Happy Halloween Follow Me Foodie Readers!
My favourite Halloween candies, chocolates and treats are different from the ones I used to like as a kid. I used to love getting Old Dutch Chips, Mr. Noodles, M&M’s, Skittles, Fuzzy Peaches, Sour Patch Kids, Cherry Blasters, Rockets, Coffee Crisps, Crunch, Skittles, 3 Musketeers and of course Twix. Times have changed and so have my taste buds. I can still appreciate the ones I used to like, but I just might not chose them first. The ones I like now are Peanut M&M’s, Mr. Big, Peanut Glosettes, Reese’s Pieces and again my all time favourite – Twix chocolate bars.
So for this Halloween I’m handing out Old Dutch Chips, the Nestle chocolate mix of Kit Kats, Smarties, Coffee Crisps, and Aero as well as Peanut M&M’s, Twix and Mars bars. I’m doing a combination of what I liked then and what I like now. I always hand out what I like now because then I can indulge in the leftovers.
This year I’m spicing things up… or I guess “sweetening” things up. For costumes I really like, or for kids dressed up as food (which will be none) or for kids who look like foodies (lol I don’t know how I’ll determine that part)… but anyways, for those kids I’m handing out these…
I introduce to you Match Oreo Cookie Bars!
I know. Some of you might be thinking what a freaking waste!! What kind of kid is going to appreciate a MATCHA OREO BAR!? But the thing is I want to encourage kids to learn about cultures through food. I also feel obligated to Follow Me Foodie to hand out something less generic. These Matcha Oreo Cookie Bars are seriously gold.
To: Nestle. Please start selling these in Vancouver. I freaking love these things! It’s the delicious combination of Oreo and Matcha! It’s crunchy with peices of Oreo cookies throughout. It’s the perfect balance of matcha flavour and chocolate and I like to put mine in the fridge before indulging.
Moving onto other delicious chocolate bars, in particular Kit Kats, and the exotic flavours they offer in different countries.
I’ve also tried Apple Kit Kat (YUM!), Sakura Cherry Blossom and Match Kit Kat, Raspberry Kit Kat and apparently there’s a Soy Sauce and Wasasbi Kit Kat too. So next Halloween I should probably just go trick-or-treating in Japan… who’s with me?
