonnie Tyler). The packaging looks super-cute too:
Too funny! As Better Homes and Gardens points out, the Grammy Awards are just days away on Feb. 10, which means these new cheeses come out just in time to make a great addition to a music-themed viewing party. Make it a potluck and challenge your guests to come up with their own musical-themed puns for the names of their snacks. Check out the list of this year’s nominees for inspiration.
Of course, these musical cheeses aren’t the only kitschy product to be released by Aldi as of late. The chain is also selling a decadent-sounding chocolate wine made by the Chocolate Cellar. It’s been described as an alcoholic chocolate milk, which had made it too sweet for some. Still, it sounds like the perfect treat with which to surprise your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day, if you ask me! Aldi says it pairs perfectly with pastries, biscotti, fruits and desserts.
Will you be pouring breaking out the ’80s-themed cheese for your next spread?
