Here are some new products found on store shelves by us and your fellow readers. We may or may not review them, but we’d like to let you know what new items are popping up. We’ll also occasionally throw in an unusual product.

I’m disappointed these weren’t called Sun Chips Mix. What can I say? I’m a sucker for names that rhyme (I’m also a fan alliteration). I find it a little unusual these Sun Snacks Mix-Ups come in sweet flavors since Sun Chips are mostly savory flavors. Although, they did make a mean Cinnamon Sun Chips a few years ago. Thanks for the photo, Adam!

Ball Park is known for their franks, and now they have a line of frozen products that don’t involve many franks. Frankly, I find that awfully fascinating. (See, I told you I’m a fan of alliteration.) They take minutes to prepare, so if you’re watching a baseball game at home, you’ll have something to do that will help prevent you falling asleep while listening to television baseball announcer banter. Thanks for the photos, Adam!

Twenty-five percent of my daily value of fiber? Is that the best you can do, Kellogg’s? Most Fiber One snack bars provide 35 percent. I need more fiber to help my digestive Tiber. But not too much fiber because if there’s too much, these bars might also be known as Farty Delights.

Thanks to baking reality shows, I know what fondant is. Thanks to Betty Crocker, I can pretend to have my own baking reality show and have fondant problems.

Oh, Guy Fieri. I thought your over bleached spiky hair was the most shocking thing about you. Well, it turns out I was wrong.

If you’re out shopping and see a new product on the shelf (or really unusual), snap a picture of it, email it to us at theimpulsivebuy@gmail.com with “Spotted” in the subject line, and you might see it in our next Spotted on Shelves post.

    S’mores pizza…sounds like GF has had one too many visits to Stevi B’s.

    Oh, noticed a few candies are on sale at my store actually, just didn’t bother to take pictures. Those Milky Way French Vanilla bars apparently got an early release, we got M&M’s Candy Corn and Stride have a new ID gum out.

    That smores indoors pizza is at least a year old. (I served it at a party while I was pregnant and my son is now 9.5 mo old)

    It was horrible. It had a very chemically smell and taste. (Which was not from my oven, I bake dinner & desserts all the time and never have had that smell before or since.)

      Yeah, that’s what Greg from Freezerburns apparently thinks. I asked him about it and he just said he hated it.

    What shocks me the most about spotted on shelves is usually the price tags! I’m assuming those are Hawaiian prices.

    lol Ed. I live in a small ski resort town, we have 1 vons, and these prices look unfortunately normal to me. I feel the poster’s pain :)

    I got some Caramel Apple Milky Way miniatures. They taste weird.
