Aldi Is Bringing Back Its Delicious $4.99 Haloumi Fries
For some people, haloumi is one goddamn good piece of food.
The 'semi-hard, unripened, brined cheese made from a mixture of goat's and sheep's milk' has been around for hundreds of years however it seems like only recently did some genius come up with the idea of making them in the shape of fries.
You can get haloumi fries from a bunch of places however you're usually paying the classic restaurant premium. So why not skip all that and just get 'em from Aldi for less than a fiver.
Well, when the debuted in Australia earlier this year, there was such a frenzy that they sold out.
But, after a mini-hiatus, it seems like Aldi has restocked and they're up for grabs.
The announcement that they were coming back was posted onto Aldi Australia's Facebook page where it's been liked, shared and commented on by tens of thousands of people.

But if that doesn't show how much of a fan favourite they are, perhaps seeing what happened in the UK will help.
In similar scenes, Aldis across Britain sold out of the product however when they were restocked there was a limit placed on how many people could buy - which was two per customer.
As you can imagine, such a travesty hasn't gone down well with shoppers, who are outraged at being told they will no longer be allowed to fill their trolley to the brim with the breaded sticks of cheese.
Speaking to the Sun, one customer who makes a 40-minute trip just to shop at his local store has said he will never shop there again.
Matt told the Sun: "After reading your arrival of the comeback of Aldi's halloumi fries my partner and myself jumped in the car and took the 40-minute drive to our local store in Ashford, Kent.
"I visit Aldi once a month and spend over £100 a month but since this incident, I will no longer visit the brand and take my money elsewhere, where I will receive better customer service and signs where it states if there's a limit per product per customer."
A spokesperson for Aldi said: "Our halloumi fries are proving incredibly popular once more, and as a result, some stores may be limiting customers to two boxes to ensure that as many customers as possible have a chance to enjoy them."
So you can be assured that they'll fly off the shelves when they hit Aussie stores.
