SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 11/2/2012

Topics: Spotted on Shelves

Here are some new and limited edition 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.

Limited Edition Football Oreo

Do you play paper football? Well, you should try playing Football Oreo Football since they’re back again for a limited time. Instead of flicking a folded piece of paper around, you flick these football-shaped cookies. If you kick a field goal, you get a point. But if you kick a field goal and your opponent catches it in their mouth, they get a point. But if that happens and you’re one of those people who doesn’t like to wash their hands after using the restroom, you both lose. (Spotted at Super Stop & Shop. Spotted by Jaitlyn.)

Hungry Jack Easy Pack Pancakes

To make these Hungry Jack Easy Pack Pancakes, all I need to do is just add water. Ugh. Adding water is so hard. And I probably have to stir the water and pancake mix. Ugh. Stirring is so hard. Then I have to wait for them to cook on a griddle. Ugh. Waiting is so hard. (Spotted at Target. Spotted by Robert.)

Arizona Lime Rickey

I would like to point out that the guy who designed this can is from this rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Yeah, rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean represent! Yay! Yay! Here’s a Thirsty Dudes review of the drink. Spotted at 7-Eleven. Spotted by Lydia.)

Tyson Stuffed Mini Bread Bowls

I wonder how many Tyson Stuffed Mini Bread Bowls I can stuff into my mouth at one time. Freezer Burns has a review of the Chicken Bacon Club variety. (Spotted at Safeway. Spotted by Richard.)

Limited Edition Ocean Spray Craisins

I like Craisins. I like chocolate covered stuff. And the two together must be pretty awesome. So I’m a bit disappointing these chocolate covered Craisins are only a limited edition. That’s craisin-zy! I’m sorry. I couldn’t help it. (Spotted at Tom Thumb. Spotted by Justine.)

If you’re out shopping and see a new or limited edition 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.

    Football-shaped Oreo cookies have actually been around for quite sometime. They may be seasonal, but they’ve been around.

    You even make roundups amusing. Your comments about the pancake mixes are hilarious. Kinda surprised the chocolate-covered craisins are limited edition, maybe they’re just testing it out.

    I just envision using the football Oreo’s during a game of paper football and cracking myself or the opponent right in the teeth – cringe worthy.

    I’ve also sampled the Arizona drink, and despite the appealing can art, this drink was hardly drinkable.

    I also imagined you adding water to the pancake mixture, popping it straight into the microwave and eating it out of the bag. I have a vivid imagination, and it makes me think of gross things. I am ashamed

    Funfetti pancakes?!? Now that’s just going too far!
