SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 2/20/2013

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

M&M White Chocolate Carrot Cake

Instead of bringing carrot cake to an office party and explaining to co-workers that they won’t be able to taste the carrots, you can bring these White Chocolate Carrot Cake M&M’s and explain to co-workers they won’t be able to taste the carrots. (Spotted by Troy at Walmart.)

Post Sesame Street C is for Cereal

If A is for Apple and B is for Banana, I look forward to trying the future 25 Post Sesame Street C is for Cereal flavors. C could be cantaloupe. D could be…um. Dammit! Where’s Sue Grafton when I need her? (Spotted by Michael at Walmart.)

Farmer's Garden by Vlasic

When I look at these pickles, it takes me back to a time when things were simpler and I enjoyed tuna and pickle sandwiches. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

Emerald Breakfast on the go Fun Packs

If I ever buy these Emerald Breakfast on the Go! Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Fun Packs, I’m not going to eat them for breakfast. I’m going to eat them as a mid-afternoon snack because NO PACKAGING is going to tell me when I’m going to eat it. (Spotted by Adam at Weis Markets.)

Pillsbury Limited Edition Red Velvet Cookies

These Limited Edition Red Velvet Cookies don’t make me want to poke the Pillsbury Doughboy in the belly to make him giggle. Instead, they make me want to squeeze him with my arms like I’m kneading him with hugs. (Spotted by Ryan at Walmart.)

  1. Carrot cake M&Ms?! I don’t like the idea of artifical flavoring like the coconut. Why couldn’t they add dried shredded carrots to give it real flavor same idea with the coconut.

  2. I don’t like the idea of artificial flavourings either, and hated the coconut M&M’s. However these are the kind of snacks I just *have* to seek out and do a review of, even though I know they will taste awful.

  3. How funny, I recently made some red velvet cookies for my coworkers for Valentines Day. Those carrot cake M&M’s have my attention.

  4. MUST have those carrot cake M&Ms. I love the coconut ones, likes the candy corn ones despite not liking candy corn… gotta get me some.

    The Vlasic farmer’s garden pickles are definitely top of the line of major and store brand shelf-stable pickles. The add-ins of carrots and peppers are good too. Personally, no (non-gourmet, store bought) dill pickle will get pas Claussen in my book, but these are good.

  5. I am so disappointed that the carrot cake ones are only in certain stores. The stores they are in are not close to me. Need to put them in every store, not just certain ones.
