Seasonal Treats and Flavors

Alas, I’m talking about the purchased kind.  As much as I would like to be baking, I have apples to turn into applesauce, an eight-year-old whose tummy still hurts, and a baby who has started clawing desperately at her ear again.  (Not to mention various children up in the night most nights.)  I just don’t have much in me, you know?  I still have to grocery shop, though, and I’ve become incapable of passing by a new flavor of something we like.  Without further ado, then–here’s the rundown thus far!

Pumpkin Spice Mini-Wheats:  An all-around hit.  The kids enjoy them and I think they’re pretty good–and they actually have them at Costco as well as Target!

Pumpkin Spice Candy Corn:  We’re divided on this one.  I think they’re a little strong in a slightly chemically kind of way, but my kids and our carpool friends mostly enjoy them.

Pumpkin Spice (Golden) Oreos:  Surprisingly tasty, being not too strong yet not too bland.  Sold in a criminally small package for being the regular Oreo price, though.

Fruit Cremes Candy Corn (just pretend there’s an accent over that first “e”):  Weirdly addicting.  I generally don’t enjoy citrus-flavored candy (for me, it tends to be the real thing or nothing), but the Lemon Creme Meringue is good, and I can even handle the Orange Creme.  Strawberries, raspberries, and peaches and creme round out the flavors.  Tasty!

Has anyone out there tried the fall M&M flavors?  Feel free to comment and add to the review.  As a public service, of course!
