- Cedar’s Organic Hot Honey Hommus
Did I ever think this would make our “5 Best Things” list? No. Hot honey hummus? I was skeptical. Much to my surprise, it tastes good! The hot honey topping is crunchy and plentiful. It’s a little sweet. My favorite aspect is that it’s actually spicy. This would be great on some pretzel chips if you’re looking for a sweet, spicy, and creamy snack.
- Amy’s Gluten Free Frozen Broccoli & Cheddar Bake Meal Bowls
You can’t even tell this Amy’s frozen meal is gluten free. In fact, it’s better than a lot of the non-gluten free frozen meals we’ve had here at Sporked. The pasta is al dente. The cheese is creamy. The broccoli is nice and tender without being mushy. There’s even a crunchy breadcrumb topping. Yum!
- Trader Joe’s Maple Flavored Fudge
This stuff is decadent. It’s rich and maple-y and super sweet. I also love that it tastes more expensive than it is. I would be thrilled to receive this in my Christmas stocking or as a little housewarming gift. And you don’t need much to satisfy your sweet tooth. This is one of the best Trader Joe’s seasonal products we’ve tried.
- Trader Joe’s Bambino Pepperoni Pizza
These personal pizzas are top-notch. They’re the perfect size for a snack or light lunch. With a little side salad, they would make a great dinner, too. This small pizza is saucy and cheesy. The pepperoni has a nice spice. It’s everything you want from a pizza in a single serving size.
- Spicy Chicken Garlic Bacon Hot Ones Hot Pocket
Oh boy! These haven’t hit the market quite yet, but just get ready when they do. This is like spicy chicken enchilada filling in a hot pocket. I am already sad about the fact that these won’t be around forever. Unless…?
