SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 1/2/2013

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

Kellogg's Cinnamon Jacks

The Kellogg’s Cinnamon Jacks box may say it’s sweetened with brown sugar and cinnamon, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it just had a brown sugar flavor. Apple Jacks doesn’t taste like apples, so there’s a good chance Cinnamon Jacks won’t taste like cinnamon. (Spotted by Michael at Walmart.)

Breyer's Blasts Birthday Blast

Celebrate your birthday with a birthday cake and ice cream that tastes like birthday cake. On Second Scoop has a Breyer’s Blasts! Birthday Blast review. (Spotted by Adam at Walmart.)

Limited Edition Special K Chocolatey Strawberry

Kellogg’s Special K Chocolatey Strawberry is a limited edition cereal. But once it disappears you can get your Special K Chocolatey Strawberry fix by combining Special K Red Berries and Special K Chocolatey Delight cereals. (Spotted by Jarred at QFC.)

New Cereals

It’s raining new General Mills cereals! Actually, it’s raining new and possibly reformulated General Mills cereals! Honey Nut Cheerios Medley Crunch and Fiber One Chocolate are new, but General Mills introduced a Peanut Butter Toast Crunch in 2004. (Spotted by Heidi at Walmart.)

Skittles Darkside

Taste the upside down rainbow of Skittles Darkside which is made up of Midnight Lime, Forbidden Fruit, Pomegranate, Blood Orange, and Dark Berry. (Spotted by Kevin at Walgreens.)

    1. I’m surprised they don’t expand the Skittles universe. There are so many fruits out there, but they don’t do anything with most of them, like I would love to taste a lychee Skittles.

  1. Just tried the new Cherrios and the new Fiber One. I wrote about the Cherrios on my site. They are the bastard offspring of a box of Honey Bunches of Oats and Honey Nut Cherrios. They were ok…but nothing too special.

    I am looking forward to trying out the new French Toast Cereal.
