SPOTTED ON SHELVES (HOLIDAY EDITION) – 12/10/2012

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

Rice Dream Rice Nog

Rice Nog! Thank you, Rice Dream! You truly are a dream because I can enjoy another non-dairy nog that’s not even close to tasting as good as egg nog. Now all I need is for a particular almond milk producing company to develop almond nog. Get. On. It. Almond Breeze! (Spotted by Audrey at Whole Foods.)

Limited Edition Frosting Creations

With these limited edition Duncan Hines Frosting Creations, I can make baked goods taste like other baked goods. So that means instead of doing the mixing and baking needed to make gingerbread cookies, I can now mix and bake a gingerbread cookie cake. That makes sense. (Spotted by Richard at Walmart.)

Ginger Snappish

Oh, Bigelow and their fun seasonal tea names, like Eggnogg’n and Ginger Snappish. When Bigelow expands their seasonal tea offerings, I hope they take a page out of the Duncan Hines playbook and make a hot beverage that tastes like another hot beverage. Perhaps a tea that tastes like hot chocolate called Hot Oh’cocoa. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

Peppermint Mocha Kahlua

Goodbye, peppermint schnapps! Hello, Limited Edition Peppermint Mocha Kahlúa to make my cheeks rosy and my Yuletide bright. (Spotted by Lauren at Safeway.)

Gingerbread Kahlua

If you ever build a gingerbread house with a pool or moat, you can fill it with Gingerbread Kahlúa. Or you can drink lots of Gingerbread Kahlúa while putting together a gingerbread house and end up with a pile of broken gingerbread house pieces. (Spotted by Linda at Nob Hill Foods.)

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. If you do so, you might see your picture in our next Spotted on Shelves post.

    The Peppermint Mocha Kahlua is so delicious, I made truffles with this and also spike my hot chocolate with it. I have not tried the gingerbread one though, saw this at target the other day.

  2. Grocery Gems says:

    The Rice Nog is brilliant! Vegans of the world are rejoicing :)

  3. Me says:

    Actually this stuff is pretty dang good (helps to add rum, but that’s true of any nog):

    Almond nog might actually be delicious, like egg nog with amaretto instead of rum. I hope the almond milk makers of the world listen to you, because that is brilliant, and I want to read reviews of it and imagine. (I would not actually be able to try it, due to an almond allergy, but I can live vicariously through internet blogs where the nuts are concerned…)

  5. Andrea says:

    Rice nog is so hard to find!

  6. Andrea says:

    I like to put a shot of rice nog in my cereal:) I just wish they sold it in more places.

  7. Actually Bigelow has already created a delicious chocolate tea, called White Chocolate Kisses – It’s FREAKING BOMB!!!!! And the Gingersnapish tea actually has been on the market for quite some time. I am sort of a tea connoisseur, lol!
