Every week during the fall, Aldi rolls out new decorations and pumpkin-themed food. That makes this a fun time to browse the favorite middle aisle, where everything from pumpkin spice coffee to maple sandwich cookies to inflatable spiders for your yard abound.
My family has enjoyed trying some of the seasonal cookies at Aldi this year, such as the caramel apple crémes that were on shelves for a short time recently. So we were eager to taste the latest fall sandwich cookie to show up this season: pumpkin spice créme cookies.
Benton’s Pumpkin Spice Flavored Créme Cookies cost $1.99 for a 10.5-oz. box at the time of publication.
These are an Aldi Find (Special Buy), which means they’re only in stores for a short time. Once they sell out, they’re gone until next fall.
These cookies are kosher and are a product of Canada.
They’re cookies, so they’re not exactly a health food. Sugar is their primary ingredient, but they do also contain pumpkin puree and pumpkin powder, along with cinnamon, vanilla bean seeds, and nutmeg.
If you’re avoiding allergens, these contain wheat and soy. They may contain milk, eggs, and coconut.
One box contains about 11 two-cookie servings, which comes out to about 22 cookies per box or about 9 cents per cookie.
One two-cookie serving has 140 calories, 6 grams of total fat (8% DV), 3 grams of saturated fat (15% DV), 21 grams of total carbohydrates (8% DV), and 12 grams of added sugars.
These cookies are crisp and have plenty of pumpkin spice flavor, but they’re not as generous with the créme filling compared to some of Aldi’s other fall-themed sandwich cookies.
While these cookies are good, they’re not my family’s favorite among all of the fall-flavored cookies Aldi has sold this year. The Maple Leaf Crémes are our top pick, followed by the Caramel Apple Crémes, and then these Pumpkin Spice ones.
Benton’s Pumpkin Spice Flavored Créme Cookies contain real pumpkin, are crisp, and have the classic cinnamon and nutmeg flavors of fall. They’re not our favorite fall cookies at Aldi, but they’re not a bad option if you want to add a little pumpkin spice to your life.
