SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 8/12/2013

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.

Pepperidge Farm Chocolate Chunk Cookie Cake

There’s a Milano cake and this Chocolate Chunk cake by Pepperidge Farm. I hope the next Pepperidge Farm cake is made with cheesy Goldfish. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

T.G.I. Friday's Limited Edition Honey Mustard Chicken Wings

Yawn. I mean, yum! No. I can’t lie. Yawn. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

Hidden Valley Pasta Salad

I think Hidden Valley should change their name to Hidden Vegetables because when I was young I’d use their dressing to drown my vegetables to make them not look like vegetables. (Spotted by Charmi at Walmart.)

Swanson Mexican Tortilla Flavor Infused Broth

Swanson Thai Ginger Flavor Infused Broth

Swanson Chinese Hot & Sour Flavor Infused Broth

I wonder how long a Mexican tortilla had to simmer in a pot in order to make this broth. (Spotted by Lindsay at Meijer.)

Kemp's Mini-sota Donut Ice Cream

Since 2011, Kemps Ice Cream has held an annual competition that gives Upper Midwesterners the chance to have their own ice cream flavor made. This is the 2012 winner. So in order to increase my chances of getting my very own ice cream flavor I have to either move to the Upper Midwest and try to win this competition or become a late night talk show host that Ben and Jerry enjoy watching.

  1. The cakes have been out for months… If you have to try one try the one with the chocolate chunk crumbled cookies. The other one is just yellow cake, frosting, and the milano cookies on top.

  2. Just tried the Swanson Chinese Hot and Sour Flavor Infused Broth. It was weirdly spicy (like the wrong kind of spice?) and one-dimensional. I had to add beef base and a little rice vinegar to make it palatable. It looked and smelled heavenly, however!
