A Little Hallowe'en Drawing

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you so much for your super comments!!  I also wanted to welcome the New Followers to my little Blog!
_____________

If you remember back a few posts I was talking about finding the Hershey "Pumpkin Spice Kisses."  I said I was out on the hunt for another Seasonal Treat.....well, yesterday we headed to South City to the Target to find this Limited time only Seasonal Treat!!!  How these two things tie together is that I read on the Internet last week that there was going to be a release on Monday of a Candy Corn Hallowe'en Cookie... from Oreo.  Now, when I read the words "limited time only" and Hallowe'en cookie tied to the words "Candy Corn"  I knew I was going to find some of these cookies!!!  I have read the reviews and that only fueled the fire so to speak.....   

We made it to the Target and found the cookies!!!!  I was stoked!  What had been a huge display of these cookies had dwindled dramatically by the time we arrived so I rushed to get a couple of packs of cookies ...  I was in Hallowe'en Heaven!!  I was very excited to try them, but waited till I got home....

I already had gotten out my Fall cookie Jar....


.....my Mr. Oogie Boogie from the Film "Nightmare Before Christmas." a favorite film of mine.  Here are the cookies and packaging.....


The cookie parts are the golden Oreo cookie with the middle being what looks like a squished candy corn - 1/2 yellow, 1/2 orange.  When you open the package it really has a Candy Corn aroma, but the cookies only hint at the flavour of the "Corn."  They taste more vanilla like, but what a great gimmick for the Season!!

Now for the Drawing, I picked up and additional package of cookies for a Gift-a-way, so, if you would like my extra package of Candy Corn Cookies -  all you need to do is leave a comment on This Post Only and on Monday, 9/17, I'll have Rico draw a name and announce the winner on Tuesday's Post, please make sure that your contact info is available.  That's it, very easy peasy!!

What will they come up with next? They look yummy, but I'll pass on the giveaway. I just saw them in the store yesterday. I didn't pick them up because candy corn makes my teeth scream for some reason!

More treats Edgar! You're the best! Please put my name in for the drawing. Love that cookie jar!!!!

Christine said...

I love the Oogie Boogie cookie jar, he is adorable. I've no idea what candy corn is supposed to taste like, I've never seen it over here, I don't think that traditionally we make such a big deal out of Halloween in England as you do, though that seems to be changing in recent years

Gabi said...

Yummy, that looks good. Here in Germany we don't have these cookies.
Please put my name in!

Lindsay said...

How cool are those!

I'd love you to enter me in the draw

Yvonne..... said...

OMG! Candy Corn Oreos! Who would have ever thought it would happen! Let the spooky goodness begin!!!

Joy said...

Good to know. My husband really wants some but he's on the anti-Candida diet right now and he can't have any sugar and is having to eat gluten free grains. We're hoping it gets rid of the infection he has lived with for months. He says knowing that they're more color than flavor, he can wait.

Sherry :o) said...

I took my fattie fannie to Target and they were already out. Still on the hunt, but please put me in your drawing...just in case. Can you imagine them chocolate dipped? Yum!

Julie said...

What a hoot, so different.
