Hormel Announces World’s Hottest Canned Chili Featuring Ghost Reaper

As a lover of all things chili, the spicier, the better when I sit down to a bowl. Sure, some days I may be drenched in sweat, tongue numb, and downing glasses of lact0se-free milk to help calm the heat. What can I say though, I’m a sucker for that fire. 

To my delight, Hormel Chili has announced the release of what they’re calling the World’s Hottest Canned Chili with Beans. 

Ghost and Carolina Reaper peppers are added to Hormel’s classic chili recipe to create the fiery new Ghost Reaper Chili that you can throw on pretty much anything or eat entirely on its own. 

Me, I’ll probably throw it on a bacon cheeseburger or a buttload of fresh homemade fries. Extra well done, so they don’t get soggy under the chili. 

You can order the Ghost Reaper Chili in packs of two cans beginning Oct. 25 online at Target.com.

Thanksgiving Dinner Candy Corn Exists And We’re Cautiously Excited

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been a huge fan of candy corn. The polarizing treat tends to pop up mostly around the fall festivities, and this holiday season, Brach’s is adding a unique twist on their iconic candy corn.

The candy company has introduced an all-new bag of Turkey Dinner Candy Corn.

Turkey-flavored candy corn, you might think? Not quite.

The bag will consist of an assortment of sweet and savory flavors that make up the quintessential Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner. This includes roasted turkey, green beans, stuffing, ginger-glazed carrots, cranberry sauce, and sweet potato pie.

You can find the new Turkey Dinner 12-oz bag of candy corn exclusively at participating Walgreens locations now. Sure, I’m a little concerned about how savory candy corn tastes, but that’s not going to stop me from grabbing a bag.

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.
