Reviewing Trader Joe’s Blueberry Almond Milk, M&M Caramel Cold Brew, Fruity Pebbles Popcorn, & More!

This Snack review has Trader Joe’s Blueberry Lavender Almond Milk, M&M Caramel Cold Brew, Fruity Pebbles Cereal Popcorn, Arizona Fruit Snacks, and Crunch Mania Cinnamon Bun Cookies. The biggest surprise were the Crunch Mania Cookies which I paid $.25 per bag but they ended up being so good! The most disappointing were the Arizona Fruit snacks, I expected something sweeter and tea-like.


Trader Joe’s Blueberry Lavender Almond Milk Beverage

Score: 7 / 10

Front package of Trader Joe's Blueberry Lavender Almond Milk Beverage.

If you took almond milk and added a hint of blueberry and lavender, this is it. There’s nothing overbearing about the flavor, it’s simply noticeable and very pleasant. If you’re into sweet drinks, this isn’t for you.

Exclusive to Trader Joe’s. Unsure when it was released.

M&M Caramel Cold Brew

Score: 9 / 10

Front of M&M Caramel Cold Brew package.

Large, thick, and chewy, these M&Ms have a caramel-coffee taste that isn’t overwhelming and quite light. It also has a light chocolate M&M taste in the background which is tasty in combination with the other flavors.

Found at Walmart. Released February 2023.


Arizona Fruit Snacks

Score: 5 / 10

Front of package of Arizona Fruit Gummies pack.

Exactly like regular fruit gummies you’d find. I expected a little more sweetness and more tea-like flavors instead however.

Found at Dollar Tree. Released some time in 2019.


Kellogg’s Crunch Mania Bite-Sized Cookies

Score: 6 / 10

Front package of Kellogg's Crunch Mania snack size cinnamon bun cookies.

Despite finding several packages of these at the Dollar Tree (about $.25 per pack), their price was anything but. They are very good for their price, with a light cinnamon and sweet taste but not overly so. Texture is crunchy and has a thin layer of glaze on top.

Some sources indicate a March-April 2023 release although Amazon reviews go back to mid 2022.

SNAX-Sational Fruity Pebbles Popcorn

Score: 8 / 10

Front package of Pop Cereal Fruity Pebbles Popcorn bag.

This was absolutely loaded with Fruity Pebbles in and on the popcorn. The texture itself was slightly crunchy, like typical caramel popcorn but with a sweet Fruity Pebbles flavor. Really tasty, especially if you’re a fan of Fruity Pebbles!

Released alongside Cocoa Pebbles Popcorn January 2023 exclusive to Sam’s Club and Walmart. This is made by a different company that released Trix and some other popcorn variations (General Mills), see here.
