Warm Delights

Nobody should let themselves die without trying one of these:

I'm not kidding! They're my guilty pleasure. My favorite is the Molten Carmel Cake shown above. I never buy them unless there's a sale AND I have a coupon because they seem pretty expensive to me. (I guess it's all relative though. I mean, I'm willing to spend a few bucks on an ice cream cone for a treat, but I have a hard time spending $1.50 for one of these, when the satisfaction I get from both treats is the same. I'm an idiot.) Anyway, I was pretty skeptical before trying these because it's just cake. But, oh, it's not just cake. It's amazing cake with caramel drizzled throughout. And the best part is that all you have to do is add water and microwave it for like a minute and you have an instant, warm, and delicious treat in a bowl. No dishes to do or anything!

Like I mentioned above, the only bad thing about these decadent Warm Delights is the price. They're unfortunately placed right next to the boxed cake mixes and they're usually about $1.50 or more, which is double the price of a normal cake mix and you get like 1/6 the amount of cake. So, my practical side often thinks about the price per serving and I can't talk myself into getting one. But I guess since you only have to add water (no eggs or oil) and it comes with its own topping, and it's quick and mess-free, it's not too bad. How's that for justification?

The other downfall is the size. I have a larger-than-normal appetite for desserts so even though the back of the box tells me that it's enough for 2, this is not so for me. I need the whole thing. So, do what I do and hide it in the cupboard until your spouse goes upstairs and then whip it out and enjoy. Viola! You get the whole thing to yourself and your spouse doesn't know what he/she's missing. It's a win-win situation.

So here's the deal on the deal. As Mandy noted on her blog, Albertson's has them as part of their 10 for $10 promotion. So if you're in need of any of these items, pick up a couple Warm Delights to finish off your 10 items, which will make them $1 each. Then use the coupon found here (or on Mandy's sidebar) to get $.55 off each one. So, in the end, these will cost $.45 each, and they are COMPLETELY and UTTERLY worth this price! I want to get 8. Anybody want to print me off some extra coupons? (You can also go here to print a coupon for $.50 off (print it twice if you can), as well as other coupons you could use in conjunction with the Alberton's deal. So if you print all the coupons, you will end up with Warm Delights for either $.50 or $.45, both of which are amazing prices!)

So, go. Go now. This is your chance to try one. Fall for peer pressure just this once. You'll thank me later.

Carlee,
I can print you off some coupons for these if you need some. I haven't printed them on my computer yet and I have already done the sale. Just call me if you need them.

I LOVE these...they usually have them on sale at Albertsons for a pretty good price. I like the mini ones--they are so cute and tasty.

Duh--you totally mentioned albertsons and I forgot--It's been a LONG morning..sorry.

Oh I love these. So I followed your advice and printed the coupon but it says you can only use one per purchase....so can you really get all of them for .45 cents. Educate us not to thrifty coupon shoppers. Cause I am going to stock up on these.

Okay, so grabbed one of these awhile back on one of these Albertson's deals and I still haven't tried it! I keep forgetting I have it. I'm such a dork. After reading this I think I will be eating it for dessert tonight!

Melissa,
You can only use one coupon per item, but you can use multiple coupons and buy multiple items in one transaction. So, you can buy 8 Warm Delights and use 8 separate coupons. Some stores double coupons, but it's pretty rare. I don't believe you can use a $.55 off coupon and a $.50 off coupon for the same item. You can just use one or the other.

I got these last time there was a sale and I had coupons. I got the mini ones though and they weren't as mini as I thought they were going to be when I opened the package. Don't get me wrong...I could easily eat 4 time more but this was a good way to pratice self control. Thanks for more coupon links.

I'm a little late on the comment! Sorry! Anyway, Ryan and I love these. They are our secret little pleasures. When the kids go to bed and we sit down to watch our shows, we often induldge ourselves in one of these sweet treats. We love them as well.
