Caramel Apple

Yay to BB for bringing back Caramel Apple! If you didn’t know, you can pick it up online at their web store by clicking here.

I can’t wait to get mine in the mail. I think it is a classic flavor and I always like anything -apple flavored that BB does. The drizzle-y caramel packaging is cute too!

If that got you in the Autumn/Halloween spirit like it did me, I recommend the yummy Halloween collection from a few years ago (which also has Caramel Apple).

It looks like they are also bringing out some beautiful 6-pack tins for the holidays, sort of like the Skittles ones they did awhile ago. So far I’ve spotted The Little Mermaid, Minnie, and milkshake themed tins.

I’ll probably be grabbing the Ariel tin because it appears to have redone labels and flavor names.

Please let me know if you spot anything else! This is a BUSY & fun time of year for us addicts, ha πŸ˜€

I have some cool news! Last summer I posted a preview of what the new retro Dr Pepper biggy Lip Smacker might look like and it turned out to be pretty accurate–

Dr Pepper 2013 Retro Lip Smacker





It should be available in Target veeeeery soon

Dr Pepper Retro Smacker




Here it is next to the other recent Dr Pepper biggy


(sorry for the bad pictures, it’s a super shiny tube and it was really hard to photograph!)


Pretty sure I have this logo on a t-shirt somewhere, ha πŸ˜€

vintage-dr-pepper-logo-t-shirt-galleryI won’t comment on the formula since we all know it is perfection, so I’ll just say I’m liking the design a lot especially the darker red color and worn look.

The retro styles BB have done this year are FUN & I’m happy they decided to go through with this one!

Fanta Grape, Fanta Orange, Sprite

Fanta Grape, Fanta Orange, Sprite

After looking through some older blog posts I realized I never posted about these! Four soda biggies (or pop, if you will :)) were released in total last year– Coca Cola came to North America while Fanta Grape, Fanta Orange, and Sprite were exclusively available overseas (Netherlands, New Zealand etc).

Awww, a picture of the family

A picture of the whole family. Aww πŸ™‚

While they are exactly the same as their more modestly sized counterparts, collectors should definitely grab them while they can as these are not easy to find.

Sprite and Fanta Orange came paired with Coke in a boxed set overseas which probably makes Fanta Grape the rarest of the set. Have any of our non-American readers bought these?

Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake

I know Strawberry Shortcake has been out for a bit but I never made a post!

Is everyone loving it? How do you think it stacks up against the other new strawberry flavors we’ve gotten this year?

They definitely nailed the shortcake aspect so I’m a fan πŸ™‚ This and Strawberry Coconut have been my favorite recent strawberries.

Remember it’s a limited edition flavor so grab a few when you see it!


Hi everyone! Happy 4th!

I thought this would be the perfect time to share the limited edition trio set created back in 2001 in remembrance of 9/11.

September 11th Lip Smackers

September 11th Lip Smackers

I love these because even though they were made in response to a tragic point in US history, they are still the epitome of what Lip Smackers are about– fun colors, positivity, and deliciousness. These patriotic smackers are perfect!

Strawberry Stripes

Strawberry Stripes

The set opens with a metallic Lip Smacker called Strawberry Stripes, and what better flavor is there to represent the color red but classic smacker strawberry? It was a milestone in Lip Smacker history and fits right at home in this trio.


Sweet Liberty

Sweet Liberty

Sweet Liberty is a shimmery sweet vanilla featuring the Statue of Liberty which might just be one of my all-time favorite designs.

America the Blue-tiful

America the Blue-tifulΒ 




And then there is America the Blue-tiful, a berry flavor that is sparkly from head to toe. I love this one too because… ahh, sparkles! And the name! πŸ™‚
