A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

Seasonal treats

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

It is (almost) officially my second favorite season of the year, and I, for one, am getting incredibly excited about fall. I love how the air feels a little crisper on fall mornings. I love going for a run or walk in the evening and not feeling like I could sweat to death. I love how the school supplies are purchased and the students are back in the swing of school. I love seeing  gourds for sale in stores, pumpkins on porches, and, of course, the seasonal treats. 

It's been awhile since I wrote a food blog, but I am a sucker for a good seasonal treat. In the fall, almost anything with the words apple or pumpkin get my heart pumping a little faster. (This is ironic in that I HATE pumpkin pie, but like other pumpkin flavored foods.) 

This year, I've discovered a new fall favorite and an old favorite that I think will make the season even better. The new white chocolate Candy Corn M&Ms have become a permanent fixture in my eating rotation the past few days, which is probably going to do little for my waistline and behind. And my old favorite, the Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino is back too! I'm a sucker for anything sweet and salty in the same bite (or sip, in this case). I plan to consume no less than a dozen of these things over the course of the season. 

Try them. Weigh in. And enjoy the season!

  1. I had to google these M&Ms because I couldn't even visualize. I also saw they have candy corn oreos. The possibilities are endless. Also, I had some amazing homemade (not by me) pumpkin soup the other day. Yay for Fall!
