SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 10/8/2012

It’s another holiday themed Spotted on Shelves this week. Here are some pumpkin-y (new and old) products found on store shelves. We may or may not review them, but we’d like to let you know what items are popping up.

Betty Crocker Pumpkin Spice Cookie Mix

The more pumpkin spice product photos we post this year means less pumpkin spice product photos we’ll post next year. And I think we’ve featured a lot of them. Just kidding. I really believe we’ve only covered a fraction of the pumpkin spice products available. There are probably over a dozen pumpkin spice cookies alone. (Tualumba for the photo, Kenneth!)

Pumpkin Spice Eggnog

Hey! Do you know what would be awesome to dunk those pumpkin spice cookies into? Yup, some old fashioned pumpkin spice egg nog. (Mauruuru for the photo, Andrew!)

Hostess GloBalls

Hostess ScaryCakes

Those ScaryCakes don’t look so scary. Oh wait, I haven’t read the nutrition facts yet. (Dhanyavadalu for the pics, Mike!)

Tastykake Jack-o-Lantern Juniors

Great for Trick or Treating? More like a great way for kids to know which candy-less house to avoid next year. (Merci for the picture, Mike!)

SpookyLicious Pop-Tarts

I think Kellogg’s should retire their Spookylicious Frosted Chocolate Fudge Pop-Tarts and replace it with Eerielicious Frosted Chocolate Fudge Pop-Tarts. (Tashakor for the photo, Mike!)

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.

  1. I NEED those Betty Crocker Pumpkin Spice cookies, they look goooood.

    The Hostess stuff is just crazy, it doesn’t even look like real food. Do they even taste nice?

    I’m curious what happens in the US when October is over. Does all the Pumpkin Spice stuff just get replaced with Gingerbread Spice stuff?

    1. Pumpkin works well into November, due to the US Thanksgiving. Besides turkey, I think the major symbol of the US Thanksgiving dining table is pumpkin pie. (Or maybe that green bean casserole with the crunchy onions.)

      However, gingerbread stuff will probably start appearing by mid-November, if not earlier. I’m personally impatiently waiting for the Starbucks gingerbread latte.

      1. Gingerbread stuff has already been put on shelves. There’s ginger coffee mix by Dunkin and some prepackaged gingerbread men already available at my store.
