Aldi are selling their own version of a Vienetta - and it’s met with rave reviews!

The German retailer has done it yet again, selling a delicious twist on an Aussie dessert classic.

Growing up in Australia, you'd remember the special occasions your parents would whip out the Vienetta after dinner and cut everyone a slice.

The crunchy chocolate top, the squiggly piped sides and of course, the extra bits of layered crunchy choc pieces that would crack when cut are all memories we hold dear in our hearts.

Now, you can buy a budget dessert from Aldi that looks like a Vienetta -complete with hard choc top and carefully-piped sides - for only $3.99, and it's sent the internet into overdrive.

The Monarch-brand 'Entertainer' icecream dessert has unearthed a whole host of fans, who long for the days of the Vienetta after dinner.

On the Aldi Australia Facebook page, fans swapped memories of this classic dessert, with one shopper stating, "Reminds me of my mum. She would buy this for desert when we came for dinner" and another sharing, "Wow. My 28 year old son had to have this for a birthday cake each year after he turned 10."

If you're dubious about the potential taste matching up to the original, other comments speak highly of the flavours.

"These are awesome, tried this recently as always buy vienetta and was actually impressed by the ALDI version. It was quite creamy," commented one Aldi shopper.

Another said, "Much better than Viennetta but you have to be quick they sell out very fast. I've got one for Christmas stashed in the freezer."

So, here you have it folks, if you want to try it, head into your local store - but by all accounts, you'll have to be quick!
