WHAT’S NEW – 3/2/2012

Written by | March 2, 2012

Topics: Kashi, Tostitos, V8

New products are released all the time and here are some we found on our most recent shopping trips. We may or may not review them, but we’d like to let you know what new items are popping up on store shelves.

V8 V-Fusion Sparkling

V8 continues to try and get us to consume fruits and vegetables in liquid form with their new V8 V-Fusion Sparking beverage. The lightly carbonated fruit juice comes in packs of four and in three flavors: Tangerine Raspberry, Black Cherry Pomegranate, and Strawberry Lemonade. One can has 60 calories, 0 fat, and provide one combined serving of vegetables and fruit. Drink What reviewed the Tangerine Raspberry and Black Cherry Pomegranate flavors.

Kashi Steam Meals

First, it was Lean Cuisine. Then, Weight Watcher Smart Ones. Now, Kashi is throwing their hat into into microwaveable bagged meal ring with their Steam Meals line. There are four varieties: Chicken Fettuccine, Roasted Garlic Chicken Farfalle, Sesame Chicken, and Spinach & Artichoke Pasta. The bagged entrees don’t contain any artificial ingredients, but do contain Kashi’s obligatory 7 Whole Grains.

Tostitos Artisan Recipes Baked Three Cheese Queso

Tostitos has expanded their Artisan Recipes tortilla chip line with a new flavor — Baked Three Cheese Queso. The three cheeses are Cheddar, Swiss, and Monterey Jack. The chips are made with 100 percent natural ingredients and are made using a 9 grain blend (take that Kashi and your 7 grains!). I didn’t see them during my trip to the store, but according to the Frito-Lay website, there’s another new Tostitos Artisan Recipes flavor — Toasted Southwestern Spices.

Egg-Land's Best Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs

Finally, I saw these Egg-Land’s Best Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs and thought to myself that these are perfect for those who don’t know how to boil water. But not only are they already hard-boiled, they’re also pre-peeled. This product has to be the easiest and cleanest way to eat an egg. Time to celebrate lazy egg eaters!

If you’re out shopping and see a new product on the shelf, snap a picture of it, email it to us at theimpulsivebuy@gmail.com, and you might see it in our next What’s New post.

    Think we can pass on the eggs. We have our own chickens!

      Mmm, nothing beats fresh eggs from your own free-range birds! Well, for hard-boiling it’s better to let them age a little if you want the peel to come off easily (though I’m sure there are other tricks), but… uh yeah. Not interested in buying a bag of slimy pre-peeled eggs.

    Whatever happened to the Berry Slice flavors??

    I think there was a diet grape and maybe just a berry flavor. They were diet.

    They were on Wal Mart shelves here in NC maybe about 4-5 years ago??? They were so good, I didn’t need desert!

    The Tostitos name makes no sense. Baked Three Cheese Cheese? What?

  4. Yawnie says:

    I like it! More like a consumer report type post but of course it still has the bit of TIB wit.
    I wanna try the already peeled hard boiled eggs. I was looking up how to instructions. Apparently you’re supposed to use older eggs, bring the water to a rolling boil (for how long???), let it sit covered for a certain # of minutes depending on the size, spin it to see if it’s done, but really can’t tell until you crack it open?!?
    Ok I am a cooking newbie :p

    i bought a few of the kashi spinach & artichoke pasta meals last month. they aren’t too bad at all. i also tried the newer three cheese penne, which is really great. but, for some reason, my all time favorite is their mayan harvest bake. yum.

  6. Cliff says:

    The eggs sound like a great shortcut for deviled eggs or salad sandwiches.

  7. Kevin says:

    I tried the peeled eggs from Eggland’s Best about three weeks ago. They were delicious. However, as I ate one, I looked at the package of perfectly-peeled eggs, and I wondered this: who’s grubby hands peeled the eggs so perfectly? If someone peeled your egg (besides your mother), would you eat it or would you rather peel it yourself? :)
