Russell Stove Coconut and Dairy Cream Caramel Minis

Russell Stover Pecan Delight Minis

Is 2014 the Year of Resealable Mini Candy Bags? (Spotted by Nick at ShopRite and Sylvia at CVS.)

Jelly Belly Holiday Favorites

A press release tells me the pumpkin pie bean hasn’t been around for years. So it’s the Crispy M&M’s of Jelly Belly Jelly Beans. (Spotted by Wendy at Fred Meyer.)

Archer Farms Kale, Artichoke & Bacon and Spinach & Artichoke Cheese Dips

I bet Archer Farms Tortilla Chips would go great with these Archer Farms Cheese Dips. (Spotted by Troy at Target.)

Haribo The Smurfs Sour! Gummi Candy

Why didn’t they put Sour Smurf on the packaging? There was a Sour Smurf, right? He was blue, with white pants and a white hat. (Spotted by Joshua at Citgo.)

SPOTTED ON SHELVES: Tostitos Rolls

Tostitos Rolls!

Rolls! More like Rolls!? I understand the exclamation point in Chips Ahoy!, because “ahoy” is not a word said at a normal speaking volume in most situations. Is there anyone so excited about Tostitos Rolls that it deserves an exclamation point? (Spotted by Alex at Walmart.)

Philadelphia Limited Edition Baker's Reserve Cream Cheese

If it’s reserved for bakers, am I going to have to show an American Bakers Association, The Bread Bakers Guild of America, The International Dairy-Deli-Bakery Association, or Independent Bakers Association card in order to buy this? Or is “Baker’s Reserved” some marketing phrase to make a cream cheese stick seem more impressive than it really is? (Spotted by Erin at Harris Teeter.)

Cherry Green Apple Lemonade Twizzlers

A Christmas-looking treat, but not Christmas-tasting treat. (Spotted by Erin at Target.)

Cosmos Creations Spicy Sriracha Premium Puffed Corn

The Real Deal Sriracha Veggie Chips

Oh, sriracha! You flavor bandwagon! (Spotted by Dustin at Mariano’s Fresh Market.)

Charm City Cakes Duff Goldman Peppermint Velvet Premium Cookie Mix.

Charm City Cakes Duff Goldman White Chocolate Ginger Cookies Premium Cake Mix

I’m going to prove to you all why you should be thankful I’m not in marketing and I don’t name products. I want to rename the Peppermint Velvet Premium Cookie Mix to PeppeREDmint Velvet Premium Cookies Mix. You’re welcome. (Spotted by Steve at Target.)
