Review of Trader Joe’s Pancake Bread, New Valentine’s & Easter Candy, & More!


This snack review has many Valentine’s and Easter items such as White Chocolate M&Ms, Russell Stover Confetti Cake eggs, Lava Cake Kisses, Raspberry KitKats, Trader Joe’s Pancake Bread, and more. With Easter and Valentine’s right around the corner, I had to get my hands on some of these newly released items! The biggest standout were the Russell Stover Confetti Cake, something I’ve never seen before! Also, the Trader Joe’s Pancake Bread was… interesting!

Russell Stover Confetti Cake Eggs & M&M’s White Chocolate with Crisp Rice Center

Russell Stover: 8.5 / 10
M&M’s: 7 / 10

Pack of Russell Stover Confetti Cake Egg and M&Ms White Chocolate Marshmallow Crispy Treat.

Russell Stover
Thick, soft, hardened cake batter sits in the middle surrounded by chocolate. It’s so sweet, and so good! While I have never seen these before, apparently they’ve had similar versions released in previous years.

Fairly sweet, white chocolate taste with a small crispy crunch. Overall, not bad but nothing crazy. Released late December 2022.

Lava Cake Kisses & Raspberry Creme KitKats

Kisses: 9 / 10
KitKat: 9 / 10

Pack of Raspberry Creme KitKats and Lava Cake Kisses.

If you like kisses with a bit of a soft chocolate, runny explosion in the middle, this is for you. They have the same flavor as regular kisses but the chocolate in the center absolutely makes it so good!
Released for Valentine’s season 2019.

Without being too sweet or overwhelming, there’s a nice creamy, pretty sweet wafer raspberry flavor. I especially love how it isn’t too artificial or have any weird aftertastes.
Released for Valentine’s season 2020.

Cookie Dough Milky Way

Score: 7 / 10

Bar of Milky Way Cookie Dough.

I honestly couldn’t tell the difference between this and a normal Milky Way.

Released January 2023.

Trader Joe’s Pancake Bread

Score: 7 / 10

Package of Trader Joe's Pancake Bread.

If you had syrup, it would be perfect. This is a lot like eating a thick piece of cake that tastes a lot like a buttery pancake. It’s slightly plain so I added some syrup and it tasted a lot like a fluffy pancake!

Released some time in 2019.
