    It's $1.99 per block. I bought 2 for tacos Fri. night & then the kids made cheese quesadillas the next day for lunch w/the leftovers. We also made our own taco seasoning. It tasted much better than the store bought stuff & had no salt in it, which is a big plus.

    Steph - How much do you pay per oz for block cheese at ALdi? Is it cheaper than the $1.20 or so we pay at HT for 8 oz shredded cheese when it goes Buy2 Get 3 Free?

    I always buy my block cheese at Aldi & then we just shred it. It's much cheaper than buying shredded cheese. :)
