J&D's Ghost Pepper Nacho Popcorn

I’m just going to proclaim 2014 as the Year of Ghost Peppers. Sure, there haven’t been THAT many ghost pepper products so far and we’re already halfway through 2014, but I’m going to keep saying it until it becomes true…or until it’s 2015. Whichever comes first. Chip Review got their hands on the Ghost Pepper Nacho ones. (Spotted by Dustin at World Market.)

Cherry Fanta Bottle

Last year, you had to go to another country or be fortunate enough to live near a restaurant with a Coke Freestyle machine to taste Fanta Cherry. This year, you no longer have to worry about plane rides or pushing buttons in order to get it. (Spotted by Aaron at Walmart.)

PowerIce copy

PowerIce

PowerIce has new flavors! Grape Score and Pomegranate Raspberry Rip! Let’s celebrate with exclamations points!!! And let’s celebrate Gatorade probably coming up with something similar in the near future…with exclamation points!!! (Spotted by Sylvia at Sprouts.)

Nestle Abuelita Mexican Chocolate Style Coffee-mate

I wonder what other little-known Nestle products will the company turn into Coffee-mate flavors. Carlos V? Kazoozles? Frosty Paws? (Spotted by Elizabeth at Walmart.)

Prairie Farms Cupcake Classics (Very Vanilla, Chocolate Truffle, and Strawberry Banana)

I’m a little disappointed with your Cupcake Classics, Prairie Farms. I was hoping you’d somehow top jellybean milk. (Spotted by Alex at Walmart.)

Tastykake Limited Edition Baked Pies (Key Lime Pie, Banana Split, and Orange Kream-cicle)

Tastykake Summer Exclusive Orange Juniors

If you’re into limited edition Tastykake porn, here you go! Although, I now realize it’s not so porny with them still in the packages. (Spotted by Paul at Acme and Erin at Giant.)

Thomas' Limited Edition Apple Pie English Muffins

Dear Thomas’: It’s hard to keep track of whether you’ve done either a limited edition bagel or English muffin version of flavors, so I made a Flickr album to help. So I’m ready for whatever bagel or English muffins you unleash. (Spotted by Erin at Giant.)

Larry the Cable Guy Biscuits & Gravy Tater Chips

I wonder if Larry the Cable Guy eats Larry the Cable Guy Tater Chips, and if so, does he feel weird eating them? Does he look down at the bag, see himself looking back at him, grin, and think, “I’ve made it”? Does he eat them in front of a mirror with his Prilosec OTC commercial playing in the background on one TV and Mater’s Tall Tales being shown on another and think to himself, “I could probably fill a pool with money and swim in it”? Chip Review tried them. (Spotted by Charity at Rural King.)

I want to make these, but is my sweet tooth stronger than my laziness? (Spotted by Kelly at Redner’s.)

Some folks call Whataburger’s Honey Butter Sauce, “liquid gold.” I call Whataburger, “a restaurant I’ve never been to.” (Spotted by Javian at H-E-B.)

Progresso Presents Create a Meal Pasta

Dreyer's Limited Edition Slow Churned Fun'n the Sun Banana Split

I’ve had too many spilled ice cream cones and hands that were coated in melted ice cream while holding an ice cream cone to know that fun doesn’t always happen when ice cream and the sun come together. (Spotted by Christian at Stater Bros.)

Chef Boyardee Cups (Chicken Bacon Cheddar and Chicken Jalapeno Alfredo)

Great for snacking AND great for desperate times! (Spotted by Jarred at Walmart.)

Wrigley's Juicy Fruit Bubble Gum (Original and Sweet Strawberry)

I could buy these to make large bubbles or I could attempt to stuff an entire pack of regular Juicy Fruit gum into my mouth. (Spotted by John at Speedway.)
