Skinny Cow Chocolate Mousse Ganache

Chocolate mousse ganache? More like chocolate mousse I’m gonna nosh. (Spotted by Amanda at Walmart.)

Lean Cuisine Morning Collection

I wonder how complex the warming instructions are for these Lean Cuisine Morning Collection breakfast sandwiches. The prep instructions for frozen breakfast sandwiches usually tell me to wrap the sandwich in a paper towel and put it on a microwave safe plate, then put it in the microwave for 90 second at 30 percent power, then flip it over and heat it up for 60 seconds at full power, and then let it sit in the microwave for another 60 seconds.

Healthy Choice Cherry Chocolate Fudge Swirl Greek Frozen Yogurt

Another Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt flavor! Quick question: Do the stores near you place the Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt next to the Healthy Choice meals instead of in the ice cream aisle? Some of mine do. (Spotted by Amanda at Walmart.)

Orbit Apple Remix Gum

An Apple Remix Orbit Gum a day keeps the doctor on your back about swallowing your gum. (Spotted by Natalie at Walmart.)

Limited Edition Skinny Cow Chocolate Raspberry Heavenly Crisp

The Skinny Cow Facebook page says these are available only at Target. (Waits for someone to tell me otherwise.) (Spotted by Blaire at Target.)

Fiber One Meal Bar

Maybe it’s my inner Adrian Monk, but it bothers me that the Fiber One Strawberry Greek Yogurt Meal Bar box is bigger than the other Fiber One Meal Bar varieties. They’re all the same weight, but for some reason the Strawberry Greek Yogurt one is bigger. (Spotted by RiRi at Pick N’ Save.)

Nature Valley Breakfast Biscuits

Look at what you started, belVita! Are you happy with yourself? You’ve got us using the British version of “biscuits.” (Spotted by RiRi at Walmart.)

NutriGrain Fruit & Oat Harvest Bars

Real fruit, whole grains, and four grams of protein do not impress me, Nutri-Grain Fruit & Oat Harvest Bar, since other bars have them. How about a bar that has 20 grams of protein to give me energy, 20 grams of fiber to make me regular, and be roughly the size of my forearm so I can eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. (Spotted by Amanda at Target.)

Quaker Real Medleys Cereal

Quaker Real Medleys are available in hot cereal, snack bar, and now dry cereal form. I’m guessing it won’t be long before we see Quaker Real Medleys Breakfast Biscuits. (Spotted by Amanda at Walmart.)

Post Great Grains Digestive Blend Cereal

I’m curious to know what would happen if I started my day with a bowl of Post Great Grains Digestive Blend Cereal, had an Activia yogurt for a mid-morning snack, ate a Fiber One Meal Bar for lunch, and consumed another Activia yogurt for a mid-afternoon snack. Would my dinner consist of me sitting on the toilet regretting it all? (Spotted by Dubba at Walmart.)

SPOTTED ON SHELVES – Mountain Dew Kickstart Limeade

Mountain Dew Kickstart Energizing Limeade

Another Mountain Dew Kickstart flavor?! Actually, there’s two new varieties. Besides this Limeade, there’s also Mountain Dew Kickstart Black Cherry. To be honest, I thought Mountain Dew Kickstart would’ve been discontinued by now. (Spotted by Logan at Walmart.)

INTERNATIONAL SPOTTED ON SHELVES – Lay’s Pops Crispy Bacon & Cheese Flavour and Paprika (Netherlands)

Lay's Pops Crispy Bacon & Cheese Flavour (Netherlands)

Lay's Pops Paprika (Netherlands)

The U.S. has these except they’re called Air Pops and come in three flavors: original, barbecue, and sour cream & onion. The sender of these photos tell me paprika is a common chip flavor in the Netherlands. So I guess paprika is their barbecue. (Spotted by Anna at Albert Heijn in the Netherlands.)

SPOTTED ON SHELVES – Starbucks VIA Latte

Starbucks VIA Latte

Starbucks VIA Latte comes in two flavors: Caffe Mocha and Vaniila Latte. Interesting, but how am I supposed to make horrible unrecognizable latte art with this? (Spotted by Sylvia at Starbucks.)
