SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 4/2/2014

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.

Tang

Oh, Tang bottle. You don’t need to tell us your orange is an artificial flavor. The name “Tang” says it for you. (Spotted by Aaron at Walmart.)

Keebler Chips Deluxe Triple Chocolate now with Milk Chocolate M&M's

Keebler Chips Deluxe Cookies now with Milk Chocolate M&M’s and no longer with those fake ass M&M’s. (Spotted by A.K. at Lucky Supermarkets.)

New & Improved Lay's Air Pops

Wow. Lay’s Original Air Pops have been available for less than a year and there’s already a “New & Improved” version. (Spotted by Josh at Harris Teeter.)

Pillsbury Simple Oatmeal Brown Sugar Cookies

Because I’m too lazy to look it up on Google, I’m going to guess that the Mill City referenced at the top of the packaging is where the original Pillsbury factory was. But if it reads Hill City, then I’m going to say that’s where the original Pillsbury factory was. (Spotted by Claire G at Wegmans.)

Silk Almondmilk Protein + Fiber

Suck it, cows! (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

  1. Really “new and improved”?! I don’t know why in the earth they need to “improve” the formula?

    Does almonds already have protein and fiber?

    Why in the world Keebler would use M&M’s in their cookies since M&M’s are a totally different brand.

  2. Considering 1 cup of almonds contains 20g of protein, pretty sure I’d rather eat them than drink this.

    Pillsbury needs to come up with edible raw cookie dough then they can stop asking people to not eat it raw.

  3. Pre-mixed Tang & Kool-Aid in bottles like that needs to be boycotted. All the extra energy spent transporting it, the petroleum used for the plastic, etc. Mind you I said boycotted, not banned by law. What should be banned by law is parents calling Tang & Kool-Aid “juice” to their kids. 🙂 (PS: I love Kool Aid)

    1. Agreed. The powder is easier to carry for everyone, in fact, including the end consumer. I’d much rather haul around a powdered canister of Tang than a bottle of the premixed stuff.

      Also, Tang is delicious. Nectar of the powdered drink gods.

      1. Plus the powered version has a different ‘texture’ and you get the undissolved grit at the bottom of your glass…all sweet memories from my childhood.
