Trader Joe recently came out with another Fearless Flyer, which prompted a few visits for me. Here are some of the highlights from my shopping trips:


I’d never heard of a Kumato before until my Fearless Flyer ad. They are greenish brown rather than red. They ripen from the inside out and are supposedly super sweet.

I tried them. And indeed, they are sweeter than your average tomato. But not sugary sweet. More like sweet cherry tomatoes.

Coconut Mango Bites

Chewy coconut and mango flavored candy is covered in dark chocolate. These were quite tasty. It’s a little like a 3 Musketeers bar filled with a mixture of coconut and mango.


Wendy's Frosty Waffle Cone

Wendy’s recently came out with Frosty Waffle Cones, putting their famous frosty dessert into oversized waffle cones.

I love waffle cones. I sometimes go to certain frozen yogurt shops simply because they offer waffle cone bits as one of the topping options. I can’t think of any other major fast food brand that offers waffle cones, so I was really excited to try the Wendy’s Frosty Waffle Cone.

I first learned about the new product on Twitter. The Twitter campaign was quite clever. It started by Wendy’s asking its followers what was the best way to eat a Frosty, other than just with a spoon. This led to some interesting and creative suggestions. At the conclusion of the discussion, Wendy’s revealed that they thought the best way was to eat it in a cone, and thus announcing the debut of the waffle cone.

So last weekend I popped into my local Wendy’s and saw the promotion.

Currently they offer vanilla and chocolate. We got one of each flavor. The waffle cone was pretty big, like your standard oversized waffle cone, and inside was about as much frosty as you usually get with a small Frosty.

With the weather warming up, I’m excited to start making summer desserts again. Last year, I started making my own ice pops and came up with quite a few yummy ones. I hope to add to that recipe collection this year as well.

To start things off, here are some super easy fruit bars. I’m a sucker for desserts where you can see fruit pieces inside.
