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.

Starbucks Discoveries Iced Cafe Favorites

Ever since International Delight introduced their iced coffee in cartons, I’ve been waiting for Starbucks to show up with their own. Maybe to make it feel like I visited a Starbucks, I’ll misspell my own name on the carton. (Spotted by Cortney at Bakers.)

Godiva Dessert Truffles

Godiva Chocolatier Dessert Truffles. I believe that was the most hoity-toity group of words I’ve ever typed. (Spotted by Blaire at Target.)

Bear Naked Morning Power Packs

If you call them Morning Power Packs, I’m going to be a rebel and eat them only during the hours of noon and 11:59 PM. (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

Marie Callender's Easy Side

Four minutes! These Marie Callender’s Easy Sides may be easy, but they sure aren’t made for the super impatient, like me. (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

Kellogg's Limited Edition Monsters University Cereal

Did we really need a Monster University cereal? Also, did we really need a Monsters Inc. prequel? (Spotted by Charmi at Foodland.)

  1. If the little packs have the same stuff as Bear Naked Fruit & Nut granola – they will be really really good and worth a try. I tried their Protein granola once and the only way I got through the bag was mixing it with Fruit&Nut granola….

  2. Monsters University cereal is going to be like Urkle O’s in 20 years. I can see the buzzfeed equivalivent article now.

    1. i tried one of the MC sides, too, and was surprised that they weren’t very good. Edible, but not what I expect from Marie Callender and not worth buying again. I still remember one frozen meal they had long ago – macaroni and cheese with lots of broccoli. It was really really good. Good broccoli in a frozen food dish is a sure sign of high quality, that seems to be hard to get right and usually they’re barely edible. They were big pieces, too, taking up a large section of the plate as a separate item, not a few green bits scattered somewhere to give the illusion of healthy food. The mac&cheese was very good also, but the quality of the broccoli imprinted the whole experience on my brain lo these many years. The only other frozen broccoli that impressed me so much was in some Amy’s Kitchen thing (my personal gold standard).

  3. The Marie Callender’s sides horrible. I did give them the benefit of the doubt and tried a few different ones. All of them are mushy and taste gross.

  4. I found the alfred is not bad if you doctor it with some cheese and meat. Also, cooking it on the stove helps the mush problem.
