Hey everyone! I’ve got a Try It Twofer today, so get ready! Here we go!
Y’all know I’m obsessed with Oreos and all the fun flavors they come out with. This weekend I tried these:
Y’all, these were DELISH! They seriously tasted like a mini apple pie! I think these may be my favorite non-chocolate Oreos EVER!
Whenever Chobani comes out with a new flavor of their flips line, I’ve just gotta try it! I actually went a little crazy last time I was at Target and bought 6 different flavors! What? They were new. I HAD to try them all! Anyway, the one I tried today was carrot cake.
I won’t lie, when I first opened the package, I had a little bit of buyer’s remorse. The yogurt did NOT look appealing at all. It was just a weird color and had chunks of carrot in it.
BUT, after I mixed in the toppings and took a whiff of that yummy cinnamon smell, I was eager to take a bite! This flavor did NOT disappoint! It was super yummy AND filling!
Have you tried either of these products? What did you think? Share in the comments below!
Y’all know I’m all about the new products–ESPECIALLY when Oreo comes out with a new flavor of their classic cookies! Today I’ve got a two-for-one Try It with a healthy item and a not-so-healthy item!
First up, new Popped Salted Caramel Bites from Kind! I love this company’s snack bars, so when I saw this at the store, I was super excited to try it! These little bites are packed with whole grains: oats, buckwheat, millet, amaranth, quinoa, and popped sorghum as well as yummy popcorn, caramel, and sea salt!
At only 110 calories, this yummy treat is exactly what I’ve been looking for! Its salty, its sweet–its great! Two thumbs WAAAAYYYY up!
Up next, the newest flavor of Oreo: Dunkin Donuts Mocha middles Oreo!
Y’all. OH. EM. GEEEEEE! These things were SO tasty! Oreos are basically delicious no matter what flavor (except that whole watermelon phase–bleck!) I love coffee and coffee-flavored stuff, so I thought these were DELISH! I really want to try it swirled in a cup of cappuccino-flavored ice cream! Mmm….

Ah, Tuesday. My second favorite day behind Friday. Today’s Try It Tuesday is highlighting some some tasty new supermarket finds!
As a coffee-lover AND potato chip connoisseur, I was ECSTATIC! Two of my favorite things rolled into one! As soon as I opened the bag, the sweet cappuccino aroma flooded my nostrils and I knew I was going to inhale the entire bag.
One chip, however, totally threw that thought out of my head.
I was hoping for more coffee flavor than potato chip flavor and I didn’t get it. So, these are not my fave. And now I have an almost full bag of cappuccino chips if anyone wants them.
Next up were these treats:
I love Oreos. When I was pregnant, I probably went through a pack a week of those cream-filled cookies! And I love that Oreo is trying so many new flavors (however I’d skip the watermelon AND the fruit punch ones; trust me). I was a teensy bit hesitant to try these because I don’t really like imitation root beer flavored things, like those little root beer barrel candies? Yeah, gross. But, Huff the Hubs LURVES root beer, so I bought them thinking he might like them too.
The taste was subtle enough to be absolutely delicious! It wasn’t overpowering and the fact that it is root beer float (i.e., there’s still vanilla cream in the middle) made it perfect! These are probably in my top three favorite limited edition flavored Oreos!
Have you tried any of these? What did you think?
This week I didn’t plan enough in advance so I don’t have something fun and fancy to make. However, there have been some things I’ve been wanting to buy and try, so I thought I’d share them with you today!
Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot about the Watermelon Oreos. Sadly, I went to two stores and couldn’t find them. BUT, I did find these! sherbet -flavored Oreos!
I was a little nervous about these, not gonna lie. I LOVE the original Oreos and my thinking is: Why mess with perfection? However these bad boys are actually pretty tasty! And, seeing as how I was swarmed by three adults and two toddlers as soon as I opened the package, its fair to say that everyone else liked them too! (As of post time, the package is about half-full. Or half-empty if you’re a pessimist).
I get daily emails from Hungry Girl telling me the latest and greatest in healthy finds. I’ve seen these chips on her site before and every time they’re in an email, I tell myself I’m going to try them.
They’re made with pinto beans and flax seeds are gluten free AND they use hormone-free cheese. Which, in my book, is pretty great. The look of the chips? Not so great:
The taste was… interesting. I could definitely taste the flax seed (which wasn’t awful) and the beans. I’m not 100% sold on them; the cheesy flavor just didn’t taste right with the flax and bean. I think I might try the plain ones with some hummus, though. If you’re really wanting to switch out your not-so-healthy chips with a more healthy alternative, I might suggest these. Or I’d just suggest slicing up an apple. Its a toss up.
And finally, my last taste-test was Extra’s new Lemon Bar sugar free gum. I’ve generally liked all of the flavors from the Dessert Delights collection (mostly the Mint Chocolate Chip and Root Beer), so I was hopeful when I bought this:
I was a little disappointed. The other flavors in this line were so true-to-life that I thought this gum would be like eating a homemade lemon bar. The flavor went away quicker than I had anticipated. This gum is really good for blowing bubbles, though! I’ve got the gum in my hair to prove it.
