The Snacks of Fall

  1. Ahhh.. fall has arrived. My favorite time of year. Does anyone have any favorite snacks that SCREAM fall? A snack that you only have around fall?

    I have two:
    Pretzels with cold apple cider.
    Caramel apples (this one I don't indulge in much, but I love them!)

    Does anyone else have a favorite snack that you indulge only in fall?

    I just love love LOVE October/November. I love the beginning of October, and my favorite time of year is between Halloween and Thanksgiving.

    Back to the snacks... anyone have any that they love this time of year?

    I dearly love mulled cider. I love to make a bunch and sip on it. Very hot, too. And, when the munchies hit, I gotta have lemon squares.

    I love hot apple cider. I haven't had any yet this year but I will soon. I did have some pumpkin icecream today, it was sooooo good!

    Yes!! How could I forget pumpkin!! I LOVE pumpkin...

    Also, I love the taste of a hot dog cooked out on a fire after a hayride. Something about the fall air and cooking over a fall campfire... yum!

    Hot chocolate works, too, as well as the hot apple cider.

    Ohhh. I really LOVE FALL.

    Tangerines. Cider, hot cider, spiced cider. Cider donuts.
    Really crisp apples, especially Macouns. Apple pie and apple crisp.
    Not just snack stuff- in the fall I start to crave and cook hot, stick-to-your-ribs meals instead of salad-type stuff: soups, warm, baked breads, cassaroles, tea. This thread is making me drool!

    Oh, absolutely. There's a brand of Edy's ice cream that is only available around fall. Except that I couldn't find it last year, at least where I live. It's called Cinnamon Stick (I think.) Its a cinnamon vanilla with cinnamon swirls in it. Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmy. :chuckle

    Roasted pumpkin seeds with cold apple cider - combo I've loved together since I was a kid.

    It isn't fall to me until I've had a slice of pumpkin pie with whipped cream!!!

    You are making me soooo hungry but it's a good feeling

    For me... hot chocolate, pumpkin pie both, especially... but most everything on here too! Cinnamon-y and warm this time of year, hits the spot!

    Also... now is the best time for a hot bowl of oatmeal in the mornings!

    A little OT: anyone else ever read that book about "animal crackers and cocoa to drink"? this thread makes me think about that book... "Animal crackers and cocoa to drink; this is the finest of suppers, I think; When I am old and can do as I please, I think I shall always insist upon these!"

    Hot apple cider (nothing like getting home from work on a cold day, curling up under an afghan on the couch with a good book and a cup of that stuff, and "Golden Girls" playing on TV)

    Spice tea (decaf) before bed.

    Pumpkin seeds.

    Chex mix.

    Hot cocoa.

    Heated V8 Spicy Hot juice (works great for the sinuses).
