More Duncan Hines Perfect Size varieties. We already covered the Lemon Bliss and Chocolate Lover’s. I didn’t know there were so many. Well, now I know. (Spotted by Margaret at Stop & Shop and Josh at Shop n Save.)

I don’t know if this is spicy, but I’d eat spicy cornbread with butter. That’s sound really good right now. Damn you, Krusteaz! (Spotted by Morgan at Walmart.)

  1. Hey I just wanted to let you know we tried the Duncan Hines Perfect Size Lemon Bliss and it was absolutely gross. The cake tasted bad and the frosting tasted cheap and was really thin. I would not recommend it at all!!!

    1. I’ve made the golden fudge one and it tasted amazing – perfectly moist with fudgy frosting. However, the thing was a pain in the ass to make – I did not expect to have to use beaters and bring butter to room temperature or figure out the springform pan, etc. Felt like it took forever from start to finish. But I’ll be damned if it wasn’t delicious.

  2. I had some of that puffins cereal a while back and thought it tasted nasty It wasn’t this flavor it was the normal Flavor

  3. Rainbow cookies?!! I LOVE rainbow cookies!!! Anyone know why these aren’t listed in the “new” category of entenmann’s website? They’re just listed under cookies as though they’ve been around already, but I’ve certainly never seen them. I used the flavor finder and they aren’t anywhere near here. Even checked zip codes in NYC area. Has anyone seen these around anywhere? We don’t have any Food Plus stores where I live. An almond flavored product seems weird to debut given the price of anything almond these days.

  4. I did try to “Punkin” puffins… The pumpkin flavor was lacking at first bite, I thought maybe it was because I used them as a chaser for some pumpkin spice whipped cream from Kroger. So I tried another bite and then another, and no, there was still no pumpkin- or spice for that matter. They taste like slightly more savory Puffins. Do not recommend.
