Whoa... They Have What?

 I don't often get excited about packaged food...  Mostly because I can make the same thing with real food and less of that unpronounceable mish mash... But in the last few days, I've stumbled upon some new fall foods I MUST try!  Don't worry, I promise to share.  :)

First of all, my dear friend Natalie told me about these White Chocolate Candy Corn M&Ms... They're sold exclusively at Walmart... Which I also don't frequent.  In fact I had to Google a location for a Walmart in Des Moines.  Alas, they didn't have any.  And when I asked the friendly Walmart staff member, she said, "I don't know... did you look in the candy isle?  Well then we don't have them..."
 Then, I was unassumingly checking Facebook when a little add popped up!  for Chex Mix Muddy Buddies!  Aka Puppy Chow!  Who knew Chex Mix made puppy chow...  Not me.  
Actually, one time I got an especially disgusting flavor of Chex Mix and penned a letter email to let them know what a mistake it was.  They promptly sent me coupons to try another flavor.  Wish they had these back then! 
AND THEN, I was reading a blog and found these puppies...  Trader Joe's S'mores Ice Cream Sandwiches.  I mean, COME ON.  Graham crackers with marshmallow-chocolate swirl gelato and milk chocolate flakes!  If it were me I'd mix in some charred mallow.  mmm.
 And then there are the old standbys that come around this time every year...  
Pumpkin Pie Blizzards!  Gotta have at least one.  It's like the Shamrock Shake... Totally wrong, but seasonally appropriate. 
AND Halloween Oreos.  For some reason the orange double stuff tastes better than white...  
I don't even really like Oreos... Call me crazy. 


  1. im also not sure why my name is showing up as my dog's name...he's too smart!

  2. I saw limited edition pumpkin pie Pop Tarts in Target today. Passed them up... but may have to go back and get them after all. After all, they are limited edition!
