SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 11/15/2013

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.

Sun-Maid Orange Cream Yogurt Raisins

If you want your dried grapes to taste like oranges, the Sun-Maid Orange Cream Yogurt Raisins might be for you. (Spotted by Charmi at Safeway.)

Marcela Valladolid Fiery Habanero Flaquitos

I have no idea who Marcela Valladolid is, but she must be famous enough to have her own line of products at Safeway. I hope someday The Impulsive Buy becomes famous enough that it has its own line of products, which will most likely be horrible for you. (Spotted by Charmi at Safeway.)

V8 V-Fusion Refreshers Tangerine Passionfruit

V8 V-Fusion Refreshers Cranberry Grape

First, there was V8; then there was V8 V-Fusion; and now there’s V8 V-Fusion Refreshers. If adding a word is all it takes to create a new V8 product, then I look forward to V8 V-Fusion Refreshers Sparkling or V8 V-Fusion Refreshers Xtreme. (Spotted by Kelcey at Fresh Grocer.)

Rold Gold Peanut Butter Dipped Pretzels

At first glance I thought these Rold Gold Peanut Butter Dipped Pretzels looked good, but then I got to “Artificially Flavored Tiny Twists” and thought maybe not. They should’ve printed the “Artificially Flavored Tiny Twists” in a smaller font…and on the back of the bag. (Spotted by Marc at Walgreens.)

Tostitos and Doritos Top n' Go

If you’ve ever wanted to eat nachos like you’re a horse with a feed bag on your face, this product found next to the nacho toppings at a truck rest stop might help make that dream a reality. (Spotted by Travis at Pilot.)

Limited Edition Kellogg's Honey Loops with Roasted Nuts (Canada)

Wait a minute. Canada hasn’t had Crunchy Nut cereal all this time? (Spotted by Rory at Food Basics in Canada.)
