Some Fall Treats.... and some Tricks.....

Gentle Friends, I thought I would talk about some good things and some questionable things..... first up are "Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars with Caramel Swirl" - found at Food and Wine.  They were a little bit of trouble but ooooh sooo goood!!!

........  a bit late for October and all the "PUMPKIN" stuff everywhere... but we found these at Safeway, and let me tell you, delicious!!!

Now, for the odd .... you know I do like Peeps. every season, every year, year in and year out for as far back as I can remember - mmmmmm good..... so when I saw these I thought, why not try them out.  I'm always up for trying the new and unusual.......

... so I got them home and after opening and dumping them out this is what came out.......
... and they were super sticky - they tasted very sour, that was good - but were weird chewy and just too sticky........  and then on to the very odd.....

......  we were at Bev Mo (for those that don't know what this place is click HERE for more info) picking up a libation called Grey Goose, and saw along the back of the store dozens and I mean dozens of different sodas.  I found this bacon one and thought "I like bacon" so why not give it a try...........  now, I chilled it, poured it over some ice and took a sip....... odd I thought, took another sip and thought not just odd but not good.  It tasted like liquid sweet Bac-O's bacon bits.  I poured it out and learned a lesson, to skip the next bacon flavoured soda.

There you go sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!

Take care,


  1. The cheesecake bars look delicious. The poor peeps just look sad. Haha. I have always loved them too!
    You are braver than I for I don't believe I would have even attempted bacon soda.

  2. Dearest Edgar: love the goodies, as I sit here in Starbucks in Mankato Mn. yummy looking.
    The Peeps are so good but not when they are sticky.
    Hmmmm bacon soda even the name gives me shivers I do hope you are having good weather it is about 9 degrees above here today brrrrrr.


  3. You have some adventurous taste buds--not sure my limited palate is ready for the peeps or bacon soda. Cake looks delicious--I'm sure you removed the calories before serving

  4. Really, you tried bacon flavorous soft drink.....We here love brussels sprouts pan fried with garlic until browned...but I would never drink them as a soda. Silly guys. The cheese cake is more my style.

  5. Oh my goodness! lol! Well, the first two look delicious! lolol!

  6. The pumpkin things look wonderful! Now about the peeps. I am a Peep lover and these just look very weird to me. I also think I will take your advice and pass on the bacon soda!!

  7. We've experienced the odd bacon flavored this or that...I prefer the real thing; they just come up short otherwise. Fun post! The pumpkin cheesecake bar looks scrumptious.

  8. Yeah, the pumpkin donuts were delicious! Ate those up in a weekend!

  9. Funny timing. I tried a chocolate bar with bacon and potato chips inside today. Too salty for my taste!

  10. Edgar - Thank you for the heads up
    on the Entemann Pumpkin Donuts..
    Our local market has them and we
    put in our order....
    A blessed Thanksgiving to you and yours....

  11. Bacon soda! That's just strange strangeness
