Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Rolls, reviewed

Trader Joe's Pumpkin Rolls with Pumpkin Spice Frosting

Pumpkin can be found just about everywhere in October, and that includes the refrigerated case at Trader Joe’s, where I recently spotted a new seasonal product: Pumpkin Rolls with Pumpkin Spice Icing. The rolls came in the same sort of cardboard tube that you find refrigerated biscuts and crescent rolls packaged in, but with the promise of pumpkin spice – which made them sound like ...

Every year for the past three years or so, Trader Joe’s has stocked its shelves with delicious Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels.

Since caramel and apples are such a good match, it’s not surprising that I’m not the only one who decided ... Read More »

Betty Crocker Maple Bacon Frosting

There are all kinds of seasonal candies on the market, but candies aren’t the only products that get a seasonal twist. Almost everything in the baking aisle – from sprinkles to cake mixes – changes to suit the seasons and give you some alternatives to plain vanilla and rainbow sprinkles for every time of year.

Jif Whips S'mores, reviewed

I am a huge s’mores fan. Not only do I enjoy classic campfire s’mores, but I enjoy s’mores themed treats – from pancakes to bread pudding and can’t resist tasting s’mores themed goodies. Jif Whips S’mores caught my eye a couple of weeks ago when I was shopping. It’s a limited edition s’mores flavored whipped peanut butter, which means that it has the flavor of both s’mores ... Read More »
