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.)

Pillsbury Limited Edition Caramel Apple Toaster Strudel

Why is Pillsbury Caramel Apple Toaster Strudel a limited edition? It should be an Regular Edition, like it was years ago. (Spotted by Sara at Walmart.)

Old El Paso Mexican Cooking Sauce

Finally, Old El Paso is offering something other than their Old El Packets of powder seasonings. (Spotted by Ron at Walmart.)

Uncle Ben's Jasmine and Basmati Rice

It appears Uncle Ben has taken a trip to Asia. (Spotted by Blaire at ShopRite.)

Krusteaz Molten Deep Dish

Three easy steps to make these Krusteaz Molten Deep Dish Cookies? I’m pretty sure I’ll end up finding a way to make it hard for myself between steps one and two. (Spotted by Sylvia at Vons.)

California Pizza Kitchen Thai Style Chicken

There are CPK frozen Thai-style chicken and Hawaiian recipe pizzas, but where’s the California Pizza Kitchen California Pizza? (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

Pepperidge Farm Chocolate Chunk Cookie Cake

There’s a Milano cake and this Chocolate Chunk cake by Pepperidge Farm. I hope the next Pepperidge Farm cake is made with cheesy Goldfish. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

T.G.I. Friday's Limited Edition Honey Mustard Chicken Wings

Yawn. I mean, yum! No. I can’t lie. Yawn. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

Hidden Valley Pasta Salad

I think Hidden Valley should change their name to Hidden Vegetables because when I was young I’d use their dressing to drown my vegetables to make them not look like vegetables. (Spotted by Charmi at Walmart.)

Swanson Mexican Tortilla Flavor Infused Broth

Swanson Thai Ginger Flavor Infused Broth

Swanson Chinese Hot & Sour Flavor Infused Broth

I wonder how long a Mexican tortilla had to simmer in a pot in order to make this broth. (Spotted by Lindsay at Meijer.)

Kemp's Mini-sota Donut Ice Cream

Since 2011, Kemps Ice Cream has held an annual competition that gives Upper Midwesterners the chance to have their own ice cream flavor made. This is the 2012 winner. So in order to increase my chances of getting my very own ice cream flavor I have to either move to the Upper Midwest and try to win this competition or become a late night talk show host that Ben and Jerry enjoy watching.

Starburst Candy Corn

What a great idea! Combining a candy a lot of people love with another candy a lot of people hate to possibly create a candy that’s not so bad. (Spotted by Scott at Star Market.)

Kettle Brand Sweet & Salty Potato Chips

Sweet, salty, and Kettle Brand Chips? That is a ménage à trois my tongue would like to join to make it a foursome. (Spotted by Tammy at Fred Meyer.)

Nabisco Rice Thins

Hey Canada! Thought you were special because you had Rice Thins. Well, you are special no more! (Spotted by Michael at ShopRite.)

Campbell's Homestyle Chicken Noodle Soup

“The Taste That Takes You Home”? To be honest, the only chicken noodle soup I ate at home was Campbell’s condensed chicken noodle soup. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

Duff Zebra and Tie-Dye Premium Cake Mix

These cakes must be super trippy when you’re high. (Spotted by SH at Vons.)

Pillsbury Heat-N-Go Mini Waffles and Pancakes

Do you hit snooze several times each morning? Well, you could go to sleep earlier so you don’t have to hit snooze so many times and enjoy a proper breakfast. Or you could go to sleep at an unreasonable time, hit the snooze button several times, and run out the door with these Pillsbury Heat-N-Go Mini Waffles or Mini Pancakes. (Spotted by Dubba at Walmart.)

Banquet Morning Bakes

Or if you cut back the snooze button hitting to one or two, you could fit in the five minute preparation time for these Banquet Morning Bakes. (Spotted by Jarred at Walmart.)

Lipton Indulge Soothe Refresh Keurig K-Cups

These Lipton Tea K-Cup names could also be the names for body washes. (Spotted by Joshua at Target.)

Wrigley's 5 Focus Peppermint

Wrigley's 5 Focus Spearmint

Wrigley’s 5 Focus gum have a strong burst of mint when you first chew it. I don’t know. A strong cooling sensation in my mouth sounds more like a distraction to me. (Spotted by Conal at Wawa.)

V8 Complete Nutrition Bar

Screw eating regular meals! I’m going to live off of V8 Complete Nutrition Bars! And a few weeks from now I’m going to look damn hot on the outside…but super hungry on the inside. (Spotted by Melissa at Walgreens.)

Archer Farms Cupcake Mix 2

Archer Farms Cupcake Mix 1

To be honest, I’m only interested in knowing what that chai latte cupcake tastes like. Archer Farms should also try to make matcha green tea cupcakes. (Spotted by Richard at Target.)

NOS Active Energy Drink

Did you just finish a race and need to replenish your electrolytes, but don’t want your heart to stop beating at a fast rate? Well, NOS has a drink for you. (Spotted by Marvo at 7-Eleven.)

Brachs S'mores Candy Corn

So I guess this is what they do with all the leftover candy corn from Halloween. (Spotted by Meredith at Rite Aid.)
