SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 6/19/2014

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.

V8 Splash Lemonade and Strawberry Lemonade

Are there even vegetables in V8 Splash Lemonade and Strawberry Lemonade? (Spotted by Jenn at Walmart.)

Betty Crocker Skylanders Fruit Flavored Snacks

I’m going to be honest here and say I have no idea what Skylanders is. Does that make me uncool? I also don’t know who Iggy Azalea is. (Spotted by Troy A at Meijer.)

Crush Tuti-Fruti and Crush Mandarina

I learned Orange Crush soda is over 100 years old. These two flavors are much younger. (Spotted by Sylvia at 99 Cent Store.)

Betty Crocker Fruit Gushers Hawaiian Punch

Look! It’s Fruit Gushers Hawaiian Punch, which should not be confused with Fruit Gushers Hawaiian Punch that has just Hawaiian Punch flavored Fruit Gushers. (Spotted by kcal at Meijer.)

  1. In fact, both of the V8 Splash drinks do contain A vegetable.. “Reconstituted Vegetable Juice (water and Concentrated Juice of Sweet Potatoes)”

    The strawberry blend contains both watermelon, strawberry and lemon concentrates. Lemon is just sweet potatoes + lemon concentrates.

    1. So did I. Upon reflection, that makes no sense at all, that he’d have horns, yet I like the idea of the Hawaiian Punch guy as a sort of horned god of fruit-flavored violence.

  2. I had to read the first sentence multiple times and look at both boxes a few more in order to figure out what you ultimately meant. They probably both taste the same anyway despite the different colors.
