Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino Crème: MAGIC IS REAL!


"Made with only the finest rainbows." -- Starbucks

Starbucks is celebrating sparkles and dreams with their NEW, super-rare limited edition Unicorn Frappuccino! For this ethereal concoction, mango crème Frappuccino is blended with colorful, mystical powders, topped with heavenly whipped cream and sprinkled with sour pink and blue fairy dust. As you drink and stir the enchanting elixir, the colors transform from purple to pink and the flavors change from sweet and creamy to sour and tart. We were lucky enough to nab one and it really was an otherworldly experience!

Magic really is real at Starbucks, but they've only harvested enough unicorns for a 5-day supply starting today. So grab your very own Unicorn Frappuccino before they're extinct forever!

Strawberry Nut M&M's: BERRY PATCH BOMB!


Mars is playing the flavor game again with its NEW springtime confectionery, Limited Edition Strawberry Nut M&M's!

Regular Peanut M&M's is one of our favorite candies so we were pumped to try a new variety. We had fantasies of tasting a gooey peanut butter and jelly sammy with this new flavor, but the first bite of Strawberry Nut M&M's was nothing like that. Instead we found the strawberry flavoring to be very artificial and bordering on cloying. While we appreciate the attempt to create an amusing new variety, and the new strawberry patch inspired colors are fun for sure, we were left wishing we had some good ol' fashioned regular Peanut M&M's.

We say skip these "berry" flavored bombs and stick with the original.

Dunkin' Donuts Coconut Crème Pie Iced Coffee: BLOOMIN' TASTE BUDS!


We're not the biggest coffee drinkers. When we do indulge, we love our joe light 'n' sweet and over ice so we were excited to learn that Dunkin' Donuts is celebrating spring with a NEW Coconut Crème Pie Iced Coffee. We ran over to our local Dunkin' to give it a go.

The first sip of our Coconut Crème Pie Iced Coffee (with milk) was the best with a sweet and creamy taste combination of coconut, vanilla and pie crust. Overall, Dunkin's rich and nutty brew is elevated by the addition of coconut crème pie flavor. The taste experience isn't artificial as we feared it might be, and it's the perfect accompaniment to Dunkin's returning Spring Flowers Donut.

If you're a fan of coconut, dive into this dreamy drink!

Baked KitKat: JAPANESE BUTTER COOKIE CANDY CRUNCH!


It's the KitKat from Japan you can cook!

With Baked KitKat, you can bring the sweet thrills of a Japanese bakery directly to your kitchen! We discovered this curious snack food product at an M2M convenience store in NYC and were instantly drawn into the delectable image of a seemingly baked white KitKat on the cover of the packaging. We rushed it home only to discover that there were some sort of toaster oven cooking instructions on the back that were entirely in Japanese! Since we can not read Japanese (and we do not have a toaster oven), we decided to try and figure it out on our own. After a few trials, we found a method that worked beautifully using our home convection oven!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Unwrap your Baked KitKats (do NOT attempt with other KitKat varieties) and place them on a nonstick cookie sheet. Place the sheet in the center of your oven and bake for about 7 minutes or until the bottom edges of your Baked KitKats turn golden brown. Cool for a few minutes and enjoy! While we found this method to work well, we can imagine that cooking them in a toaster oven would yield even better results. Watch the video below to see how!

We reckon the flavor of these particular Baked KitKats was eggnog. They tasted like a scrumptious butter cookie loaded with rum! The texture was flaky with a nice caramelized, crunchy bottom. We ate them with some coconut ice cream and the combination of flavors was unreal.

Since these KitKats are formulated to be cooked, we weren't sure if we could eat them "raw." But we did and they're actually really good uncooked as well with the same rum butter flavor and a pleasant, gritty sugar texture.


If you see them, try these crazy candies out!

Available at Asian specialty markets.

McDonald's Chicken McGriddles: CHICKEN FOR BREAKFAST!


Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to McDonald's for breakfast!

McD's has just uncaged their take on classic chicken 'n' waffles with their NEW Chicken McGriddles! A generous peppery fried chicken patty is nestled between two maple-infused, pillowy McGriddles. We tried this hot new bird and went cuckoo for the flavor combination of spicy, savory chicken with sweet, buttery pancakes. 

Chicken McGriddles are available ALL DAY and are only 390 calories, making this new item the ultimate snack food. We're lovin' it!
