Limited Edition Jello Melon Fusion Gelatin Snacks

Melon Fusion needs a turducken-like renaming. Waterhoneyloupe? Cantawaterdew? Honeywaterdew? Dewwaterloupe? (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

V8 Fusion + Energy (Black Cherry and Original)

Is V8 + Energy Original as salty as original V8? Blech! (Spotted by Sylvia at Ralphs.)

Duncan Hines Decadent Cherry Cobbler Kit

Oh the crazy things I would do with three pounds of cherry cobbler. First, I would bake. Then I would take it to a party and share it. Crazy, right? (Spotted by Jason at Sam’s Club.)

Munchies Behemoth Extra Large Sunflower Seeds

Extra large sunflower seeds? Awesome! Do you know what would be even awesomer? Sunflower seed shells with legs that allow them to walk into the trash so I don’t have to sweep up after some guy. (Spotted by John at Speedway.)

  1. LOL at “Sunflower seed shells with legs that allow them to walk into the trash so I don’t have to sweep up after some guy”. But are sunflower seeds large themselves?

    The Duncan hines cherry cobbler kit seems to be a waste of money. I can take cans of cherry filling and then pop open some 50 cents biscuit dough plop on top.

  2. I was falling asleep with hours of work still to do on a deadline, so I tried a can of V8 Fusion (the blue one, pomegranate?). It tasted kind of blah compared with the non-energy fusions (maybe it was the artificial sweetener) but was drinkable for the needed 90 mg of caffeine. Yikes. Not only was I quickly wide awake, I was still up 15 hours later long after the deadline was met (meaning I was up for a total of about 30 hours before finally going to bed)… I know I’m sensitive to caffeine (two doses of Excedrin in a day means on the ceiling and no sleep), but there’s something in that stuff more powerful than just caffeine. A dose of Excedrin has more caffeine than that but doesn’t pack the same punch.
