Aldi often imitates name-brand foods and sells them at a lower cost. Sometimes the imitations work really well, as is the case with Aldi’s knockoff version of name-brand Oreo cookies. I recently picked up a package of Aldi “Oreos” when one of my kids wanted to make Black Forest ice cream sundaes as a treat.
Benton’s Double Filled Chocolate Sandwich Cookies are $1.55 for a 15.35-oz. package at the time of publication. A similar-sized package of Double Stuf Oreos cost $2.99 at Target and $2.83 at Walmart at the time of publication.
Aldi also sells more traditional Benton’s Chocolate Sandwich Cookies without the “double” filling, but why go for less when you can get more? The Double Filled Chocolate Sandwich Cookies contain about 15 two-cookie servings per package. The package states they’re “made with real cocoa” and “great for dipping.”
Each two-cookie serving has 140 calories, 6 grams of total fat (8% of your daily value), 2.5 grams of saturated fat (13% DV), 0 mg of cholesterol, 105 mg of sodium (5% DV), 20 grams of total carbohydrates (7% DV), 12 grams of added sugars (24% DV), and 1 gram of protein.
The primary ingredients are sugar and unbleached enriched flour. They also contain cocoa (processed with alkali) and high fructose corn syrup. The cookies contain soy and wheat, and they may contain eggs, milk, tree nuts (pecans, almonds, and coconut), and peanuts.
It’s no surprise: these are certainly not health foods, but they taste every bit as good as the more expensive name-brand Oreo cookies. These are pretty much the same as Double Stuf Oreos, with extra cream filling between the two crispy chocolate cookie layers. The Aldi cookies are excellent for snacking, with a generous extra amount of cream filling that is soft and sweet. These cookies also worked well crushed and served in our Black Forest ice cream sundae dessert.
Aldi’s Benton’s Double Filled Chocolate Sandwich Cookies are like Double Stuf Oreo cookies. They taste great and are practically indistinguishable from Oreos. Highly recommended.
