Yup, it’s a Canadian version of Spotted on Shelves. Here are some new and limited edition products found on Canadian store shelves by TIB reader Darren. All products were spotted at his local Calgary Co-op.
Holy Canadians! They’re only now getting Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop-Tarts! If I knew they didn’t have them earlier and lived near the US-Canada border, I would’ve smuggled them into the country and traded them for cheap generic Canadian pharmaceuticals or maple syrup. But now that Canada has them, that plan goes out the window.
I’ve seen these for several years in the US and I imagine they’ve also been in Canada for a while. They keep coming back, so people must like them. But me, I don’t think they’re anything special. Here’s a review from Junk Food Guy. Or if you want a review from a Canadian, here’s one.
Cans are so 2000-and-late. It’s all about boxes, baby. Along with this beef stock, there are also chicken and cream stocks to allow Canadian to use their culinary creativity or follow the recipes on Campbell’s Canadian website. They contain no additional colours or flavours. They also sound better than bouillon cubes.
Along with the Classic Dark Chocolate you see above, these Ahoy! Extras are also available in Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter and Roasted Almond and Chocolate. They appear to be pudgy little cookies with their respective “extras” baked in. I could see myself accidentally eating a bag of these in one sitting. Or “accidentally” stealing it from someone else.
Hey, international TIB readers!
