SPOTTED ON SHELVES (CANADIAN EDITION) – 11/26/2012

Here are some new, limited edition, or unusual products found on Canadian store shelves. You’re welcome, Canada!

Wheat Thins Sweet Potato

Not only do Canadian get to have new Sweet Potato Wheat Thins, they also get to munch on new Spinach and Roasted Garlic Wheat Thins. I’m a little jealous Canada gets those two flavours, but I’m sure our friends closer to Santa are envious of American Wheat Thins flavors, like Spicy Buffalo and Zesty Salsa.

Wheat Thins Stix Pizza

Awesome! Now Canadians can be as confused as I am about the purpose of Wheat Thins Stix. Seriously, I don’t get Wheat Thins sticks. Wait. Are Wheat Thins Stix still being sold here in the US? I don’t think I’ve seen them on the shelves recently. (Spotted by Darren at Calgary Coop.)

Mr Christie's FruitKrisps

It appears these Fruit Krisps help teach children the letters of the alphabet. Too bad the front of the box doesn’t teach them how to spell words properly. (Spotted by Darren at Calgary Coop.)

BelVita Banana Oatmeal & Chocolate

Breakfast cookies aren’t new, but belVita has made them popular. Canada has a soft baked version and the UK has a yoghurt-filled variety. Here in the US, we’re stuck with the original crunchy versions of belVita. (Spotted by Darren at Safeway.)

Three Olives S'mores Vodka

Three Olives S’mores Vodka is also available in the US, you lush. Oh, but s’mores isn’t the only unusual flavor Three Olives produces. There’s also root beer, cola, cake, and a flavor called Dude. (Spotted by Eric at LCBO.)

Hey, international TIB readers! We’d really like to do Spotted on Shelves posts with products from other countries, so if you see a new product on the shelf while you’re out shopping, 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 international Spotted on Shelves post.

    the dude flavor of three olives tastes like mountain dew…they also have a bubble gum flavor which is pretty good with rockstar

    I can’t get past how much belVita sounds like Velveeta. Who names these things!?

    My kids love the Wheat Thins Stix and I was wondering where I can buy them where I live. I live in Brampton, Ontario and I was hoping someone could help me out.

    Thanks
