Chewy Chips Ahoy Sweet 'n Salty Salted Caramel Chunk

Instead of Chips Ahoy Sweet ‘n Salty with salted caramel chunks, I was hoping for Chips Ahoy Sweet ‘n Savory with ground beef chunks. (Spotted by Marvo at Walmart.)

Remember when Newtons Fruit Thins appeared somewhat wholesome? Well, that’s over. (Spotted by Marvo at Walmart.)

HARDCORE! Tangy Honey Mustard Ultimate Ruffles. HARDCORE! (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

Skippy Natural with Dark Chocolate

Damn skippy! Oh, no…I’m not amazed Skippy has a peanut spread with dark chocolate, I just like to write the same way your great grandpa talks. (Spotted by Deanna at Walmart.)

Betty Crocker Cotton Candy Cookie Mix and Frosting

If Betty Crocker’s first Target exclusive cookie mix and frosting flavor is cotton candy, I hope another fair food ends up as the second. Preferably, a deep fried fair food. (Spotted by Richard at Target.)

Jet-Puffed MallowBites Chocolate Brownie Marshmallows

I guarantee, as you’re reading this, there’s a baking blog owner somewhere who’s putting these Jet-Puffed MallowBites Chocolate Brownie Marshmallows into a brownie mix, taking photos of every step, and plans to post the photos and recipe on their blog tomorrow. (Spotted by Sara at Walmart.)

Chobani Flip

Chobani Key Lime Crumble Flip

According to Chobani, I’m supposed to flip for these new yogurts. Well, to be honest, it’s just yogurt with toppings, so it’s not that special to me. The only way I’d flip for Chobani Flip is if there was a liquid spill in front of the Chobani section of the dairy case. Oh wait. That wouldn’t be a flip; it would be a slip. (Spotted by Charmi at Target.)

Seattle's Best Coffee Frozen Coffee Blends

Yay! With these Seattle’s Best Coffee Frozen Coffee Blends, my blender will be able to taste something other than kale-infused smoothies. Also, the Seattle’s Best Coffee logo freaks me out. It looks like an eyeless Muppet trying to eat me. (Spotted by Charmi at Target.)

Keebler Special Edition Sweet Cremes

Keebler Special Edition Toasted Coconut

I hope the “special” in Keebler’s Special Edition cookies means dark elf magic was used. (Spotted by Sara at Walmart.)

Keebler Special Edition Iced Oatmeal

Keebler Special Edition Frosted Lemon

Special Edition? More like Mother’s Edition. Amiright! High-five with those of you who know cookie companies really well! (Spotted by Sara at Walmart.)

Special K has new flavors of Pastry Crisps, or as I like to call them when I put them on my chest, Pastie Crisps. (Spotted by Deanna at Walmart.)

Smucker's Pink Lemonade Magic Shell

Pink Lemonade Magic Shell sounds gross. Freezes in seconds? More like ruins ice cream quicker than the sun does. (Spotted by Paige at Target.)

Lance Chocolate Nekot Cookies

Why are they called Nekot cookies? According to the internets, Lance wanted to honor a retiring executive by naming the cookie Token. However, there was already a cookie named Token, so he just flipped the spelling around. Oh, that Lance was smart…or trams.(Spotted by Sara at Walmart.)

Dale Jr. Foods Creole & Green Onion Potato Chips

How weird it would be if Dale Jr.’s race car had Dale Jr. Foods as its main sponsor and the Number 88 car had a huge picture of his face on the hood and doors with a picture of his Dale Jr. Foods car which also has a picture of his face on the hood and doors? Chip Review has a chip review. (Spotted by Adam at Weis Markets.)
