How am I going to explain this to the aliens? (Spotted by Nick at Walmart.)

Krusteaz Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie Mix, Blueberry Muffin Mix, and Honey Cornbread Mix

Now that I think about it. I have no idea how to pronounce Krusteaz. Is it crews-teas? Or crews-tee-azz? Or crust-ease? Oh wait. Crust-ease makes sense. Sorry. (Spotted by Claire G at Giant.)

Russell Stover Cookie Dough Santa Candy Bar

Russell Stover Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Santa Candy Bar and Dark Chocolate & Coconut Cream Santa

Russell Stover Peppermint Cream Santa

I’m waiting for a Russell Stover Santa that’s filled with what’s in the real Santa. Metal, plastic, glass, and circuit boards. Yes, Santa is a cyborg. (Spotted by Rene at Walgreens.)

Marie Callender's Family Size Chicken Pot Pie

Serves six humans…or serves one bear that knows how to use an oven. (Spotted by Nick at Walmart.)

  1. Did you see those new sausage and ricotta pot pies (Italian version) made by Bertolli that are single serving? I had one, and they are really good. Even my three kids loved them.

  2. Last time I check (single serving) Marie Callender pot pies (turkey) are absolute disasters nutritional wise, delicious but awful for you.

  3. As being a gluten-free eater, the name “Krusteaz” has never been more accurate. The dryness and crustiness of a GF baked good can equate to a dry sponge. Not even a tasty colored one to boot.

    1. I periodically need to avoid wheat, so I can directly compare GF to wheat-laden. I just tried Ener-gee (sp?) GF rice/tapioca bread and it’s not only sturdy but very tasty toasted at least. I only tried the lite version, there’s a regular version also. I got it at vitacost online, my local only has the pricier Schär GF line. I was surprised it was so good. It’s nutritionally nothing, though, but useful as a carrier and very easy on the digestion (mine, at least).

      Schär’s multigrain GF bread is quite tasty toasted or untoasted but not very sturdy (i don’t like their white bread) since sometimes parts are broken off in the package. The survivors seem stronger, though, as is generally true in life.

      Lucy’s GF cookies are excellent. Dairy and egg free also. She uses some bean/grain/other flour blend that really works. They’re small but very tasty. Crunchy, not soft.

  4. No more farm subsidies! I’m so tired of farmers complaining about the cost of having dairy cows graze and the cost of feed. Dannon has proven that you can feed them cotton candy and pop rocks instead and it makes the cows very happy.

  5. I wonder if the Russell Stover Santa coconut cream chocolates taste like a Mounds bar. I guess I will be forced to try one.

    Christmas in October. Love it!
