  1. Interesting. Those are just seasoning packets for Chex Mix, not snack sized Chex Mix bags. And they’re different than just using the ‘pumpkin spice’ in your cabinet because…?

    1. Yup. I’m planning on making a big batch of pumpkin spice-flavored Chex Party Mix and then putting them into generic Ziploc snack bags. Or, if I have money, give them the seasoning packets and let them make their own Chex Party Mix.

  2. Those caramel pecan rolls look like they might be well worth trying. Now I’m looking forward to my next trip to Walmart. Thanks, The Impulse Buy!

  3. The cinnamon rolls were in short, disgusting. My two year old ate two I couldn’t even finish one. The dough had a plastic taste and not a natural yeast/flour/cinnamon taste. Cinnamon rolls are my all time favorite food. So believe me, your better off making your own with the ready dough in the freezer aisle!!!!

  4. The cinnamon rolls are awful! After baking as directed they never did rise at all. Very dense and gross tasting. My kids wouldn’t even eat them and they were chocolate chip. Blech.

  5. The cinnamon rolls were disgusting. My sweet daughter didn’t even tell me how bad she thought they were until later in the day, because she knew how much I paid for them and she felt bad! It tasted like we poured burnt corn syrup all over a biscuit. I wrote to Pepperidge Farms. I encourage anyone else who tried them to do the same.

  6. Just trying the cherry rolls & both my daughter and I think they are lovely…… Not sure why other people are having issues with them. I’d buy them again. Trying the pecan caramel ones next.

  7. We discovered the Pepperidge Farms sweet rolls just as they were discontinued! So, we only got to try two of the flavors. The apple were an all around favorite; sweet but not over sweet and perfectly crumbly. Even my food snobbish grandmother loved them. The caramel pecan ones were disappointing. The caramel had absolutely no flavor and there were barely any pecans to put on them. So, if you can still find it in your local store, the apple ones are definitely worth trying.
