Fall is my favorite season of all, so it’s no surprise I maximize my celebration of these colorful leaf shedding months to the fullest extent.

I picked this one up from my local Sam’s Club that has 3 separate packages of 22 cookies in the same box. It’s a fabulous spot to stock up on General Mills seasonal essentials.
