Let’s chat about calzones, shall we? Now, don’t get us wrong, we’re all for convenience, but there are times when we’d rather pass on certain items. Take, for instance, Aldi’s Mama Cozzi’s Philly Cheese Steak Calzone.

Sure, it’s a calzone, and the idea of a piping hot, cheesy, meaty pocket of goodness sounds appealing. But when it comes to the frozen aisle, our taste buds have higher hopes. We gave it a try, and while it’s not terrible, it’s not exactly an Italian masterpiece either.

The oven instructions are a bit vague on the temperature, which is a tad puzzling. And if you’re in a hurry, the microwave option is there, but let’s be honest, it won’t transport you to the streets of Philly.

Now, let’s talk nutrition. It’s got a bit of a sodium situation going on, which might leave you feeling a bit parched. And it’s worth mentioning that this calzone is supposed to be two servings. So, while the calorie and fat numbers seem okay at first glance, they can quickly add up.

In a pinch, the Mama Cozzi’s Philly Cheese Steak Calzone might do the trick. But if you’re craving the real deal, a cozy Italian restaurant might be your best bet. Remember, it’s all about balance!

Verdict: NAY!
