more of the pumpkin spice

found some krispy kreme junior crullers of th e pumpkin spice kind. not too bad, they were the right texture & not too muche "spice".

little debbie has pumpkin spice rolls, not much "spice" but the icing/cream filling is like lard with sugar or something.

pumpkin spice thoughts

i regret ever thinking about trying these things.

mcdonald's has pumpkin spice latte, but i didn't want it hot so asked if they could make it cold. i think the woman forgot to put the flavoring in, so i drank coffee for no good reason. (is there a good reason to drink coffee?) maybe the one from starbucks would be better.

wanted to get the krispy kream pumpkin spice donuts but they were out.

we saw that twinkies had a pumpkin spice version so we got that. but apparently "pumpkin spice" is more spice than pumpkin. at leas it wasn't very strong.

reese's cup with reese's pieces

not sure who thought this was a good idea.

it's just a reese's cup with mini reese's pieces in it.

they need to keep trying for a better idea.

crystal pepsi

brother & i were going through wal-mart not long ago & discovered a shelve of 20oz bottles of crystal pepsi. i was like WTF? that's from the 1990s but my brother pounced on one to try. we split it & it kind of ad a vague fake vanilla flavor, but it's not the worst soft drink i've had.

i guess everything old is new again.

i must be getting weirder

....in my old age, but i wasn't try try pumpkin spice stuff this fall.

last year i had a local convenience store's "harvest spice" cookie. it was ok, not heavy on the spices but the large grain sugar they sprinkled on it hurt my lip.

a long time ago i had the pumpkin pie at golden corral for thanksgiving & it was loaded with so much pumpkin pie spices, that i couldn't eat more then two bites. that's why when we made pumpkin pies in my family, we only put in half of the amount of the spices they called for.

arby's cookies

this summer arby's added cookies to the menu and not long ago we tried them.

there are just two; triple chocolate and salted caramel & chocolate. (BTW salted caramel seems to be the food thing now) we tried both.
i thought that the chocolate was softer and had just the right amount of chocolate flavor. the salted caramel was a little too salty & was firmer. my brother preferred the salted caramel. no reason was given.

since cookies are apart of they're happy hour promotion, we got them for $1 each!
