Reese's Peanut Butter Eyeballs & Brach's Vampire Teeth Candy Corn: SPOOKY NEW HALLOWEEN CANDY!


It's that time of year to keep an EYEBALL out for Halloween treats! We recently discovered two NEW spooky body parts-inspired candies, Reese's Peanut Butter Eyeballs and Brach's Vampire Teeth Candy Corn.

Reese's Peanut Butter Eyeballs taste just like you'd expect them to: creamy Reese's peanut butter is enveloped in smooth, sweet milk chocolate. The texture of the chocolate is a tad waxier than classic Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, but the recognizable flavor is quintessential Halloween and the new eyeball-shaped packaging is festive, fun and would look great piled in a bowl at a Halloween-themed party.

A heap of Brach's Vampire Teeth Candy Corn would also be great for a Halloween party spread, but they unfortunately don't taste very good. The strawberry flavoring is artificial and cloying and the texture falls flat. We really wish they just tasted like regular ol' candy corn, but the bloody teeth effect is pretty cool nonetheless.

7-Eleven Hot Italian Sausage Flavored Potato Chips: MANGIA!


How'd they do it?! 7-Eleven Select's NEW Hot Italian Sausage Flavored Potato Chips really taste just like the real thing! We were super impressed with how closely the flavor of these chips resembles biting into a classic Italian sausage and peppers. From the taste of green peppers, onions and garlic to the smokey, licoricey sensation of a hot Italian sausage itself, everything flavor component is there. Not only are these chips surprisingly accurate in replicating the intended flavors, but they're also darn tasty with a nice crunch and a bold, peppery kick. We say give this exciting new snack food a try!

Beyond Meat Burger: FUTURISTIC MEATLESS MUNCHIES!


We recently visited the Worlds Fair Nano in Brooklyn, NY, a two-day festival that celebrates all things future and innovation. While searching for snacks, we were treated to a Beyond Meat burger, served by the folks over at The Economist. This plant-based, "clean meat" burger is made entirely of peas and has the effect of being cooked rare thanks to the addition of "meat juices" derived from beets. We thoroughly enjoyed it and felt that the flavor and texture were surprisingly similar to beef.

While we would personally prefer a real, all-beef burger, it was totally fun and exciting to try an example of the meat alternatives that will be shaping our culinary future. In a time when providing enough meat to feed the world's rapidly increasing population is coming into question, different kinds of meatless meat are popping up everywhere and it seems inevitable that alternative proteins will become more a part of our daily diet. In fact, it was recently revealed that Amy's Drive Thru, the country's first meat-free fast food restaurant, is getting ready to expand!

McDonald's Sriracha Mac Sauce: LIMITED EDITION LIAISON!


McDonald's is cranking up the heat with their NEW Limited Edition Sriracha Mac Sauce! Dress your McNuggets with this hot dipping sauce that takes McDonald's signature, tangy Big Mac sauce and kicks it into high gear with a surprisingly bold punch of spicy Sriracha.

We tried this latest McD's concoction on some Chicken McNuggets and instantly fell in love with the fiery, garlicky, slightly sweet flavor. If you're a Sriracha fan, run on over to your local McDonald's and try this sauce out for yourself, while supplies last!
