SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 1/30/2013

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

Chex Mix Muddy Buddies Snickerdoodle

Why would someone want a snack that tastes like snickerdoodles? If one wants a snack that tastes like the cookie, wouldn’t real snickerdoodle cookies be that snack? (Spotted by Stephanie at Sheetz.)

Planters New Peanuts

There are two new Planters dry roasted peanut flavors. Thank goodness. If I had to eat one more honey roasted or Five Alarm Chili peanut, I was gonna choke a legume. (Spotted by @jgotelli at Target.)

Campbell's Fancy 100% Natural Soups

“New and Delicious”? With flavors like Butternut Squash Bisque and Creamy Gouda Bisque, shouldn’t it say, “New, Delicious, Fancy Nancy, and Makes Our Condensed Soup Look Less Appetizing”? (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

Quaker BIG Chewy Granola Bar

I wanted to put a risqué paragraph here. Actually, I did type one and it was super filthy…and lengthy. 50 Shades of Grey-lenghty, but with even poorer writing. (Spotted by Charmi at Target.)

Thank you to all the photo contributors!

    Awww come on I want to read the risqué paragraph now. I’m try to imagine what it could be about the Big Chewy bars that was filthy…

    Anyway, I hope the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip bars make their way to the UK, they look good!

    The roasted onion/garlic peanuts sounds a little bit nasty it will give u bad breath if u snacked on those. They should had packed a “FREE PACK OF MINTS!” along with the peanuts.

  3. Elise says:

    The creamy gouda bisque soup sounds good, but like most canned soups, I bet it would be a let down. Also I feel like Campbell’s has a gouda soup of some sort in their fancy “GO!” soup bag product line? At any rate, I’d also assume it’s chock full of fat. No good.

    I had the creamy Gouda bisque a couple of months ago. It is pretty tasty.

    I tried the chocolate Muddy Buddies when they hit the half price table and they were entirely too good. So good that I went back asap to grab the remaining ones, even though I’m not a chocoholic. So I would certainly try the Snickerdoodles type, please have a Snickerdoodles fan review. Excuse me while I search the web for coupons….
