Limited Edition Gingerbread Oreos

A few weeks back I noticed in the Wal-Mart ad they had Limited Edition Gingerbread Oreosadvertised. Gingerbread is one of those Christmas/winter flavors for me. Gingerbread cookies and muffins have always been a favorite of mine … so that just meant I had to give these Oreos a go.
After two attempts at picking these up I finally located them and of course, purchased them. I will admit, I love the original Oreo’s but with those I find a serving size (2 cookies) is simply not enough … so I do not buy them. But for some reason with flavored Oreo’s or any Oreo outside of the original, 1 or 2 cookies is enough and I don’t go back for more.  These cookies fall into that 1 or 2 cookies is enough and I’m satisfied, so that’s a win-win.
Flavor wise the cookies are absolutely delicious. I shared them with my boyfriend and my mother and both agreed they are fabulous.  They’re your classic crunchy cookie, a sweet frosting, and a perfect gingerbread flavoring.  I find them to be a delicious and different treat.  The only downside is they are limited edition.
A serving, 2 cookies, is 150 calories or 4 points plus values.

Thomas’ Limited Edition Cranberry Bagels

While at the grocery store, I noticed they had some new bagels in the Thomas’ section. I had been enjoying the Trader Joe Pumpkin bagels, so when I spotted cranberry bagels I was intrigued. I picked up the package and like I do with most baked bread items, I gave it a sniff and I could smell the cranberry scent right through the plastic. I checked the nutrition facts and put the bag into my cart.
Like most companies, Thomas’ releases new flavored items based on the season and the winter season comes with plenty gingerbread (which are one of the flavor options available) and cranberry. Thomas’ Limited Edition Cranberry Bagels are quite delicious. They remind me of the blueberry bagels, where they are very fragrant and taste just like the fruit but milder.  They smell more fragrant than they taste, but nonetheless they are delicious. The cranberry isn’t too sweet or too tart – it’s just right. They’re great with a little butter, or they’re even better with a little peanut butter.
Each bagel is 250 calories or 6 points plus values.
