Lay’s Launches New Layers

Lay’s is kicking off 2022 by adding what it calls a “multi-dimensional” take on its OG potato chip. Dubbed Layers, the new snack from Lay’s claims to be crunchier than regular potato chips and has, well, layers, of flavor in it.

The new snacks are hitting shelves in two layers — Sour Cream & Onion and Three Cheese, which is made up of cheddar, parmesan, and gouda.

Having tried the new Layers myself, they do live up to the claim of amped up crisp and crunch, which helps the next level chips stand out in the grocer’s aisle.

Oreo Cakesters Return At The Last Blockbuster Video

Does anyone else remember Oreo Cakesters? They came out back in 2007 and were essentially a cake version of Oreos.

While the Oreo Cakesters were discontinued only a few years after their debut, the confection is making a quiet comeback and what better way to experience said comeback than by partnering up with the Last Blockbuster.

Blockbuster patrons were surprised Jan. 7, with the redesign of the store’s marquee, co-branding Oreo Cakesters. Within the store, the walls are covered with Cakester-themed movie posters and Cakesters were served to customers in retro VHS-style packaging.

But you don’t have to travel to the last Blockbuster to get your hands on some. Cakesters officially hits retailers’ shelves this week.

Man, I remember many summer nights where all I had were a few bags of Cakesters and some Blockbuster rentals.
The memories.

OREO THINS Extra Stuf Cookies Are Coming Soon

There’s always been a lowkey debate about what the perfect OREO cookie to creme filling ratio is. When OREO THINS became a thing, it was marketed as an option for adults. But really, OREO cookies can get bites from any age group. As a grown ass man am I really going to complain about too much creme filling in my OREO? Nope.

I’m sure plenty other adults feel the same way I do, which is why OREO unveiling new OREO THINS Extra Stuf cookies is a full on angelic choir to our grown folk ears. This right here is the perfect ratio unlocked. To be honest, kids would appreciate the ratio dynamics at play here, too. More creme and a slightly a little less cookie is flawless.

We’ll all have to wait just a bit longer for this perfection, since OREO THINS Extra Stuf cookies will be a permanent addition to the OREO portfolio beginning in January 2022.

Pringles Debuts Glow-In-The-Dark Cans For Halloween

It’s literally still August, and here we are with a Halloween-related story. Because it seems like the folks over at Pringles wanted to get an early start to the festivities by unveiling a new glow-in-the-dark can.

Pringles’ festive new glow-in-the-dark cans look to be a proper entry to Halloween snacking, which is usually dominated by candies and sweets. But to be frank, I’d much prefer having a can of Pringles dropped into my bag if I was a kid out trick-or-treating. The candies, they’ll always be there, but a whole can of chips? There’s no way any kid’s refusing — especially since the can’s got cool glow-in-the-dark effects.

Look to your local grocer’s aisle to spot these new Pringles Glow-In-The-Dark cans and get them early to stock up once Halloween comes around.
