If I accidentally ran over one of these bags with my car or dropped an anvil on them, it would instantly turn into an ice cream topping. (Spotted by Michelle at Target.)

At a quick glance, the lemons in the background make the packaging look like it’s a mutated corn on the cob. (Spotted by Debra at Stop & Shop.)

“Jumbo peanuts” sound like an oxymoron. (Spotted by Robbie at 7-Eleven.)

  1. How frequently does Oreo do a Double Stuf for anything other than normal vanilla filling? I can’t think of any examples off the top of my head.

    1. I don’t think they ever have.. I could be wrong, but I know they had “Double Stuf” and then recently went with “Mega Stuf”

  2. The mint chocolate chip snack bites from Target are amazing!!! I got a couple of the other favors but haven’t tried them yet

  3. Those Archer Farm cookies look awesome..if it were me and I found those, I’d “accidentally” trip so a package (or 4) would fall into my cart.

  4. Target has upped their game a bit! I like the clear packaging and being able to see the actual product.

    Is lemon the new salted caramel or red velvet? My Giant and Food Lion both have large displays of lemony products. Maybe it’s a summer thing.

  5. I bought a pack of the “jumbo peanuts”, and they are in fact very big. Biggest peanuts I’ve ever seen! I don’t like the flavor much though. I got the bacon cheddar kind, and it only has that odd fake smoke flavor, no cheese at all. I wouldn’t bother buying them again.

  6. The Archer Farms snack bites are SO GOOD! I’ve had Mint Chocolate Cookie and Monster Mix Cookie. Both AMAZING! 🙂

  7. I had a horrible experience with the Sea Salt Caramel Cookie ones. My daughter just 12 years old sampled one on Sunday, 7/23/15 while the Archer Farm Rep was handing them out. My daughter who has NEVER had any allergic reaction had a true analphylatic reaction. Within two minutes of eating the cookie her throat was burning her and it felt like sand paper. I kept offering her water thinking the cookie bite may have gone down the wrong pipe. When she said she was having trouble breathhing and her throat was tightening we ran out of target and went stratight to the ER. Before they could even give her epidnephrine more events occured, swollen eyes, itchy beyond words and severe intestinal pain. Within 20 minutes of her receiving the IV her symptons became less and less severe. I am grateful that my daughter is okay and we now are working with allergists to see what ingredient(s) she may be allergic too but since we have never experienced anything like this nor have my two other children I wanted to post this to inform anyone purchasing this product to beware. The title reads Sea Salt Caramel BUT the ingredient that we think may have triggered this reaction is Cashews. It is still too soon to tell but if you have a nut allergy STAY AWAY from this product.
