I’m surprised we haven’t seen more Angry Birds Movie snack products. Maybe it’s because there were a lot of Angry Birds snack products that had a tie-in with the game. (Spotted by Carla at Walmart.)

Tastykake Peanut Butter Cupkakes

Last year, Tastykake introduced mini versions of these. I was not a fan, but maybe these might be better since there’s a different cake-to-creme ratio? (Spotted by Kelly S at Walmart.)

Hostess Limited Edition Red, White & Blue! Twinkies

Red and blue dots are the best Hostess could do to make them festive. How about put some popping candy in the cream or bake them into the cake to make it like fireworks are going off in our mouths. (Spotted by Josh C at Meijer.)

Kellogg's Cocoa Krispies Treats

I could’ve sworn Kellogg’s put out Cocoa Krispies Treats before, but I couldn’t find anything about them via Google. Am I going crazy? Am I in a different dimension? (Spotted by Francoise at ShopRite.)
