Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Salted Caramels

Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Salted Caramels

It’s fall, and here in the U.S., that means pumpkin-flavored EVERYTHING. Seriously, Trader Joe’s October Fearless Flyer is about 90% pumpkin stuff. One of their seasonal pumpkin products includes these Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Salted Caramels. The box described the caramels as “dark chocolate with a smooth pumpkin spiced caramel filling sprinkled with real Hawaiian sea salt.”…

Peanut Hottie

Howdy! I’m Patty, a professor of Psychological Sciences at a small college in the midwest. Some important background information: I’m absolutely obsessed with peanut butter. It’s gotten to the point where I can’t keep any sort of nut butter in the house, or I’ll enter into a nut-butter-induced-fugue-state…within a few hours, the nut butter will…

Haribo Bärchen-Pärchen - Review

Haribo Bärchen-Pärchen [Review + Meaning!]

This is the second bag of Haribo gummies that I bought while in Switzerland.

Nestle FruTips – Chinese Assortment

On Monday, I reviewed the mango, grapefruit, and lychee FruTips that I bought in China. Today, I’ll review their regular flavor assortment. The regular FruTips were the same size and texture as their specialized flavor counterparts, and they also contained lychee flavored jellies (white). You can refer to Monday’s review for my notes on texture…

Everyburger

This box of Everyburger was an impulse buy at my local Asian grocery store. I couldn’t read a word on the package besides “Everyburger”, but the box was shelved with other chocolate+cookie treats, so I assumed that these were some sort of chocolates+cookies shaped to look like hamburgers. Fortunately, my assumption was correct, and I…
