Ever since the dawn of the Cronut, there have been countless new dessert mash-ups to try. And honestly, most of them are pretty great. What’s not to love about smashing two delicious sugary things together? That’s why when Aldi announced it was going to start selling a limited-edition dessert mash-up, the cult-favorite grocery store had our full attention.

Make Way for Cobble Cake!

Taste of Home reports that starting October 24, you can find a new addition to Aldi’s current selection: cobble cake. Touted as a marriage between a rich and creamy cheesecake and a fruity cobbler, Aldi’s six-slice cobble cake is being offered as an Aldi Find and will be priced at $5.99.

For the uninitiated, an Aldi Find (or Special Buy, if you live outside of the U.S.) is a limited-time product offered by Aldi stores on a rotating basis. Because Aldi is a low-inventory store they rotate products as needed (think of Aldi Finds as the seasonal aisle), which is why with the autumn season come Aldi Finds like apple cinnamon or pumpkin spice pizzelle cookies, a leaf collector, pancetta (which you could pick up to add to a mouth-watering pasta with acorn squash), and starting next month, cobble cake. Makes you want to wear a cardigan and put on some Sara Bareilles, doesn’t it?

What Does This Mash-Up Taste Like?

The cobble cake will come in two flavors (according to Aldi), and both sound scrumptious. First, their blackberry cobble cake offers a “cheesecake batter mixed with cobbler and fresh blackberry filling, topped with butter crumbs.” Their second flavor, a peach cobble cake, comes with a “cheesecake batter mixed with cobbler and a sweet peach filling, topped with butter crumbs.”

Since cobble cakes will be offered for a limited time for now, expect stock to run out fast. Maybe it’s best to swing by Aldi the morning of its release (October 24) to make sure you get your hands on a box or two of that buttery, rich, crumbly goodness.
