Oh Hey, Snickers Brought Back the Rockin' Nut Road Bar

Supermarket Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins 7 comments

When I think about all the things that I want to bring back from 2008, what tops the list are Season 2 of 30 Rock (OK, partially in hopes of Mystic Pizza: The Musical actually becoming a thing), the chipotle shrimp burrito from La Taqueria in Park Slope (RIP), and the trench coat from Zara that I left in a taxi after too many cocktails at Death & Co. Those things may be lost forever, but it turns out there is one thing I can relive: the Snickers Rockin' Nut Road Bar ($1.09). More

In honor of Pop-Tarts' 50th birthday, Chocolate Vanilla Crème has returned to grocery store shelves. The toaster pastry features a chocolatey crust with vanilla crème filling that's topped with frosting and sugary, chocolate "sprinkles". But, is it worthy of a spot in your grocery cart? We found out. More

We Try Ron Burgundy's Scotchy Scotch Scotch from Ben & Jerry's

Supermarket Sweets Todd Brock 12 comments

Some people don't like butterscotch. Those people are flawed to their core and should not be trusted. And they certainly have no business coming anywhere near this ice cream. It is butterscotch overload, and I mean that in the very best way possible. More

We Try the Limited Edition Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts

Supermarket Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins 8 comments

It's been years since I've tried a new Pop-Tart. It's not because, twenty plus years after our first encounter, I don't still love them, but rather because they went through a neon striped, in your face, made up berry Wildlicious phase which, like Yo Gabba Gabba!, made me shake my head and think, boy I do not get kids today. Then this limited edition flavor came along and I knew my favorite pretend pastry had come home. More

Supermarket Sweets: We Try Trader Joe's Lattemiele Cookies

Supermarket Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins 3 comments

Trader Giotto's Lattemiele cookies looked suspiciously like the "Rigoli" cookies I'd indulge in from Buon Italia. Could this be an awesome discount way to feel my breakfast cookie addiction or would they come up short? More

We Try the New Pepperidge Farm Boston Cream Pie Milano Melts

Supermarket Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins 3 comments

I've found that desserts masquerading as other desserts rarely come out well, especially when the dessert that is being imitated or riffed on is one as classic as Boston Cream Pie. But I ate them anyway, to find out if these new cookies would fall in the trap. More

Supermarket Sweets: We Try the New Chips Ahoy Brownie Filled Cookies

Supermarket Sweets Erin Jackson Post a comment

Nabisco has been making some interesting upgrades to their line of Chips Ahoy cookies lately, including stuffing them with gooey fudge and mixing in pieces of Heath Toffee and miniature Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. But their latest tweak might be the most extreme of all: filling Chewy Chips Ahoy cookies with brownies. More

The New Twinkies: Actually the Sweetest Comeback in the History of Ever?

Supermarket Sweets Ajay Kishore 32 comments

Like all good Americans, I have a fondness for Twinkies, though I suspect that's more informed by their hallowed status in pop culture than an actual appreciation for them as a dessert. With the new version on the market (spoiler alert: yes, they have been tweaked), it was time to revisit the king of snack cakes. More

We Try the New Peanut Butter and Chocolate Peanut Butter Pop-Tarts

Supermarket Sweets Ari Rudess 14 comments

Pop-Tarts are one of those breakfast sweets that every kid wants at some time or another—with their frosted outsides and gooey middles, they are clearly more in dessert territory then Mom and Dad would typically allow. Luckily, we can now buy Pop-Tarts for ourselves, which is why we felt the need to try the newest versions on the shelves. More
