Appetitos Cream Cheese Wontons

Whenever we order Chinese American takeout, we always get crab rangoon. Those crispy fried wrappers filled with cream cheese and bits of crab are hard to resist, and they’re the perfect complement to a plate of mandarin orange chicken and fried rice.

Good crab rangoon is hard to find in grocery stores. With some exceptions, I’m more likely to find cream cheese wontons rather than crab rangoon in stores. But when restaurant takeout isn’t in the budget, sometimes we make do with cream cheese wontons.

Aldi recently sold cream cheese wontons as a limited-time special. Of course I had to get them to try at home.

Appetitos Cream Cheese Wontons

Appetitos Cream Cheese Wontons are an Aldi Find, so they’re only in stores for a short time. Each store gets one shipment, and after that sells out, they’re gone unless Aldi decides to bring them back later. You can’t order these online if they’re not in stock at your local store.

These cost $3.69 for a 6-ounce package at the time of publication. That’s about 62 cents per ounce. With two servings per package, that comes out to about $1.85 per serving.

If you’re looking out for allergens, these contain wheat, milk, and eggs.

Ingredients are: wrapper (bleached wheat flour, water, corn starch, salt, preservatives [ascorbic acid]), cream cheese (pasteurized cultured milk and cream, salt, stabilizers [guar gum and carob bean gum]), canola and/or sunflower oil, sour cream (cultured cream), water, chives, heavy cream (cream and milk), corn starch, salt, sugar, eggs, garlic powder, and onion powder.

Keep these frozen until you’re ready to bake them. The box has directions for cooking these from frozen in a conventional oven or in an air fryer.

To bake in the oven, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place frozen pieces one inch apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place on the center rack in the oven. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until fully cooked.

To air fry, preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees. Place frozen pieces in a single layer 1/2 inch apart on the air fryer tray. Cook for 5-10 minutes or until fully cooked.

Ready to serve after air frying.

I opted to cook these in my air fryer. I kept a close eye on them while they cooked, since the suggested 5-10-minute cook time seems like a broad range. They were done after about 6 minutes.

I was surprised at how good these taste. They’re some of the best, most flavorful cream cheese wontons I’ve tried. The wrappers come out crisp and flaky, while the cream cheese filling is plentiful and has a nice hint of chive flavor. These didn’t last long, and I’d absolutely buy them again.

The Verdict:

Appetitos Cream Cheese Wontons feature crispy wontons filled with flavorful cream cheese with just a bit of chives. These are very good for grocery store cream cheese wontons, and they cook to perfection in the air fryer. Highly recommended.
