My Pancake Deal Adventure @ Meijer

A glimpse into my deal seeking adventures- 10 boxes of Cinnabon pancakes for $12, a little over $1 a box. Normally $2.50 a box. Now, the big question- do we like pancakes that much?

We have a chest freezer, so they won't go bad, but my son Cam, who eats pancakes the most can be finicky. Some days it's Fruit Loops, while others peanut butter toast.

And despite the name, "Cinnabon", they are not super sweet. They have a light cinnamon flavor, not like the cinnamon buns.

Costco- Thumbs Up!

The black and white cookies may not have worked out, but I tried their Potato Straws (Cheddar Cheese) recently and they are incredible. It has all natural ingredients, 0g Trans Fat, and no Preservatives. They also come in Veggie Chips and Veggie Staws.

And no, I'm not getting paid or getting freebies from the company, I just love the product!

The Black and White Cookie test

I used to go to NYC back in college (it was a 2-hour train ride away) and I loved to get black and white cookies. I moved out to Ohio 10+ years ago and haven't had an authentic black and white cookie since. So, when my sister's bridal shower came around this past May, I asked my mother in law (who is an awesome baker and cook) to make a batch as favors. She did and they were incredible-light, fluffy lemony cookie with a sweet frosting.

So today I was excited to find them at Costco, as I haven't seen them in any bakery or store around here. I just tried the version Costco sells, as pictured above. Sorry Costco, they don't compare to my mother in law's (or the ones in NYC!)
