Candy Corn Oreos

Happy Fall y'all!  No sweets will get you more in the fall mood than Candy Corn, which is why I was so excited to see Candy Corn Oreos hit the shelves at Target!  I had heard about these last year but when I went to buy them, they were all sold out.  This year, I made sure to get them early.  As soon as I saw the bright yellow bag with big pieces of Candy Corn depicted on the wrapper, I was hooked.

As soon as I opened the bag of Oreos, I smelled Candy Corn.  The golden cookies were packed with half orange and half yellow filling and I was ready for a bite.  They were definitely very sweet, much sweeter than a regular Oreo.  At first bite, it tasted like I was eating a shortbread Chessman cookie mixed with Candy Corn.  Then, after a few more bites, I realized the Candy Corn flavor was totally just in my head and what they really tasted like were DUNKAROOS with vanilla frosting!   Exactly like them!  Then I just pictured myself eating the little Kangaroo shaped cookies and having the time of my life dipping them into the pool of frosting.  I loved Dunkaroos so I loved these cookies as well.  I do think it would have been cool to have the regular black cookies instead of the golden color to really bring out the Halloween colors.  Remember, orange is the new black! :)

The inside was definitely creamy and complimented the crunchy cookie very well.  Talk about a perfect balance.  The creamy inside just reminded me of licking the frosting off of a knife that's used to frost cupcakes.  It's so smooth and delicious and good until the last drop!

I'd definitely suggest trying these cookies because:

1. It will put you in the Halloween spirit
2. They're limited edition
3. They're super sweet and delectable

Happy Halloween! Boo!!!

Brookside Dark Chocolate Acai Blueberry

Today, I decided to try these Dark Chocolate Acai with Blueberry morsels after trying and loving the Pomegranate flavored ones.  And let me tell you, once you pop the fun don't stop!  

The Dark Chocolate Acai with Blueberry are the perfect on the go snack.  You can pop them in your mouth anytime you're yearning for something sweet!  As the package says, they are made of dark chocolate which makes each bite super rich and sweet.  As soon as you eat one, they immediately melt in your mouth.  While consuming, you'll notice how soft and smooth they actually are.  They're slightly chewy and the dark chocolate flavor definitely overpowers the blueberry taste.  

The blueberry flavor inside tastes like blueberry juice.  While indulging into each soft bite, you'll chomp until it melts away into your mouth and provides your taste buds with a delectable blueberry aftertaste.  They're also filled with antioxidants!  So there's no way you can eat just one!  These are definitely delicious but I do think I prefer the Dark Chocolate Pomegranate over the Blueberry flavor.  You know what they say, chocolate covered anything is delicious!  So go ahead and check these out you candy lovers!

Jolly Rancher Bites

I think I may have found my new favorite candy.  Want to know what it is? Jolly Rancher Bites!  I've always loved Jolly Ranchers, especially the Watermelon and Lemon Flavors.  When I saw the new Jolly Rancher Bites, a delicious mix of gummy sour candy and Jolly Ranchers, I was in love!  My mouth is watering just writing this because they are just THAT good!

First of all, they were soft, not too sticky and biting into them, they were juicy, and chewy.  They came in Watermelon and Green Apple flavors.  As soon as you bit into both, and chewed it for a few, there was a burst of the Jolly Rancher flavor gushing out like a Gusher.  Both the Watermelon and Green Apple bites both had that burst of the beloved Jolly Rancher taste and they were so delicious.  

The Watermelon was a pinkish/red color and the Green Apple was a mint green.  Both tasted like a Blow Pop as well, with a bubblegum flavor.  They were both sweet at first bite, then slightly sour if you have two at a time, then the moment you add one more in the mix, it's SO sour. SO good!  They both had an amazing aftertaste, and were both delicious.  Having one of each flavor mixes well together, but I preferred keeping the flavors separate and doubling down on the same flavor, one at a time.  

If I had to pick, I'd say the Watermelon was my favorite flavor, but they were both so delicious, it's such a close race.  If you love Jolly Ranchers, love Sour Patch Kids, love Gushers, love Blow Pops, you will looooove these Jolly Rancher Bites.  Give me more!!!
