Nestle Coffee-mate Hazelnut Natural Bliss

Why isn’t there a Nutella coffee creamer? That would fly off the shelves like Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter. Also, why isn’t there cookie butter coffee creamer? (Spotted by Lindsay at Meijer.)

Kraft Hot Habanero String Cheese

I can slowly burn my mouth…string by string. (Spotted by Lindsay at Meijer.)

Quaker Real Medleys SuperGrains

Ooooh! Super Grains! The only thing super about quinoa is how super hard it is to figure out how to say “quinoa.” (Spotted by Lindsay at Meijer.)

Utz Limited Edition Yuengling Hot Wing Sauce Potato Chips

Ewww! Two old Pennsylvanians hooking up! (Spotted by Michelle at Mars Super Markets.)

Russell Stover Apple Pie Candy Pumpkin

All these Russell Stover Candy Pumpkins look alike. (Spotted by Shannon at Walgreens.)

P.F. Chang's Home Menu Chicken Mini Egg Rolls and Steamed Brown Rice

Mmm…frozen microwaveable brown rice. (Spotted by Jeff at Safeway.)

Kraft Philadelphia Bacon Cream Cheese

I thought everything was already bacon-ized. I guess not. (Spotted by Adam at Giant.)

Bigelow Salted Caramel Tea

I guess this caramel product won’t get stuck to my teeth. (Spotted by Sylvia at Vons.)

Thomas Double Protein English Muffins

Not sure if I need this since I can also double the protein of a regular Thomas’ English Muffin by topping it with ham or sprinkling GNC protein powder mix over it. (Spotted by Adam at Safeway.)

Plum Organics Savory Minis and Pizza Minis

Plum Organics Pizza Minis

Plum Organics Savory Minis

“Suck it, Annie’s!” said the Plum Organics executive I made up in my mind. (Spotted by Sofia at Target.)

Sara Lee Party Sprinkled Iced Brownie

What does “party sprinkled” mean? Were they sprinkled on at a party? Are these special sprinkles made only for parties? Maybe it’s a misprint and it was supposed to say “partly sprinkled” because the whole brownie isn’t covered with sprinkles. (Spotted by kcal at Walmart.)

SPOTTED ON SHELVES: Kellogg’s Eggo Breakfast Sandwiches

Kellogg's Eggo Sausage, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches

Kellogg's Eggo Egg & Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches

Before you get excited, let me rain on your parade. Kellogg’s calls it a “soft waffle-style bread,” so it’s bread shaped like waffles and not the Eggo waffles we all know and heat up in our toasters. Bummer.

There’s also a bacon, egg, and cheese version, but not even bacon can turn my frown upside down when it comes to these sandwiches not having actual Eggo waffles.

The sausage version has 290 calories, 17 grams of fat, 6 grams of saturated fat, 510 milligrams of sodium, and 10 grams of protein. The bacon one has 210 calories, 10 grams of fat, 3.5 grams of saturated fat, 550 milligrams of sodium, and 9 grams of protein. And the egg and cheese has 200 calories, 8 grams of fat, 2.5 grams of saturated fat, 470 milligrams of sodium, and 9 grams of protein. (Spotted by Chris at Meijer.)

Giant Limited Edition Pumpkin Bread

Sliced pumpkin bread? I did not see that coming. (Spotted by Garrison at Stop & Shop.)

Quaker Real Medleys Caramel Apple Flavor Oatmeal

The Target circular in Sunday’s paper tells me this flavor is only available at Target. The Target circular also tells me it hasn’t forgiven me for going into a Walmart the other day. (Spotted by Lindsay at Target.)

Brach's S'mores Caramels and Sea Salt Caramel Royals

Brach's Candy Corn Gummies and Apple Caramel Royals

Brach’s sure has been busy. (Spotted by Sylvia at Raley’s and Sarah at CVS.)

Hawaiian Punch Fruit Juicy Red Cotton Candy

There’s also a Hawaiian Punch Lemon Berry Squeeze Cotton Candy, but why would you want Hawaiian Punch cotton candy that doesn’t taste like Hawaiian Punch? (Spotted by Keith at Dollar General.)

Starbucks Mocha and Cinnamon Dolce Keurig K-Cups

Don’t want to go to a Starbucks to get a Mocha or Cinnamon Dolce coffee? Well then, you can go to your favorite grocery store to find out if they carry the new Starbucks Mocha and Cinnamon Dolce K-Cups. And if not? Well, I guess you’re going to have to go to a Starbucks to get a Mocha or Cinnamon Dolce coffee. (Spotted by Lindsay at Kroger.)

Dannon Oikos Limited Edition Pumpkin Pie Greek Yogurt

There are lots of new pumpkin yogurts this year. Someone should buy them all and compare them. If only I knew someone who ran a food review blog. (Spotted by Jacob at Walmart.)

Creative Snacks Co. Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Yogurt Pretzels

Creative Snacks Co. Limited Edition Apple Cider Yogurt Pretzels

Hmm. I haven’t seen an apple cider-flavored product before. Well, I can’t wait until 2016 when there are half a dozen apple cider-flavored yogurts. (Spotted by Kerry at Wegmans.)

Celestial Seasonings Caramel Apple Dream Holiday Tea

No caffeine? Caramel Apple Dream ruined for me. :( (Spotted by Kerry at Wegmans.)

In case you’re wondering which flavor won Kemps Hometown Favorites Contest at the Minnesota State Fair last year. (Spotted by Erin at Byerly’s.)

Duncan Hines Limited Edition Autumn Velvets

BROWN VELVET CAKE! I called it! (Spotted by Richard at Walmart.)
