SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 6/5/2013

Here are some interesting new and limited edition products found on store shelves by us and your fellow readers. If you’ve tried any of the products, share your thoughts about them in the comments.

Sweet Baby Ray's Cola-Q Barbecue Sauce

A barbecue sauce infused with cola flavor? That sounds awesome! I hope mountaineers slather them on ribs, shout “Rib-co-la!”, and then blow through a large Alphorn. (Spotted by Billy at Giant.)

Goldfish Puffs

Yay! Puffed fish that doesn’t contain the lethal poison called tetrodotoxin. (Spotted by Andy at Target.)

Annie's Homegrown Rising Crust Four Cheese Pizza

Annie’s Homegrown now makes full-size pizzas. Oh, they also make mac & cheese. I hope they follow Tony’s and make a mac & cheese-topped pizza. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

Ben & Jerry's Nutty Caramel Swirl

7-Eleven has an exclusive Ben & Jerry’s flavor called Nutty Caramel Swirl that has nougat ice cream with peanuts, fudge flakes, and a salty caramel swirl. Looks like the Snickers in the candy aisle at 7-Eleven have a good reason to snicker. Here’s On Second Scoop’s review. (Spotted by Marvo at 7-Eleven.)

    1. Ha, I bought that Cola-Q sauce a little while ago but haven’t tried it out yet.

      Even if the Sweet Baby Ray’s version turns out to be terrible, the general idea’s not as crazy as it might sound. Cheerwine-based BBQ sauces are all over the place here in the Carolinas. I’ve seen recipes for Coke/Pepsi/Dr Pepper-based sauces, and Dr Pepper even put out their own official, prepackaged sauce a while back, but I’ve only ever tried the Cheerwine variety.

  1. Marvo, you gave me a good laugh with the cola-q barbecue sauce. That line with the rib-co-la sounded like a bad pun for Ricola. But still, it gave me a good laugh.
