Here are some new products found on store shelves by us and your fellow readers. We may or may not review them, but we’d like to let you know what new items are popping up. We’ll also occasionally throw in an unusual product.


Baking technology FTW! So I take it these are basically huge canisters filled with the stuff that’s found in Betty Crocker’s Warm Delights. No need for vegetable oil and no need to crack eggs and then dig around in the egg whites for bits of egg shells that accidentally fell in because I hit the edge of the bowl too hard with the egg.

I prefer chunky peanut butter over creamy peanut butter, but I don’t like how I go through a jar of the chunky stuff much faster than a jar of the creamy stuff. And I’m afraid I would go through a 12-ounce jar of Planters NUT-rition in a week because not only are there peanuts mixed in, there are also things like raisins, granola, peanuts, and banana chips. Option Pitch and Waffle Crisp reviewed one of the flavors.

Chocolate Cream of Wheat 002

Cream of Wheat has been around for over 100 years and only now they come out with a chocolate flavor. Geez, Cream of Wheat has been making people suffer throughout bowls and bowls of regular Cream of Wheat for a very, very long time. Thanks for the photo, Bobby!


Thanks, Hello Kitty, for this gummy treat shaped like your head that will ensure I get my vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D3, vitamin E, vitamin B6, folic acid, vitamin B12, biotin, pantothenic acid, iodine, zinc, choline, and meso-inositol.

If you’re out shopping and see a new product on the shelf (or really unusual), snap a picture of it, email it to us at [email protected] with “Spotted” in the subject line, and you might see it in our next Spotted on Shelves post.

    1. I was not impressed by the chocolate Cream of Wheat. On the other hand, I prepared it with water. Maybe it works better with milk? (Still a strange flavor combo, though. Cinnamon and brown sugar ftw.)

  1. omigoodness, in which store did you see the hello kitty gummy multivitamins? i’m adding that to my “buy in the US” list. i think i want that travel case more than anything. 😀

    1. That’s exactly what I was thinking. 🙂

      Sooner or later someone will probably try it…

      1. Same here! At first I literally thought to myself “what is Tide doing on The Impulsive Buy?”

  2. uh, hello new chocolate cream of wheat. there is a sassy lil lass out there by the name of coco wheats. quit trying to steal her swagger.
