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.

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.

SweeTARTS x Wonder Woman Collab Releases Golden Rope Candy

While we may be months away still from the premiere of the new Wonder Woman movie, our excitement for the next installment in the series is getting us through these past melancholic months. Luckily, there’s a bit of a reprieve in the interim of that wait. In a collaboration between SweeTARTS and Wonder Woman 1984, the candy brand has released a limited time new treat inspired by the upcoming DC Comics film.

SweeTARTS Golden Ropes are golden strings of tropical-flavored licorice rope that boast the signature flavor of SweeTARTS in the center. The candy snack was inspired by Princess Diana’s legendary Lasso of Truth, given to her before leaving the mythical island of Themyscira. The lasso’s power compels anyone bound by it to tell the absolute truth, making it an essential tool in Wonder Woman’s mystical arsenal

You can find them now on grocery store shelves in the candy aisles in anticipation for the upcoming comic book movie. Wonder Woman 1984 is tentatively set to release this August, though that premiere may be moved depending on the state of the world.

Disney Just Released Their Famous GREY STUFF Dessert Recipe

It’s been a hot minute since we’ve been back at Disneyland and we’ve been craving their treats and sweets for what feels like ages. Not too long ago, Disney released their famous churro recipe for everyone to enjoy at home. Now, another famous dessert has been released from the vault.

Disney Parks Blog has now shared their recipe for the famous Grey Stuff, made famous in the 1991 animated Disney film Beauty and the Beast. The dessert is a sort of pudding known for its soft and crunchy texture and unique grey visual.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 1/2 cups cold whole milk
  • 1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 15 chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 1 (8 ounce) container whipped topping, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 12 scalloped sugar cookies
  • Edible sugar pearls

Here’s what to do:

Add milk into large mixing bowl and toss in instant vanilla pudding mix, whisking for 2 minutes until smooth and slightly thickened. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours until firm. Blend the chocolate sandwich cookies in a food processor until it’s pureed, then fold that puree into the pudding mix. Stir thoroughly. Add the whipped topping and instant chocolate pudding, stir thoroughly and refrigerate for an hour. Finally, spoon the grey stuff into a piping bag (your choice of tip) and pipe the grey stuff onto your cookies. Finish them off with sugar pearl toppings.

Sounds pretty magical and straightforward, folks. You can also find a printable copy of the recipe here, which has been modified a bit from what’s served in the parks for a smaller portion.
