BJ’s Just Revealed A Fruity PEBBLES Cereal PIZOOKIE

A few months ago, BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse turned heads by creating a Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal Pizookie. The decadent cookie-based dessert featured vanilla bean ice cream, Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal, and cinnamon sugar. Heralded as the first in a line of breakfast-cereal themed Pizookies, the delicious reveal left us wondering what the next pizookie offering will be.

Now, the restaurant chain has dropped the newest iteration of the breakfast cereal Pizookie in the form of a new Fruity Pebbles Cereal Pizookie. BJ’s newest dessert item features a warm sugar cookie base cooked in a deep-dish pan that’s topped with vanilla bean ice cream, and colorful spoonfuls of Fruity Pebbles cereal.

Available at participating BJ’s locations nationwide, the new dessert will only be around for a limited time. Guests who arrive on July 17, BJ’s Free Pizookie Day, will recieve a free Pizookie of their choice with a purchase of $9.95 or more.

I wonder which iconic cereal they’ll tackle next?

5 Sinful Eats To Chow Down On In Costa Mesa

Culinary entrepreneur and Southern California foodie Thomas Pham has an undeniable influence within the vibrant SoCal food scene.

He holds a heavyweight belt as a well-respected social media influencer, and we have him to thank for bringing an East Coast food icon to sunny California in the form of the popular mediterranean restaurant Halal Guys, which opened in Southern California back in 2015.

With that in mind, we were stoked when Thomas let us tag along with him as he munched his way through some of his favorite spots in Costa Mesa, California.

During our first stop, we anchored ourselves down at West Coast Fish, located within The Camp in Costa Mesa. West Coast Fish is fairly new but already booming with popularity. Thomas ordered one of his favorite dishes: The Bjorn Battered Tacos.

The temperature was rising and we needed something to cool off, so naturally, Thomas recommended we stop by Creamistry for some made-to-order liquid nitrogen ice cream. Thomas grabbed one of his favorite frozen treats, the Taro Nitro MilkShake, topped with marshmallows and Fruity Pebbles cereal.

Next, we drove over to Paderia to watch Thomas tear open one of his favorite pastries, a cheese ensaymada — a soft, Spanish pastry made with sweet bread covered with sugar and filled with with cheese. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and savory.

After indulging our sweet tooth, we headed over to Orange County’s East Borough to indulge in an OC favorite: the French Pho Dip. Made with beef brisket, Thai basil, bean sprouts, onions, and Sriracha hoisin aioli on a fresh baguette, this culinary creation is an incredible fusion of East meets West, and should be on your list if you haven’t tried it yet.

Finally, for our last bite, Thomas took the gang over to Capital Noodle Bar to try another East-meets-West creation: Thai Basil Spaghetti. The dish was made with minced pork, bell pepper, egg, fresh chilli, Thai basil, and spaghetti noodles.

Thanks, Thomas. We’re stuffed.

These Fruity Pebble Rainbow Donuts Are Almost Too Pretty To Eat

If you’re a fan of Fruity Pebbles and donuts, this recipe is right up your colorful alley.

Beth of The First Year recipe blog put together these Rainbow Donuts that will soothe your OCD.

A lot of foods that claim to be rainbow-themed are usually colorful, but lack the actual rainbow element. These donuts, however, actually look like little rainbows.

Sure it requires a little patience, as you have to separate each color in the Fruity Pebbles, but all great things don’t come without struggle. Plus, chances are you’re making these for kids. This would be the perfect opportunity to get them involved and let them pick out the colors.

Beth actually has a kick-ass recipe to make donuts, but if you’re lazy like me, skip that step and just run to the grocery store and buy some.

After you have your doughy vessel, you melt some white chocolate and dip the donuts in it.

From there, while the chocolate’s warm, you start applying the Fruity Pebble pieces, one by one.

It’s not a complete rainbow, obviously, but you start at the top with the reds, then make your way down with the orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.

Add a shredded coconut cloud under the rainbow for extra texture and you’ve got yourself a colorful, delicious snack.

For the full recipe and step by step directions, check out the First Year Blog and get your grub on.

You Can Literally Eat a Bowl Of Cereal For National Cereal Day With This Recipe

Today is National Cereal Day and there’s no better way to celebrate this fantastic unofficial holiday than to grab your favorite bowl of cereal… and EAT IT!

No ‘cereal-sly’ we want you to make a bowl out of your favorite cereal (we recommend Fruity Pebbles) and just go at it.  We got bored of eating cereal the usual way and too lazy to do the dishes so we made it edible.  Top it with ice cream, yogurt or milk and you’ve got a complete treat.

Don’t worry, we’ve got the recipe:



1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
1 pkg. (10-1/2 oz.) miniature marshmallows (6 cups)
1 pkg. (13 oz.) Fruity Pebbles Cereal (about 8-1/2 cups)


Line 2-1/2- to 3-qt. bowl with foil, extending foil about 2 inches beyond edge of bowl. Lightly grease foil; set aside.

Place butter in 4-qt. microwaveable bowl sprayed with cooking spray. Microwave on high 45 sec. or until butter is melted. Add marshmallows; stir to coat. Microwave 1-1/2 min. or until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 45 sec. Microwave an additional 4 min., stirring after 2 min. Add cereal; mix well.

Place cereal mixture in foil-lined bowl; press firmly onto bottom and up side of bowl to form thick shell. Let stand in cool dry place at least 4 hours or overnight until firm. Remove cereal shell from bowl, using foil handles. Carefully peel off foil. Fill shell as desired. Makes 24 servings.

NEW OREO FLAVORS: Blueberry Pie & Fruity Crisps


Oreo has a better product release schedule than Apple computers. Never a dull moment between new flavor launches, Oreo has confirmed their two new limited-edition flavors set to be available early June include Blueberry Pie and Fruity Crisp (Fruity Pebbles?) flavors.

The Blueberry Pie flavor notes blueberry cream sandwiched between graham-cracker-flavored cookies. The second flavor, Fruity Crisp, bears an uncanny resemblance to many a kid’s favorite sugary cereal, Fruity Pebbles. Target seems to have nabbed the exclusivity on the Blueberry Pie Oreos, with sources noting it will solely be available June 6th at participating Target locations.

Both flavors have already been spotted at certain stores, and Instagrammer @Junkbanter even points out a third flavor allegedly at certain Wal-Mart locations, Summer Oreo:

How To Make Fruity And Cocoa Pebbles Ice Cream Sandwiches


Nick Chipman at Dude Foods has made himself the king of ice cream cereal creations, inventing things such as the Fruity Pebbles ice cream cone and the Cocoa Pebbles ice cream taco.

It would seem the natural next step would be a pebbly ice cream sandwich, so that’s exactly what Chipman did.

For the buns, he mixed up the Cocoa Pebbles and Fruity Pebbles with melted marshmallows and used a donut cutter to shape them.

He then uses the ice cream pint slicing method to get the perfect circular ice cream to with the pebble buns.

For the full recipe and other crazy creations, check out Dude Foods.
