In case anyone is wondering, no I didn't buy any art for myself. I went to every booth and well besides gifts for others I ended up just buying sweets. Since it has been a long time since I reviewed food I decided to review them all for you to enjoy. I'll also give credit to the creators of the sweets as well as all of these are made by local people.

All of the candy above is from Kitty Hawk Krunch which you can order from These candy are unique as they are all made by freeze drying. A process that often leaves them having a melt in your mouth texture(except the skittles). I got 4 because they had a 4 for $20 deal and I have no self control.

Smores Saltwater Taffy

Sweet melt in your mouth goodness with a smores flavor. You can really taste the graham cracker, marshmallow and chocolate.

Pumpkin Spice Saltwater Taffy

Similar to the Smores taffy, but with a sweet pumpkin pie like flavor.

Jolly Krunch

These are not as soft melt in your mouth as the taffy, but they are packed with flavor.

Rainbow Krunch

If you like the flavor of skittles but want crunchy not chewy these are for you.

These 3 are all by different people. So I will give credit in each review.

Christian's Maple Cotton Candy- Made by Doyle and Julie Christian, Christian Sugar Bush in WI

It tastes just like maple syrup but its fluffy not sticky.

Peanut Butter Bomb- Made by Groveland Confections

As the name states this is the bomb! Sweet milk chocolate filled with peanut butter and chocolate. It is very sweet and the filling melts in your mouth.

Wisconsin Maple Root Beer- Made by WMSPA

A good root beer with a maple taste. I made this in a float as it said to do so on the can. The float was heaven.

If there is one famous Easter candy it is Peeps. For the few of you who don't know, Peeps are marshmallows covered in sugar. These are the flavors I found this year so lets review them all.

Classic Peeps


For a default I decided to get the classic peeps in my favorite color. I love these as usual with their soft and chewy sweetness. Despite the blue color, they are just sugar and marshmallow with no other flavor.

Fruit Punch Peeps


If you ever had Hawaiian fruit punch, this is exactly what it would taste like in Peeps form. The marshmallows themselves are also red, in this type of Peeps, instead of just the usual white. A nice flavor if a bit powerful.

Sour Watermelon Peeps


Lightly sour these Watermelon peeps are a nice tart fruity treat to eat.

Tropical Burst Peeps


These peeps taste tropical, but its hard to pin down the exact fruits they taste like. If you like vaguely tropical things then give these a go.

Sparkly Wild Berry Peeps


I love the berry flavor of these and they seem to have tasty berry sprinkles. These ones were my favorites so far, due to the great berry taste and extra berry sprinkles.

Chocolate Pudding Peeps


I had no idea what to think of these, due to not being fruit flavored. I was not disappointed, however as they tasted exactly like chocolate pudding.

Peeps Gummies


They a soft chewy gummies with a marshmallow flavor. Not much else to say on these.

Who doesn't love Girl Scout cookies? I think many people every year keep their eyes out looking for little girls in front of stores selling these treasure boxes. I missed being able to have these a few years later because, these were hard to come by when I lived in Chicago. This year, I got lucky and found a local troop, and bought all the above boxes and thin mints which I got later and the Toast-yays that I forgot I had.


Shortbread cookies with lemon icing

Review: These cookies are great dipped in milk as they soften quickly. It tastes like lemon pie with a combination of frosting and shortbread. If you like a sweet lemon taste pick these up.


Brownie cookies with caramel creme, a hint of salt and fudge stripes


If you love chocolate and salted caramel, check out this box of cookies. The box itself may be ordinary, but these cookies are anything but.


Classic Shortbread cookies


These are great shortbread cookies that are sweet and mild and go well with milk. If shortbread cookies are the cookie for you, then get these ones they are one of the better tasting ones.

Peanut Butter Sandwich cookies

Oatmeal cookies with peanut butter filling


To me, these are better than NutterButters because the peanut butter is real and the oatmeal cookies taste great. I love peanut butter cookies and these are one of the best prepackaged cookies I've ever had. These things are only offered once a year, which is good or I'd probably eat far too many boxes of them.

Caramel DeLites

Cookies with caramel, coconut and fudge stripes.


These are my mom's favorites even when I was a kid she'd get these along with the thin mints for herself. I think these are good, but they are dry and don't exactly work dipped in milk.

Peanut Butter Patties

Crispy cookies topped with peanut butter and covered in fudge


These are my all time favorite I ate the whole box in 1 day. While it is easy to get knock off ones, I still like to buy the official girl scout cookies. These cookies will always be classic to me.


French toast flavored cookies with vanilla icing


These are new to the Girl Scout line up and when I saw them I had to get them as I love french toast. These cookies after having them especially with milk are now in my top favorites.

Thin Mints

Crispy chocolate wafers dipped in a mint fudge coating


Thin mints are a Girl Scouts classic. With their mild mint chocolate flavor how can you go wrong?
