Seasonal Junk Food

Remember a few years ago when Taco Bell was offering free Black Jack tacos on Halloween?  Basically, they were just tacos in a black corn tortillas shell.  I was so on it. I'm not sure if I was more excited by the word free (definitely one of my top three favorite F- words) or because they were a seasonal, limited edition marketing ploy (I'm such a consumer). 

Suffice it to say I was stoked about both and I look forward to gimmicky fall, Halloween and holiday themed goodies every year.  Don't judge me because I know some of y'all run to Starbucks for a PSL on the first day of fall (present company included).  Aaaanywho... Here are a few things that are totally on my radar. 

First up, the Pumpkin Spice Creme Oreo. These are not new but oddly this is my first year buying them. They did not disappoint.  They tasted like a crunchy little bite-sized pumpkin pie.  A dry one but tasty nonetheless. 
Next we have the Cheetos white cheddar flavored Bag of Bones. I believe these made their debut last year but when I went to look for them they were sold out at every store in my area.  However, this year I shopped early and was lucky enough to find a few stragglers remaining at Target last weekend.  They're taste a lot like Cheetos Puffs and are just as messy but a lot less orange so that's an improvement. I just thought they were super cute and my little guy had fun assembling the skeleton before devouring its bones.  Savage. 

Lastly, the Burger King Whopper which I have not tried yet but I've heard it's actually really good. It's just a Whopper with a black bun and A1 steak sauce but it looks so friggin cool!  It's going in my mouth. That is all. 

Some of my regular must haves this time of year are, of course, the obligatory Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. First day of Fall or as close to as humanly possible always. Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts are my about solute favorite flavor of all time. If you haven't tried them you're missing out. And for my kids I buy a box of Boo Berry, Frankenberry and/or Count Chocula cereal because... Nostalgia.  I think they deserve their own post but more on.that later. 

Did i miss anything?
