Review: Pepperidge Farm Limited Edition Pumpkin Cheesecake Soft Dessert Cookies & FALL IS HERE!
Junk Food Nation, welcome to the Fall! I know the Fall doesn’t officially begin until September 22, but look around: the leaves are starting to change. Football begins tomorrow. Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back at Starbucks. Candy corn is in stores. IT’S AUTUMN PEOPLE! One of my FAVORITE times of the year.
But, first things first. THE BROWNIE BRITTLE CONTEST! Over 100 entries, and lots of great feedback – thanks to everyone who participated. Using the random number generator at Random.org, I assigned every entry a number, clicked the button and the winner is:
*** @iSmisty ***
Congratulations @iSmisty! I’ll be in touch soon with the way to claim your prize. And to everyone else – don’t fret! I have another big contest I’m going to launch NEXT WEEK, so keep tuning in and get those twitter handles ready.
Back to Fall – I’ll say this: I’m not a big college football fan. To be clear, it is NOT because I don’t LIKE college football (I actually enjoy it immensely) but I never had a school to root for (my own school’s football team never really playing on a national stage). But I did get a chuckle out of this; a Kent State player fielding a kick and running the wrong way down the field, and then the other team equally idiotically tackling him to prevent him from getting too far:
And with that, let’s get to day’s junk food: Pepperidge Farm Limited Edition Pumpkin Cheesecake Soft Dessert Cookies!!!
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHH YESS Pepperidge Farm. You know how to make me jump for joy in the store. Pepperidge Farm Limited Edition Pumpkin Cheesecake Soft Dessert Cookies??? You kidding me? I literally grabbed them from the shelf, THREW them into my cart, and did a jig as I rushed to the cash register. Not on the PF website yet, these cookies were found at, where else, WALMART.
Pepperidge Farm Limited Edition Pumpkin Cheesecake Soft Dessert Cookies are decorated with autumn leaf colors that immediately scream “Take me home and eat them while drinking hot cocoa and watching ‘Friday Night Lights.'” (The movie, not the TV show).
Honestly, when I saw these in the store, I think I exclaimed out loud, “HOOOOOOLY SH*T.” Yep, that’s me. Classy classy classy.
I love the phrase Soft Dessert Cookies – like “these are so decadent, you should ONLY have them for dessert.” Not a chance. I’m having these for breakfast if I feel like it. The bag shows an orange-y pumpkin cookie with what appears to be cheesecake chunks. MY GOD.
MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM TELL ME MORE. For a refresher on why I love spice cookies, read this post about the Fall Four Major Food Groups.
Pepperidge Farm Limited Edition Pumpkin Cheesecake Soft Dessert Cookies are pretty high in calorie, but we knew that, didn’t we? We did. I’ll say this though – the recently reviewed Blizzard Oreos had 140 calories for two cookies. Take from that what you wish.
Pepperidge Farm Limited Edition Pumpkin Cheesecake Soft Dessert Cookies looked exactly as the package displayed, and maybe even better. Look how big those cheesecake chunks are! The smell of the bag was of fresh pumpkin muffins or carrot cake – just a nice warm sweet spice smell. Familiar. Felt good.
I bit into one of these Pepperidge Farm Limited Edition Pumpkin Cheesecake Soft Dessert Cookies and ZOMG THEY WERE AMAZING. First of all, soft is right – like other soft baked Pepperidge Farm cookies, these were very soft and had a satisfying bite to them. I know this means it’s full of hydrogenated oil, but I DON’T CARE. The softness of the cookie made me feel like I was eating a pumpkin muffin or pumpkin bread. Why? Because the flavor profile was also dead-on. Sweet Autumn flavors, spiced just right.
The cookie part of these Pepperidge Farm Limited Edition Pumpkin Cheesecake Soft Dessert Cookies tasted like a pumpkin muffin. Then, when my teeth hit the white cheesecake pockets, it tasted JUST like pumpkin cheesecake or like cream cheese frosting on the previous said-pumpkin-muffin flavor. The cheese cake pieces dissolve quickly to mix with the cookie and blends all the flavors together into perfection. Simply delicious. Good cinnamon and spice flavor, and the cookie is not cluttered up with some nuts or other nonsense. The flavor is just ON POINT.
Stop reading this, drive to Walmart, and buy these now. SERIOUSLY. GO!
