I was pleasantly surprised to come across a display of Gingerbread Oreos at Target a few weeks ago, because I hadn't really heard too much about it online beforehand. I have to admit I don't normally seek out gingerbread foods, but the smiling Gingerbread man got me, haha.
Right off the bat the filling smells like a warm spice-blend frosting, and it pairs perfectly with the golden Oreo cookies. Taste-wise it doesn't have quite the punch that some true gingerbread cookies have, but there's enough to let you know the gingerbread roots. These were great with a cup of coffee at work!

I happened to browse in a Hallmark store recently and couldn't resist buying this cute little doughnut-themed ornament - perfect for my food/drink Christmas tree! It's a little hard to tell in this photo, but this ornament is seriously tiny - around half the size of my thumb, haha. This is the perfect ornament for anyone that loves doughnuts, or just miniature food in general :o)

The November Skoshbox included a bunch of little samples, and a nice mix of sweet and savory flavors. Along the bottom of the photo are sesame mochi filled chocolates, Hello Kitty chocolate-filled marshmallows, and strawberry milk candies. I especially loved the sesame mochi chocolates because they had a very strong and nutty sesame flavor. At the top of the photo are panda chocolate biscuits, a savory senbei (rice crackers with soy sauce flavor), and dinosaur shaped milk biscuits. Milk biscuits are very popular with young children (I think they also dissolve quickly so little kids can eat them safely), but they're just as tasty for adults, haha. I really enjoyed everything in this month's box, and I'm already looking forward to December's box!
