Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cakes

Score: 7 / 10

Front box and package of Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cakes.

I remember these being so much sweeter as a kid, I was totally addicted! Instead, these taste more moderately sweet, are soft, and have a tasty vanilla cake taste. I also love the iconic little crunchy red bits and frosting, it’s so cute!

Originally released in 1985. Comes back every year around the late fall months.

Little Debbie Chocolate Christmas Tree Cakes

Score: 7 / 10

Front box and package of Little Debbie Chocolate Christmas Tree Cakes.

The chocolate version of Christmas Tree Cakes! These lean towards the darker side and taste just a tad sweeter overall. They remind me of a chocolatey cake, and when fridged, it’s even better!

Not sure when they released this chocolate version of Tree Cakes.

Zero Sugar Coca-Cola Limited Edition Y3000

Score: 6.5 / 10

Box of Zero Sugar Coca-Cola Limited Edition Y3000 soda.

Kind of a berry-ish coke? I’m really not sure. It’s about the same level of sweetness as a regular one, though, I wouldn’t rank it higher than one nor higher than the classics like Cherry or Vanilla.

Released September 2023 for a limited time. Coca-Cola claims it was partly created with AI.

Bee Chocolate Chip Cookie Cottage Kit

Score: 5.5 / 10

Front box of Bee Chocolate Chip Cookie Cottage Kit.

Like most other holiday house kits, these are almost impossible to put together, or perhaps I’m an idiot. The taste and texture of the house itself is an off-tasting, mildly sweet chocolate chip cookie that’s a bit too dry. Even the frosting tastes too much on the artificial side, even a bit stiff, but at least its sweetness adds to the bland, unsweet chocolate chip cookie house pieces. Still, something about all of this comes together decently.

Not sure when this was released although it has been around for the last few years at least. Released late fall for the Holidays. Found at Stop & Shop.

Pepperidge Farm Limited Edition Milano Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Score: 7 / 10

Front package of Pepperidge Farm Limited Edition Milano Pumpkin Spice cookies.

A soft, sort of dry m cookie biscuit with a fairly bold and noticable semi-sweet pumpkin spice taste. A great addition to the Milano cookie line, it’s kind of unfortunate this is limited edition.

While I’m not sure when this was released, reviews date back to 2014. It has seemingly come back every year around the early fall months for a limited time.
