Here are some interesting new and limited edition products found on store shelves by us and your fellow readers. If you’ve tried any of the products, share your thoughts about them in the comments.

Jack Link's Wild Side Sausages

This doesn’t seem right. I feel like I should buy a pack of these, cut them up, and then put them in a food dehydrator for a few days. (Spotted by Keith at Walmart.)

Guy Fieri Sausages

I knew Guy Fieri would touch sausages someday. (Spotted by Jeremy at Walmart.)

Oscar Mayer Mini Smokies

When I saw the packaging, I got super excited because I thought these were bacon wrapped mini smokies. However, they’re just regular mini smokies. Thanks for getting my hopes up, Oscar Mayer! My disappointment has a first name it’s O-S-C-A-R, and my disappointment has a second name it’s M-A-Y-E-R. (Spotted by Charmi at Walmart.)

Cascadian Farm Protein Chewy Bars

I learned Cascadian Farm is a General Mills company. I also learned Cascadian Farm is an actual farm, not like MorningStar Farm or Pepperidge Farm. (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

Annie's Homegrown Chewy Cluten Free Granola Bars

Did you know Annie’s Homegrown makes a mac & cheese pizza? Oh, they also make these bar thingies, but who cares? They make a frickin’ mac & cheese pizza. (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Iced Coffee

Wait a minute. I didn’t know Krispy Kreme coffee was good enough that it deserved to be bottled. (Spotted by Robert at Walmart.)

Jelly Belly Popsicle

If the center was Jelly Belly Buttered Popcorn flavored or filled with cocaine, then it would truly have a unique center. (Spotted by Kelly at Walmart.)

Special Edition Red Classics Popsicle

Special Turn Your Tongue Red Edition! (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

Dr. Pepper Retro Glass

I didn’t know what the 10, 2, and 4 was referring to, but I soon learned 10, 2, and 4 o’clock is Dr Pepper Time. Man, that is a lot of soda to be drinking in one day. (Spotted by Aaron at Center Market.)

Limited Edition Gatorade Fierce Green Apple

It’s been so long since I’ve had Gatorade. It’s also been so long since I’ve exercised, which would explain the previous sentence. (Spotted by Aaron at 7-Eleven.)

Limited Edition Tangy BBQ Pork and Angus Beef Melts Hot Pockets

I get more excited than I should when Nestle comes out with new Limited Edition Hot Pockets. Every year since 2011, Hot Pockets has released a pair of limited edition flavors. In 2011, it was Four Cheese Garlic Pasta Bake and Spicy Hawaiian Style Pizza. In 2012, it was Chili Sauce Cheese Dog and BBQ Recipe Bacon Burger. Spicy Beef Nacho and Cuban Style were last year’s flavors. (Spotted by Troy at Target.)

Limited Edition Amp Energy Dale Jr. Sour

If I shotgun a Limited Edition Amp Energy Dale Jr. Sour and my face scrunches up, I’m not sure people would be able to tell if I have brain freeze or if the energy drink is too sour. (Spotted by Alec at 7-Eleven.)

Lay's Kettle Cooked 40% Less Fat Jalapeno Cheddar Potato Chips

Spicy, cheesy, crunchy, and 40% less fatty? Y wouldn’t I like it? Sorry about all the Y’s. (Spotted by Dustin at Pete’s Fresh Market.)

Farm Rich Signature Sweets

Farm Rich Cheese Sticks

It’s so weird to see a Farm Rich product that’s served after a meal and not before. (Spotted by Amanda at Walmart.)

Quaker Popped Sweet Salty Caramel Corn Cheddar Cheese

I’m going to be honest, this doesn’t look like a good combination and I think Quaker only put them together because of the quadruple C’s, which would look nice with the triple P’s and double S’s on the packaging. (Spotted by Jessica at Walmart.)

Glaceau VitaminWater Energy 2014

Glacéau VitaminWater Energy…not be confused with Glacéau VitaminEnergy (which I thought was really awesome). The newer version gets its caffeine from green coffee bean extract *cough* Starbucks Refreshers *cough*. 7-Eleven also has an exclusive flavor, Raspberry Citrus. (Spotted by Aaron at 7-Eleven.)
