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.

Nestle Drumstick Limited Edition Peppermint Variety

If Nestle follows their Girl Scout candy bars and Nesquik milk with Girl Scout Drumsticks, I could see them renaming one of these flavors to Thin Mints. (Spotted by Amber at Walmart.)

International Delight Caramel Marshmallow

This International Delight coffee creamer makes me wonder what coffee would be like with mini marshmallows floating on top. (Spotted by Lindsay at Meijer.)

Dannon Oikos Caramel on Top Bananas Foster Greek Yogurt

Insert bananas + on top joke here. (Spotted by Richard at Walmart.)

Skinny Pop Limited Edition Hatch Chile Popcorn

I have no idea what a hatch chile is. If you’re in the same boat, let’s learn together. (Spotted by Lindsay at Kroger.)

Krusteaz Cobbler Topping and Crisp Topping

If a stranger on the street gave me a crisp topping on a peach cobbler and a cobbler topping on an apple crisp, I don’t think I would notice a difference because I wouldn’t eat food given to me by some random person on the street. (Spotted by Erin at Walmart.)

  1. I used to live in New Mexico and strings of dried Hatch chiles strung on twine are a big tourist item around Santa Fe. Hatch chiles are from NM and are only available fresh in August and September. They are a very mild green chile. In fact, , the Scoville heat rating for a typical Hatch chili is no more than 2,500, and often closer to 1,000, while a jalapeño is around 5,000, and a habanero pepper is more like 250,000. Once you get them home, you must roast and skin them, but for convenience, they are sold in all the markets throughout NM, normally chopped and frozen. Hatch chiles are grown exclusively in the Mesilla Valley just north of Las Cruces. They are yummy!

  2. If anyone is familiar with California’s Gold host Huell “that’s amazing!” Howser, he did an episode on Hatch chilies. Never had them myself, but I noticed several local Sprouts markets are roasting and selling them outside on weekends.

  3. Need to locate that creamer. I found (and purchased, and am halfway through) both the Pumpkin Pecan and Snickerdoodle creamers from Lucerne, but that’s not going to hold me over all season.

  4. The Drumsticks seem like a Christmas / Winter item. October 1st seems too early.

    Then again I did see Christmas decorations at Walmart last week!

  5. I purchased the creamer and was very disappointed. I used 2-3 servings in my 1 cup coffee and it tastes like nothing but a watered down vanilla flavor. It sucks. I rather use my Tornani sugar free syrups.
