Your Taco Tuesday is getting a sweet and chewy makeover!

New Late Night Taco Truck jelly beans from Brach’s are hitting store shelves now, offering full taco night flavors in the palm of your hand. The jelly beans are meant to offer an entire Mexican-style dining experience, so along with a Beef Taco flavor, you’ll also get Margarita, Salsa, Guacamole, Horchata and Churro.

The jelly beans are not yet on Brach’s website, so we don’t have information on how long they’ll be around, but they are currently at multiple retailers nationwide. While prices vary, you can find them at WalmartTarget and Walgreens. There’s a chance they will be available in other stores eventually as well, at a manufacturer-recommended price of $4.29 for one 12-ounce pack or two packs for $7.

Candy fans that have already tried the jelly beans are taking to social media to review them. TikTok user @bootlegfoodreview gave the highest scores to the drink flavors, awarding 8 out of 10 stars to both the margarita and horchata jelly beans.

Churro and beef taco were next, scoring 5 out of 10, but he gave only 3 out of 10 to salsa, calling it “nasty,” and 2 out of 10 to guacamole, which he said “tastes like sweet dirt.”

While these are no doubt some pretty unique jelly bean flavors, they’re not that surprising when you consider some of the candy corn flavors we’ve seen from the brand.

Brach’s gave the traditional Halloween candy a makeover in 2017, launching cookie-flavored candy corn. Then, in 2020, the candy company followed that up with different flavors for Thanksgiving 2020 (which returned the following year). Their Thanksgiving Dinner candy corn included all the traditional flavors: roasted turkey, green beans, stuffing, ginger-glazed carrots, cranberry sauce and sweet potato pie.

Not up for candy that tastes like savory meal options? Dunkin’s iced coffee-flavored jelly beans are back for Easter, coming in six flavors: Toasted Coconut, Hazelnut, French Vanilla, Caramel Latte and Butter Pecan.

The jelly beans that mirror Dunkin’s iced coffee menu are available for $3.99 at retailers nationwide including Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, Five Below, Rite Aid and Big Lots. You can also order them online at Amazon and FrankfordCandy.com for a limited time.

Snickers salad & 3 other weird desserts that are actually good

 

 

There are two things that make me save a recipe when I see it: it’s easy, and it can be used for multiple seasons. While I love a great peppermint dessert around the holidays, I’m much more inclined to try a recipe if I can use it over and over again.

This Snickers salad recipe from Simply Stacie checks all my boxes, as not only is it incredibly easy to make, but it would be great at a spring picnic, summer barbecue, a Halloween party or even as an addition to a work potluck or bridal or baby shower.

 

Betty Crocker

 

The Snickers salad takes just minutes to whip up and calls for only a few ingredients, such as pudding, apples, Cool Whip, caramel and, of course, Snickers. Because it has all the makings of a great summer dessert, but also the fall flavors of caramel and apples, Snickers salad is as versatile as it is easy.

While you can make the salad ahead of time, it’s best served cold on the same day you make it. You can choose any apples you wish, but Granny Smiths may work best because they are tart and crunchy. You can see the full recipe at Simply Stacie.

If you’d like to add even more goodies to the mix, you can include everything from grapes to mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, peanuts, toffee bits or crushed pretzels.

You could also try a mixture of toppings, like Fannie Mae’s S’mores Snack Mix or Nestle Toll House’s new pumpkin spice latte-flavored Morsels & More, which includes an assortment of white morsels, mini coffee biscuits and pumpkin spice-flavored chunks.

Snickers salad’s origins are in the upper Midwest, according to Atlas Obscura, where the recipe is sometimes seen in church cookbooks. And there are many variations on this classic salad.

Betty Crocker has their own version, which they call Snickers apple pie dip. Betty Crocker suggests dunking apples in it instead of including them in the salad itself. Instead of chopped-up apples, they add apple pie filling to the mix, but the rest of the recipe is the same.

There are a few similar dessert salad recipes out there as well. Pistachio fluff is a classic, combining Cool Whip, marshmallows, pineapple and pistachio pudding mix.

Also known as watergate salad, it’s often served at picnics and barbecues, but it also makes a great addition to Christmas dinner because of it’s bright green color, and if you choose to cherries, red and green colors! You could also use cranberries instead of pistachios to make a festive red cranberry fluff salad that will really invoke the flavors of the holiday season.

Similar to these fluff salads, ambrosia salad combines pineapple, coconut, whipped topping, marshmallows and sometimes cherries, nuts or mandarin oranges.

This recipe for ambrosia pie tastes just like the salad but has a graham cracker crust. It’s as easy as simply making the salad like you normally would, then spooning it into a pre-made graham cracker pie crust.
