All Love for Valentine's Day Hazelnut Spread m&m's




I don't even like hazelnut chocolate products but I love these highly addictive Hazelnut Spread m&m's! The soft consistency and mellow flavor of the hazelnut cream center is offset perfect by the milk chocolate and sugar shell crunch. They can't be in the house anymore because they are consumed at an alarmingly fast rate. Love the color mix for Valentine's Day!

Starburst Valentine's Day Heart Shaped Jellybeans



The cherry and strawberry flavors are almost indistinguishable, but these little red heart shaped jewels are totally compelling anyway! Starburst makes great jelly beans.

Getting Salty for Valentine's Day: Ghirardelli Sea Salt Caramel Hearts


I love these Ghirardelli two-packs--the ideal snack size. After sampling, though, I'm going back for the large size bag of these Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Hearts. They're so good! They're not shy about the salt, but the rich chocolate and sweet caramel balance it nicely. The caramel is an especially pleasing consistency.

Valentine's Day White Cheesecake m&m's


No no, these White Cheesecake m&m's are so sugary sweet the Cheesecake flavor barely comes through, a little like getting a mouth full of cream cheese frosting without the cream. Eat the new Hazelnut Spread m&m's instead! Those are so incredibly delicious. More on that soon.

NYC Locals: Magnolia Bakery Honors Harley Quinn and Birds of Prey

I've missed out on the excitement surrounding the release of the new film Birds of Prey. I did not miss, however, the news that Magnolia Bakery is celebrating the release with Pink Puddin', a blend of their famous and incredibly compelling Banana Pudding with chunks of vivid pink confetti cake. Reason enough to celebrate!

Candy Backlog: Skittles Cramy Yogurt Dips



In theory, Skittles Dips--traditional Skittles dipped in a layer of creamy yogurt--sound disgusting. In reality, they were delicious! If a little messy! Get that yogurt inside the candy shell and we've got a big winner! Yogurt Power!
