I recently visited my local Target and immediately found a bunch of pumpkin spice-themed products. To get in the fall spirit, I decided to try a few of these products. From cookies to candies, here are my thoughts on some of the items I found:
Pepperidge Farm produces extremely popular products including Milanos and Goldfish. I, for one, had never seen these Pumpkin Cheesecake cookies before so I wanted to give them a try. For starters, the white chocolate chips in these cookies are delicious and I found myself wanting more. The cookie itself is very reminiscent of a molasses or gingerbread cookie. Overall, this cookie provided the quintessential fall flavors that I was craving.
I had high hopes for these caramels because I love the original Werther’s soft caramels, but these did not live up to my expectations. The pumpkin spice flavor is extremely faint and I nearly forgot they were different from the original caramels. I love pumpkin spice as much as the next girl, but these did not provide that quintessential fall flavor that I was looking for.
Look, I am a purist when it comes to M&M’s and rarely stray from the original candies. However, in recent years there have been some delicious, new flavors including the caramel M&M’s. While the White Pumpkin Pie M&M’s may not be my first choice, I definitely enjoyed them. Each M&M is packed with a blend of white chocolate and pumpkin flavors. Like any other type of M&M, these can be incredibly addicting so proceed with caution.
