SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 12/3/2012

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

Extra Dessert Delight Lemon Square

The list of Extra Dessert Delights gum has just gotten longer. There’s root beer float, apple pie, strawberry shortcake, mint chocolate chip ice cream, key lime pie, rainbow sherbet, orange creme popsicle, and now lemon squares. I wonder what they’ll come up with next. I hope it’s brownies or baklava. (Spotted by Cortney at Shoppers Food Warehouse.)

Frozen Greek Yogurt

Speaking of baklava, this baklava Greek frozen yogurt would’ve never happened in 1800s because of the strife between Greece and the Ottoman Empire and because frozen yogurt hadn’t been invented yet. (Spotted by Melissa at Giant Food Stores.)

Jolly Rancher Gelatin Mix

Hey, college kids or 40-somethings who want to relive their youth, Jolly Rancher has watermelon and green apple gelatin for you to make Jolly Rancher Jello shots with. Although, Jolly Rancher would probably want you to call them Jolly Rancher gelatin shots because their gelatin is not under the Jello brand. But that probably won’t happen because Jello has pretty much replaced gelatin in our vernacular, much like Kleenex has replaced facial tissues. (Spotted by Nadirah at Walmart.)

Blue Bell Rum Raisin

“Welcome to the rum raisin ice cream party, Blue Bell,” said Häagen-Dazs with sarcasm. (Spotted by Kenneth at Target.)

  1. The lemon squares flavor of the Extra Gum was one of the flavor that America have to choose between Root Beer and the Top Chef flavor dessert. Remember that? Interestly Extra decided to go ahead make the lemon squares even it lost to root beer.

  2. I’m embarrassed to admit I let out audible profanity upon seeing the lemon squares gum. I need to buy that and I need to buy it immediately.
