The Frozen set is so beautiful you guys! I love this as much (maybe more) than the Disney villain’s collection, and that is saying a lot. The designs are lovely AND they included Kristoff, Sven, and Olaf with the girls 😀

disney-frozen-smackersChilled Cranberry Grape and Ice Pop are so good ahhh… I think I have an Ice Pop problem. These are must have smackers.ice-pop-cranberry-grape


This is a very well done themed set–the flavor choice for each character is amazing. Kudos to whoever came up with Coconut Snowball for Olaf 😀

(more holiday stuff coming by the end of the week!)


Minnie Mouse looks bashfully cute in the new Minnie Mouse Cosmetic Collection, which features 3 smackers in Snowball Cookie, Bubble Gum, and Cranberry Jelly, alongside a re-appearance of the Cupcake glitter gloss & ‘Bubble Pink’ nail polish. 



I was a bit surprised at the flavors chosen since the design doesn’t seem to scream the holidays, and Bubble Gum is sort of the odd flavor out isn’t it? But it works, and I’m happy to say Cranberry Jelly is the star of the trio.

Cranberry-anything is a good one in my book 🙂



Gumdrop Pop and Peppermint Candy duo also pops up in a similarly designed set called Marvelous Minnie-



And Disney Princess fans will be pleased to see the Amazing Aurora 4-pack… it even manages to sneak in the fairy godmothers and another Maleficent smacker 😀



From left to right: Dream Pop, Strawberry Shortcake, Vanilla Cake, and Fruit Tart.

I love Fruit Tart, it proves how trend-aware BB’s flavor releases are. A lovely set, though you’re not hallucinating if some of the art seems familiar.


There are a lot more holiday goodies coming up this week, so check back to stay in the flavor loop. Also, if you don’t see these for sale locally don’t fret! They’re not supposed to hit stores until mid-October.

pumpkin-latteFuture fall favorite, Pumpkin Latte, has been showing up online and in stores already! Though I’m reaching for more tropical flavors in this 90 degree heat, this smacker has been fun to try out.

But surprisingly it isn’t as heavy or potentially overwhelming as the name would imply. This is probably because there aren’t really any latte notes–it’s more of a nice spiced cookie. I think it’s a good (though inaccurately named) addition!



lip-smacker-pretzelThe newest novelty arrivals, Buttered Popcorn, Red Licorice, Salted Pretzel, and Cherry Snow Cone, bring back a couple of old favorites and some new.

It’s a fun set, with Salted Pretzel being the most ambitious of the bunch. Unfortunately it misses the mark– it’s hard to describe exactly what it smells like, but it’s not good. Maybe a vaguely burnt scent? I’ve spent a lot of time trying to figure this one out and I’m still not sure!


Buttered Popcorn is a throwback that everyone looks forward to (it was a 90’s staple after all) and this version is an OK redo of the classic smacker. However this one is very heavy on the butter and light on the popcorn which some people won’t like.

Red Licorice and Cherry Snow Cone both fall under the Cherry family tree, with neither of them being uniquely Smacker flavors. I was hoping for an in-your-face licorice formula but it’s actually a very light cherry Twizzler scent. Cherry Snow Cone is a sweeter version of the regular Cherry smacker, so if you like that you will love this.

So far these are the weakest of the novelty flavors, but at least their adorableness remains intact!


I figured Bonne Bell had more than exceeded their surprise quota this year with the introduction of the amazing novelty smackers, but after finding these at Target consider me educated… and happily shocked.

Eight new smackers, each set delightfully themed with ice cream and donuts in mind:

Presenting the Sensational Sundae collection:


and the Delectable Donuts collection:


Where did these come from?! Who do I have to blame / thank?! 😀

Toppings that make you go mmm: Creamy Caramel, French Vanilla, Hot Fudge, and Strawberry Glaze


Donuts for every meal: Confetti Sprinkles, Raspberry Jelly, Cake Donut, and Strawberry Frosting


hot-fudge-smackerSo pretty 🙂 Bonne Bell really perfected these in a few ways; the packaging is a perfect balance between old-school and new, and the tube colors are gorgeous! I love Strawberry Frosting’s retro milkshake pink, and the Hot Fudge/Strawberry Glaze pairing. I’ve been dreaming about a black tube for awhile and this comes close enough…



A rainbow of treats


They all have lovely scents that really come out after first use. The richness of Creamy Caramel and French Vanilla are sooo nice. Hot Fudge is very reminiscent of the 90’s Strawberry/Raspberry Chocolate duo (and M&M) smackers. Strawberry Glaze is super tart (yum) and has mild color, while Raspberry Jelly is super sweet. Interestingly, Strawberry Frosting has a mild minty note that keeps reminding me of mid-2000 flavors… maybe it’s just me.

I can’t comment on Cake Donut and Confetti Sprinkles because I can never tell with those types of balms 😛 They’re all the same to me!

So, this release gets a high grade from me. What do you guys think?

Also can anyone tell me if Strawberry Glaze is similar to the jewel capped Strawberry Garnet Glaze? I don’t have an open one to test and I can’t remember!
