SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 2/27/2013

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

Starbucks VIA Refreshers

Decisions. Decisions. Do I buy these Starbucks VIA Refreshers and make them at home? Or do I go my local Starbucks and have that cute barista make a Starbucks Refreshers for me while I admire her beauty with a creepy stare? (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

Tropicana Farmstand

Yeah! Get one serving of vegetables and one serving of fruit with a cup of Tropicana Farmstand, but then feel inferior when your co-worker comes in with their kale-infused fruit smoothie made with a $500 Vitamix blender. (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

Pillsbury Orangesicle & Key Lime Cookie Mix

Does the Pillsbury Doughboy do any baking? I believe he does. But if he does bake, and he pulls stuff in and out of an oven, shouldn’t his hands be a golden brown. Unless the Pillsbury Doughboy died a long time ago, after being completely baked, and what we see is his ghost. And when people poke his belly, it’s actually him sucking in his gut and giggling. He has to fake it because if he doesn’t the finger will go right through him and freak everyone out. (Spotted by Linda at Walmart.)

Reese's Eggs Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cup

I would highly suggest not hiding these eggs around your lawn during Easter. Well, unless you “hide” them in the middle of your lawn, where the Easter egg hunters will find them before they completely melt. (Spotted by Steven at Walmart.)

    Those new products looks so tasty. Key Lime cookies sounds really good! Tropicana farmstand I gotta give a shot it might be like V8 fusion.

    Marvo, maybe can do a comparision to see which one is better V8 fusion or Tropicana Farmstand.

    That would be fun right?

    I think the Doughboy must do some baking, because he’s wearing the hat!

    Berry Hibiscus is my fav Fivebucks drink and i’d kill to make it at home for a much lower price. BUT idk if it would taste as good as the store version.

  5. Eric says:

    I tried both of the Starbucks refresshers and I’m sorry but both of them left an odd “Sesame” aftertaste to me. I ended up giving them to my roommate and coworker.
