In case you didn’t know, Saturday marked the official beginning of Fall. However, we’ve been in full-on Fall mode all week here at Smart Cookie. From pumpkin to butternut squash, all the autumn classics made an appearance. In case you need a recap…
Let’s review, shall we?

I can promise you there will be plenty more Fall eats and treats to come. What else can you expect this coming week? I’ll be re-posting my favorite Soft Pumpkin Cookies with better photos and a delicious Brown Sugar Frosting. These are quite possibly my favorite cookies ever, and I can’t wait to share them with you (again)!
Keeping up with the fall theme today, I’ve got to give the dish on two new seasonal candies on the market. First off, I tried the Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses. These were actually around last year, but a lot of people have been buzzing about them this season. After eating them twice now, I have mixed feelings. On one hand, they’re smooth and sweet and perfectly capture the flavor of pumpkin pie spices. On the other hand, I can’t get past the fact that they remind me of a spice-scented candle, which is rather unappetizing. Plus, I can’t tell if it is supposed to taste like pumpkin pie or just pumpkin pie spice. The jury’s still out on this one.
Have you tried the Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses? What did you think?
The second treat we’re checking out is the new Caramel Apple Milky Way minis. I wasn’t sure what to expect because Milky Ways are my favorite candy, but apple-flavored? I wasn’t sure. Well, as it turns out these things are amazing! It actually works really well. Just imagine a caramel apple dipped in chocolate and miniaturized; that’s what you get here. It’s not too apple-y, but just right. The only problem is their mini size, which makes it all too easy to down a dozen in one sitting.
How about these Caramel Apple Milky Ways? Have any of you tried them?
