Truth. I always MEAN to drink more tea, because it's delicious and good for you! But for some inexplicable reason, it just never happens. I have such a vast array of teas, just sitting.

The exception is an AMAZING ginger tea that was sent to me during a PPK holiday swap two years ago. I went through that stuff like lightning. I couldn't drink enough of it. I think I have one tea bag left because I'm trying to save it. Because that makes sense.

I only bought the Harvest Tea since they didn't have the pumpkin rooibos anymore :( But it's really good. A bit sweet and spicy. I pretty much live on tea in the winter,though.

DC, what brand is the ginger tea? I've tried tons and the one I keep going back to is Tazo's Spicy Ginger.

Ooh, I'm interested in a ginger tea, too. I've tried just steeping real ginger, but it just doesn't thrill me.

If we're thinking of the same handcreams (pack of 3 in foil tubes), I looked at them today and they contain honey.

That is great and terrible news! (I will eat them all much too quickly).

I keep a separate TJ's shopping list on my phone. Can't forget Joe-Joe's and harvest tea this week.

Ugh, I've never had the candy cane jojos, but they sound delicious. I may have to go get some of these.

Me too! And it's always growing thanks to this thread. I gotta go stock up on Joe Joes now.

I LOVE the Pumpkin Rooibos tea - and I'm not generally a tea person. I conveniently got a cold a couple days after I bought it and it saved me.

WHAT?! YESSSSSSS!!!!! I was just there the other day and they didn't have any so they must be slowly trickling in. For now I bought two packages of Candy Cane Oreo's.

I got some Joe-Joe's, some Harvest tea, and those cranberry-stuffed turkey things. I checked out the Gardein version for a price comparison, and they were $9.99 at my WF and $8.75 at the hfs. So I hope these ones are as good!

I got so excited for this but they haven't made it to Pasadena yet. I was forced to buy useless things like sandwich bread instead of stocking up on this ever important pantry staple.

I was wondering! Whole Foods candy cane sandwich cookies were out, but if don't think they're vegan? I can't remember.

I definitely got two packs do the stuffed turk'y things. I'm pretty excited about them. (Found prices same as you, Amy--unsurprisingly.)

This might be weird, but I opened the candy cane Joe-Joe's, and I was surprised by how... hard (?) they were. Like, the cookie seemed thicker and sturdier, and the cream part wasn't as soft as I was expecting. I have eaten these many, many times, but maybe I just didn't remember what they were like.

The Harvest tea is delicious! I used two teabags, because I like tea as strong as possible, and I think that was maybe too much, that's how flavorful it is. And it's sweet! I was so glad I didn't have to add anything.

I was looking at those WF cookies today and they looked vegan, the gingerbread ones too. I didn't read the label super carefully though since I wasn't buying them today, maybe closer to the holidays I will. It feels too early for that stuff for me.

Yay for holiday treats! Picked up my candy cane joe joe's, my candy cane green tea, my after dinner mint chocolate thingies...this post is making me realize how gaga I am for mint and chocolate! Oh, I also picked up two bags of the turkey stuffed roast frozen things. I am cautiously optimistic about them.

Maybe it's the thing then how it's labeled as vegetarian but not vegan. WF does that with some things, and it makes me think that I'm missing something. They have a couple of cereals that look vegan, but are only labeled as vegetarian. No vitamin D added, honey, or dairy. It makes me randomly grumpy.

Now I want harvest tea, but have none. Harumph!

Ugh, I was just at my tj's yesterday and they didn't have the candy cane jo jos yet, but I did buy 3 boxes of candy cane tea, yum.

Wegman's has a candy cane sandwich cookie now, too, but I haven't looked at the ingredients yet.

Nope! At least I hope not. Mine had them this weekend. I went a while without seeing them though, and actually asked the same question.

Has anyone made anything with the pumpkin bread/muffin mix? How sweet is it? Is it cake sweet the way banana bread is really cake and the way lots of muffins are really cake? Or is it really more of a bread and not very sweet? I'm thinking of saving some time and using it as the base for a dessert, but wondering if I might need to add some more sugar to make it sweet enough for use in dessert.

I am late on this but just returned from Trader Joe's and was able to restrain myself by only buying one treat - coconut cashews - omg these are amazing! "Like crack," I told my husband, who wanted to know when I've tried crack.

Rhizo - the pumpkin bread is definitely sweet like banana bread. I made it once with egg replacer, and it was good!

Thanks Amy! I'm thinking of going all out and replacing the egg with: pumpkin!
