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

Archer Farms Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips

At a quick glance you may think these are sweet potato chips, but they’re not. They are sweet potato-flavored tortilla chips. I wish they were sweet potato chips. (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

I’m pretty sure it takes more than a coffee called Cupid’s Blend to win someone’s heart. It probably involves cooking the rest of the breakfast to go along with the coffee. (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

Thanks, Target. Thanks for making your snack bar aisle more of a clusterfluff. But seriously, these look kind of good. (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

Doesn’t pasta do enough for us? They give us carbs, make Italian restaurant menus much more fun to read, and if I have more than ten in my pantry, they make me look like a foodie. Do we have to make them provide us with calcium, vitamin D, and fiber? (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

    Not the first time a Market Pantry item has been slightly misleading… I was disappointed when I bought their “Double Twist” string cheese (http://target.scene7.com/is/image/Target/13162825?wid=300&hei=300). I thought it would be the same as its more-expensive cheese section neighbors, with two kinds of cheese twisted together. Nope, just mozzarella… and orange coloring. Gross.

    I can’t believe you had the Archer Farms chips on here. I was at Target and bought a bag of the Sweet Thai Chili ones and thought they were unique and was going to e-mail a heads up. Glad to see you’re on top of it!

    I wonder how “banana fudge” works…
