The cooler temperatures have settled in here in New York state. During winter, we can look forward to winding down and spending more time indoors under warm blankets.

During the cooler months, we also tend to indulge more in our favorite comfort foods. It's convenient and fun to stop by our favorite eateries to grab something to eat.

While we enjoy eating at our favorite local eateries, we may also visit chain restaurants and drive thru's as well.

What Guilty Pleasure Chain Business Will You Always Support?

A poll was taken on WRRV's social media, gathering answers from Hudson Valley residents.

We asked,

"What’s a guilty pleasure chain business that you will always support? 🙌🏼-Allison"

Hudson Valley residents were eager to share their responses such as Olive Garden, Subway, Stewart's, White Castle and more.

Additional answers can be found on their website. McDonald's was included in guilty pleasure chain businesses that Hudson Valley residents support.

Facebook users were also confused if the beloved Snackwrap will be making a return to McDonald's locations soon.

Personally, I believe that McDonald's has delicious desserts. I have always enjoyed their shakes, McFlurries, chocolate chip cookies and hot fudge sundaes.

Foodies can rejoice with the latest news about McDonald's sweet treats.

A fan favorite dessert is now available at participating McDonald's locations.

Do You Remember These Girl Scout Cookie Flavors?

Can You Remember Your Favorite Girl Scout Cookie growing up?

As much as we enjoy Girl Scout Cookies in 2023, we often miss the ones that we used to love growing up. Have you heard of my personal favorite Girl Scout Cookies that are now retired?

Shortbread cookies are always a win. This Girl Scout Cookie was dipped in chocolate and it also had a friendly message on it. It had the words "Thank You" on it.

Ole Oles
These powdered sugar cookies were delicious. They also had pecans and coconut mixed in and were reduced fat.

Lemon Chalet Creme
This was one of my favorite lemon cookies to ever exist. How could a lemon sandwich cookie ever go wrong? The added cinnamon and ginger made it one of a kind.

I remember that these cookies were named after the founder of The Girl Scouts, Juliette Low. It reminded me of a chocolate turtle with its being covered in caramel, pecans and milk chocolate.

Ra Ra Raisens
This was unlike your ordinary raisin cookie. This Girl Scout Cookie brought in oatmeal and yogurt chips with the raisins.

Savannah Smiles
This Girl Scout Cookie knew how to put a smile on your face. They were lemon wedge cookies with powdered sugar.

Which Girl Scout Cookies Are Your Favorite?

I loved the Girl Scout Cookies that were discontinued but also enjoy the present day one as well.
