  1. Wow, I’m surprised that Kellogg’s is rolling out the “Finding Dory” cereal so soon. The movie won’t be out for over another six months.

  2. Airheads should had made a white mystery flavor soft bites too. White mystery is a famous trademark for Airheads.

    I suspect that we will be seeing strawberry shortcake cookie butter soon in Trader Joe’s

  3. I cannot recommend the Giant Chocolate Creme or Snickerdoodle. The Chocolate Creme lacks the crunch of the Trader Joe’s equivalent and lacks the cream counterpoint to the cocoa. Cocoa flavor is strong and like dark chocolate. The Snickerdoodle has strong cinnamon flavor but lacks the sweetness which balances the cookies.

    Did not try the other two.

  4. Hmmm…not sure if the heart shaped ding dongs are Nut – free…but it would be a wise move on behalf of Hostess to do this …it would sell like Hot cakes in schools ( many are nut free ) …be my sweetie …not if your full of nuts !!! Gag !!

  5. I dig the Snickerdoodle Speculoos. I appreciated that it wasn’t quite as cloyingly sweet as other off-brands. My husband was meh about the Giant brand regular cookie spread, he prefers the Biscof flavor. I couldn’t really find much difference, myself.

  6. Has anyone tried the baked oat bites? They look like cracklin oat bran from Kellogg’s which I remember was very good so I am curious whether these have a similar taste?
