SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 10/29/2012

Here are some new (and some returning) holiday 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.

Jet-Puffed GhostMallows

WOOOOOO! We’re just colorful ghost-shaped marshmallows, so we’re not at all scary. Although we’re made from sugar and gelatin so we’re scary to dentists and vegans. WOOOOOO! (Spotted at Target. Spotted by Marvo.)

Limited Edition Lucerne Holiday Dairy Beverage

Mmm…store brand holiday dairy beverage However, I’ll probably call them Lucerne Red Velvet Nog and Chocolate Truffle Nog, because my tongue is lazy and it thinks “nog” is an extremely fun word to say. Nog. Nog. Nog. Nog. Nog. Nog. Nog. Nog. Nog. Nog. Nog. (Spotted at Safeway. Spotted by Marvo.)

Coffee-Mate Peppermint Mocha

To get chocolate and peppermint flavor into your coffee you could drop mini Hershey’s bars leftover from Halloween into your coffee and then use a candy cane to stir it. Or I guess you could be lazy and use this Coffee-mate Peppermint Mocha creamer. (Spotted at Target. Spotted by Marvo.)

Seasonal Jello

It’s a wall of randomly stacked Gingerbread and Candy Cane Jello Instant Pudding boxes that I would like to knock down by sliding myself on a freshly waxed floor. (Spotted at Giant. Spotted by Solstice.)

Candy Cane Oreo

Limited Edition Candy Cane Oreo cookies back! And I hope they’re much easier to find than Limited Edition Candy Corn Oreo cookies, which I’ve never seen at my local Target. We reviewed these cookies two years ago. (Spotted at Target. Spotted by Justine.)

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 (theimpulsivebuy@gmail.com) 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.

  1. I tried the Lucerne “Chocolate Truffle Holiday Dairy Beverage” last year [2012 / 2013 Christmas season]. I was shocked! I thought that the “Chocolate Truffle” name had to be a bit of wretched excess, and it would just not be possible to create something that would be remotely close to representing that description. Ok, I was wrong.

    This stuff is really great, but [obviously] only if you have a really sweet tooth type of taste. It is thick & rich far beyond my expectations. It is literally the closest thing I can imagine to actually drinking a dark chocolate truffle [and I love dark chocolate truffles].

    Biggest problem: I could not find any this year. If anyone has a lead, let me know. I suspect that now that the season is “officially” over, if there was any to be had, it has all been pulled from the stores.

    I am now curious if Lucerne does still make this stuff or not. If not, I encourage them to continue to produce this item, or to re-create if necessary, even if only for the Holidays. If you have not sampled this delight and have any interest, then I recommend making inquiries to Lucerne on their website, or even to your local store, especially perhaps to the specialty type outlets. Have a great year!
