Here are some interesting new and limited edition products found on store shelves by us and your fellow readers. If you’ve tried any of the products, share your thoughts about them in the comments.

Häagen-Dazs Limited Edition Peanut Butter Pie

I love peanut butter, so I’m 99.99 percent sure I’m going to enjoy Häagen-Dazs’ Peanut Butter Pie ice cream. I love peanut butter so much that if you scratch and then sniff me, I’ll smell like peanut butter. The Ice Cream Informant has a review. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

Post Limited Edition Fruity Pebbles with Rockin' Xtreme Colors

Bamm! Bamm! Limited Edition Fruity Pebbles that probably tastes exactly like regular Fruity Pebbles. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

Stouffer's Grandma's Chicken & Vegetable Rice Bake

I hope the recipe for Stouffer’s Grandma’s Chicken & Vegetable Rice Bake isn’t my grandma’s because we buried it with her. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

Knorr Potato Sides Mashed Potatoes with Chicken Flavored Gravy

Knorr has pasta, rice, and now potato sides. So if I ever want to do the opposite of an Atkins diet, I can turn to Knorr for all my starchy carbohydrate needs. (Spotted by Shannon at Walmart.)

Hormel Chili Cook-Off

I wonder if chili cook-off contestants look at these and say to themselves, “Really?” And then walk away laughing. (Spotted by Lauren at Walmart.)

  1. I’m not sure why they are saying that chicken bake is new. I have been eating it for years. The exact same thing, even the name.

  2. The white chicken chili isn’t bad. It has a peel back top in case you need to open it on the move and can’t cook.
    The peanut butter icecream would be awesome if it has chocolate graham cracker crumbles with it.

    1. We’ve had those in Canada for at least 10 years! They’re so bad, but so good… Especially the gravy. Mmmm, tastes like college.

  3. Just found, bought and tried the Peanut Butter Pie ice cream and am in the process of my own review for it. Even with the chocolate cookie pieces, it’s all about the peanut butter, so much so that anything that isn’t peanut butter is all but irrelevant.

    1. I agree, there are chocolate cookies EVERYWHERE, but the flavor you get from them doesn’t seem proportional to the number of pieces. I was eating big piles of peanut butter from mine! Still, I think Ben & Jerry’s What A Cluster was more peanut buttery.

      (My review is also in progress, hoping to post it tonight!)
