Aldi shoppers love the German inspired strudels that are released during Aldi German week. Each box contains two strudels and come fully frozen.
These strudels are made with a flaky, buttery pastry dough that is rolled thin and filled with a sweet or savory filling.
The sweet strudels are perfect to serve for dessert with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream.
You can find the strudels under the brand name Deutsche Kuche. You can find many German food items under this Aldi private-label brand name. Deutsche Kuche strudels are imported from Germany and are known for their authentic taste and high quality.
What are strudels?
Strudels consist of a thin layer of dough that is rolled and stretched until it is very thin and almost translucent. The dough is then filled with a sweet or savory filling, such as fruit, cheese, or vegetables, and rolled into a spiral shape.
The texture of a strudel is delicate and flaky. The layers of dough creates a light and crispy crust on the outside of the strudel. The inside remains moist and flavorful.
The strudels come in several flavors. Two of the sweet strudel flavors that will sold during Aldi German Week 2023 are:
- Apple Strudel: 2 delicious traditional German flaked puff pastries filled with apples, raisins and a touch of cinnamon.
- Fruits of the Forest Strudel: 2 delicious traditional German baked puff pastries filled with apples and a selection of sweet and tart berries.
During the fall German week at Aldi, you can find additional flavors such as savory flavors like Spinach & Ricotta or Artichoke & Cheese Savory. Typically the spring German week at Aldi has fewer German food options.
