One frustrating thing about ALDI is there complete unpredictability. Even Trader Joe’s has a definite seasonality and keeps popular items on board. But ALDI products often appear and disappear before most people can get a taste. Fortunately, one popular dairy-free item (or should I say two!) is making a comeback for those who missed it. Earth Grown Vegan Cheddar Sticks and Mozzarella Sticks are hitting shelves now, just in time for the Super Bowl. Hopefully, this time, they stick around. But just in case, stock up!
Earth Grown Vegan Cheddar & Mozzarella Sticks are on Repeat at ALDI
For some reason, ALDI decided to get fancy with their ingredient names. “maize” starch and flour are just cornstarch and corn flour, and gram flour is chickpea flour (not graham flour, which contains wheat). So these cheesy appetizers are not only dairy-free, they’re also gluten-free and allergy-friendly by ingredients.
Unlike traditional mozzarella sticks, these appetizers don’t have that telltale cheese stretch. But they do have a very cheesy flavor that still offers a bite of nostalgia. But be sure to leave your rating and review below to let others know what you think of the taste and texture!

Best vegan cheese sticks!
We found these in February, my husband is not vegan. These were the only vegan cheese he liked and then they were gone when we went back for more. Really sad they aren’t an all the time item. They are really good. I really hope they bring these back again!
