Hello lovely beings ✨
The fall season is upon us and has brought cozy sweaters, scented candles, and pumpkin spice flavored galore. Not sure what's delicious and what they've slapped a pumpkin spice sticker on for the gimmick? Let me help you pick through what's bussin' respectfully and who's lacking in flavor at your local World Market!
Let's get into it.
Pumpkin Filled Oatmeal Cookies
I was really hoping that these would be delicious this... Mainly because I used to highly enjoy these bad boys, but this year they seem a bit stiffer in the pumpkin filled department. The spice level was also less than, but I have a feeling that if I heated them up the flavors may have come out better. Maybe I'll try that for a next time.
Itella Pumpkin Spice Panettone
I'm not usually the one to enjoy bits in my pieces, but the random bits of pumpkin bring a certain je ne ses quoi to this little Panettone. I'm not even put off by the hidden gooeyness of the center. The flavors in the spices used isn't too subtle or overbearing. I like to pair this little cake with a nice warm tea or cocoa.
S. Remounted Pumpkin Spice Wafer Rolls
Wow, is this yummy! I'm not usually into wafers, but these filled my mouth with such a smooth spice-filled flavor. The outer shell was soft but still sturdy enough to hold that creamy filling. It's hard for me to eat just a few. The outer shell sturdy enough to hold the creamy filling.
Hammonds Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate Dunking Spoon
Decent. First of all, I was drawn to this mainly because it's dang adorable. Secondly.... I love hot chocolate! They suggest you mix it with hot milk, but the flavor itself is already very milky. The chocolate wasn't very present if at all and in the end, it gave a chemically candy-like taste so I wasn't able to finish the whole cup 😅. I do like the added cute candy pumpkin.
Bloom Pumpkin Spice Caramel Sauce
Very much so salty. I'm not alone in this opinion, as the reviews online said just about the same thing. I'm not sure what to pair it up with yet, and have only tried pastry items so far. Fruit would probably be a better choice to counteract the severe amount of salt.
Socado Picari Cookie Butter Pralines
If you're a fan of chocolate truffles and surprising textures, then this is the truffle ball for you! I, not being the biggest fan of shortbread let alone random crunch in my smooth, didn't fully enjoy this truffle. The spices in the shortbread did, however, add to the flavor of the creamy filling. If it weren't for the added biscuit bits, I'd keep these in my snack stock for sure.
