Pace Fire Salsa

Looks like I can’t use “Pace” to describe things that are mild anymore. (Spotted by Esther at Walmart.)

Lunchables Kabobbles

Lunchables Kabobbles is a cute name. I would’ve gone with Lunchables Stabbies. And now you know why I don’t work in marketing…and can’t be trusted with knives. (Spotted by Amanda at Kroger.)

Quaker Sweet and Salty

I imagine Quaker Small Hard Bitter & Nasty bars would not sell well. (Spotted by Amanda at Kroger.)

Tyson Any'tizers Grillin' Wings Rotisserie Flavored

Tyson Any'tizers Grillin' Wings Smokehouse Flavored

Do you know what’s wrong with these Tyson Any’tizers Grillin’ Wings? There’s not enough apostrophes. How about Tyson Any’tizers Grillin’ Wings Smokehouse’s Flavor? (Spotted by Kassie at King Soopers.)

Thomas' Limited Edition Banana Bread Bagels

Banana bread English muffins. Banana bread bagels. Why not just make banana bread, Thomas’? (Spotted by Lindsay at Kroger.)

Pepperidge Farm Honey Bun Goldfish Grahams

This flavor seems weird to me because aren’t graham crackers made with honey? (I’m too lazy to look it up on Google and too lazy to combine water with a hot cocoa packet.) (Spotted by Claire G at Target.)

Sara Lee Cookie & Cream Original Cream Cheesecake

Never mind the foreground. Look at the background. I just want to pick up that Sara Lee Cookies & Creme Original Cream Cheesecake like a burger and take a bite out of it. (Spotted by Dubba at Stop & Shop.)

TruMoo Limited Edition Chocolate Marshmallow Lowfat Milk

Want the laziest way to make hot cocoa with marshmallows? Here you go, person too lazy to combine hot water (or milk) with a hot cocoa packet. (Spotted by Lindsay at Family Fare.)

Kellogg's Special K Moments Indulgent Snack Bites

If I want to spend an intimate moment with an indulgent snack, I guarantee it won’t have the name “Special K” on them. I also guarantee some of that indulgent snack will end up on my clothes because I’ll get too intimate with it. (Spotted by Paul at Acme.)

Tastykake Baked Pies Limited Edition Cherry Cheesecake and Chocolate Lover's

These two look a lot more appetizing than this previous Tastykake Limited Edition Baked Pie. (Spotted by Paul at Acme.)

Limited Edition Jelly Bean Trident Layers

If I want a chewy jelly bean-flavored thing, I’m pretty sure I’d eat jelly beans. (Spotted by Brittany at Target.)

Totino's Bold Limited Edition Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

I’d like to see Totino’s be really bold and make a Party Pizza topped with their Pizza Rolls or an end crust that’s just Pizza Rolls. You’re welcome for the idea, Totino’s. (Spotted by Tori B at Walmart.)

Great American Cookies

I’ve never seen a Great American Cookies store. Are they great cookies? Also, I’d like to mention they have stores in Saudia Arabia, but not here on this rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. (Spotted by David at Walmart.)

Red Vines Fruit Vines Bites

Bites, eh? I guess I won’t be using these as soda straws or tying them into knots in my mouth using just my tongue. (Spotted by Michael at Schnucks.)

Lucky Charms Limited Edition 50 Magical Years Cereal

Lucky Charms cereal has been around for 50 straight years, and this limited edition Lucky Charms cereal with green clovers has been around for two straight years. (Spotted by Mike at Giant.)

Welch's PB&J Snacks

What? Only now Welch’s realizes their jelly + peanut butter = profit! (Spotted by Dubba at Market Basket.)

Chex Mix Popped White Cheddar

Oh, what won’t you mix your Chex with in a Chex Mix, Chex. Junk Food Guy has a review.
(Spotted by Michael at Schnucks.)

Farm Rich Limited Special Edition Toasted Ravoli and Parmesan Encrusted Mozzarella Sticks

I guess what makes this special is that if you don’t care for one fried cheese-filled finger food, you can select another fried cheese-filled finger food. (Spotted by Claire G at Weis Markets.)

SirachaCandyCanes

I know. It’s the end of January and all of the Christmas stuff has long been sold off during a 90 percent clearance sale, but these Wonka candy canes have Pixy Stix powder in them. Drug cartels take note. (Spotted by Charity at World Market.)

Betty Crocker Chicken Helper BOLD

Last year, there was Ulitmate Chicken Helper. Now there’s Chicken Helper Bold. Are Extreme Chicken Helper, Chicken Helper Flavor Charged, Intense Chicken Helper, or Kickin’ Chicken Helper in our future? And yes, I borrowed some of those names from condoms. (Spotted by Kassie at King Soopers.)

SPOTTED ON SHELVES – General Mills Reese’s Puffs Treats

General Mills Reese's Puffs Treats

General Mills just made all the Reese’s Puffs Treat recipes on the internet unnecessary. BOOM! Also, General Mills, with all the Reese’s Puffs Treat recipes on the internet, why did you take so long to make your own? (Spotted by Nick at Price Chopper.)

Pepperidge Farm Limited Edition Lemon Chocolate Milano

Keepin’ it classy, Milano. No birthday cake or cookie dough flavors for you.(Spotted by Richard at Safeway.)

Smart Ones Fish and Chips

Smart Ones Chicken Strips

These Weight Watchers Smart Ones Fish & Chips have a fancy new crisping tray, but no old school malt vinegar packet. (Spotted by Amanda at Walmart.)

Campbell's Soup Pouches

I’ve always thought cans were convenient soup packaging. Well, they were convenient when they got pull tab tops. Soup cans that involve can openers are definitely not convenient. (Spotted by Troy A at Meijer.)

Lean Cuisine Greek-Style Chicken Salad Additions

With all the processed junk food I eat, I really should eat more processed salad. (Spotted by Marvo at Target.)

Bottled Kool-Aid

Oh yeah! No more accidentally inhaling Kool-Aid clouds that form after dumping Kool-Aid powder into a pitcher. (Spotted by Dubba at Walmart.)
