Review: Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Nestle Tollhouse Morsels & Audience Participation: What New Fall TV Show Are You Going To Watch?
Junk Food Nation,it’s that time of year again when the summer TV series wrap up and the new Fall TV lineup is here! I know that with Netflix, Hulu, and cable, the debut of new shows no longer fits a set schedule. But network TV (we’re talking ABC, NBC, CBS, etc.) still follows some schedules, and one is the fall TV lineup.
Starting last night, new shows will begin debuting each day for the next few weeks. There’s almost TOO MANY to watch. Admission: my TV watching patterns are all over the place. Right now, all I’m watching is “Under the Dome” and “Top Chef: Duels.” Yes, you can judge me.
So I need a new show, and I want to know what YOU’RE looking forward to? Junk Food Gal was all excited from “Madam Secretary” last night on CBS, but I was totally uninterested.
I’m looking forward to “Gotham” on FOX, but that’s about it.
But the truth is, the reason I’m not excited about more shows is because I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IS COMING OUT.
So help me out, Junk food Nation. In the comments below, recommend a new show for me to watch. A NEW show that YOU are excited to watch that is coming soon. Don’t tell me to go back and watch Breaking Bad, is what I’m saying. I want to get in on the ground floor here. Tell me what’s good, people.
Today’s junk food: Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Nestle Tollhouse Morsels!
With the deluge of pumpkin spice items that hit the market at the end of August, I was mentally exhausted from walking through the grocery store. SO MUCH PUMPKIN EVERYWHERE. Despite being one of my favorite flavors, I was not super thrilled to try any of it, Pumpkin Spice Oreos aside. On this blog, I’ve been semi-conservative, trying not to buy into trying EVERY SINGLE NEW PUMPKIN OR APPLE OR FALL-RELATED ITEM out there.
But then came Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Nestle Tollhouse Morsels. Crap.
I knew I had to buy these Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Nestle Tollhouse Morsels, because I wanted to see if all that pumpkin spice goodness COULD be translated into something as small as a chocolate chip.
Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Nestle Tollhouse Morsels are NOT chocolate chips of course, but are a pumpkin-y confection made of milk. Perfect for baking into chocolate chip cookies? I think so. Imagine just taking some of these morsels and shaking them on top of just some plain ol Pillsbury break-apart cookies? Yumzers.
Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Nestle Tollhouse Morsels are yellow/orange in color, and as soon as I opened the bag and stuck my nose in, I could smell the sweet sweet smell of pumpkin. Not so much cinnamon or spice….but pure pumpkin aroma punched my in the nose.
I shook a few Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Nestle Tollhouse Morsels into my palm, and tipped them back into my mouth…BAM! Pumpkin spice flavor through and through. REALLY sweet, but the flavor profile was loud and clear. Pumpkin, with a definite kick of cinnamon and spice that came through more as I chewed (more on the back end aftertaste). The underlying milky confection was plenty sweet; this essentially tasted like a solid form of pumpkin spiced cream or milk. Really good – and almost TOO bold of a flavor to be eating the chips alone.
These were begging to be put into chocolate chip cookies to help mute the almost-too-sweet flavor of the morsels. I may have to do this later. If you’re a baker and wondering if these will impart the pumpkin flavor you’re looking for, I’d say thumbs up.
