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.

7-Select Texas, Carolina, and Memphis Style BBQ Potato Chips

Back in my day, we only had regular barbecue potato chips. There was none of this regional barbecue chip flavors. We also drove cars that got 15 miles to the gallon and listened to 60-90 minutes of music on cassette tapes. And we liked it! (Spotted by Chad at 7-Eleven.)

David Wasabi & Soy Sauce Almonds

I wonder how well this would go with sushi. (Spotted by Charmi at Foodland.)

Picadillo and Empanadas Buen Sabor

Sweet Empanadas Buen Sabor

Tamal and Pipian Sauce Buen Sauce

Buen Sabor Meals

The frozen food aisle just got more crowded with Latin American entrees from Buen Sabor. (Spotted by Amanda at Target.)

Fiber One Streusel Bar

While doing some digging about these Fiber One Streusel Bars, I found they also come in different packaging. Wait. Perhaps one is the evil twin. Do any of them have a goatee? (Spotted by Brian at Walmart.)

  1. Carolina-style BBQ chips are a thing?

    OMG.

    May have to brave the grungy terrors of my local 7-11. The few 7-11’s out here are strange dives, since this is Circle K territory.

  2. If those almonds are like the Emerald Wasabi & Soy Sauce ones, there’s a light dusting of powdered wasabi flavoring, and then a huge hit of pure MSG standing in for soy sauce (they used to be better, but they changed the recipe a couple years ago).

  3. I tried the plantain and queso empanadas a couple weeks ago. Found them at Target. Be warned – they have Gorgonzola cheese in them, which for me ruins the taste.
