In case you were wondering, I’ve decided that it’s time to move to Japan. Apparently owl cafes are a thing there and I can’t possibly resist.

I learned last week that if you hollow out a Reeses cup, Oreo filling will fit perfectly into the hole… I would personally have had BOTH fillings, but that’s just me.
And Lays has announced their newest flavor competition, with flavors like Korean BBQ and Smoked Gouda & Chive.
You may remember me rambling about the majestic and elusive Quesalupa around this time last year, but somehow I completely forgot about them when I went home for Thanksgiving and missed my chance. Lucky for me, the Quesalupa is now poising itself for nation-wide domination, so I will finally have a chance to try the heart attack in a shell after all!
All three of these babies (Oreos, Quesalupa, and Lays) are scheduled for a Feb 8th release date – soon to be most-self-loathing-filled day of my life (so far).
My only saving grace may be the fact that it’s impossible for me to find new flavors of things on their release dates. Phoenix seems to be a bit ‘behind the times’ in these areas, so I may be able to spread out my self-loathing as I eat my way through February’s new items.
In the meantime, Oreo released a new “Cinnamon Bun” flavor. It’s a cinnamon cookie with a “cinnamon bun flavored creme.” While the flavor wasn’t bad, I didn’t think it tasted like a cinnamon bun. It tasted more like Dunakroos (remember those?) or Teddy Grahams than anything else. So far on Oreo flavors, S’mores and Brownie Batter are still my two faves.
I also found out that not only is Phoenix getting THREE Shake Shacks this year, but that one of them will be SO CLOSE TO MY HOUSE I COULD DIE. I’m so excited my heart could explode.
