Does anyone want to guess how many Brach’s Valentine’s products we’ll see between now and February? I’m going to guess 36. (Spotted by Rachel C at Target.)

I thought ALL of Kashi’s products have some kind of “plant power.” (Spotted by Rachel C at Target.)

Had to look up pepita. It’s a pumpkin seed. Now I have to look up sorghum. It’s a major source of feed for livestock. (Spotted by Amanda at Target.)

“The huge pizza with a big stomping’ crust.” “Great,” said sarcastically by crust haters everywhere. (Spotted by Daniel N at Walmart.)

  1. I just had the Triple Pepperoni Sasquatch pizza the other night. It’s actually pretty good and filling, though at a $10 price point, I’m not sure I’d buy it very often. It’s definitely one of the better tasting pizzas on the higher end of the price point though but I could see it being maybe closer to $7 or $8 personally.

  2. I saw the Pub Collection candy bars at my local Target and was tempted to try them until I saw the price. They want $4 for a single candy bar, granted it’s a decent sized candy bar, but $4? I had to pass.

  3. Sorghum is people food, too. I first started using it decades ago, it was also called milo. The flour or meal can be used like cornmeal. And popped sorghum is great! Looks like miniature popcorn, but no hard hulls. People with corn allergies can generally eat it. Only certain kinds of home corn poppers can handle the tiny sorghum seeds, apparently, but it’s sold already popped also. I get them in bags under the Mini Pops name.

  4. I found the GoLean Vanilla Pepita at a Wisconsin Meijer as part of a $2 Kashi product sale. Very decent nutritional stats (for cereal). Tastes good! Haven’t seen the GoLean bars anywhere, though. Where in the country were they discovered?
