These are pretty good cookies. There’s a nice mint chocolate center sandwiched between two cookies. I suppose the nearest comparison would be to a Pepperidge Farms Milano. This cookie is firmer than the Milano. It’s not as dainty.  While this may not be 100% as good as a Milano, it’s still good enough to eat the whole bag.  And it will save a little money over a Milano.

Calories  170 per 2 cookies

Price – $1.99 per bag (12 cookies)

ALDI – Belmont Dutch Apple Crumb Pie – Food Review

ALDI, Belmont, Dutch Apple Crumb Pie, review, calories, price, nutritionJanuary 2, 2017

Crumby, Crumbly, Caramba!

This is something that’s been in our freezer since around Thanksgiving.  Unfortunately, ALDI only seems to stock their fruit pies for the year-end holidays.  So you may need to wait for this to show up again.  When it does make its appearance again, this is a good one.

The “crust” is what makes this pie.  There are plenty of crumbs that cook up just perfectly in the oven.  This crust is nothing like the usual freezer pie crust that tends to be somewhat industrial.  Even the bottom of this crust is crispy and crumbly, tending to break into pieces as it’s extracted from the pie pan.

Calories  320 per slice,  9 slices per pie

Price – lost receipt, probably around $5
