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

Crystal Light Liquid

MiO’s sister brand, Crystal Light, has come out with her own line of liquid water enhancers, which include the following flavors: Blueberry Raspberry, Iced Tea, Mango Passionfruit, Strawberry Lemonade, Peach Bellini, and Pomtini. Now I guess we wait for MiO’s brother brand, Kool Aid, to bust through with his own line of liquid water enhancers. Oh yeah! (Spotted by Zachary at Walmart.)

Pringles Limited Time Only Cheeseburger

Pringles Limited Time Only Sea Salt & Pepper

I’m extremely disappointed the graphic designer who designed the Sea Salt & Pepper container didn’t put a little grey or white in the Pringles guy’s mustache. Junk Food Guy has a review of the Sea Salt & Pepper crisps. And Chip Review has a review of the Cheeseburger Pringles. (Spotted by Lael at Walmart.)

Keebler Chips Deluxe Triple Chocolate

I have yet to see a store-bought chocolate product break the through the triple chocolate level. Chocolate cookie, chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips got the cookies to the triple level, but I’m sure the Keebler elves could’ve easily dipped them in chocolate and then topped them with chocolate sprinkles. BOOM! Chips Deluxe Quintuple Chocolate Cookies! Damn, I should be a Keebler elf! (Spotted by Adam at Weis.)

Oscar Mayer Carving Board Pulled Pork

I could spend hours making my own pulled pork. Or I could spend seconds opening a container of Oscar Mayer’s Carving Board Pulled Pork. Or I could spend minutes in my car driving to a decent barbecue place. (Spotted by Adam at Walmart.)

NatureMade Adult Gummies

Still waiting for adult prescription medication gummies, Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, and Bristol-Meyers Squibb. (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

    It seems that virtually every drink mix brand are jumping in the MIO area. I have seen in Target they got Market Pantry drink enchancers.

    The fish oil gummies I tried it and it is okay bit of fish flavor in there with hints of fruity notes coming behind it.

    The Oscar Mayer Pulled Pork I hope it tastes like the real stuff and just pour BBQ sauce and lie to everybody that you went all that trouble making the pulled pork sandwiches like Sandra Lee said “I use 70% store bought stuff and 30% fresh” this “pulled pork” Oscar Mayer sandwiches is 100% store bought: 1) open container dump in pan 2) pour BBQ sauce and warm it up 3) get store bought buns plop the meat mixture.

    It’s amazing how many times Pringles trot out their Cheeseburger flavor, it’s a Limited Time Only flavor for like 6 months every year.

    Thanks for the shout!!

    @Peter – you are absolutely correct…the gig is up!!

    Just snagged Kool-Aid Liquid mix on the Wal-Mart shelf yesterday… Only saw the typical three flavors (grape, cherry, punch)… Both the Kool-Aid and Crystal Light varieties differ from the MiO ones in that they’re meant to be the actual flavor (a la the packets), whereas MiO is meant to add to the flavor… Overall, decent stuff!
