Trader Joe’s Vegan ‘Cheesecake’ Is A Dairy-Free Game Changer

One of the most significant letdowns of lactose intolerance is not being able to fully enjoy desserts such as cheesecake without it doing a number on your insides. Trader Joe’s newest dessert entry, however, has just the fix for that cheesecake desire.

The supermarket chain has released a new cheese-less cheesecake that can be found in the frozen food aisle of your local Trader Joe’s.

Trader Joe’s Cheese-Less “Cheesecakes” are made with lima beans, coconut oil, and konjac to create the palatable vibrance that one would find in a single bite of cheesecake. The dessert is finished with a crust of oats and graham flour, resulting in a completely vegan dessert.

You can find this new take on cheesecake at participating Trader Joe’s locations. Each box comes with two cakes.

S’MORES BITES From Sun Maid Are Made For Summer Snacking

For the majority of my life, I’ve always associated Sun Maid with raisins. Not such the case anymore, as the brand has expanded their offerings beyond their iconic raisins.

Sun Maid has launched a line of “Bites” that encompass a variety of sweet snacks you can enjoy on the go.

One of the most notable new additions are S’mores Bites, which include graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate, and raisins packed into a bite-sized morsel.

It’s essentially like cramming a campfire experience into a 6-oz bag. You can buy these new Sun Maid Bites now at Meijer stores as well as Amazon.

Other Bite additions include PB&J, Birthday Cake, and Banana Split all containing raisins.

New POPCORN Flavored M&M’s Are A Movie Night Game Changer

One of my favorite movie theater snacks is dumping a bag of M&M’s into a hot buttery bucket of popcorn. The warm butter melts the chocolate over the popcorn and blends the two flavors and textures into a taste so delicious it can get you through any movie.

While theaters don’t appear to be an option these days, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the taste from home.

M&M’s newest offering combines the two concession stand favorites into a single bag: M&M’s Chocolate Popcorn.

The candies feature a popcorn-flavored shell with a milk chocolate center.

You can find them now nationwide in grocery candy aisles through Halloween.

Imagine dumping a bag of these into some hot microwave popcorn. Might try that the next time I watch a movie at home.

New NERDS Clusters Wraps The Candy Around Gummy Core

I’ve always believed that there exists a level of sweet tooth satiation that can only be achieved with a box of Nerds. My only gripe is that, in a rush to have some, I’ll tend to drop a few (dozen) getting them out of the box.

Now, from the hallowed halls of Nerds HQ comes a new form of the treat that avoids all that messiness. This new innovation wraps the colorful confections around a sweet gummy center.

The new Nerds Gummy Clusters are composed of mini Rainbow Nerds that wrap around a soft gummy center.

It sounds like biting into a sugar-packed dream, really.

You can find the new Nerds Gummy Clusters available this August at supermarket snack aisles across the country.

I’ve been looking for new snack options in the past few months, because there’s only so many Sweet Maui Onion Hawaiian Chips a guy can eat.

Enter one of Trader Joe’s newest arrivals: Trader Joe’s Garlic & Onion Pistachios. Man, this sounds like heaven to my palate.

With this new snack, California grown pistachios are dry roasted and dusted with a hearty blend of garlic, onion, and sea salt. The shells are intact and ready for you to simply pop into your mouth to get a full burst of flavor.

You can find a 13-oz bag for $6.99 at your local Trader Joe’s. Not gonna lie, this bag could very well be gone by the time I get home from the store.

Jif’s New Squeezable Pouches Makes Serving Peanut Butter Insanely Easier

A nice creamy peanut butter sandwich is one of the purest delights in this life. The only downside for me, however, is sometimes I’ll fumble with the knife and make my peanut to bread ratio pretty uneven. The sandwich will still be delicious, don’t get me wrong, but some bites will have more bread than peanut butter and vice versa.

Now you can control the portion of peanut butter delivered to any vessel thanks to these new Jif Squeeze Creamy Peanut Butter.

The peanut butter brand has released a new squeezable pouch that releases your peanut butter with the precision of a seasoned surgeon. Through this new method, you can measure much more accurately for recipes and more importantly serve ants on a log without making a mess of your presentation.

You can find these new pouches and mini To Go containers at participating retailers and online this July.

Frosted Flakes And Froot Loops Get A First-Ever Cereal Mash-Up

As a kid, have you ever faced the tough decision between eating Frosted Flakes or Froot Loops for your breakfast cereal? Have you ever waited until your mom walked away and ended up just combining the two together? I totally have.

To the delight of my inner child, Kellogg’s has created the first-ever cereal mash-up between Frosted Flakes and Foot Loops.

Taking the colorful loops handcrafted by Toucan Sam and the Frosted Corn Flakes whipped up by Tony the Tiger, this amalgam of iconic breakfast cereals blends together two unique tastes.

Those who have combined the two in their youth will definitely know what this tastes like already, but the purists who can only have one box at a time will surely find some joy in this new experience.

The cereal mashup will be available at participating grocery retailers nationwide for a limited time beginning this June.
