Jif Whips

I’m not 100 percent sure about this, and I’m too lazy to Google it, but didn’t Jif once offer whipped peanut butter prior to these Jif Whips. Also, I’m not sure if it’s the product itself or the word “whips”, but I’m kind of excited about Jif Whips. (Spotted by Jamie at Walmart.)

Jif Cashew Butter

Jif Almond Butter

Jif Cashew Butter AND Jif Almond Butter? It appears Jif has been really busy with their nuts. (Spotted by Kayla at Walmart.)

Tastykake Cinnamon Rolls

“Welcome to the 20th century, Tastykake!” said Cinnabon. (Spotted by Adam at Walmart.)

Honey Maid Teddy Grahams Strawberry Banana and Apple

Honey Maid Teddy Grahams made with real fruit? How about making Teddy Grahams made with real teddies so I squeeze them and then eat them. (Spotted by Deanna at Walmart.)

Archer Farms Chocolate & Strawberry Dessert Flatbread

Hey, Archer Farms! Don’t you mean Chocolate & Strawberry Dessert Pizza? (Spotted by Andy at Target.)

Jolly Time Butter made with Smart Balance

One popped cup of this Jolly Time Butter made with Smart Balance popcorn has one gram of saturated fat. So if a bag has about ten popped cups, I shouldn’t be eating half the bag, which I already did. So I just consumed about 25 percent of my daily recommended amount of saturated fat. I am not smart. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

Archer Farms Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee

Without the need to make a hard sugar crust on top with a blowtorch, this coffee sound boring. Unless…I use the blowtorch to heat up the coffee. Or never mind the coffee and I’ll just blowtorch some sugar. (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

Kraft Jet-Puffed S'moreMallows

Flat marshmallow? Yup. Limited time only? Sure. New? Not so much. (Spotted by Nadirah at Walmart.)

M&M's Milk Chocolate Bar

These sound so M-Azing. Candy Blog has a review. (Spotted by Cara at Target.)

Snickers & Milky Way Unwrapped Bites

Do you have issues with portion control? Then don’t buy these. (Spotted by Matthew at Walmart.)

Arizona Chocolate Fudge Float

AriZona Beverages has a new and improved Chocolate Fudge Float Soda. To be honest, I didn’t know they had a chocolate soda. I also didn’t know AriZona Beverages is a New York company. (Spotted by Ross at 7-Eleven.)

7 Layer Dip Tortilla Combos

The Combos Baked Snacks 7 Layer Dip Tortilla is made with cheddar cheese, sour cream, avocado, tomato, refried beans, onion, and jalapeño peppers. But if I use a tortilla chip to pick them up, will they cause the chip to break, forcing me to dig through the Combos in order to fish out the part of the chip that snapped off? (Spotted by Lauren at CVS.)

Velveeta Toppers

These Velveeta Toppers are the perfect thing to top a block of Velveeta. (Spotted by Kelly at Walmart.)

Kit Kat minis

Just in time for summer! Instead of having a small melted mess with a regular-sized Kit Kat bar, I can now have a huge melted mess with this. (Spotted by Kelley at Walmart.)

Exclusive Pepperidge Farm Dessert Shop Caramel Apple Pie

These have been around for a few months, but I didn’t know they were an exclusive. Well, if it’s going to be exclusive, I’m going to be exclusive too and not eat it. Two can play this game! (Spotted by Eric at Walmart.)

Hellmann's Limited Edition Southwestern Ranch Mayo

Hey, potato salad! Looks like you’re getting a spicy upgrade! Dude Foods reviewed it. (Spotted by Jerry at Met Food Supermarket.)

McGuinness Glazed Donut Blueberry Pancake

McGuinness also makes a whipped cream version, which, oddly, looks to be the most normal of the three. (Spotted by Eric at LBCO in Canada.)

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.

Limited Edition Strawberries 'n Creme Oreo

I wonder if these Limited Edition Strawberries ‘n Creme Oreo cookies will taste like these limited edition Oreo cookies from a few years ago. I also wonder why Nabisco hasn’t put out a Limited Edition Mega Stuf Triple Double Oreo yet. They have the technology! (Spotted by Adam at Walmart.)

Nice Coconut Water Instant Powder Packs

At a quick glance, these look like varieties of Walgreens Nice Boxed Coconut Water. But if you look closer they’re really Walgreens Nice Instant Coconut Water Powder. Nice! (Spotted by Justine at Walgreens.)

Fruit Gushers Flavor Mixers

Whenever I’ve had something that claims it gushes, it ends up oozing. And whenever I’ve had something that claims it oozes, it ends up all over my clothes. (Spotted by Stephen at Waldbaum’s.)

Velveeta Cheesy Casseroles Dinner Kit Shepherd's Pie

I really wish there was a four-fingered anthropomorphic glove that can help me make this. (Spotted by Lauren at Publix.)

Hot Pockets Limited Edition Spicy Beef Nacho

No tortilla chips inside these Limited Edition Spicy Beef Nacho Hot Pockets? That’s not mine and, probably, nacho idea of nachos. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

Philadelphia Caramel Snack Delights

I could dip fruits and graham crackers into a tub of Philadelphia Snack Delights. Or I could just dip a spoon into the tub and not have to deal with those annoying fruits and crackers. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

Cracker Jack'D

Cracker Jack'D Salted Caramel

Holy crap! There sure are a lot of Cracker Jack’D varieties. I guess that could help explain why Sailor Jack and Bingo look so pudgy on the packaging. (Spotted by Joshua at Pilot.)

Monster Muscle Energy Shake

Hey! Look! A way to build muscle and increase my heart rate without steroids. (Spotted by Andrew at Wawa.)
