I’m no graphic designer, but shouldn’t “pumpkin spice” be a bit more prominent? Unless, Seattle Chocolates don’t want to sell more of these. (Spotted by Sylvia at World Market.)

I wish Hostess came up with as many products as Entenmann’s because I’d like them to come up with more funny and naughty-sounding product names. Perhaps Long Slongs? (Spotted by Debra at Stop & Shop.)

One thought on “SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 10/13/2015

  1. Isn’t gold kind of soft? A gold knife might look impressive, but steel probably slices up those little whole oat grains better…. Just sayin’. Not that it wasn’t an interesting idea, considering today’s prices.

    A fellow with celiac who was very sensitive to tiny amounts of gluten said he could eat oats if he bought them as the whole grain, spread them out, and picked out any stray wheat grains (often the fields are close to each other). I think he just cooked them whole, like rice, rather than splitting them as in steel cut oats.
