Watch out Australia - here come Halloumi Fries!

This Aldi snack is proving sooooo popular with shoppers in the UK, the supermarket giant is being forced to limit customers to just two boxes per customer!

Now, the cult snack is taking off in Australia and it’s causing a similar frenzy.

At $5, Aldi’s Golden Crispy Halloumi Fries are the latest snack to send shoppers wild.

Instagram group Aldi Lovers Australia posted a photo of the box to their 80,000 followers with the caption, “Stop the press! Crispy Halloumi Fries have been spotted in Aldi.” And boy, was that a popular move!

Nearly 2,000 Aldi fans admitted they had either tried them and loved them or were desperate to get their hands on them!

“Think these need to be added to the shopping list,” one Instagram user wrote.

“These are already sold out at my local. Devastating,” added another.

Aldi announced it would stock the famous Golden Crispy Halloumi Fries last year, but many shoppers hadn't seen them until now.

Sadly, they only appear to be available in Queensland, Victoria and Western Australian stores, at the moment.

At the end of last year, in the UK, shoppers were limited to two boxes per customer as supplies kept selling out in days. 

“I can confirm that as of now halloumi fries are being limited in stores to two boxes per person. This is to ensure that all customers have the chance to try this popular product for themselves,” a spokeswoman for the stores said in July last year.

Halloumi is clearly THE product to eat at the moment Aldi's rival Coles announced they are to sell Halloumi Chips.

But on social media, some clever commenters pointed out that halloumi chips and fries aren’t difficult to make yourself.

All you need to do is chop the block of halloumi up and grill until golden brown, or dust them with flour and fry.

Have you tried the Aldi Golden Crispy Halloumi Fries? What did you think?
