SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 8/15/2013

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.

Taco Bell Chocolate Taco Dessert Kit and Cinnamon Nachos Dessert Kit.

Taco Bell doesn’t offer ChocoTacos anymore, but they’re now giving you some of the ingredients to make your own dessert taco at home with their Chocolate Taco Dessert Kit. Just bring the ice cream, whipped cream, and shame, and Taco Bell provides the rest. (Spotted by Leah at Walmart.)

ElMonterey Shell Shockers Jalapeno Ranch

ElMonterey Shell Shockers Nacho Cheese

It is shocking that El Monterey decided to put the flavor on the outside of their Shell Shockers. It’ll also be shocking when I secretly wipe off all the flavor if someone brings this to a party. (Spotted by Richard at Walmart.)

Starburst Minis

I wonder how many of these Starburst Minis will fit into a mouth. I could figure it out on my own, or just wait for someone on YouTube to find out. (Spotted by Sara at Target.)

Totino's Bold Jalapeno Popper and Buffalo Style Chicken Rolls

As I stare at these Totino’s Bold Rolls bags, that come in overused flavors, I can’t help but think that the only thing “bold” about them is the font they used on the bags. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

  1. So Taco Bell are really just providing us with the chocolate taco shell, since anyone could use their chocolate syrup and sprinkles of choice, in addition to their ice cream and whipped cream of choice.

    And I wonder if those unwrapped Starburst bags will be melded together as frequently as Milk Duds are.

  2. these should be added to the Taco Bell menu not those lame Cinnamon twists and cookie sandwiches. they fit with the rest of the menu.

  3. Saw these on the shelf and had to buy them. I set my standards way to high for this product. It comes with 6 chocolate shells, a pouch of sprinkles and a pouch of chocolate sauce. My 6 year old was super excited while making his, until he tasted it. The chocolate shell didn’t taste chocolately, but of regular corn taco shell with a chalky flavor. He was less than thrilled. Save your money folks, buy ice cream cones instead.
