Foodies are rejoicing over the return of a wildly popular Aldi cheese that sold out twice previously.
The 200g blocks of Le Pave cheese were re-stocked on store shelves around Australia after being discontinued for more than a year.
The French cheese has a decadent, creamy texture and is said to be better than the popular French cheese, D’Affinois – which retails for three times the price.
This time the $5.99 buy is accompanied by a new Le Pico cheese made from goat’s milk.

The two products were spotted by loyal Aldi customers who shared the news on social media.
‘Pave is back!!! And it brought a friend!’ one woman wrote online and shared an image to the Aldi Mums Facebook group.
‘My prayers have been answered,’ one shopper said and shared her excitement, while another added: ‘Yes! It’s been gone for a year now.’
The Le Pico cheese is also already proving popular and selling out.

Both cheeses would be ideal to enjoy on a baguette or with crackers and quince paste on a grazing platter

The alternative D’Affinois cheese retails for up to $18 in major supermarkets – a figure more than three times the $5.99 price of Aldi’s Le Pave.
‘We are proud of the award-winning cheese range on offer at Aldi, including our popular Le Pave cheese,’ an Aldi spokesperson previously told Daily Mail Australia.
‘Le Pave is produced within the Pays de la Loire region of France at one of the largest remaining dairy cooperatives in the country. To ensure its quality, the product is airfreighted to Australia on a weekly basis.’
