Here are some new and limited edition products found on store shelves by us and your fellow readers.

Swedish Fish Candy Canes

There are now Swedish Fish Candy Canes. Or, if you turn them over, hooks to catch Swedish Fish. (Spotted by Britt at RiteAid.)

Gingerbread Peeps

Holy crap! I just realized something. If we stopped celebrating holidays, the holiday-happy makers of Peeps, Just Born, would probably go out of business. I just blew my mind, but not like how a Peep blows up when heated in a microwave oven. (Spotted by Linda at Target.)

Candy Cane Milanos

Mini candy canes make wonderful Christmas tree ornaments. Pepperidge Farm Candy Cane Milano Minis make wonderful Christmas gifts for acquaintances who surprised you with a gift. Acquaintances you don’t really want to reciprocate with, but guilt the inside you builds up to the point where you feel you have to buy them something. Spoil Your Dinner has a review. (Spotted by Linda at Target.)

TimTams at Target

Tim Tams, Australia’s Favorite Cookies, are back again until March or when your local Target runs out of them. (Spotted by Linda at Target.)

M&M's Milk Chocolate Orange

Milk Chocolate Orange M&M’s totally sound like an appropriate candy for this time of year. Fatguy Food Blog has a review.
(Spotted by Kenneth at Walmart.)

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.

    First off – thanks for the love as always, you guys are incredible :) I also reviewed the gingerbread peeps and they are yummy. I have been wanting to try the chocolate orange M&Ms but I just can’t get behind the citrus + chocolate movement.

      I’m probably going to pick up a package anyway (sucker for most things Gingerbread), but do they actually have a spicy/gingerbready taste?

      • Erin says:

        The gingerbread taste is pretty mild, if you are looking for a more intense flavor like with a gingersnap and the like, you will be disappointed with these. I personally liked them, and REALLY like gingerbread, but if you’re looking for something different and gingerbread-y, check out the Stacy’s gingerbread pita chips – those are very yummy.
