Traditional Christmas Tree Bulbs Are Fine, But Cheese Ornaments Are So Much Better

Aldi is selling ornaments filled with cheddar.

What’s better than gathering the family to decorate the Christmas tree with tinsel, lights and ornaments? Gathering them to decorate it with tinsel, lights and ornaments filled with cheese!

This year, Aldi is offering clear, ball-shaped ornaments filled with hunks of mild, grass-fed cheddar cheese from its Emporium Selection collection. The spherical ornaments come in at least two decorative options – one featuring a Christmas tree on the outside, the other a snowflake. Each ornament encases four individually wrapped, 80-calorie blocks of cheese. (According to an online product listing, the ornaments come in sleigh or snowman designs as well.)

Each 2.84 oz. cheese ornament retails for $4.99 and is tagged with a card featuring a cute message like “’Tis the Season to Eat Cheese” and “What a Bright Time, It’s the Right Time to Eat Cheese All Day.”

Aldi suggests that the ornaments make a “Great Hostess Gift.” That’s undoubtedly true (what hostess wouldn’t want to be presented with a cheese-filled tree ornament?!), but if you want to get them for everyone – or anyone – on your list, you should probably act fast. The ornaments are one of this week’s special Aldi Finds and may not be available for long.

What a great, if cheesy, way to have your holiday ornament and eat it (quick, before it spoils) too!
