Came across these the other day when I was browsing Target’s Halloween goodies. They have pumpkin spice as well, but that’s being done to death. I love apple cider. Either cold or hot. I wasn’t sure how apple cider yogurt pretzels would taste, but they’re actually pretty good. Honestly, it’s really more of an apple cinnamon flavor to me, which I guess isn’t wrong since apple cider is basically apples and cinnamon. It gives me flashbacks to those old TMNT graham cookies:
Apple cider or not, it’s still good and better than the typical chocolate/white chocolate yogurt you typically see pretzels covered in. Definitely worth picking up if apple cinnamon is your thing.
Halloween is gone, which makes me sad. BUT… now we have Christmas to look forward to and can celebrate the next two months with that in mind. Then it’ll be depression time come January because there’s nothing else to look forward to for like eight months but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.
Even though I live in Florida, we’ve had some nice cool weather today. It was 41 degrees when I woke up and not it’s 60 degrees. There’s a nice breeze going and I have the windows open. All that’s left is for me to kick start the holiday season with a seasonal beverage and a Christmas movie, which I plan on doing very soon this.
From today’s purchases, I think I’m off to a good start this holiday season…
Flannel bed-sheets, Swiss Miss dark chocolate cocoa, Starbucks Holiday Blend coffee and instant spiced apple cider. Instant because I have no clue how to make hot cider on my own and I know I don’t have the ingredients to do so.
Oh, and I’m totally making this a thing now:
Be on the lookout for all kinds of Christmas-inspired posts from now until the end of the year! It’s all a part of the first annual A Misfit Christmas!
I’ve also started up a new Tumblr blog that is all about Christmas called Christmasplosion!. You might see some repeat posts but I’m hoping to use Tumblr as a place where I give post much more (shorter) thoughts and photos regarding the holiday season. Be sure to stop by!
Listening to old-time radio shows, I’ve learned that one big tradition for Halloween parties “back in the day” was apple cider and donuts. During the various Halloween episodes of Jack Benny, they almost always make a reference to serving cider & donuts for the gang’s Halloween party. Since I don’t know a place in the area that makes/sells cider donuts (I miss you, Quality Dairy!), this sounds like the next best thing short of dipping the donuts into the cider, which I wasn’t about to do.
After I worked my second job last night (which was insane before trick-or-treating time and then deader than a zombie afterwards), I decided I would do the traditional cider & donuts along with the cliched viewing of Halloween (one of the all-time horror greats). I have to be honest, after an exhausting evening at work, when I got home around 10:45PM, I was struggling to keep my eyes open. I lasted until 11:45 and then went to bed and finished up the rest of the movie this morning while drinking coffee and eating maple bacon! Even though Halloween has come and gone, I plan on watching Halloween II (almost as good as the original) this afternoon on this lazy wet & gloomy but still warm & humid day.
By the way, I picked up the donuts from the way-too-close-to-my-house-for-my-own-good Dunkin Donuts and got old-fashioned cake donuts along with some sugar raised donuts!
And, yes, that is the 25th Anniversary DVD edition of Halloween. I don’t own the 35th Anniversary Blu-ray. :(
