August is just about over, so here are some treasures I found this month!
First up, is the Limited Edition Brownie Batter Oreos. Stop reading this… Put down your phone, iPad, laptop, and get in your car now and get these. Now. Imagine making the darkest chocolate vegan brownies and eating the batter straight from the bowl. Then, add two crunchy chocolate cookies… These are so spot-on it actually shocked me. I’ve made some pretty kick-ass brownies, and these, dare I say, beat them. I’ve liked the seasonal limited edition Oreos in the past, like the Smores and Red Velvet versions, but these are by far the best. I’ve read other rave reviews and I hope these bad boys become a permanent player on the Oreo team.
Next up, is Skinny Pop Hatch Chili Flavored Popcorn. This item is also limited edition (WHY?!!!!), and is quite delicious. As I’ve said before, I’m kind of a wuss when it comes to spicy foods, so I’m not sure why I got this is the first place, but I’m glad I did. Light, crunchy, with a slight chili enduced burn, I killed an entire bag with no regrets. I believe I got 2 bags for $4.00, and will definitely be getting it again.
Next is Jack-o Traveler Pumpkin Shandy, from the makers of Curious Traveler and various other “traveler” beers. After a brief research session, it is confirmed that this beer is vegan, and freakin’ delicious. I believe this just may be the best pumpkin flavored beer I’ve had! The pumpkin flavor is strong and spiced like a true pumpkin pie, but it is still smooth. The alcohol content is 4.4%, and a 6 pack is just under $10.00. Well worth with it I’d say. Come onnnnn Pumpkin flavored Everything!
And the last vegan (or at least it should be) treasure is the show Last Comic Standing on NBC. I remember watching this when the series first aired, but haven’t watched since. If I do watch TV, I watch shows on Netflix. To be honest, I barely know how to use my remote… But for some reason I flipped to this show and the contestants are pretty hilario (that’s how cool kids say Hilarious). The judges aren’t that entertaining, but they’re all famous for being funny so I guess they have to know something. Tune in for a laugh (have some Pumpkin beer to make it funnier!).
