Hostess Chocolate Peanut Butter Twinkies: NUTS FOR CAKE!


We love everything chocolate with peanut butter so we were especially excited to try out NEW Hostess Chocolate Peanut Butter Twinkies. For this latest Hostess variety, chocolate cake is stuffed with creamy peanut butter filling.

Upon opening the package, the Twinkie had a nice aroma that reminded us of brownies. The cake itself was supremely moist and spongy with a rich chocolate flavor. The Twinkie overall tasted very creamy and chocolaty but we couldn't decipher hardly any peanut butter flavor in the filling. We tried the filling on its own and there was definitely the taste of peanut butter, but when eaten with the cake, chocolate was the dominant flavor and the peanut butter was somewhat lost. Although we wish there were more peanut butter notes, this new snack food product is scrumptious in both flavor and texture and we would certainly eat it again.


SNAX TIP!
Try your Chocolate Peanut Butter Twinkies fresh from the fridge. Coolin' 'em down gives 'em a richer, more dense consistency!

Popeyes Cheddar Biscuit Butterfly Shrimp: FANTAIL FANTASY!


Watch out Red Lobster, Popeyes is flooding the docks this summer with their NEW Cheddar Biscuit Butterfly Shrimp. We recently taste tested them and they just about blew us out of the water!

For this new variety, fantailed shrimp are dredged in a cheddar biscuit flavored batter then fried to golden perfection. These crunchy critters are packed with scrumptious cheddar and garlic flavor and taste even better when dunked in the accompanying Ghost Pepper Jelly dipping sauce, which provides a tasty lil kick of sweet heat.

We say go ahead and give Popeyes Cheddar Biscuit Butterfly Shrimp a try, and make sure you grab a combo which comes with a buttery biscuit, choice of side and a frosty drink. Happy fishin'!

TASTYKAKE Debuts NEW Mini Donuts and Summer Flavors!

Summer sure is lookin' super sweet with Tastykake's Summer Edition snacks! Since 1914, Tastykake has been baking up some of America's best snack cakes and this season they are continuing the tradition with NEW Birthday Kake Mini Donuts, Blueberry Mini Donuts, Orange Kreme Kandy Kakes and Blueberry Sweet Rolls!

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

Birthday Kake Mini Donuts & Blueberry Mini Donuts

Tastykake's Limited Edition Birthday Kake Mini Donuts feature bite-sized birthday cake flavored donuts coated in colorful confetti crunch. These miniature cake donuts are moist, fresh and a little chewy with a nice bite from the multicolored crunch. We didn't taste the birthday cake so much but instead they just tasted like really good cake donuts with a festive look and a fun texture.

Tastykake's Blueberry Mini Donuts are made with poppable blueberry flavored cake donuts generously coated in powdered sugar. These lil bites are completely soft and smooth in texture and are bursting with blueberry flavor. They certainly invoke the taste of summer and would pair beautifully with an ice cold pitcher of lemonade.



Orange Kreme Kandy Kakes

These Summer Edition Tastykakes are the most interesting of the new batch of products. They are unique in concept and flavor and are all-around fun. A layer of cake is topped with orange créme flavored filling then everything is lavishly coated in a white confectionary icing. The texture is buttery and smooth and the orange créme flavor is reminiscent of an Orange Creamsicle Bar.




Blueberry Sweet Rolls

These are by far our favorite of the Summer Edition Tastykakes. These velvety sweet rolls are visually stunning with a purple fruity swirl and glossy sweet icing. They taste absolutely delightful and the texture is soft and dreamy. For a winning breakfast or mid-afternoon snack, we recommend zapping them for 10 seconds in the microwave and enjoying them alongside a steaming cup of coffee or tea!



Tastykake's new Mini Donuts and Summer Edition flavors are the perfect snacks to ring in the summer season. We say go ahead and give 'em all a try!

SweeTARTS Soft & Chewy Ropes: FRUITY LICORICE BONANZA!


Classic SweeTARTS Candy is hopping on the licorice train with SweeTARTS Soft & Chewy Ropes and this is a fun ride we never want to stop! These tangy cherry punch flavored candy ropes are stuffed with a soft cherry punch flavored filling. The texture of both the candy and the filling is smooth and not waxy or gritty like other popular fruit licorice brands and the flavor is tart, juicy, fruity and super delicious. We found a "Share Pack" at an AMC Loews Theater, devoured the entire bag during the previews and were left craving more. We loved 'em!

Next time you're at the movies, skip the Twizzlers and set your sights on SweeTARTS Soft & Chewy Ropes!
