I’m surprised we haven’t seen more food products that promote the Warcraft movie. I imagine there would’ve been an ice cream or something by now. (Spotted by Rachel C at Dollar Tree.)

I’d like to see V8 take their original vegetable juice and turn it into an energy drink. UPDATE: It turns out V8 did that. (Spotted by Josh at Target.)

Lifeway Kefir Hibiscus Rhubarb Pie

Lifeway celebrated their 25th anniversary with Birthday Cake flavored kefir, and they’re doing it again for their 30th. Also, it may be old, but it’s a more interesting flavor than the new Hibiscus Rhubarb Pie flavor. (Spotted by Rachel C at Harmons Grocery.)

  1. There actually has been a V8+Energy that took their original V8 juice and made it into an energy drink. It comes in the same size cans as their vFusion energy drinks, if I recall correctly. I didn’t notice any difference in taste compared to their regular V8 juice, and I didn’t notice any difference in my energy level after drinking it.

    1. I came here to say the same thing. I’m pretty sure I first learned of it from “Spotted on Shelves”.

  2. The new V8 energy drink sounds different from the VFusion one that doesn’t taste very good although it’s drinkable. So I might try this if I see it. The fusion one lacked taste but was extremely powerful energy-wise. I’m sensitive to caffeine, but this was way beyond my usual reaction. Which I needed, I was falling asleep standing up and had many hours to go before finished with a job. I stayed up for many hours past delivery also because I was still wired.

  3. We found the Pirate’s Booty Granola Fruit Coins at Grocery Outlet. One box (5 pouches) was $1.99
    My 2 and 5 year olds like both the berry and chocolate flavors, although these are not puffy snacks like the booty. The coins are chewy due to the first few ingredients (dates, raisins, oats, dried blueberries, quinoa…) but once you get used to them and aren’t expecting puffy goodness, they are a great snack. As a parent hoping to not feed my children too much processed/packaged snacks, the list of ingredients is pretty good so I’m glad my kids like these!
    Note: by “pretty good” I really just mean I can pronounce everything on the ingredients list. As far as sugar to protein ratio goes, these are not spectacular (10 sugar, 1 protein) however, if my kids think these are a treat then that’s pretty good!
