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!
