SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 3/26/2014

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.

Weight Watchers Greek Frozen Yogurt Cups (Black Cherry Swirl and Strawberry Swirl)

Weight Watchers Greek Frozen Yogurt Cups? More like, “Wait…watch me eat through all three small cups of Greek frozen yogurt in one sitting.” (Spotted by Ayumi at Kroger.)

Campbell's Latin Inspired Soup

We already covered the Blank Bean Cumin & Cilantro variety, but if you’re into Campbell’s Condensed Soup porn, here’s more. (Spotted by Charmi at Safeway.)

V8 Fusion Energy Diet Cranberry Raspberry

Wait a minute…this has just 10 calories and 2 grams of sugar, but the non-diet V8 Fusion + Energy varieties have only 50 calories and 10 grams of sugar. I think I’ll stick with the non-diet varieties when I want fruits, vegetable, caffeine, and skinny cans. (Spotted by Joshua at Walmart.)

Strawberry Creme and Orange Creme Peeps

Do you remember when you’d hear a peep from Peeps only during spring? (Spotted by Maria at Target.)

Nabisco Sweet Barbecue Rice Thins

Sweet Barbecue Rice Thins! That exclamation point might be a sarcastic one. (Spotted by Nick at Price Chopper.)

  1. We got the Peeps. I gave the strawberry ones to my roommate, ate the orange myself. He didn’t complain about the strawberry ones, so I guess they are good. The orange were definitely orange cream. Tasted (and smelled) like a squishy dreamsicle.

  2. The weight watchers frozen Greek yogurt is like a rip-off from the healthy choice line. I think the Greek yogurt craze needs to stop. No point there.

    1. My guess is that it’s all made by the same company. Conagra makes HC and I know WW farms their food out to several suppliers, so perhaps Conagra is one. Otherwise, I would assume Conagra would sue WW.

  3. Campbell’s soup porn!

    Srsly, I’m pleased to see flavor innovation in the cans, not just the bags. I understand that soup-in-a-bag is supposed to be the most totally Millenial hipster trendy youthful thing evah, so that I can now take soup in my backpack everywhere… but cans stack neatly in my limited kitchen cupboard space, and bags do not.
