It's not quite Friday, but I wanted to share some fun fry-day products that I've come across recently, haha! I'm not really sure why but I feel like I've seen a number of fry-related products lately, which is all the more ironic considering I don't eat French fries. Not because I don't like them, mind you, but more because I love them too much and I'm trying to exert some self control with at least one vice.
I saw this shirt at Forever 21, and I thought it was awesome -it also reminded me of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, haha. But then I realized that I don't really have anywhere that I could (or should?) wear this.
On the other hand, I could DEFINITELY use this insulated lunch bag for my work lunches! I spotted this bag at Target, and found out at the register that it was even cheaper than the marked clearance price - always a fun surprise! This bag was under $3 and will make my work lunches all the more fun to bring in to the office. At my store, there were also Chipwich and Burger versions as well, which are also super cute!

This recent secret flavor at Georgetown Cupcake was available when my friends Nothing Mundane made a stop in DC on their tour of the country - it's always nice to have visitors, especially when free cupcakes are involved :o) Be sure to check out their blog to follow along on their RV journey!
You can't really tell in the photo, but the cake had a LOT of little butterscotch chips throughout, which added lots of concentrated butterscotch flavor in every bite. With the sweetness of butterscotch in general, I'm glad they stuck with the thin chocolate ganache as the topping for this one - it may have been a little overwhelming with a standard frosting swirl. It was a fun weekend with friends in town, capped off by this delicious free cupcake!

I have to admit, I was a little skeptical of these new Oreo Thins when I first came across them in the grocery store. Thin = less Oreo deliciousness to me, or that's what I believed until I actually tried them!
The crispy Oreo cookies are more like a crunchy biscuit in these, with a thin layer of creme filling inside. As much as I love regular Oreos, I really enjoyed the crispy texture of these cookies, and they crumbled less than the regular version which is a nice bonus. Even a skeptic like me loved these - so give them a try if you also like trying different versions of Oreo cookies!
