Nestle Toll House Pumpkin Spice Morsels

Nestle Toll House Pumpkin Spice Morsels are in a line of "morsels" that take  the place of chocolate chips in baking recipes. They are a seasonal "fall" product.

Review: As should be expected these are very sweet and have an overall texture similar to other "morsels".  They have a bright orange color which can add a decorative touch to seasonal baked goods.

The flavor is spot on for a cheerfully unsubtle baking chip.  There is a slightly savory pumpkin-like base, a touch of warm spice, and a slightly salty aftertaste that enhancing the core flavors even more.

If you want to add a bold, cheerful, pumpkin spice touch to cookies, blondies, etc these morsels would be a great choice. The Nestle site has a range of suitable recipes.

In many cases the Aldi knock-of brands are as good as the "real thing".  But Bakers Corner pumpkin spice morsels are definitely not an example of this.  Okay in a pinch but 5/10 at best with  one-note flavor that I suspect most would struggle to identify in a blind taste test.
