Aldi Review: Benton’s Maple Leaf Cream Cookies

Rating: Favorite!!
How Do I Rate?

Wowsers. I haven’t seen many other national brand cookies shaped like a leaf claiming to be maple leaf cream cookies, so I don’t know what to compare these cookies to. However, they are definetely a seasonal favorite for now on. I tried these over the weekend at a friend’s house and they were so good. The cookie is a decent sized cookie and the cream is significant. So, you can have just one or two and feel like you’ve had plenty. They tasted very fresh, and not cheap or stale. The cream had this maple flavor that was so amazing. We talked about how they could be called “pancake cookies” because they tasted like a mapley pancake in a cookie form. Very good, very tasty. The sweetness and the maple flavors of the cookie were not overpowering either but were just enough strength for the flavor. I would recommend trying these for yourself. If you like pancakes, I would guess most of you would really like these cookies. Yum!

    I found these at Aldi’s (CT) in December 2014 and early January 2015, but they were listed as a ‘Seasonal Item’ and later in January were no longer on the shelf. They were very good, and made with real maple syrup.

      I love these too Wendy. Thanks for sharing your experience! They have the best smell too. Aldi should make a candle of that scent!

    I went to Aldi and was so bummed when they weren’t on the shelf and found out the have been discontinued! Those cookies are great and a huge reason why I went to Aldi. Please bring them back!

    Was recently at an Aldi, (none near where I live), and the person checking me out told me to buy some that they are being discontinued. What a shame. If I had know how good they are I would have purchased more.

    They are terrific!
