SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 11/11/2014

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.

Market Pantry Cinnamon Vanilla Holiday Milk

Tis the season of Market Pantry Holiday Milk! Loved their Chocolate Mint Milk. Loved their Snickerdoodle Milk. Will probably love this new flavor. (Spotted by Alex at Target.)

Barton Creek Crossing Pumpkin Spread

I’m posting this only because one of its ingredients is frickin’ rain water! (Spotted by Nathan at H-E-B.)

ThinkThin Pumpkin Spice and Dark Chocolate Peppermint Lean Protein & Fiber Bars

Of course there’s a pumpkin spice-flavored ThinkThin Lean Protein & Fiber Bar! (Spotted by Sylvia at Sprouts.)

479 Degrees Limited Edition Dark Chocolate + Bing Cherries Popcorn

If you’re wondering why the company is called 479 Degrees, I shall save you a Google search and tell you it honors the unpublished sequel to Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. I shall also tell you that the previous statement was a lie and I wrote it to prank people who happen to do a Google search for why the company is called 479 Degrees, but just reads the excerpt Google gives and doesn’t click the link. The real reason is because the company’s founder believes 479 degrees is the optimal temperature for popping corn. (Spotted by Ryan at Target.)

Gold Emblem Select Gourmet European Milk Chocolate Truffles (Strawberry Cheesecake or Caramel Brownie)

Hey look, kleptomaniacs! (Spotted by Sylvia at CVS.)

  1. Aren’t Snicker-doodles basically cinnamon cookies? So wouldn’t Cinnamon Vanilla milk be almost the same as Snicker-doodle milk?

  2. Cinnamon-vanilla milk sounds like “all your hipster friends are talking about horchata, but we know the rice part freaks you out, so here!”

    CVS has Lindt knock-offs? Iyyiyiyiyiy! The only reason I’ve been going to Walgreen’s lately is the better selection of Russell Stover pumpkins, but if CVS can emulate Lindt, we have a deal.

    1. I didn’t try them but they remind me more of Godiva truffles. They’re strawberry cheesecake and caramel brownie, not just your standard Lindt cream. They vcomd in standup bags too, but it’s nice you can just buy one to try. Although this store hid them on the middle of nowhere; you’d think they’d be by the register.
