New in the neighborhood

This is what I hope will be the first of many posts on my new discoveries. But, I am not a dedicated blogger and it may just be the first and the last.  Without a crystal ball, I am not going to guarantee you anything.

The first item is the Moon Pie.  One of my favorite and lamentably dangerous indulgences.  I am not even talking about the BIG Moon Pies…. or the BIGGER Moon Pies (Double Decker!) No.  Today,  it is the deceptively small, bite-size, mini Moon Pie! GAH!!  Two flavors I caught onto this year were…

Coconut (especially for Mardi Gras)

and Caramel (Salted no less!)

Moving on…Dole has me eating fruit. Again. I stop and start.  Fresh fruit is just an extravagance to me. I don’t know what to do with it when I see it in the store. Never occurs to me to buy it and eat it.

So here comes Dole to the rescue! It’s frozen (so I see it when I grab my frozen dinners) and it is covered in CHOCOLATE.  Enough said, me thinks.

They have strawberries….   and they have bananas with or without almonds

chocolate..and yeah..strawberries.

chocolate..and again a fruit. This time Bananas.

I’ll end with a desert and coffee. No, a desert with coffee in it. How close to heaven can you get? Bertolli has put one of my favorite deserts in the freezer section and in single serving containers. Ah! I can die happy. 😉

Tiramisu, I love you!  They have other deserts too…but well…I ignore them. LOL!

Food of the Gods. Or it should be.
