This Snack review has Publix’s Bourbon Chocolate Walnut Shortbread Cookies, Pepsi Peeps Soda, Dunkin’ Donuts Iced Coffee Jelly Beans, Ameri Cookies, and Krispy Kreme Donuts Jelly Beans. The biggest surprise were the Publix cookies as I normally find store baked goods to be hit or miss, these were amazing! The disappointing was the Dunkin’ Jelly beans because well, they were horrible.


Publix Bourbon Chocolate Walnut Shortbread Cookies

Score: 9 / 10

Package of Publix Bourbon Chocolate Walnut Shortbread Cookies.

For the price, this can’t be beat! The cookies were soft, slightly crumbly and even slightly chewy, the texture was just great and a mix of everything! The flavor was fairly sweet, had a bourbon nutty taste with a hint of chocolate as advertised. Worth a pickup if you like differently flavored snacks!

Found at Publix, not sure when they released these.

Pepsi Peeps Soda

Score: 6 / 10

Front package of Pepsi Peeps Soda 10 pack.
2023 box.

More marshmallowy than I expected! Simply put, this is Pepsi with a good dose of marshmallow / cotton candy flavor. It isn’t quite overbearing and instead, fairly pleasant tasting.

First released in 2021 around the Easter holiday season, these have returned February 2023 for a limited time.

Ameri Sugar Cookie

Score: 7 / 10

Front Package of Ameri Easter Egg Sugar Cookie.

For only $1.25, these sugar cookies hit! The texture is soft and pretty crumbly, the taste is a typical sugar cookie that’s more on the sweet side. I wish the frosting had more of an impact as it’s thin and not really noticeable.

Found at Dollar Tree, these cookies have been around for some time.

Krispy Kreme Easter Jelly Beans

Score: 5 / 10

Front package of Krispy Kreme Easter Jelly Beans.

Most of these jelly beans hardly tasted like anything as advertised. Instead, they were artificial tasting and I couldn’t always make out what they were trying to portray. Pretty sweet overall.

Announced in 2017, they later released in early 2018 for the Easter season. They’ve come back every year around the same time.

Dunkin’ Donuts Iced Coffee Jelly Beans

Score: 2 / 10

Front package of Dunkin' Donuts Iced Coffee Easter Jelly Beans.

None of these jelly beans taste anywhere close as advertised. Instead, they all taste odd and very sweet with each one differing just slightly in their odd tastes. Overall, really bad.

Released 2021 for the Easter season. These have rereleased around the same time every year.
