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.
This Stride Fearless Fruit packaging looks like it would be great as a drunken mistake from a tattoo parlor. (Spotted at a candy booth at a food show)
Oh, Gorton’s! Is there any fish you won’t coat with breading, cook, quick freeze, and then sell in a yellow box? (Spotted at Target)
Less sodium and sugar? Those are the things that make peanut butter awesome. I say more sodium and sugar! And, since it’s a “peanut butter spread,” I say more peanuts! (Spotted at Target)
I’ve played with enough buggy computer software to know I should be cautious about anything labeled “beta.” I wonder if it tastes weird or might delete my entire iTunes library. (Spotted at Target)
I’ve seen “clinical strength” antiperspirants and dandruff shampoos, which I hear do great jobs at keeping your armpits dry and your black shirts flake-free, but I did a double take when I saw this Clinical Strength Ensure. Although, I have to admit, I did the double take because of the price for one bottle and not the fact that it’s a clinical strength Ensure. Holy crap! Ten dollars for one bottle! Oh wait, it’s a 4-pack for ten dollars…I need some clinical strength contact lenses. (Spotted at Target)
If you’re out shopping and see a new product on the shelf (or really unusual), snap a picture of it, and send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with where you found it and “Spotted” in the subject line. If you do so, you might see your picture in our next Spotted on Shelves post.
