Dean's Sriracha Dip

Yeah, I don’t care about the buffalo ranch dip. That flavor has been overdone. I’m more interested in the sriracha one, which is a flavor that hasn’t been overdone yet…but is close. (Spotted by Emily at Pick N Save.)

Archer Farms Fruit Syrups

I think it’s pretty safe to say nutritionists will think this is one of the worst ways to consume fruit. (Spotted by Erin at Target.)

Quaker Warm & Crunchy Granola

Oh, Quaker. May thou never stop feeding us warm breakfasts. (Spotted by Charmi at Walmart.)

Del Monte FruitBurst Squeezers

I probably looked weird standing in the aisle and taking a panoramic photo of these Del Monte FruitBurst Squeezers. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

Limited Edition Honeycrisp Apple Slices

Hey! Remember when fruits were just “in season.” Now they’re “limited edition.” (Spotted by Joshua at Publix.)

Limited Edition Starbucks Dark Chocolate Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino

Starbucks Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino is back! To be honest, I didn’t know this existed until I received this photo. Bad junk food reviewer! Bad! (Spotted by Ariana at Westside Market.)

Limited Edition Duncan Hines Holiday Velvets

Green Velvet? Can Duncan Hines just invent a new velvet cake color like that? Well, I guess so. If that’s the case, I look forward to blue velvet cake sometime next year. (Spotted by Jennifer at Brookshire’s.)

Good & Delish Egg Nog Cream Cookies

I’m really surprised (and disappointed) egg nog-flavored products aren’t as prevalent as pumpkin spice products. (Spotted by Kitty at Walgreens.)

Limited Edition Old Orchard Apple Pie Juice

I’m not going to lie, apple pie juice sounds quite awesome. Too bad stores here don’t carry that brand. I guess I’m going to have to stick a plate of apple pie à la mode into a blender. (Spotted by Richard at Walmart.)

3 Musketeers Minis Hot Cocoa with Marshmallow

3 Musketeers Hot Cocoa Marshmallow Minis are back! And this time I knew they existed before receiving this photo because we already reviewed them. (Spotted by Lindsay at Meijer.)

Nestle Nesquik Strawberry Cookies

Remember these Nesquik sandwich cookies? Well, just like Nesquik chocolate powder mix, they have a strawberry cousin. (Spotted by Tom at Big Lots.)

Best Foods Limited Edition Sweet & Smoky Barbecue Flavored Mayonnaise

I just realized these limited edition flavored mayonnaises from Best Foods and Hellmann’s have reduced fat mayonnaise. Yeah, I’d want to mask the flavor of reduced fat mayonnaise too. (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

Stride Shaun White Golden Fruit Gum

Another Shaun White Stride Gum? Why can’t Swedish curler Anette Norberg, who has two Olympic gold medals, won seven European Curling Championships, and three World Curling Championship, have her own Stride Gum? (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

Campbell's Sweet & Sour Chicken Skillet Sauces

Campbell's Creamy Parmesan Chicken Skittle Sauces

When I first received these photos, I thought they were some of the old flavors, which we already covered. But it turns out they are new. So if you’re tired of the original six sauces, here’s two more you can eventually get tired of. (Spotted by Meral at Walmart.)

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Chocolate

Wild Ophelia makes these bars, so for them it’s not The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, it’s The Hunger Games: Catching a Ride on the Sweet Money Train of Blockbuster Movie Promotional Tie-Ins. (Spotted by Sylvia at Von’s.)

Collector's Edition Taylor Swift Diet Coke

I’m not looking forward to the day when Diet Coke decides to stop selling their Taylor Swift Collector’s Edition and Taylor Swift decides to write a song about it. (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Deliciously Simple
