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.)

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

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.)

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
