SPOTTED ON SHELVES (INTERNATIONAL EDITION) – 12/7/2012

Here are some interesting new and limited edition products found on store shelves in other countries by your fellow readers.

Mike Tyson Black Power Energy Drink

When I first heard about Mike Tyson’s facial tattoo, I wondered what purpose will it serve. Well, it appears there is a purpose. This can of Mike Tyson Black Power Energy Drink from Poland would’ve been significantly less badass if Iron Mike’s face didn’t have a tattoo. (Spotted by Lucy at Asda in the United Kingdom.)

Eggo Cinnamon Toast Minis

Cinnamon toast-flavoured waffles? Where’s the pain au chocolat-flavoured Eggo waffles in Canada? (Spotted by Darren at Calgary Coop in Canada.)

Special K Cracker Chips (Canada)

Since these are new to our neighbors up north, I should let them know, through personal experience, that eating an entire box does not equal to eating a bowl of Special K. Although in both cases you’ll still feel hungry after. (Spotted by Darren at Calgary Coop in Canada.)

Bugles New? (Canada)

Canadians haven’t experienced the greatness that is Bugles until now? All this time they haven’t been able to stick a Bugle on each fingertip, pretend to be a monster with sharp claws, and then chomp them off. They’ve been so deprived. (Spotted by Darren at Calgary Coop in Canada.)

Blueberry Ice Cream Oreo

These Blueberry Ice Cream Oreo Cookies aren’t new. They’ve been around for a few years, but it’s really interesting to see what flavors I will be searching for on eBay. (Spotted by a friend of TIB reader Lane in Taiwan.)

If you’re out shopping and see an interesting 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.

  1. Wait…Blueberry Ice Cream Oreos were in the US the past few years, or is it too early for me to realize they’ve only been internationally available?

  2. Canada has had bugles in the past, but for some reason they were taken away and I could no longer pretend that I was an evil witch with horrible nails.

  3. Interesting that the Taiwan Oreos are branded Kraft rather than Nabisco. As Oreos ended up on the Monzelez side they no longer have an association with Kraft so they might rebrand there (i.e. Cadbury Oreos in India and Christie Oreos in Canada).

  4. Those blueberry ice cream Oreos are simply AWFUL. Aside from the branding thing, I’ve also noticed that the creme to cookie ratio is always waaay off in favor of the cookie, and that tastes more like cardboard than its Nabisco counterpart. Kinda pointless when all the flavor in the “special edition” cookies lies in the creme.

    …and this is my life.
