Hi there! It seems like everywhere I go these days I am whipping out my phone for new Foodie Finds! This week, I braved the asiles of Walmart; it took me about two days of preparing. I grew up on Walmarts, not Targets, but since moving out west I have been spoiled by Target. The Walmart in my area is SO crazy that I actually try and avoid it all together.
I did find a few good things there, and their bakery section is larger than any grocery store around, so I guess that is a huge plus. I found some new Snack Packs! This time, it was Apple Pie a la Mode. Has anyone tried this? I love apple pie too much to try it. Candy cane taffy! I am also not a huge taffy fan, but I saw a similar item in Whole Foods a few weeks ago, makes me wonder how popular it is. Candy cane hot chocolate! I bought this to try in with my hot chocolate whipped cream! I had to do it. They had a HUGE display with Hostess donettes and coffee cakes for only $2. My boyfriend loves donettes, and I know, like the rest of Americans, that we ran around to all local grocery stores to stockpile anything we could find after hearing the were going bankrupt. We used as much self control as we could muster, we made it out with only 8 boxes.
I cruised through the “gift section” in the food aisles as well. Of course, there is the standard hot chocolate gift baskets and candy gift baskets, but I figured I would share the oddest one I found and my favorite one. Buffalo wings? Seriously? I guess anything can be made into a gift basket these days. The second basket has cake mix, chocolate truffle cocoa mix, shortbread cookies and Nutella-to-go. I LOVE Nutella. I thought this would make a cute gift for a baker.
Is anyone finding anything good out there I should check out? Let me know!
