SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 8/13/2014

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.

Kellogg's Limited Edition Thick & Fluffy Blueberry Cobbler Eggo Waffles

Leggo my Eggo! Oh wait, there are 35 more. You can keep that Eggo. (Spotted by Jamie at Sam’s Club.)

Banquet Double Meat Meals

These Banquet Double Meat Meals have twice the meat, but they cost ONLY $1.37. If Banquet also doubled the corn and mashed potatoes, they would probably still be under $1.50. (Spotted by jcal at Walmart.)

Pop-Secret Ready to Eat Popcorn

Pssst, Pop Secret. Want to know a secret? Orville Redenbacher’s glasses will let anyone see into the future. (Spotted by Kelly at Walmart.)

I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Garlic Spread

I’ve never purchased I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, so I would like to know if “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” takes up two lines on a store receipt. Or is it listed as, “ICBINB”? (Spotted by Garrison at ShopRite.)

Godiva Pecan Caramel Sundae and Caramel Nut Brownie Dessert Truffles

That looks so good! Not the candy in front. The dessert in the back. (Spotted by Ryan at Target.)

  1. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter showing up on the reciept as I CANT BUTT or something similar… I wonder if it’s garlic spread aimed at making garlic bread (like the Lowry’s product) or whether it’s more of a garlic ‘butter’ aimed at baked potatoes, etc.

  2. Just think about those Banquet meals for a second. Banquet has to make a profit on them. Wal-Mart has to make a profit on them. The suppliers of the product have to make a profit. And with all said, this mass of chemicals and entrails costs $1.37. This is truly terrifying to even grasp for me.

  3. I think Banquet allegedly meat meals accelerated my progress toward becoming vegetarian. My mother served them regularly. I think it was something called Salisbury (sp?) Steak that pushed me over the edge. I still cringe thinking of it, decades later. It looked like a hamburger without a bun on the package. It tasted like- I never figured that out.

    Their mac&cheese isn’t bad. It’s their meat that seems downright dangerous. Carnivores are brave people.

  4. Those Godiva layered chocolates have my name on them (No seriously I went to every Target and wrote my name on every package, look closer)
