SPOTTED ON SHELVES – Pepperidge Farm Coffee Shop Cinnamon Bun Cookies

Pepperidge Farm Coffee Shop Cinnamon Bun Cookies

I see a lot of Pepperidge Farm Coffee Shop scone flavors in our future. Also, now that Pepperidge Farm has a Dessert Shop and a Coffee Shop line, I wonder what’s next? Candy Shop? (Spotted by Dubba at Stop & Shop.)

GLOBAL GRUB – Dr. Oetker Big Americans Pizzas (Netherlands)

Dr. Oetker Big Americans Cheese Onion Pizza

I’m sure it’s not the case, but I can’t help but think the name “Big Americans” is some kind of joke. Oh well. Dr. Oetker is a German company that produces baking products, yogurts, pudding, and frozen pizzas.

Dr. Oetker’s Big Americans Pizzas come five American sounding flavors and one WTH flavor: Supreme, California, Hawaii, Texas, BBQ Chicken, and, what the hell, Cheese Onion. After a quick Google search, I learned the Big Americans line has been around since, at least, 2010. Also, during the same Google search, I learned the “Supreme” version appears to have corn on it and the “Texas” version seems to be a regular pepperoni pizza. (Thanks Anna for the photo!)

Night Time Cereal

They made limited edition nighttime packaging to encourage something I already do, which is eat sugary cereals before bedtime because I ran out of chips and ice cream. (Spotted by Dubba and Brian at Walmart.)

Kellogg's Rice Krispies Multi-Grain Shapes

Do these snap, crackle, and pop? Because, in the morning, when it’s quiet and calm, all I want to hear are birds chirping and my cereal reacting to the milk its sitting in. It’s the only thing that quiets the demons inside my head. (Spotted by Jaclyn at ShopRite.)

Old El Paso Microwaveable Bowls

Flour tortilla…meet Old El Paso Microwaveable Bowls. (Spotted by Emily at Pick N Save.)

Kid's Kitchen Instant Pudding (Orange Creme, Birthday Cake, Cookie Dough)

Kid's Kitchen Instant Pudding (Chocolate Peanut Butter, S'mores)

It’s nice to know our pudding technology has caught up with our Oreo technology. (Spotted by Erin at Walmart.)

GLOBAL GRUB – Kellogg’s Vector Meal Replacement (Canada)

Kellogg's Vector Meal Replacement

It looks like breakfast cereal, but Kellogg’s Canada calls it a “meal replacement.” Don’t believe me? Here’s its page on the Kellogg’s Canada website. Vector Breakfast Cereal Meal Replacement has been around for years in Canada and consists of crunchy flakes and granola clusters, and Kellogg’s considers it to be a meal replacement because a serving with milk proves 13 grams of protein, 54 grams of carbohydrates, and 22 vitamins and minerals. Vector also has a line of protein bars, but they don’t seem to be meal replacement bars. Well, I guess if one eats enough of them, they could be a meal replacement.

SPOTTED ON SHELVES – General Mills Cheerios Protein Cereal

General Mills Cheerios Protein Cereal

A serving of Cheerios Protein with milk has 11 grams of protein, but if your inconsiderate roommate drank all the milk and put the empty carton back in the fridge, you can still get 7 grams of protein, which should still be enough protein to build some muscle to kick some manners into your dumbass roommate. The new variety will come in two flavors, Cinnamon Almond and Oats & Honey. (Spotted by Dan at Meijer.)
