Grilled cheese-flavored bread…naturally flavored, but unnatural in my mind. (Spotted by Andy at SuperTarget.)

Little Debbie Brownie Pumpkins

I guess if the Japanese can make square melons, then Little Debbie can make hexagonal brownie pumpkins. (Spotted by Claire G at Weis Markets.)

There is a part of me that wants to poke a straw into one of these bags so that I can enjoy a savory Capri Sun. (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

This seems like a ground coffee flavor Dunkin’ has offered in previous years, but Google says no. (Spotted by Lindsay at Target.)

    1. Get one of those plastic & mesh inserts (BB&B and other places carry them), and you can use any ground coffee you like. I used one for the Roasterie chocolate coffee I brought back from a trip to Kansas City, and it worked great.

  1. Admittedly curious about that grilled cheese bread…I have to assume there’s just cheese of some sort baked into the actual bread ? Wondering what would make it “grilled” cheese bread, i mean to me the 2 main characteristics of a grilled cheese are the crunchiness from toasting/grilling and oozing cheese. How could they possibly recreate either in what looks like plain sandwich bread ?

  2. I might try the Target Thai Green Curry sauce even though I know there is a 1 in 1,000 chance that it tastes like Thai Green Curry sauce, it is 9 oz for $2.69 which means they have to keep the food cost below $1.00, I doubt there is much coconut milk in that sucker.

  3. am i reading that article correctly… the square watermelon is the equivalent of $83 usd, which is two to three times the price of a standard watermelon. that sounds insane! does anyone know what this would be in terms of other food costs or relative cost of living? i have a friend who lives in a small town where milk is five times the price of soda… really makes me feel lucky to live in a place where wholesome food is relatively affordable and seasonal produce is inexpensive overall.

  4. apparently you can get a quick meal for less than 1000 yen, fancier meals are 3000 yen. this watermelon is 10000 yen! and still, a regular watermelon can be 3-5000 yen. that’s brutal; i’d go broke… or just have to give up watermelon.
