When I heard about the Limited Edition Sugar Cookie Pop-Tarts in October, I thought that would be the last new Pop-Tarts flavor Kellogg’s would introduce in 2011. After all, they released five new flavors this year.

I’d list them all, but I believe reading that list might make your ass a little bigger.

But here I am with about three weeks until the end of the year and I’m writing this post about Kellogg’s latest Pop-Tarts flavor — Wildlicious Frosted Wild! Fruit Fusion.

Out of all the Wildlicious Pop-Tarts flavors available, which I also won’t list for fear of making your ass bigger, Frosted Wild! Fruit Fusion is by far the wildest of the bunch because it’s not just one fruit that’s gone wild. This Pop-Tart is the Joe Francis of Pop-Tarts because it makes cherry, orange, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, and other fruits go wild. It’s topped with yellow frosting, orange icing drizzle, and multi-colored sprinkles.

One Wildlicious Frosted Wild! Fruit Fusion Pop-Tart has 200 calories, 45 calories from fat, 5 grams of fat, 1.5 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat (made with partially hydrogenated oil), 2 grams of polyunsaturated fat, 1 gram of monounsaturated fat, 0 milligrams of cholesterol, 170 milligrams of sodium, 36 grams of carbohydrates, less than 1 gram of fiber, 15 grams of sugar, and 2 grams of protein.

NEWS: Celebrate Oreo’s 100th Birthday By Buying Limited Edition Birthday Cake Oreo Cookies

Update: Click here to read our Nabisco Limited Edition Birthday Cake Oreo review

Did you know I ate over 100 Oreo cookies in 2011?

Did you know the Oreo cookie turns 100 years old in 2012?

According to Wikipedia, the Oreo cookie was created by Nabisco in 1912 at one of its factories in New York City. Oreo cookies originally came in two flavors: lemon meringue and cream. However, the cream ended up being, by far, the most popular flavor, and Nabisco stopped producing the lemon meringue flavor in the 1920s. But enough with the free history lesson that will not provide you with any answers for any history exam you take.

So how is Nabisco going to celebrate Oreo’s 100th birthday? They’re probably first going to have Willard Scott announce the birthday on The Today Show, and then they’re going to do it with Limited Edition Birthday Cake Oreo cookies.

The naturally and artificially flavored chocolate sandwich cookies will have a creme filling with what appears to be sprinkles in it. That filling will be sandwiched in-between chocolate cookies that have a special design commemorating Oreo’s 100th birthday. I haven’t been able to dig up anything about its flavor, so I don’t know what kind of birthday cake the limited edition cookie is supposed to taste like.

Two cookies will have 140 calories, 60 calories from fat, 6 grams of fat, 2 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat (uses partially hydrogenated oil), 0 milligrams of cholesterol, 110 milligrams of sodium, 40 milligrams of potassium, 21 grams of carbohydrates, 13 grams of sugar, less than 1 gram of fiber, and less than 1 gram of protein.

The Limited Edition Birthday Cake Oreo cookies will be available in early 2012 in 10.5 ounce packages.

NEWS: Kellogg’s Krave Cereal Is Koming To Amerika

Update: Click here to read our review

In 2010, Kellogg’s introduced Krave cereal in the UK and then bombarded its citizens with commercials like the one above.

Ever since reading that review, I’ve been kraving Krave because I love a cereal that borders on the line of cereal and candy. Thankfully, I soon won’t be kraving Krave, instead I’ll be kramming Krave down my oral kavity because Krave is koming to Amerika.

The US version of Krave cereal will come in two varieties: Chocolate and Double Chocolate. The chocolate version consists of a crispy multi-grain cereal outside with a smooth chocolate inside, while the double chocolate version will have a chocolate flavored cereal on the outside with a smooth chocolate inside.

A serving of Krave Chocolate has 120 calories, 3.5 grams of fat, 1 gram of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 1.5 grams of polyunsaturated fat, 1 gram of monounsaturated fat, 24 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber, 11 grams of sugar, and 2 grams of protein. A 3/4 cup serving of Krave Double Chocolate has 120 calories, 3.5 grams of fat, 1 gram of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 1.5 grams of polyunsaturated fat, 1 gram of monounsaturated fat, 23 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber, 10 grams of sugar, and 2 grams of protein. Both varieties are fortified with vitamins and minerals.

NEWS: Ben & Jerry’s Banana Cream Pie Ice Cream is Probably Less Funny To Shove Into Someone’s Face Than an Actual Banana Cream Pie

Update: Click here to read our Ben & Jerry’s Limited Batch Banana Cream Pie review

I loves me some banana cream pie. This is the second cream pie flavor B&J have put out, with Boston Cream Pie being the other. This gives me hope that they’ll someday come up with a Shaving Cream Pie ice cream.

Ben & Jerry’s Banana Cream Pie ice cream is made up of banana ice cream with pastry cream swirls, marshmallow swirls, and pie crust pieces. In order to get some, you’ll have to walk through a Walmart, since it’s an exclusive flavor. Thankfully, walking through a Walmart is much safer now that there aren’t people getting pushed around and trampled for $2 waffle makers. Or $1.28 towels. Or cheap Blu-Ray players.

A 1/2 cup serving contains 260 calories, 110 calories from fat, 12 grams of fat, 6 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 100 milligrams of sodium, 34 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, 24 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein.

NEWS: Peeps Introduces New Caramel Flavored Dipped Marshmallow Chicks To Eat or Blow Up In Your Microwave

Peep Jousting 2

To be honest, I don’t really eat Peeps. I just like to use them in a way that would upset starving children in third world countries — Peep Wars. If you don’t know what Peep Wars are it involves sticking two Peeps, with toothpicks inserted into them, on a plate facing each other as if they’re going to duel. The plate is then microwaved and as the Peeps swell, their toothpicks will poke each other. The Peep that explodes first is the loser.

Peeps come in a variety of colors, but the new Caramel Flavored Dipped Marshmallow Peeps come in a tan color. That’s going to make Peep Wars a little more fun. The caramel-flavored Peeps’ bronzed bodies will make each Peep War look like a fighting scene from the movie 300. If only these Peeps were oily and had perfect abs.

But if you’re going to eat Caramel Flavored Dipped Marshmallow Peeps, they come in two varieties; they’re dipped in either milk or dark chocolate. The new flavor will only be available in three-count packages.
