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.

Kraft Philadelphia Bacon Cream Cheese

I thought everything was already bacon-ized. I guess not. (Spotted by Adam at Giant.)

Bigelow Salted Caramel Tea

I guess this caramel product won’t get stuck to my teeth. (Spotted by Sylvia at Vons.)

Thomas Double Protein English Muffins

Not sure if I need this since I can also double the protein of a regular Thomas’ English Muffin by topping it with ham or sprinkling GNC protein powder mix over it. (Spotted by Adam at Safeway.)

Plum Organics Savory Minis and Pizza Minis

“Suck it, Annie’s!” said the Plum Organics executive I made up in my mind. (Spotted by Sofia at Target.)

Sara Lee Party Sprinkled Iced Brownie

What does “party sprinkled” mean? Were they sprinkled on at a party? Are these special sprinkles made only for parties? Maybe it’s a misprint and it was supposed to say “partly sprinkled” because the whole brownie isn’t covered with sprinkles. (Spotted by kcal at Walmart.)

  1. The bacon-flavored Cream Cheese is a really off-putting color. It also smells a bit strange.

    But it tastes enough like bacon that I fooled my husband (briefly) into thinking there was bacon on his egg & cheese bagel sammich.

  2. I picked up some of those Pizza Minis the other day and just got around to eating them yesterday. I found them at a Target store in Seattle priced at $6.50 (outrageous), but on sale for $4.50 (lest I would not have purchased them). I got the Three Cheese and Tomato flavor, and I microwaved them because I was at work. They were pretty good – comparable to Bagel Bites, I guess, but a bit better tasting and not as junky. I think they would turn out a lot better in the oven, because then the bread part can crisp up (microwaving makes it soft) and the cheese probably won’t melt off.

    Apparently, they are made with a bunch of vegetables, are 70% organic and have 9g of protein per serving (a serving is 5, there are 10 in a box) – which makes them not a bad snack or meal especially in place of Bagel Bites or Pizza Rolls.

  3. “Party Sprinkled” means that the product is suited for an uptight, manic-depressive, self-hating suburban upper-middle class clone who made a pilgrammage to the Longaberger basket back in 2002 and currently says “Really ?!” and is trying to get the nerve to use “twerk” in a conversation with her so-called ‘friends’ at the local gathering of iSoccer-momz 2.0 at the HOA meeting that was held and brought up the fact that her husband’s F350 pickup truck has a lift-kit that is 48″ too high for the neighborhood regulations even though he works in an office and has never played a contact sport in his life or been in a fist-fight since elementary school ……………..but the “party sprinkle” is the bland-lifeless-soul-less-personification of the empty concept of “fun” that these fake twizzler smiles seem to appropriate on their path to emulate Vanna White’s greatest eye rolls every time Pat Sajak palmed the right-buttock of a bubbly coed whose life was changed forever by that stiff, crinkly falcon claw scraping her pillowy cupcake blossom.. ummmmmm,.,.,.., nevermind ………….
