Most Americans are familiar with Neapolitan ice cream. It’s sold in a carton with three flavors — usually chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry — packed side by side in a striped formation. It’s an ice cream option that’s been around for a while, and it’s a good choice if you aren’t sure what flavor you want. Why not get three flavors that all complement each other?
While Aldi sells several ice cream flavors, they do not typically sell Neapolitan ice cream. However, for a limited time this month, you can get sandwich cookies inspired by the striped frozen confection.
Benton’s Neapolitan Creme Filled Cookies cost $1.99 for a 10.5-ounce box at the time of publication. These consist of chocolate and vanilla cookies with a strawberry cream filling. (As a bonus, the filing actually has real dried strawberries.)
These cookies are a product of Canada and are kosher.
Ingredients are: enriched wheat flour, sugar, canola oil, palm oil, cocoa powder, invert sugar syrup, wheat starch, sodium bicarbonate, salt, natural flavors, dried strawberry, and soy lecithin.
If you’re watching out for allergens, these contain wheat and soy. They may contain milk, egg, and coconut.
There are about 12 servings per container, and a two-cookie serving (26 grams) netting you 120 calories, 5 grams of total fat (6% DV), 1 gram of saturated fat (5% DV), no cholesterol, 75 mg of sodium (3% DV), 19 grams of total carbohydrates (7% DV), 1 gram of dietary fiber (4% DV), 9 grams of added sugars (18% DV), and 1 gram of protein.
These were interesting. Some family members loved the flavor combination. Others thought the cookies were all right but wouldn’t necessarily buy them repeatedly. The package says these cookies are “great for dipping,” although we just ate them straight up without any milk. They are crispy on the outside with a decent amount of filling, but they’re not double-stuffed Oreos or anything like that. Overall, these were a fun novelty to try.
Benton’s Neapolitan Creme Filled Cookies feature the classic three flavors found in Neapolitan ice cream: chocolate and vanilla cookies with a strawberry cream filling. The filling even contains real dried strawberries. If you’re a fan of Neapolitan ice cream or are just looking for a different kind of sweet treat to try, these are worth considering.
