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.
To celebrate their 30th birthday, Kettle Brand brought back four of their retired flavors for a limited time — Red Chili, Jalapeño Jack, Salsa with Mesquite, and Cheddar Beer. The only flavor I tried before it was retired was Cheddar Beer, and now my taste buds get to relive them again. (Found at the Kingsbury Whole Foods in Chicago. Thanks for the photo, Ben!)
Maybe it’s just me, but doesn’t the Toaster Strudel on the box look like it’s a sacrifice for some ancient demonic religion. The strawberry filling looks like blood and the symbol drawn in chocolate frosting looks not only like a rocket going into space, but also a one-eyed demon with three hairs on its head. Or maybe I’ve seen Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom too many times. (Thanks for the photo, Adam!)
There’s also a Lay’s Stax All-American Cheeseburger. So if happen to get your hands on all three flavors, you can enjoy a complete Hooters meal in potato crisp form. (Thanks for the photo, Adam!)
Whole grain is taking over the whole grocery store. It’s making it easy to get our daily fill of whole grain from junk food. If only junk food companies could figure out a way to sneak vegetables into our food. (Thanks for the photo, Adam!)
Larry the Cable Guy isn’t the only Blue Collar comic with a line of chips. Jeff Foxworthy also has one. But I’m disappointed Bill Engvall’s Dill Pickalls and Ron White Scotch don’t exist. (Found in the Georgetown, Texas area. Thanks for the photo, Brian!)
