Here are some holiday 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 items are popping up.


SoCo Egg Nog is yummy, but it doesn’t have alcohol. However, if you’ve got a bottle of SoCo around, you can easily add an ounce…or two…or three…or skip the egg nog altogether and just drink the SoCo. (Spotted at Walmart. Thanks for the photo, Kenneth!)


Yup, it’s that time of year when Dreyer’s/Edy’s Limited Edition Pumpkin, Peppermint, and Egg Nog ice creams start showing up in the frozen food aisle to help ensure you gain weight during the holidays. (Spotted at Target. Thanks for the pic, Kenneth!)


If the holidays get depressing for me, I may just dunk my face into one of these bad boys and eat it sans utensils. (Spotted at Walmart. Thanks for the pic, Kenneth!)

Limited Edition Tootsie Roll Vanilla Midgees

I think these show up during the fall/winter months because one can throw them up in the air and pretend they’re snowflakes. Oh wait, they’re bigger and more solid than snowflakes. Let me rephrase. One can throw them up in the air and pretend they’re hail. (Spotted at Walmart. Thanks for the pic, Kenneth!)


Yay! Minty s’mores! Yay! Minty hot chocolate you have to wait several minutes for because it’ll take awhile for the jumbo marshmallow to melt away. (Spotted at Target.)

If you’re out shopping and see a holiday product on the shelf, snap a picture of it, and send us an email at [email protected] with where you found it and “Spotted” in the subject line. You might see your picture in our next Spotted on Shelves post.

  1. My husband bought the traditional eggnog (Southern Comfort) and thought it was quite good, though the expiration date is over a month from now so I’m guessing it’s chock full of tasty, tasty chemicals. 😉

    1. Actually, the increased shelf life for the eggnog is a result of high temperature processing, not preservatives.

      1. Funny thing is that I saw (and bought) a bottle of Evan Williams eggnog, which has alcohol and was refrigerated at the store I bought it. But even though I can’t find an expiration date on the bottle, I’ve read and found that their bottles are supposedly good for 7 months.

  2. Edy’s Pumpkin ice cream is fantastic! I bought one on a whim, along with some sugar cones, and the whole family loved it. It disappeared in a matter of 2 days, in a house that has long forgotten tubs of ice cream hidden deep in the freezer.
