SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 4/19/2012

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.

Red Baron has a bunch of new frozen pizza products. First off, there’s Red Baron’s Pizza & Sides, which comes in four varieties: Pepperoni Pizza & Buffalo Wyngs, Pepperoni Pizza & Mozzarella Sticks, Cheese Pizza & Buffalo Wyngs, and Supreme Pizza & Mozzarella Sticks. Yes, DiGiorno did it first, but at least Red Baron didn’t combine pizza with cookies.

Next up is Red Baron Feasts for One Thick Pan Pizza. It’s available in three varieties: Pepperoni, Supreme, and MEAT-TRIO. Don’t ask me why MEAT-TRIO is all in caps. But whenever I say Red Baron Thick Pan MEAT-TRIO Pizza, I’m going to shout the MEAT-TRIO part. It’s a personal pizza with a thick, chewy pan-style crust. It cooks in under five minutes. A whole Red Baron Feasts for One Thick Pan Pepperoni Pizza has 680 calories, 28 grams of fat, 14 grams of saturated fat, 1,220 milligrams of sodium, and 28 grams of protein.

According to Red Baron’s website, there are other Red Baron Feasts for One varieties, like their Super Slice (no picture taken, but I did see them) and these Original Crust pizzas. These personal pizzas are significantly wider than the Red Baron Feasts for One Thick Pan Pizzas and come in three flavors: 4-Cheese, Pepperoni, and Supreme. No, I don’t know why there are Asian people on the front of the box. If you were to eat an entire Red Baron Feasts for One Original Crust Pepperoni Pizza you would have consumed 820 calories, 28 grams of fat, 12 grams of saturated fat, 2,140 milligrams of sodium, and 34 grams of protein.

Vitamin Squeeze Water Enhancer is like MiO Liquid Water Enhancer, except it comes in a huge ass bottle. It’s available in four flavors: Acai, Grape, Pomegranate; Fruit Punch; Tropical Citrus; and Peach Green Tea. Each bottle is able to make 24 8-ounce servings. The Fruit Punch and Peach Green Tea flavors have 40 milligrams of sweet, sweet caffeine per 8-ounce serving.

The problem with Popsicles is that they have no redeeming nutritional qualities. They’re mainly sugar and water. But Popsicle’s new Yosicle line contains 10 percent nonfat yogurt and has 25 percent of your recommended daily allowance for calcium. Oooh, ten percent! Take that, Go-Gurt and your 100 percent nonfat yogurt content. Yosicles come in three varieties: Torpedo!, Layerz!, and Duos!

Kettle Sweet Garlic Chili on shelf

After a bit of Googling, I found out these have been available for a couple of months, but there’s no mention of them on the Kettle Brand website. I kind of regret not picking them up since I’m a fan of spicy Kettle Brand potato chips, but the product below made me completely forget about them while in the chip aisle.

FSTG Hemp on shelf

These Food Should Taste Good Hemp Tortilla Chips aren’t new. They’ve been available for almost a year, but I only just discovered them at Whole Foods. I should really cruise around Whole Foods more often. Oooh, maybe they have hemp ice cream! The tortilla chips are green in color and made with hemp seeds and blue corn. It’s not really surprising to see Food Should Taste Good with hemp tortilla chips. After all, they do have other odd tortilla chip varieties like chocolate.

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 Spotted on Shelves post.

  1. They do have hemmp milk ice cream, it is not that bad but dont expect it to be like real ice cream. They sell it at my whole foods.

    I have tried the kettle sweet chili garlic potato chips and they are very addictive.

  2. Jet Puffed Marshmallows released a new flavor: german chocolate cake.

    Duncan Hines Frosting Creations

    Please do a review on both of these!

  3. Hmm, I’ve had a craving for pizza lately. (Really, I’m taking a full college load and haven’t had pizza once this semester. It’s unnatural, I tell you!) Time to peruse the freezer aisle, because honestly, who has the motivation to order from the Papa John’s across the street?

  4. Why are the popsicles called “Layerz!” with a “z” but “Duos!” with a “s”? Shouldn’t it be “Duoz!”?
