I’m sorry. That chocolate almond butter pile looks like a pile of something else. I’m so immature. (Spotted by Sandy at Target.)

Chobani Oats

I don’t see a separate container for the steel cut oats. Does that mean the oats are already in the yogurt? Huh, that’s something different from all the other Greek yogurt. You have my interest, Chobani. (Spotted by Lindsay at Meijer.)

Manny Dollar General

I could’ve sworn I’ve seen Philly Cheesesteak Pringles in my junk food mind palace before. Had to double check. Also, I wonder how Dollar General feels about having an old flavor as an exclusive flavor. (Spotted by Manny at Dollar General.)

  1. The chobani oats yogurt I think the oats are already soggy! They could made it into the flips type so the oats stay crunchy and gives texture.

    1. I tried the Chobani oats hoping they would be like overnight oatmeal but instead I find they have too little oats and the oats were pretty hard and not soggy enough for me.

      1. I was not happy with these either. The maple banana flavor was good, but I had the opposite complaint–my cup had way too many oats. They were tough and made the yogurt really heavy/thick/gummy. Couldn’t finish it.

  2. Dollar General’s probably hoping to capture the elusive market of people who’ve been disconsolately seeking Philly Cheesesteak Pringles since 2008.

    That was snark, but using messageboard chatter about deeply missed flavors would probably be a decent way to choose flavors for exclusive agreements.

    1. I’d like to try them (I don’t remember them the first time around) but the Dollar Generals near me are pretty scary and depressing.

  3. It says Exclusive Flavor?????? Question Mark ?????

    Donuts in Walmart ice cream were awesome. Need to try targets
