Sugar Cookie Toast Crunch – REVIEW

Sugar Cookie Toast Crunch

Sugar Cookie Toast Crunch
Clearly I’ve been nice this year.

 

I missed Sugar Cookie Toast Crunch during it’s first magical run in 2014 and 2015. People’s reverence for it bordered on mason jar full of toenail clipping levels of creepiness. Now I have the chance to rectify this crime against my taste buds as It’s back for this holiday season! The box art appears to be the same, and it’s merilly magnificent. I’m a sucker for holiday packaging, and the adorable Crazy Squares decked out in santa hats and rocking stockings for pants are right up my alley. It almost makes me feel bad that I’m about to embark on a milky quest to purge this world of Crazy Square kind. Almost.

You see, Sugar Cookie Toast Crunch is amazing. Dry, it is every bit as good as it’s supporters purport. It puts all of the other bakery based treats like the good Capn’s or Kellogg’s takes that I’ve tried to shame. With General Mills jacking into my small and easily pliable mind (explaining why I’ve indulged my wife’s borderline crazy cat lady status) the only thing I can think of is a sugar cookie light on the sugar.

A less sugary, sugar cookie might sound like a faux pas, but it works very well in Toast Crunch form. Whereas the OG bah humbug Cinnamon Toast Crunch is drenched in hyper sweet deliciousness, Sugar Cookie Toast Crunch is a bit more restrained. It’s what I envision Santa’s milk mate of choice would taste like if last minute Nice List bribes were placed out the morning after I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus. Milk certainly changes the flavor, but I found I preferred it dry as leche leeches some of the magic and sweetness—at least in my nut based milk experiments. Meanwhile, it makes a fantastic greek yogurt mix-in, and a peanut buttered toast companion imparts a bit of a peanut butter cookie vibe. I guess 1+1 does equal 2. There’s that college degree paying off again

Take it from a man who crumbled Oreo’s into a bowl and doused them in milk before Oreo O’s rebirth, this is a more socially acceptable way to eat cookies for breakfast. In fact, I will share the uncomfortably warm take that Sugar Cookie Toast Crunch is superior to Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Will you agree? Maybe, but it’s worth trying even if you give me the same incredulous look my wife did from beneath her purring blanket. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to look into vacuum sealing cereal in case it’s another few years before I see my beloved toast shaped cookies again.

Dairy Queen Fall Blizzard Menu

Dairy Queen is coming at me with razor blades in candy apples this Fall. With both the season itself and Halloween topping the charts of their respective lists in my book, their Fall Blizzard Menu is threatening to turn me into the jolly old fat guy who goes boo, boo, boo. In addition to the Dipped Strawberry with Ghirardelli Blizzard pictured above, the classic Pumpkin Pie Blizzard, and delectable Oreo Hot Coca Blizzard return alongside the new Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Blizzard. Combined with August’s lingering Reese’s Outrageous Blizzard, I have to remember not to wear orange to any parties, or I’ll end up with a fate worse than Charlie Browns.

Oreo Firework Blizzard QUICK REVIEW Dairy Queen

Oreo Firework Blizzard Spoon
Is that a firework in your ice cream or are you just happy to see me?

This is the first review that almost killed me. I didn’t realize the fireworks in DQ’s new Oreo Firework Blizzard also come with an adult supervision warning. No, it isn’t because the flavor is “mind blowing” (although spoiler alert, it’s good). You can find out why over at The Impulsive Buy. After all, it’s the least one can do after I put my life on the line. But don’t stop there, because there’s also the limited quantity Star Spangled Blizzard is out now. Actually, do stop there because that thing @#%$@#% sucks.

If you need more good Blizzards in your life, you can read about some of the fantastic choices on the Summer Blizzard menu!

Quick Review: Dairy Queen Dipped Strawberry with Ghirardelli Blizzard

Dairy Queen Dipped Strawberry with Ghirardelli Blizzard

February being known for Valentine’s Day and the Super Bowl, I’m glad DQ took the former for inspiration for this month’s treat. I can’t even begin to imagine the horrors of a TB12 approved Blizzard. Avacado Avalanche? Kale and the Black Bean Stalk? You may be QB1 on my fantasy team sir, but you will be my Blizzardista over my artery clogged corpse. Dairy Queen Dipped Strawberry with Ghirardelli Blizzard places a safer bet by upgrading their older Choco Covered Strawberry Blizzard with Ghiradelli chocolate. Wise and tasty move DQ. You can find my review over at The Impulsive Buy.

Now Gronk, I bet he would know how to make a Blizzard. Kahlua, Bailey’s, Creme de Cacao ice creams filled white fudge covered brownies. Gronk if you’re horny people.

Review: Lindt LINDOR Gingerbread Truffles

Lindt Lindor Gingerbread Truffles

To gingerbread kind, I am known as The Divine Devourer. A capricious, all powerful being who gives
them form, shelter, and life itself merely so that I can enjoy looking upon my creation before
smiting them. Their stale, broken and desiccated bodies discarded like so much refuse if they somehow manage to
escape the jaws of their sugar seeking creator for more than a few days. Lindt has taken pity upon these poor unfortunate souls and released Lindt LINDOR Gingerbread Truffles. Find out if I have fallen from the Ginger Pantheon in my review over at The Impulisve Buy.
