That’s nice, Pillsbury. But besides making them gluten-free, how about making them baking-free? That would also be helpful. (Spotted by Erin K at Walmart.)

SPOTTED ON SHELVES: Little Debbie P.B. Richies

Little Debbie P.B. Richies

This has got me thinking about Hostess. Why don’t they offer their Cup Cakes, Ho Hos, and Ding Dongs with a peanut butter creme? I’d like to think they’d make a few million dollars if they did that. Also, I wonder who’d win in a fight: Mr. Peanut or that crowned peanut mascot on the box. (Spotted by Robbie at H-E-B.)
