SPOTTED ON SHELVES (HOLIDAY EDITION) – 11/19/2012

Here are some new and limited edition 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.

Sugar Cookie Pop-Tarts

Limited Edition Printed Fun Sugar Cookie Pop-Tarts are back…as a consolation prize for not finding Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts. (Spotted by Troy at Walmart.)

Betty Crocker Hot Chocolate Brownie Mix

This box of Betty Crocker Hot Chocolate Brownie Mix with Marshmallow Swirls made me super hungry for a molten marshmallow cake. Then I Googled “molten marshmallow cake” and got a bunch of recipes. After reading all the recipes, I decided it was too hard to make molten marshmallow cake. So I did something much easier to end my desire for a molten marshmallow cake. I drank a glass of water and took a nap. (Spotted by Kelly at Walmart.)

Hood Limited Edition Pumpkin Eggnog

Hood Limited Edition Pumpkin Eggnog is “Made with real pumpkin.” Well, it better be. It also better be made with real eggs. Oh, it should also be made with real carrageenan and real guar gum to thicken it. (Spotted by Audrey at Food Lion.)

Jello Pumpkin Spice Pudding

So let me get this straight. Jello has a pumpkin spice pudding, which basically means it’s pumpkin pie flavored. And I can use this pumpkin spice pudding as a pie filling. So if my logic is correct, I can make a pumpkin pie-flavored pie with this pudding. (Spotted by Nicole at ShopRite.)

Butter Sculptures

It looks like someone watched the film Butter one too many times. Although I have to admit this butter sculpture is quite awesome. So much so that I wouldn’t want to ruin it by carving it with a hot knife. (Spotted by Nicole at ShopRite.)

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.

  1. I think you got that pop tart comparison reversed, because Sugar Cookie Poptart is the best flavor ever.

    So glad they’re back!

  2. I have tried Sugar Cookie Eggnog and Pumpkin Eggnog and all I have to say is — WAY. TOO. SWEET! I know some people like sugar with their beverages, but I just feel these 2 varieties are way too sweet. Just stick with regular eggnog. Sweet enough as it is an unfooled around with.

  3. Pumpkin-flavored pudding in a gingersnap crumb crust would probably be a pretty decent pie. Perverse in the eyes of guardians of pumpkin pie authenticity, perhaps… but reasonably pleasant tasting, the way Jell-O’s cheesecake mix doesn’t taste like any self-respecting cheesecake, yet is weirdly addictive.

  4. I just found another batch of the sugar cookie pop tarts at wal mart last week. The box was only 1.72$. I really gotta check the exp. date on those bad boys.
