Over the years, Mars Chocolate North America has treated us to the classic combinations of milk chocolate and peanuts, milk chocolate and peanut butter and milk chocolate and almonds and now they are venturing into unchartered territory with their new candy bar, Snickers & Hazelnut. For this exciting snack product, Snickers is introducing the buttery taste of hazelnuts to their iconic blend of milk chocolate, peanuts, caramel and nougat.

We find it interesting that Mars has decided to make this Snickers "&" Hazelnut and keep peanuts as part of the formula. The taste of the candy bar, in effect, has a more subtle hazelnut flavor than we were expecting. Is this a cost cutting measure, or is Mars not confident that the American palate will wholly embrace the full flavor of hazelnut? While we enjoyed this new candy bar, we were hoping that it would taste more like the popular sweet European hazelnut and cocoa spread, Nutella. Snickers & Hazelnut is still a delicious and uniquely flavored candy bar nonetheless and worth trying out if you spot it.

America's fastest growing fast casual restaurant chain, Shake Shack, is cranking up the heat this fall with their limited edition Hot Chick’n sandwich.

For this spicy bird, Shake Shack slowly cooks all-natural chicken breast in a buttermilk marinade then slathers it in a house-made batter, dusts it with seasoned flour and fries it till golden crispy brown. The chicken is then dusted with a guajillo and cayenne pepper blend, nestled in a buttery potato bun and topped with tangy pickles and crunchy coleslaw.

Of all the chicken sandwiches we've recently tried, this one ranks towards the top as one of the best we've ever had! The fried chicken itself is perfection and the spice level is just enough that it doesn't overpower the delicate balance of flavors. The meat is juicy and tender inside while the generous coating is beautifully crisp and peppery. The sandwich overall has a delightful buttery finish and every ingredient works together to create a flavor and texture experience that is truly unforgettable.

We can only hope that Shake Shack makes the Hot Chick’n a regular menu item. Get yours while supplies last!

It's pumpkin spice season and Tastykake isn't one to be left out in the cold. This season, nationwide snack brand Tastykake debuts their take on the iconic fall flavor with NEW Fall Edition Pumpkin Spice Mini Donuts! In addition, they've also released more fun fall inspired products like Caramel Apple Mini Donuts and Salted Caramel Kandy Kakes!

The fine folks over at Tastykake gifted us a sampling of these exciting new products, so we tried 'em out just for you!

Pumpkin Spice Mini Donuts

Tastykake's Pumpkin Spice Mini Donuts consist of sweet pumpkin flavored cake donuts generously dusted in spiced powdered sugar. These bite-sized treats are soft and pillowy in texture and loaded with pumpkin spice flavors like nutmeg and cinnamon. They genuinely taste like fall and would go great alongside a steamy pumpkin spice latte!

Caramel Apple Mini Donuts

Tastykake's Limited Edition Caramel Apple Mini Donuts feature bite-sized apple flavored cake donuts coated in caramel flavored crunch. These miniature cake donuts are moist and fresh with a slightly chewy texture from the caramel crunch. They're tasty indeed and remind us of the classic comfort fair food invoked on the packaging.

Salted Caramel Kandy Kakes

These Fall Edition Tastykakes are probably the least "fall" of the new batch of products, but they're still delicious and a welcome member to the family. A layer of soft cake is topped with salted caramel flavored filling then slathered in chocolate flavored icing. The texture is smooth and buttery throughout and the salty/sweet flavors are in perfect harmony. We enjoyed these with a frosty diet cola and the snack experience was premium.

Tastykake's new limited edition fall products are the perfect snacks to celebrate this colorful season. We say go ahead and try 'em all!
