SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 10/10/2012

Here are some new products found on store shelves by us and your fellow readers. We may or may not review them, but we’d like to let you know what new items are popping up. We’ll also occasionally throw in an unusual product.

Herr's Deep Dish Pizza

We don’t have Herr’s snacks here on this rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, but I hear they’re really good at replicating junk food flavors in their junk food. If only these Herr’s Deep Dish Pizza Flavored Cheese Curls could imitate the messiness of a deep dish pizza, forcing me to eat them with a fork. Dave’s Cupboard reviewed these cheese curls. (Thanks for the photos, Adam!)

Fun da-middles Cookies and Cream

Betty Crocker has a new Fun Da-Middles flavor for me to not bake. (Thanks for the photos, Kenneth!)

Prego Bacon & Provolone

Ugh. Enough with the provolone. It’s in our sandwiches and lasagnas. And it’s on top of our pizzas and salads. I’m getting sick of seeing provolone everywhere. Let’s stop with our fascination with provolone. (Thanks for the photos, Lauren!)

Confetti Cupcake Pop-Tarts

I’ll bet you a box of Pop-Tarts that these new Confetti Cupcake Pop-Tarts taste exactly like these Confetti Cake Pop-Tarts.

Coppertone Sport Duraflex

Maybe it’s just me, but Duraflex really sounds more like a condom feature than a spray-on sunscreen feature.

SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 10/8/2012

It’s another holiday themed Spotted on Shelves this week. Here are some pumpkin-y (new and old) products found on store shelves. We may or may not review them, but we’d like to let you know what items are popping up.

Betty Crocker Pumpkin Spice Cookie Mix

The more pumpkin spice product photos we post this year means less pumpkin spice product photos we’ll post next year. And I think we’ve featured a lot of them. Just kidding. I really believe we’ve only covered a fraction of the pumpkin spice products available. There are probably over a dozen pumpkin spice cookies alone. (Tualumba for the photo, Kenneth!)

Pumpkin Spice Eggnog

Hey! Do you know what would be awesome to dunk those pumpkin spice cookies into? Yup, some old fashioned pumpkin spice egg nog. (Mauruuru for the photo, Andrew!)

Hostess GloBalls

Hostess ScaryCakes

Those ScaryCakes don’t look so scary. Oh wait, I haven’t read the nutrition facts yet. (Dhanyavadalu for the pics, Mike!)

Tastykake Jack-o-Lantern Juniors

Great for Trick or Treating? More like a great way for kids to know which candy-less house to avoid next year. (Merci for the picture, Mike!)

SpookyLicious Pop-Tarts

I think Kellogg’s should retire their Spookylicious Frosted Chocolate Fudge Pop-Tarts and replace it with Eerielicious Frosted Chocolate Fudge Pop-Tarts. (Tashakor for the photo, Mike!)

NEWS: Jelly Belly and Tabasco Team Up To Make Sweet and Spicy Jelly Beans

TABASCO

Jelly Belly, the company that makes jelly beans in flavors that your heart does and doesn’t desire, has teamed up with Tabasco to produce sweet and spicy jelly beans.

The new jelly bean flavor uses genuine Tabasco seasoning, giving them the flavor and kick Tabasco lovers will enjoy. It will also give those who get off on eating Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans a new weird flavor to try.

Jelly Belly’s Tabasco Jelly Belly beans are currently available in bulk, in case you wanted to burn your mouth for hours by chain eating them. A webpage to order 3.1-ounce bags is up on the company’s online store, but according to the Drugstore News story, Jelly Belly won’t release the Tabasco flavor in the smaller bags until December.

Do you think Tabasco-flavored jelly beans are weird? Let us know in the comments.

SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 10/4/2012

Here are some new products found on store shelves by us and your fellow readers. We may or may not review them, but we’d like to let you know what new items are popping up. We’ll also occasionally throw in an unusual product.

Tastykake Kandy Bar Kakes 1

Tastykake Kandy Bar Kakes 2

These Tastykake Kandy Bar Kakes look skrumptious and delektable. It sukks I kan’t konsume them bekause the Tastykake kompany doesn’t sell their produkts here on this rokk. I am driving my spellchekk krazy. (Sukriya for the photo, Adam!)

Cool Whip Frosting

Do you know what I like about Cool Whip? It comes in a tub that’s easy to eat out of, and Kraft’s new Cool Whips Frosting also come in a container that’s easy to eat out of. It looks like my cakes will be naked. Cool Whip Frosting comes in three flavors — Chocolate, Cream Cheese, and Vanilla. (Salamat for the photo, Adam!)

Limited Edition Marshmallow Pebbles

I’ve mentioned several times on this blog that I have a thing for redheads and I believe it all started because of Wilma Flintstone. Because of my love for redheads, I’m probably going to buy a box of Limited Edition Marshmallow Pebbles, which don’t appear to be any different than the old Marshmallow Pebbles and is only a limited edition because Wilma is on the front.

Werther's Originals Caramel Specialties

If Werther’s Original’s specialty is caramel (yup, double apostrophe S’s), then what’s so special about these Werther’s Original Caramel Specialties. Along with the Caramel, CaraMelts, and Toffee Crunch varieties, there’s also a Milk Chocolate version of these Werther’s Original Caramel Specialties. The Snackpot reviewed the Toffee Crunch flavor. (Gracias for the photo, Kenneth!)

Nice Bacon Jerky

Bacon jerky! Nice! Natural smoke flavor added! Nice! Non-edible silica moisture absorber! Nice! It’s like Beggin’ Strips for humans! Nice! (Mahalo for the pic, Scott!)

It’s another holiday themed Spotted on Shelves this week. Here are some pumpkin-y (new and old) products found on store shelves. We may or may not review them, but we’d like to let you know what items are popping up.

Planters Pumpkin Spice Almonds

These nuts gave me a great idea for David’s pumpkin seeds — Pumpkin Spice Pumpkin Seeds. You’re welcome, David Seeds! (Thanks for the photo, Adam!)

Pepperidge Farm Swirl Bread

Pepperidge Farm Swirl Bread 2

If Pepperidge Farm has Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice and Caramel Apple bread, I wonder if they also have Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice and Caramel Apple cookies. (Thanks for the photos, Adam and Nadirah!)

Pepperidge Farm Pumpkin Cheesecake

IMAG0772

Why yes, they do have Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice and Caramel Apple cookies. (Thanks for the photo, Richard and Kenneth!)

Dunkin Donuts Holiday Flavors

America can run on festive-flavored coffee. (Thanks for the photo, Kenneth!)

Limited Edition Pop-Tarts

We’ve already reviewed the awesome Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts, which I’ve purchased every year since they’ve been available. I have yet to try Marshmallow Hot Chocolate Pop-Tarts, but I’m glad they don’t have creepy pictures on them like Gingerbread Pop-Tarts. (Thanks for the photo, Kenneth!
