Carrot Cake Cookies - Aldi: Marlton, NJ

Carrot Cake Cookies - Aldi: Marlton, NJ
Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate. It seems like carrot cake is becoming a popular flavor for Easter cookies and sweets, and while I like the trend, a lot of the items have been way too sweet for my personal preferences. I like the idea behind these cookies, but that layer of white chooclate has me a bit worried.

A lot of my Aldi reviews focus on their fancier lines, like the Fit & Active or Specially Selected, but this is actually a Benton product. Which, as far as Aldi products are concerned, is more on the lower end of things. Their packaging functions well, but their designs always look cheap, and this is no exception.I wouldn't say this is a absolutely terrible design, but it's pretty bad. We have clip-art looking flowers, and default looking typefaces. It's nothing to write home about, but it works.

Inside there's generous amount of cookies, and they smell sweet, slightly spiced, and kind of oatmeal-y.

The cookie may not be the prettiest, but they smell appetizing. I grabbed a big glass of milk and took a bite.

Sadly, the taste is pretty underwhelming.

The cookie has a soft bite to it, a crumbly texture, and a prominent blend of the carrot cake spices, but the spices fade pretty quickly, and that white chocolate bottom over sweetens everything. I gotta say, this is an Aldi product I'm pretty disappointed in. There's nothing really wrong with it, but the cookie is way too bland, and a bit dry without milk, and that c"white chocolate" is waxy and sweet. I can't say I'm a fan of this one, and I'm happy that I'll have family coming over in a few hours to pawn these off on, share these with.

If you see these on clearance next week, I'd recommend leaving them on the shelf.
