Here are some new and limited edition 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.
Campbell’s Skillet Sauces come in six flavors: Creamy Chipotle, Scampi, Fire Roasted Tomato, Thai Green Curry, Toasted Sesame, and Marsala. And with these sauces it’s super easy to trick someone into thinking you have culinary skills. Just heat oil, then heat meat and/or veggies, then stir in the sauce, let the meat and veggies cook, throw away the Campbell’s Skillet Sauces packet into a neighbor’s garbage can, and then shred the store receipt with the Campbell’s Skillet Sauce listed on it. Evidence gone. (Spotted at Target.)
Campbell’s Chunky Soup is the “soup that eats like a meal.” But for this particular flavor, I think they should change it to say, “soup that eats like an appetizer at an establishment more known for their scantily clad employees than their food.” But I don’t think a graphic designer could nicely fit all of that on the label. By the way, Dude Foods reviewed it. (Spotted at Target.)
I remember when Limited Edition Ice Cream Oreo Cookies n’ Creme was Limited Edition Oreo DQ Blizzard Creme way back in 2010. (Spotted at Walmart. Spotted by Adam.)
Yeah! Culinary cheating! I’m gonna cheat my way to the Masterchef title! (Spotted at Food Lion. Spotted by Nadirah.)
Microwaveable popcorn that pops in a box. I want a company to make microwaveable popcorn that pops in gigantic tubs and charges me $10 for it, just like the movie theaters do. (Spotted at HEB. Spotted by Tabetha.)
