Aldi’s Latest Treat Is a Starbucks Copycat for a Fraction of the Price

And you can get four of them for under $5.



Aldi has given us plenty of solid copycat products that are as good as the originals, if not better. Those chicken fries taste just like those served at Burger King, and the Benton's Caramel Coconut Fudge Cookies will have you thinking you ordered a box of the infamous Girl Scouts Samoas.

Now, Aldi has a new sweet for customers that looks like a popular Starbucks offering—but sells for a whole lot less.

Aldi’s Bake Shop Bakery Cake Pops

Starbucks might be well known for its cake pops, but Aldi is giving the coffee shop chain some serious competition. Aldi recently released its Bake Shop Bakery Cake Pops in stores, and shoppers are excited—for good reason. These cake pops from the grocery chain’s private bakery label come in a four-pack and will only cost you $4.49, whereas Starbucks typically charges $1.50 to over $2 for one, depending on your location.

The Bake Shop Bakery Cake Pops come in two cake flavors—chocolate and vanilla—both with matching chocolate or vanilla topping dotted with sprinkles.

Instagram's ohheyaldi posted about the latest Aldi find in Bloomington-Normal, IL, and many were quick to add their thoughts. One commenter said, “Chocolate cake pops are so yummy delicious,” while someone else added, “These are so good!”

Parents also weighed in to say how these cake pops are very much kid-approved, including one user saying, “Our girls living their best life with these,” and another stating, “My boys LOVED these!”

There is no word on whether these cake pops are offered at all Aldi locations yet, but we did find both flavor options on Aldi via Instacart in the New York area, so the odds are looking pretty good.

We also aren’t sure how long they will be around, but if you’re a cake pop fan, it’s worth a look on your next shopping trip. We searched online and discovered these cake pops can be found in a couple of places in the store. Be sure to check the refrigerated case with similar items or in the baked goods aisle.
