This Halloween I was fortunate enough to try some newly introduced 2014 sugary sweet Halloween candies and sugar stuff and wanted to review them all on my blog like every single other person does during this season!
Franken Berry cereal- I do believe that I am the last person on earth to ever try this cereal. It has been around for years but for some reason I always went for the Count Chocula and could care less about the Boo Berry or Franken Berry. I am really disappointed in my review of this because I did expect to really enjoy it a lot! It's pink and it has marshmallows and is strawberry! But this year I picked up a box and can honestly say that I will probably never pick up another box again. I know that is the most un-Halloween thing to say and most people would not dare diss the Monster cereals of the season, but I just could not get into Frankenberry. It tasted very artificial. That's the only term I can come up with for this, strawberry artificial cereal. I still have half a box left so maybe I will eventually change my mind, but it's not looking too good for Mr. Franken.
Chobani Pumpkin Spice- I dig Chobani yogurt. I also dig Yoplait. I really like both of them equally. Chobani actually had pumpkin as one of the ingredients in the yogurt so that's pretty neat considering most pumpkin spice things usually don't have any trace of pumpkin in the ingredients what so ever. It was pretty good although I think I'll stick with straight up orange yogurt from now until the end of time.
Hershey's Candy Corn Bars- I love candy corn and I love white chocolate. What could possibly be better than combining the two together in a small Hershey bar of deliciousness?!?!? I hate to say it but I was not a huge fan. It tasted very waxy and was overly sweet and WAXY. SO MUCH WAX. I couldn't really taste the white chocolate because the sweetness of the sugar and wax overpowered the chocolate in my mouth! I'm glad I tried this but if I was anyone else I would skip this and pick up a bag of real candy corn, preferably the Brach's version.
Starburst Candy Corn- This was probably my least favorite out of all the candies that I tried. It just tasted like fruity wax which is actually a big improvement over the candy corn bars. Stick to Easter, Starburst.
Candy Apple M&M's- Note to readers; these are CANDY apple not CARAMEL apple as I thought they would be after biting into one. These tasted pretty sweet and apple-y. Not terrible but not the best either.
Pumpkin Spice M&M's- These are an ok M&M but they are definitely not my favorite. I'm not sure how I would describe the flavor but "pumpkin spice" would not be it. These M&Ms are probably the fattest M&Ms I've ever seen in my life, but in this case the quantity does not match the quality considering these are pretty meh.
Candy Corn M&Ms- These were the best and if they don't sell them next Halloween I will throw a fit. Apparently you can even make cookies with them! I shall have to try that recipe and report back!
Pumpkin Spice Hershey's Kisses- At first I really didn't like these. But after trying a few a second time I realized that they aren't half bad. Two thumbs up for the Kisses!
Caramel Apple Oreos- Good ole Oreo and their craaaazy flavor varieties! These cookies are brown and lime green colored in the middle aka caramel apple colored and they have a pretty good taste. I would add the cookie part to it though because the cream on it's own just didn't do it for me.
Caramel Apple Milky Way- These are the best things ever created and if you don't agree then you are absolutely wrong. They are soooo good! You need to try some. Right now. Go to the store, pick up a bag and love them. If you don't love them give them to me because you are undeserving of such a lovely thing.
