Okay - this is the last Halloween post. (If there was election candy, I'd be all over that, but alas, no such luck.)
Most of the candy makers just repackaged their candy in Halloween wrappers - something you all know bugs the heck out of me and seems like a cop out. I found these in TJ Maxx:
Chips Ahoy brought out some new Halloween cookies! Yay!
These, however, are delish:
See all that great orange filling? These are double stuff thickness - love them!! And look at the cute designs:
Even Pop-Tarts came up with a Halloween design:
But the flavor isn't bad - like chocolate cookie dough. So appearance is bad, but taste is great!
I'm not sure if these are special for Halloween or not, but I've never seen them before and there is a mention of a Halloween promotion in the right hand corner:
Now look at them on the box - pretty cool. Look at them in real life - ewww!
At least they are cream filled, right? Um - no. Not good. Weird taste. Boo. (And not in a ghostly way.)
Harry and David comes through with these adorable mini iced cookies:
And is that the Salvador Dali pumpkin? Must be a mustache.
These are in Target - witches' hats, pumpkins, and ghosts:
They are shortbread covered in white icing with orange and black sprinkles. And they, too, are delicious. And addictive. I think they are laced with crack.
I found these in TJ Maxx too. TJ Maxx has some cool treats, but you have to dig through the chaos. These are Too Good Gourmet's Candy Shortbread Cookies:
OMG! They are GREAT! Delicious shortbread cookies with loads of candy coated chocolate bits.
So, not only did I eat too much candy this Halloween season, I ate way too many cookies and Pop Tarts. But what a great adventure! I am proud of the bakers and candy companies who went to the trouble of bringing us something new - woohoo! I am saddened by the apparent demise of the mini (70 calorie) Reese's Pumpkin. But loved the new Hershey's caramel apples Kisses. When one door closes, another opens. ; )
Have a great week!! And don't forget to vote!
