Chocolate Hello Panda Cookies at Aldi
Hello Panda Cookies are a unique little treat and are very popular with people who have tried them. These little bite-sized treats have a crunchy cookie shell and a chocolate creme center. They come in multiple flavors but chocolate is the most popular and that is the you will find in the Aldi Finds aisle. I have purchased these from Aldi in years past so I know it is a product they carry semi-regularly, but only for a limited time. This year Aldi is selling a 6 ounce box that includes 8 bags of cookies for just $3.29. Each bag contains 0.75 ounce (21 grams) of cookies. This little cookies are favorites of kids because of the great taste plus they have a little panda drawn on each cookie.

Where Is the Best Place to Buy Hello Panda?
If you like chocolate and cookies then these are worth giving a try. So the questions is: should you buy from Aldi or somewhere else? If you haven’t tried Hello Panda in the past the size of Aldi’s package is about right. It is big enough that you will be able to try them a few times but cheap enough that it is not a big deal if you don’t like them.
Aldi is selling these cookies for $3.29 for 6 oz (in 2022) which comes out to about $0.55 per ounce. Most options on Amazon are selling for $0.70+ per ounce and you need to buy fairly large packages. The best price I found was $0.64/ounce with this six pack of 7 ounce bags. That is $26.88 worth of cookies at the time of this writing and quite a bit to spend just to try them out. If you already know you like them and can’t find them at Aldi anymore it may be your best option. Buying online also gives you the option of trying some of their other flavors.

They are not gluten free as they contain wheat.
