Just in the past two years, a lot of Halloween breakfast delicacies have hit the shelves.
Let's take a peek at a few:
First off, the much covited Pumpkin Pie Poptarts:
Two years ago, these beauties made their debut in very limited locations. All over the Halloween blog-o-sphere, Halloween lovers in northern states were raving about these hard to find treats. I scoured every Target in a 40 mile radius of where I work and live and couldn't find them. Last year, I started my search early and found them, but only at Target... so I bought a BUNCH and guess what? They are good for about 10 months after you buy them so no reason not to stockpile ;) Thankfully, this year, they've gone mainstream, making apperances in Wal-Mart and a few other grocery stores.
So, was it worth searching for these things? ABSOLUTLY! Hot or right out of the package, they taste like a piece of pumpkin pie. They have the perfect balance of pastry, pumpkin and cinnamon. I promise, these guys will not disappoint.
Next up, Coffe Mate Pumpkin Spice Creamer:
This creamer came out with a whole holiday line of creamers that Coffee-mate created. I first tried/found it about two years ago. This is another really great product. It comes in liquid and powder form, although, I have not seen the powdered one yet this year, so I'm starting to wonder if they discontinued it. The liquid one is definately available though and I prefer it in the liquid form. This is a really nice combo of pumpkin spices. I cannot say that it tastes a lot like pumpkin, but it does taste like all of the delicious spices that are used in pumkin pies and breads. It's amazing in coffee and a way cheaper alternative to the delicious, but expensive Pumpkin Spice Latte that a certain coffee shop (which I love) produces. It's also good in tea... I'm just sayin ;)
Speaking of coffee:
New to me this year, Peppridge Farm Pumpkin Spice Swirl bread:
But don't fret my friends. If you want the pumpkin spicy goodness on your morning toast, I highly recommend this little gem:
I hope that you all have access to these products. Let me know what you thought if you've tried them.
Also, if you've had the pleasure of trying any breakfast foods that I haven't listed, fill me in!
