thanksgiving 2017

happy thanksgiving to those who celebrate it, happy thursday to those who do not.

many store are not doing the "open on thanksgiving to get more money" thing, so you have to wait until tomorrow for that particular bit of shopping madness.

hope you didn't eat too much & will not get tired of the leftovers until they're gone.

new candy!

Reese's is coming out with a new candy bar called the outrageous bar. it's creamy peanut butter, surrounded by caramel and crunchy Reese’s Pieces candy and then covered milk chocolate. it's not coming out until may 2018. the other is hershey's gold. it's described as a caramelized cream bar embedded with salty peanut and pretzel bits. coming out on dec. 1, it's hershey's fourth bar for the brand and the first new one since cookies & cream (which i hate) since 1995. probably neither one will be good, but i'[m willing to try then out.

found the apple pie oreos

....at target. it's wasn't with the other oreo cookies, but off in it's own rack a couple of isles down in the back, & if we hadn't gone over there to go to the frozen section, we would never had seen it.

over all the it wasn't too bad. didn't taste much apple, just the cinnamon of the "pie" & the gram cracker cookies.

return of pumplin spice

i thought i was done with this nonsense last year but they keep adding new things!

kellogs has a pumpkin spice mini shredded wheat cereal. it is not as strong as i recall the cheerios being.

and oreo has a pumpkin spice cookie, but it seems to have a bit of actual pumpkin in it. it's ok.

oreo also has an apple pie cookie, but neither target nor wal mart has it. pooh!

they also have a cookie butter one. it's not too bad. i always wanted to try cookie butter. arby's has a cookie butter shake that i want to try, but the local one doesn't have root beer any more (they're a pepsi place & we don't like pepsi) so it's unlikely that i will get to try it.

done with blog things

the post the other day about my mom's birthday is the last of the blogthings i will be doing here unless bloghthings changes back to the way they used to do results with the bbcode &.HTML.

maybe they changed it because it's a money issue? or every one is on FB & tumblr and don't do the usualy "blog" kind of things?
