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.

Prairie Farms Cupcake Classics (Very Vanilla, Chocolate Truffle, and Strawberry Banana)

I’m a little disappointed with your Cupcake Classics, Prairie Farms. I was hoping you’d somehow top jellybean milk. (Spotted by Alex at Walmart.)

Tastykake Limited Edition Baked Pies (Key Lime Pie, Banana Split, and Orange Kream-cicle)

Tastykake Summer Exclusive Orange Juniors

If you’re into limited edition Tastykake porn, here you go! Although, I now realize it’s not so porny with them still in the packages. (Spotted by Paul at Acme and Erin at Giant.)

Thomas' Limited Edition Apple Pie English Muffins

Dear Thomas’: It’s hard to keep track of whether you’ve done either a limited edition bagel or English muffin version of flavors, so I made a Flickr album to help. So I’m ready for whatever bagel or English muffins you unleash. (Spotted by Erin at Giant.)

Larry the Cable Guy Biscuits & Gravy Tater Chips

I wonder if Larry the Cable Guy eats Larry the Cable Guy Tater Chips, and if so, does he feel weird eating them? Does he look down at the bag, see himself looking back at him, grin, and think, “I’ve made it”? Does he eat them in front of a mirror with his Prilosec OTC commercial playing in the background on one TV and Mater’s Tall Tales being shown on another and think to himself, “I could probably fill a pool with money and swim in it”? Chip Review tried them. (Spotted by Charity at Rural King.)

    Is the Prairie Farms pic missing or is it just me?

    where the larry the cable guy chips next to the jeff foxworthy grit chips??

  3. Anonymous says:

    Are those Chips from 2005 when Larry the Cable Guy was relevant?

    • Larry the Cable Guy was relevant?

      • Jamie B says:

        Why didn’t they tap Ron White for the tater chips? That’s the real question. I mean, come on, he’s Tater Salad! Why is Larry the Freaking Cable Guy on the tater chip bags? There’s even, apparently, a “Tater Salad” flavor. With Larry. Why?

        Sigh. Some people just do not know their low-brow blue collar comedy…

    I picked some of these up last week and one chip was enough for me. Did not like the flavor.
