Perhaps the Black Cherry Jello would’ve been a more appropriate flavor to use for Darth’s head. Although I understand the red since that’s the color of Darth’s lightsaber. Also, I know. I know. This should’ve been posted yesterday. (Spotted by Tracy at Woodman’s Markets.)

Smucker's Fruit Fulls (Pom Berry with Chia, Tropical Fusion with Oats, and Strawberry Vanilla with Chia)

I wonder if these would make an adequate jelly replacement in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. (Spotted by Nathan at H-E-B.)

I have to admit, the term “pub cheese” sounds like slang for dried up vomit outside of a bar. (Spotted by Carmen at Walmart.)

  1. The breadsticks are so delicious. Definitely no vomit…unless it’s next to you in a pool of depression as you eat your feelings in pub cheese breadsticks…’maybe then!

    1. They look good to me, too. Some of them are almost dairy free (just butter, and the Asian style seems completely dairy free) so they would be reasonably nonallergenic for me. A little heavy on the wheat (bulgar wheat), would prefer other grains. But these could be whole meals or at least a quick basis for one. Birdseye does have interesting blends in general.

  2. Dang! I seen these a few weeks ago but got scared and didn’t buy them. Now I wish I had. I bought Cole’s “french toast” instead — good, but at the same time, disappointing.

  3. Bet you could make a gluten free pb&j with the Smucker’s fruit fulls just by smearing them with peanut butter…..

  4. Just an FYI, the Smuckers Fruit Fulls are applesauce pouches (at least the apple and apple strawberry). But the new ones still say blended fruit on the packaging, so I would assume it’s the same runny consistency. It’s definitely not something I would recommend trying to make a sandwich with……On a side note, I’m totally tracking down that Star Wars jell-o mold set.

    1. Easy fix- just have a spoonful of peanut butter on the side… I do that with bananas and apples. Would work with anything applesauce-like also. Alternatively, squeeze out the fruit into a little bowl and mix with the peanut butter! That’s basically what the innards of a PB&J sandwich are anyway.
