How about giving us mini Krimpets instead of these mini donuts, Tastykake. (Spotted by Sarah at Dollar General.)

I don’t want to speak for all men, but I’d like a chocolate cupcake flavored nutrition bar. (Spotted by Sara at Target.)

Quaker Quinoa Granola Bars

You’re not so special anymore, Canada! You used to be the only North American country with Quaker Quinoa Granola Bars. But now, we got them too. Sure, probably 30-40 percent of us in the U.S. don’t know how to pronounce “quinoa,” but we have these Quaker bars now. (Spotted by Nick at Hannaford.)

Post Shredded Wheat Crunch Cereal

I find it funny Post calls this cereal Shredded Wheat Crunch! because I like to call Post’s regular Shredded Wheat cereal Shredded Wheat Soggy! (Spotted by Jarred at Walmart.)

  1. The name and design of that Luna box screams sanitary pads. For a second I thought the gluten-free craze had gone there.

    1. Buwhahaha. Omg.. YES! It took me a minute to realize why the box seemed .. unsettling.

      The Shredded Wheat Crunch looks a lot like Canada’s “Shreddies” and a lot less like giant hunks rolled twine.

  2. I was in Quebec last summer and saw a commercial for Quinoa granola bars, in French of course. You know how they pronounced it? Just like it’s spelled, and the way it should be pronounced in English: “quin-O-ah”

  3. The TastyKake salted caramel mini donuts are entirely too tasty. I can’t buy them again because I ate almost the whole bag at once. Not a good idea for many reasons.
