SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 3/6/2013

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

Limited Editions Skinny Cow Cupcake Batter Ice Cream

So does having cake-flavored ice cream with cake on the same plate mean I can have my cake and eat it too? (Spotted by Adam at Weis Markets.)

Skinny Cow Cookie 'n Dough

Is it just me or do other people have nightmares that involve being chased by the Skinny Cow mascot who is carrying liposuction equipment and screaming, “I’ll show moo how I got skinny!”? (Spotted by Adam at Weis Markets.)

Skinny Cow Salted Caramel Pretzel

No, seriously. That Skinny Cow mascot freaks me out. Whenever I buy a Skinny Cow product, I get a White Out pen or a thick Sharpie and color over it. (Spotted by Adam at Weis Markets.)

Limited Editions Skinny Cow Pretty in Pink Velvet Truffle

The drizzled cream cheese-flavored frosting looks like strings used to tighten a corset. It’s as if it’s saying,”Eat me to get skinny or wear a corset to look skinny!” Or maybe I’m thinking they look like corset strings because I like to act out scenes from my Fifty Shades of Grey fan fiction. (Spotted by Adam at Weis Markets.)

  1. I’m glad someone else has brought up how awful the mascot is. A cow posing provocatively is creepy not sassy or whatever they’re aiming for.

  2. I saw the pink velvet one at safeway the other day. Decided to pass cuz I didnt know if it tasted good or not. Please review it! =P

  3. I got kid-in-a-candy-store excited when I saw that Cupcake Batter cup in the freezer. Purchased, sampled, discarded after two bites and a thorough escavatory conquest. The flavor of the actual icecream was palatable, but the textureless and virtually absent sprinkles paired with the miniscule, hot yellow cake bits provided nothing more than a rough draft of what the term paper could’ve been. I suggest opting for the Breyer’s Birthday Cake Blast if you’re craving a funfetti inspired mash up dessert product.

  4. Both of the new ice cream bars are DELICIOUS. I’m in love. Remind me of an ice cream snickers bar but for way less calories!
