Aldi Just Brought Back Its Halloumi Fries

Prepare yourselves for another round of trolley bashing in the frozen foods aisle: following their popularity last year, Aldi has brought back its halloumi fries for a second time.

Boxes of the golden, cheesy fries have a slightly higher price than last year - £2.29 as opposed to £1.99 - but come in the same packaging and weight (190g).

Aldi's Specially Selected Golden & Crispy Specially Selected Halloumi Fries are already in-stores after launching earlier this week and packs can be found in the frozen foods aisle of the budget supermarket.

"Inspired by a similar offering from popular Portuguese chicken eatery, Nando's; Aldi's Specially Selected Haloumi Fries are made with scrumptiously soft - and salty - halloumi cheese from Cyprus and a lightly seasoned crispy coating making them the perfect side or snack for sharing," Aldi says.

"So, get the sauce ready, start dipping and say hallou to halloumi heaven!"

Last year, the halloumi fries were so popular that Aldi had to limit shoppers to just two packs per purchase so everyone could get their hands on some.

Aldi says the halloumi fries are seasonal, meaning they'll only be in-store from spring to summer, although there's no exact dates.

Halloumi fries are not the only addition to Aldi stores as the supermarket is currently trialling self-service tills to speed up the checkout process.

At present, only one store in Tamworth in Staffordshire has the self-service checkouts but Aldi says if the machines prove to be successful during the trial, they could be rolled out elsewhere.

It's unclear how long the trial will last, but the machines are already installed.

And Aldi is also trialling a smaller local store in South London aimed at urban consumers last month.

The new store is part of another trial which could be rolled out to four other London locations, including Kingston, Kilburn and Tooting.

Aldi Local is similar to a Tesco Express or Sainsbury's Local as they stock a smaller supply of items for customers, although the special buy aisle has been taken away.
