Halloween Candy Corn / Pumpkin Spice - Pie Madness, Part 3: Russell Stover Milk Chocolate Pumpkin Pie
This Russell Stover Milk Chocolate Pumpkin Pie Pumpkin was an odd addition to this year's array of pumpkin-y spiced delights. The filling was another really quirky variety of pumpkin pie, something completely unattributable flavor-wise- fruity nutmeg?- but not bad tasting, either. What kept me thinking about this three-bite too-sweet treat was the consistency of the filling. The pumpkin pie center melted broke apart in smooth sheets of sugar, plates of crystals separated and dissolved on the tongue. I think it's the consistency that Peppermint Patties wish they could have. I never would have finished the holiday treat if it weren't for that consistency; because of it, I finished the first and promptly consumed a second.
