New year, new me ... new munchies! Forget the New Year's Resolutions, especially if they involve the gym, healthier eating or anything like that and indulge in these new flavors hitting grocery stores and restaurants near you! Whether you're looking for something savory to enjoy during the late-midnight hours or a delicious snack after you blow some steam or smoke or both: these are some interesting munchies hitting the shelves for the first time this year!

  • Starbucks Boba Tea - Starbucks is currently testing their own rendition of Boba Tea with Boba iced coffee drinks, complete with their own "coffee pearls".
  • Girl Scouts Salted Caramel Brownie Cookie - We all love Girl Scouts Cookies and this year they're bringing the new "Adventurfuls" described as "indulgent brownie-inspired cookies with caramel-flavored crème and a hint of sea salt". Give me … all of them!
  • Pillsbury Rainbow Donut Mix - Pillsbury has changed the game by capitalizing on the already popular Funfetti flavor by introducing it for donuts! Yum!
  • Dolly Parton & Jenis' Strawberry Pretzel Pie Ice Cream - This one's an oldie but a goodie! Dolly Parton's highly requested collaboration with Jenis’ Ice Cream aka the Strawberry Pretzel Ice Cream makes a return!
