In the mood for food...the real kind!

So after featuring some tantalizing teasers from Frosted Fakes, I wanted to feature some "real" food that you can buy and enjoy, not that you can't enjoy a fake box of chocolates, but you know what I mean. Something you can not only look at, but sink your teeth into. Here are some of my favorites--some I have tried and others I am on the verve of hitting "Submit Order."

First lets start with these "oh-my!-I-can't stop-eating-them-they-are-so-good" sweet and spicy pecans from Cocktail Party.

These are so UNBELIEVABLY delicious---they really are "love at first bite." You can't just eat one. Really. At first you get the crunch and the sweet, and then the spice kicks in and your tastebuds start dancing around and then you reach for another and the magic happens all over. My mouth is watering just thinking about them! And if you really aren't in the mood for spice, there is a new "Sweet and Salty" that I have yet to try. Mmmmmmmmmmmm...can't wait to get my hands on those!

And now for something I haven't tried and I am wondering if anyone has. They are these scrumptious looking caramels from Caramel Jubilee. They come in a variety of flavors like Vanilla, Chocolate, Licorice, Pomegranate and even Pumpkin! I am so ready to try these out, but I am afraid of addiction because I love caramels!

And now for some C-H-O-C-O-L-A-T-E!
Oh yes...choooooooooocolate! What girls doesn't need a chocolate fix every now and then? Well, for me it's more 'now' than 'then.'

I have had my eye on these for a while. These look so incredible and I am sure they taste just as good as they look. They are Minty French Stars from Carnival. If anyone has tried these, please share (literally would be great!). I may have to just take the plunge myself. The shop also features another favorite of mine: POPCORN! And not just any popcorn, but Cinnamon Bliss, Cherry Yogurt, and a chocolate, coffee, graham cracker flavor called Rocket Fuel.

So please share if you have tried any of these sweets. I am sure they would all make great gifts too---if you can stop yourself from stealing a bite...or two...or three!
