No need to visit Italy this summer for some tasty gelato when you can just make a quick trip to your local Aldi instead. Now for a limited time, Aldi is offering new flavors of gelato in their freezer section. It’s perfect for all of your patio hangs and backyard barbecues this summer.

Although Aldi tends to offer a mixed assortment of gelato flavors throughout the year, we can’t help but want to dig into these three new delicious flavors this summer: Mocha Cookie Crumble topped with a chocolate sauce, Birthday Cake topped with rainbow sprinkles, and Peach Cobbler topped with caramel and crispy candy bits. The best part? Each tub is sold only for $3.79, which honestly might be cheaper than the tiny cone of gelato you would buy on the street.

Aldi shoppers are excited about these new flavors — especially because the gelato is being offered at such an affordable price.

“I can confirm that Aldi gelato is delicious,” says Sarah of @aldiallthetime on TikTok. “Yes those gelatos are SO GOOD!” comments a TikTok user. “The mocha gelato has become my go-to,” writes another.

These containers of gelato are one of the many tasty treats Aldi just dropped for shoppers to enjoy this summer season. If you’re more of a fruity dessert person, Aldi is now selling Piña Colada and Caribbean Fruit Bars with your favorite tropical flavors, as well as a Cheesecake Supreme Sampler with pre-cut slices for your guests to enjoy (they’re both gluten-free).

Once you have those buckets of gelato in hand, why not make a fun dessert to serve your guests? Sure, you could serve that gelato in bowls or on a cone, but how about these Sicilian ice cream sandwiches with buttery toasted brioche buns? You can also never go wrong with an after-dinner affogato.
