Here we have a free Chocolate Dipped Caramel cupcake, another one in the recent set of "chocolate dipped" secret flavors at Georgetown Cupcake. This combination is definitely a winner - especially that caramel cake. A caramel flavored cake might sound a little out of the ordinary (compared to a caramel topping or frosting), but it is very sweet and delicious. The thin layer of glossy chocolate ganache pairs well with the caramel cake, almost like you're eating a very soft candy bar haha. I hope Georgetown Cupcake brings back this caramel cake again soon!

In recent years I have noticed what could only be called an EXPLOSION of pumpkin-flavored foods hitting the grocery store shelves in the fall. I'm not complaining, but it's becoming more difficult to decide which products I want to buy and try out, haha.
This Pumpkin Pie Spice Jif Whips was a fairly easy decision, as I already love peanut butter anyway. As the name indicates, this is a much lighter version of peanut butter, with the consistency being more like a tub of whipped butter or cream cheese. The pumpkin pie spices are noticeable as soon as you open it, but it mixes well with the usual peanut butter scent. I've enjoyed spreading this on apple slices for double the Fall Food taste, haha. Due to its fluffy consistency, I could see this being an excellent option for a dip, or as a quick frosting for breads and other baked goods. I found this at Target, so start there if you're in the market for a tasty seasonal spread!

During a recent trip to Target, I found lots of new items to fill up my basket with! Starting up top, these are the new Toll House DelightFulls morsels. Out of the four choices, the peanut butter and caramel fillings sounded the best so I picked up those.
On the bottom left, we have a pumpkin Noosa yogurt, which is currently only available at Target. Noosa yogurt is delicious, and this pumpkin version was really, really good. If you haven't had Noosa yogurt before, it's very thick and tastes richer than regular yogurt, so a little goes a long way.
Finally, we have the Chobani pumpkin yogurt, which is a fun seasonal breakfast treat for me. I don't believe this is Target-specific, so be sure to check your supermarket if you want this one!
