Sundae Shoppe Lepre-Cones

For several years now, Aldi has sold a wide variety of limited-edition specialty Sundae Shoppe ice cream cones with numerous themes. The types of cones have included mermaids, unicorns, outer space, roses, and more. I’ve always loved both their taste and presentation, so it’s pretty obvious why I’m reviewing these cones today.

The Sundae Shoppe Lepre-Cones are $3.99 at the time of publication for a 17.6-ounce box that contains four cones, so it’s a dollar per cone. In the last few years, the price for these types of cones at Aldi has increased by around 50 cents. Since these are novelty cones, obviously you’re going to pay more for them than, say, a regular box of drumsticks.

They’re an Aldi Find, which means they’re in stores for a limited time, and once they’re gone, they’re gone. Aldi doesn’t do online ordering for products that aren’t currently stocked at your store.

As the name suggests, these are St. Patrick’s Day themed cones, and with the holiday just around the corner, these could be a fun way to celebrate. The box describes them as “mint and cocoa flavored frozen desserts in a wafer cone with a cocoa flavored coating and topped with cookie crumbles.” Mint isn’t usually my go-to flavor when it comes to ice cream, but I understand why they did it.

As we’ve come to find out, all of the Sundae Shoppe novelty cones Aldi rotates into its freezer aisle are a product of Slovenia, and they’re made by a company called Leone. The company makes a lot of different novelty ice cream products and partners with Aldi regularly.

Each cone is one serving, and each cone has 190 calories, 9g of total fat, 7g of saturated fat, 25g of total carbohydrates, 15g of total sugars, and 13g of added sugars.

These contain or may contain a lot of allergens. They contain milk, wheat, and soy, and they might contain eggs, tree nuts, and peanuts.

One of the coolest parts of these types of cones is the way they’re packaged. There’s foil wrapped around the cone, and a clear plastic dome around the top, which protects the ice cream’s delicate swirled design. You do have to be careful when unwrapping everything, especially if you have younger children opening them.

After trying these, they certainly aren’t my favorite of all the Sundae Shop novelty cones, but that doesn’t mean they were bad, and my family enjoyed them. As I said earlier, I’m not the biggest mint fan, but the chocolate was good, and it helps make the mint taste more subtle. Most of these kinds of cones have sprinkles or crumbs of some sort on top, and these had Oreo-like crumbles on top that were surprisingly good. There’s a layer of chocolate around the inside of the cone as well.

The Verdict:

The Sundae Shoppe Lepre-Cones aren’t my favorite in this ice cream cone line, but they are pretty good. I’ve never been disappointed with any of these cones, and these would be a fun and unique way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

  1. $.39/package, marked down further from $.99 on 3/26 at an innercity store in Cleveland. Great buy.

  2. They sold out quickly at my local store. They had a lot last weekend, but completely gone today. We enjoyed them.
