I wish Safeway has a bunch of pumpkin spice store brand stuff like Kroger and Giant. (Spotted by Robbie at Kroger.)

I don’t follow instant ramen as closely as I follow Oreo cookies, so I don’t know how often Maruchan and Nissin come out with new flavors. (Spotted by Jonathan J at Food Lion.)

A veggie pot pie? This would’ve never happened if Marie Callender was alive! Actually, maybe she did make them. I’m too lazy to Google it to find out. But this does look good. (Spotted by Jonathan J at Food Lion.)

  1. I hope the Marie Callender’s veggie pot pie really is vegetarian, that they didn’t mess it up with some non-vegetarian ingredients. I’ve been wondering for years why meatless all-veg pot pies weren’t marketed by the mainstream manufacturers, using cheese as the protein. Cheese pizzas are popular, after all. Ditto for veggie lasagna and other pasta dishes. There are various veggie producers who make veggie pot pies, but I’d like to try a junkier, er, more mainstream version.

  2. I’d pick that Switzer’s licorice up if I could find it. I’ve never seen the brand though, looks like they’re Missouri based. I tried Twizzlers caramel apple licorice yesterday, and it was surprisingly delicious.

  3. I just hope they don’t make pumpkin spice ramen…although a dessert one would be interesting. Maybe they could make oreo ramen. Or ramen oreos (ewwwww).

    That pot pie sounds yummy. Hope we get it soon here.

  4. I’m confused. You think starbucks should use this licorice instead of straws? Hmmm a gummy warm coffee mashup; interesting. At first I thought you were referring to those cookie straws they have and you thought this was a knockoff. Man I must be tired!
