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.
Ben & Jerry’s Key Lime Pie ice cream is back, baby! Let’s celebrate with cake…and only cake. It’s a limited batch, so I suggest you buy a second freezer and fill it with nothing but pints of it. That should last you until it comes back again. You can read Ben & Jerry’s Key Lime Pie ice cream reviews here, here, here, here, and here.
There’s microwaveable mac and cheese in a cup so it makes sense to have microwaveable mashed potatoes in a cup. I could’ve sworn Stove Top made microwaveable stuffing in a cup, but, now that I think about it, I could’ve dreamt about that during my post-Thankgiving nap. Too bad because it would’ve completed the side dish trifecta.
Speaking of mac and cheese, I didn’t know Betty Crocker made mac and cheese. I wonder if it’s as radioactive orange as Kraft mac and cheese. Betty Crocker Mac and Cheese comes in three cheesy varieties: original, grilled cheese, and cheese pizza. (Thanks for the photo, Jada!)
Hormel, you are the king of microwaveable shelf-stable products. You have your Compleats, SPAM meals, and your new Sandwich Makers, which is available in Meatballs in Marinara Sauce, Chicken with Barbecue Sauce, and Seasoned Pork with Barbecue Sauce. Wait…no SPAM in barbecue sauce, Hormel? I know you have the technology and trademarks to make that happen, so make it happen. (Thanks for the photos, ED Junkie and Andrew!)
What the hell, Canada!? You folks have ketchup chips AND these Sour Cream ‘N Bacon Ruffles. It’s not fair. Not fair at all. (Thanks for the photo, Jonas!)
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with “Spotted” in the subject line, and you might see it in our next Spotted on Shelves post.
