Have you ever had an Aldi Kringle? If you haven’t, you are missing out!
When you hear the word Kringle, what’s the first thing you think of? Chances are, it might be Kris Kringle, aka Santa Claus.
But, if you’re from Wisconsin, you know that Kringle has a much different, delicious meaning.
What is a Kringle?
A Kringle is a Scandinavian pastry. It is usually ring shaped and made up of many flaky layers, with a fruit filling. The rings are frosted and easy to cut into pieces to share. While there are many Wisconsin bakeries that make Kringles, the Aldi Kringle hails from Racine Danish Kringles, in — you guessed it — Racine, Wisconsin.
What Kringle Flavors are Sold at Aldi?
At Aldi, these pastries are available in two flavors — raspberry and almond. We love them both! These pastries freeze beautifully, so we like to pick up a couple when we see them, and then freeze to have at the holidays.
In 2020, the Kringles are an Aldi Find for the week of Oct. 28 (Oct. 25 in stores with an ad switchover).
What is the Price of a Kringle at Aldi?
The kringles at Aldi sell for $4.99 for each 14-ounce pastry. This is a great deal! If you were to order Kringles online from Racine, you would expect to pay at least $12 for one.
Of course, if you become a big Kringle fan, you can find them online year-round. Many of the Wisconsin Kringle bakeries have gotten very creative with their Kringle flavors — offering varieties such as pumpkin spice, caramel macchiato, cranberry and pecan, and macadamia nut.
Have you tried the Kringles from Aldi?
Which flavor is your favorite? We always buy both raspberry and almond when it’s Aldi Kringle time because we can’t decide!
