Cookie Pop Oreo Popcorn
Score: 5.5 / 10
There’s Oreo on these? This mostly tastes like plain popcorn with a small bit of chocolate. Even on inspection, each piece barely has any cookie or orangey goo, it’s really deceiving because the packaging presents it so much more covered and vibrant. I suppose if you wanted a popcorn with just a hint of chocolate, this would be it.
Released early 2020. This brand also has other flavors including Candy Pop and Cereal Pop popcorns. Found at Price Rite.
Note: This is the Halloween version.
Target Favorite Day Christmas Holiday Whipped Creams: Marshmallow, Hot Cocoa, and Gingerbread
Gingerbread: 6.5 / 10
Marshmallow: 7.5 / 10
Hot Cocoa: 8 / 10
Lightly sweet but noticable and and bold gingerbread taste. I expected this to have more of a brown color rather than sparkly white!
A sweeter version of regular whipped cream with a bit of a marshmallow taste. The whipped cream texture itself was more lighter and less thick than the other two.
Perfectly sweet (not too much or too little) milk chocolate flavored whipped cream. Though, paired with hot chocolate, it kind of defeats the purpose and everything tastes the same!
I believe the first few of these flavored whipped cream offerings, Marshmallow, Pumpkin Spice, and Maple Vanilla, released August 2022. Then, Peppermint and Gingerbread were released around October 2022. After that, Hot Cocoa and Salted Caramel flavors were added and released November 2023. These are exclusive for the fall and winter seasons respectively.
Cheesecake Factory 2023 Limited Edition Cookie Dough Lover’s Cheesecake with Pecans
Score: 7.5 / 10
This is more like a caramely pecan cheesecake with just a hint of cookie dough. I think it’s because the cookie dough is really overshadowed by the stronger sweet pecan flavor and the bold cheesecake layers. Not bad overall, although, this is definitely for more of those who enjoy nutty flavors.
Released July 30, 2023 for a limited time.
Little Debbie Cherry Cordials
Score: 7.5 / 10
I expected this to resemble their other soft cakes but this was on the stiffer side. The thin chocolate shell is crunchy, the cake layer is thin and not as soft as their other cakes, and the filling is thin. Together, the flavor does in fact resemble a traditional cherry cordial at least.
While I can’t find an exact release date, mentions of this product date back to the 2021 late fall season. Found at Price Rite.
Choceur White Chocolate with Spiced Cookie Pieces Bar
Score: 6.5 / 10
One of the largest, thickest candy bars I’ve had! The texture is that of a regular chocolate bar and the taste is… different? I’m not sure. It’s a moderately sweet white chocolate (not as sweet as Hershey’s for example) and it has a hint of something else. Is it the crunchy embedded cookie pieces giving it that flavor? Probably, though, I’m just not sure what flavor that is exactly.
Released November 2023 for the holiday season alongside a Peppermint Creme flavor. Exclusive to Aldi.
