SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 3/19/2014

Topics: Spotted on Shelves

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.

Double Dutch Thick Ripple Appetizers

There are also Buffalo Wing and Blue Cheese and Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders flavors of these chips. Since these appear to be available only in Canada, can one of our Canadian readers combine ketchup flavored potato chips with the Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders chips? (Spotted by Ben at Circle K in Canada.)

Kellogg's Special K Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Flatbread Breakfast Sandwich

I could’ve sworn we covered this in a previous Spotted post because I remember talking about a round slice of bacon before, which is what it looks like it has. But we haven’t covered it. Or maybe it’s from my dreams. (Spotted by Blaire at Wegmans.)

Yuengling Bacon Flavored Barbecue Sauce

I’m so confused. Is it bacon flavored barbecue sauce beer I’m supposed to drink? Or is it beer and bacon flavored barbecue sauce I’m supposed to put on ribs and chicken? (Spotted by Travis at Stop & Shop.)

Nestle Coffee-mate Cinnamon Creme Natural Bliss

I’m going to guess one of those all-natural ingredients is cinnamon. (Spotted by Blaire at Acme.)

GNC Energy B Vitamin Liquid Water Enhancer

Ugh. Even GNC has gotten into the liquid water enhancer game. I do not look forward to the day when any company can stick their logo on a generic liquid water enhancer so that they can give it away as swag at conventions and job fairs. (Spotted by Andrew at Harris Teeter.)

    I do. I love free swag.

    Calimari and tzatziki chips? Canadians get all the good stuff.

      Go Old Dutch! I miss your delicious goods. Canadian flavors have always been more unique, I found. They change/rotate quickly also.

    Also – according to CoffeMate’s website:
    INGREDIENTS: NONFAT MILK, HEAVY CREAM, SUGAR, NATURAL FLAVOR. CONTAINS: MILK INGREDIENTS.

    Why wouldn’t you list Cinnamon on the ingredients??? WEIRD.

  4. sylvia says:

    they used some sort of other “natural flavor” to make cinnamon flavor? probably a money thing. but what would it be?

  5. Laura says:

    Those Old Dutch flavors have been out for about a month now, I’ve seen all of them except the Calamari flavor here in Iowa.
