Hy-Vee HSTV Amazing New Products

This is a sponsored blog; while the views expressed here were genuinely mine, consideration was paid to me by Hy-Vee.

Not too long ago I received a “What’s New” box from Helpful Smiles TV, HSTV) which is an online streaming network by Hy-Vee, containing just a few items to try out for summer. As a fond foodie and someone who loves to share all things new in the grocery aisle, I took this challenge on with a smile. Be sure to check out the entire video episode below and follow our experience as well as those from fellow “What’s New at Hy-Vee” participants, Brandon from The Rookie Dad and Kristen from Make the Best of Everything. 

Let’s talk about a few of our favorites from the “What’s New at Hy-Vee” box!

Nerd Gummy Clusters 

Of all of the new items from Hy-Vee we tried, the Nerd Gummy Clusters were by far the biggest winner of mine. I am a big fan of gummies as well as sour crunch candies like Nerds. Whoever thought of putting them together deserves a prize for being out of the box creative. 

This treat offered the standard gummy texture and taste with the bonus of being covered in the sweet and sour crunch Nerds are known for. Together this makes a fantastic stand alone snack with the benefits of a few additional uses we tried later on: ice cream topping and cake decorations. Be on the look for a recipe coming soon!

Pepsi Mango 

Let’s get honest for a moment, I sorta did cringe when I first thought of what this would taste like. It nearly didn’t make the cut for the items we selected to try out. While my family are soda drinkers, myself not so much. Though mango as a fruit and flavor still remains one of my favorites. So, I thought why not just step out of my drink box and give it a shot. 

Pepsi Mango offered a refreshingly surprising taste. The mango flavor was clear as soon as I took a drink. Add in the Pepsi sweetness and carbonation and I call it a strong leader in future soda choices. Though, I would be more excited to turn this option into a frozen popsicle style dessert for those hot summer days than a stand alone drink.

It’s Your Churn Cake & Ice Cream 

Raise your hand if one of your favorite parts of a birthday party is the cake and ice cream. Yes, this is me over here waving my hand in the arm like a wild woman! I am a foodie sucker for a good slice of cake and scoop of ice cream but why must I wait for another celebration to have just one more bite? Now, I don’t have to deal with this dilemma with It’s Your Churn Cake & Ice Cream {flavor}. 

What’s one of the worst ways to ruin a great slice of cake? Becoming soggy from the ice cream melting, right? That is not an issue here. I have no clue how It’s Your Churn did it, but the cake remains first jet still moist and flavorful even being surrounded by the creamy deliciousness of the vanilla frosting ice cream. Toss in the rainbow sprinkles and anytime you serve this dessert it is like a party at the dinner table.
