Brach's Carrot Cake Candy Corn

Carrot cake candy corn? I’d like to add another C-word to show how I feel about all these flavored candy corn…craaaaaaaaap. (Spotted by Bree at Harris Teeter.)

Cheetos Flamin' Hot and Dortios Dinamita Chile Limon

Cheetos Flamin’ Hot AND Doritos Dinamita Chile Limon. That bag should really come with a peel off coupon for a half gallon of whole milk. (Spotted by James at Walmart.)

Method Summer Collection 2014

Isn’t the first day of summer, like, three months away? (Spotted by Sylvia at Target.)

Coke Sixer

Back in my day, we didn’t call it a “Sixer.” We called it a six-pack and it came with a plastic ring thingy that carried the cans, but harmed birds and marine life. (Spotted by Raymond at Woodman’s Market.)

Fruit by the Food Flavor Mixes

If my math is correct, which it might not be because I have an English degree and a never balanced checkbook, if there are four flavor choices then there are 16 possible ways to mix them. (Spotted by Paul at Acme.)
