Pepperidge Unveils Pumpkin Spice Milano Cookies, 2 Other Pumpkin Products

Pepperidge-Pumpkin-ItemsFall has barely started and we’ve seen a plethora of pumpkin products flood the market. Pepperidge Farm, no shits given, has introduced three new items at the peak of pumpkin popularity. Pretty bold, guys. The three items released are Pumpkin Spice Swirl bread, Pumpkin Cheesecake cookies and Pumpkin Spice Milano cookies.

Honestly, we’re pretty tired of all the pumpkin-inspired items launched over the last few weeks. Heck, even typing the word “pumpkin” so many times is exhausting. However, Pepperidge Farm is also a guilty pleasure. Imagine making a sick turkey sandwich with that pumpkin bread, then just going to town on those cookies.

The Pumpkin Spice Swirl bread will be sold at an estimated retail price of $3.99, the Pumpkin Cheesecake cookies for $3.99 and the Milano Pumpkin cookies for $3.69. The items are available now through December, January and February respectively.

Turkey Meatball Bites

Makes 36 Pieces

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 3/4 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup pesto sauce
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons canola oil
  • All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed
  • 18 Peppadew whole sweet piquanté peppers or pepperoncini, cut in half lengthwise
  • Marinara or traditional-style pasta sauce, heated

How to Make it:

  • Mix the turkey, bread crumbs, cheese, egg, garlic and 3 tablespoons pesto in a large bowl. Season with the salt and black pepper. Shape the turkey mixture into 36 (1-inch) mini meatballs.
  •  Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the meatballs and cook for 10 minutes or until well browned on all sides. Remove the meatballs from the skillet. Repeat with the remaining oil and meatballs.
  •  Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Sprinkle the flour on the work surface. Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface. Cut the pastry sheet into 3 rectangles along the fold lines. Cut each rectangle crosswise into 12 (3/4-inch) strips, making 36 in all.
  • Top each meatball with 1/4 teaspoon pesto sauce and 1 pepper half, cut-side down. Wrap 1 pastry strip around each and press the seams to seal. Place the pastries, seam-side down, into 36 mini muffin-pan cups.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown and the meatballs are cooked through. Serve with the remaining pesto sauce and the marinara sauce for dipping.

Pepperidge Farm Unveils Goldfish Cracker-Flavored Macaroni & Cheese

macandcheese

A recent Buzzfeed list cited “Mac and Cheese in a cup” as one of the 10 Foods That Became Socially Unacceptable to Eat after College, but something tells me this Goldfish-Flavored Mac & Cheese will be enough to convince you otherwise.

According to Brand Eating, the new mash-up from Pepperidge Farm features Goldfish-shaped noodles in four different flavors: Cheddar, Nacho Cheese, Cheesy Pizza and Butter Parmesan. But that’s not even the best part. No, the best part is that the box looks suspiciously like a pack of regular Goldfish and is therefore bound to stir up those old feelings of untrammeled excitement we felt when we realized that – yes! Mom didn’t pack any nasty carrot sticks! Goldfish crackers FTW!

The Goldfish Macaroni and Cheese will be available exclusively at Wal-Mart stores nationwide starting Monday, June 24. Just remember to grab a bag of crackers to sprinkle on top of your pasta, because you know your five-year-old self knew what was up.
