Phil & Mel In The Afternoon

Weekdays 8:30AM-10:00AM; 3:00PM-7:00PM

Is it too early for fall? NOPE! When I was younger, I loved summer. I loved the pool, the hot sun, and even the sweating didn’t bother me. Heck, I used to work out at 1 p.m. in the summer when I lived in Columbia, and that’s the hottest place ever!

Now, I go outside to take the dogs for a walk and I feel like I’m melting. I’m sure it’s age combined with some other factors. The sun and I are just not close now.

Fall is my love now! I’ve always been a fan of all the seasons, which is one of the cool things about living in this area. But fall is now my favorite. I long for cooler days and leaves on the ground. Not only do I love the cooler temps, but fall food is also my favorite. Thanksgiving is my all-time favorite fat girl eating holiday! I’m also a Halloween fan and I dig all things pumpkin! And yes, that includes pumpkin spice stuff.

Nestle Toll House is also ready for fall! Their Pumpkin Spice Cookie Dough will arrive in stores next month! The limited-edition flavor will be in grocery stores all over. The product arrived on the scene in 2014 but was then removed for a few years. It’s back this year and I gotta try it! I don’t remember it from years ago, so I’m on it this year.

These festive precut cookies—which are mixed with delicious white morsels—are specifically pumpkin spice-flavored. You’ll get the entire fall experience early! Woo-Hoo! The Pumpkin Spice Cookie Dough will be available in 14-ounce packs and will hit shelves at the beginning of August. You may wanna stock up since there’s no word on when they’ll be available again.
