Hey, dozens of pumpkin spice flavored products released each fall! M&M’s wants to join the party. (Spotted by Richard at Target.)

Pop-Secret Sweet 'n Crunchy

If you ever go to prison, might I suggest you call yourself Sweet ‘n Crunchy, and explain your name like this, “If you’re nice to me, I’ll be sweet to you, but if you cross me, I’ll crunch all the bones in your face.” (Spotted by Julia at Giant Eagle.)

Duncan Heins Decadent

These Duncan Hines Decadent Cupcake Mixes come with a pastry bag. Oh yeah, Duncan Hines! Making your easy-to-make cupcake mixes a little harder. Now I can pretend I’m on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars. (Spotted by Sylvia at Vons.)

Del Monte Mango Pineapple Cups

Mango AND pineapple? It’s as if I walked into the farmer’s market up the street here on this rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. (Spotted by Marc at Wegmans.)

Pillsbury Grands! Homestyle Blueberry Biscuits

The internet tells me there used to be Pillsbury Grands! Blueberry Biscuits, so welcome back Pillsbury Grands! Blueberry Biscuits! But not everything on the internet is true, so nice to meet you Pillsbury Grands! Homestyle Blueberry Biscuits. (Spotted by Sara at Bi-Lo.)

Chef Boyardee Kickin' Sloppy Joe, Pizza Twist, and Cheeseburger Maxx

Captain Morgan Limited Edition Sherry Oak Finish Spiced Rum

Mmm…Sherry oak finish. (Spotted by Charmi at Walmart.)

Special K Maple Brown Sugar Crunch Nourish Cereal

You could start your day with a depressing, bland bowl of original Special K that makes your taste buds wish you were a millionaire because if you were a millionaire, you wouldn’t be eating original Special K, or you could eat a warm container of this Special K Nourish Maple Brown Sugar Crunch. (Spotted by Melissa at Walmart.)

Edy's Limited Edition Sunny Salted Caramel Pretzel

Edy's Limited Edition 3 Stripes You're Out

Dreyer’s/Edy’s have a football-related flavor, Touchdown Sundae, and they have this baseball-related 3 Stripes You’re Out. Is there a basketball flavor called Caramally Scoop or a peanut butter NASCAR flavor called Nuttin’ But Left Turns. (Spotted by Stefanie at Target.)

TGI Friday's Chicken Parmesan Chicken Sliders

TGI Friday's Loaded Fries and Nacho Toppers

TGI Friday's Dill Pickle Chips

The folks who make T.G.I. Friday’s frozen appetizers should team up with a toy company and create a play kit that comes with T.G.I. Friday’s uniforms and coupons for free T.G.I. Friday’s frozen appetizers so kids can play T.G.I. Friday’s instead of hide-and-seek. (Spotted by Richard at Walmart.)

Kraft Simply Low Fat Cottage Cheese

I didn’t know cottage cheese has been complicated all this time. (Spotted by Melissa at Walmart.)

Ghiradelli Mint Cookie and Toffee Crunch

Seriously, Ghiradelli? You’ve been making chocolate bars for years and only now you’ve come out with a Mint Cookie and Toffee Crunch. Also, seriously, Marvo? You’ve seen the word Ghiradelli for years, so how can you forget the second R in their name? (Spotted by Lauren at Target.)

El Monterey Steak & Cheese and Beef Steak Taquitos

Last week, we covered these new El Monterey products, and this week we’re covering their steak taquitos. It looks like El Monterey wants to be El Capitán of the frozen Mexican food sea. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

Steak-eze Philly Steak Bacon & Cheddar

Why must the packaging clarify “with cheddar cheese” separately when the name of the product has the word “cheddar” in it? It’s a bit weird, if you ask me. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

Velveeta Slices Jalapeno

Speaking of questionable cheese products… (Spotted by Melissa at Walmart.)

Safeway Kitchens Sucralose Liquid Sweetner

Safeway Kitchens Stevia and Monk Fruit Liquid Sweetners

Look at what you started MiO Liquid Water Enhancer! Today…liquid sweeteners. Tomorrow…liquid spices. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

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.)
