I thought this would be a fun thread to start.

It can be anything fresh, frozen, jarred, canned, spices .. whatever - as long as it's
something you consume in one way or another.

I finally found the yogurt that Peeps has been having for breakfast (thanks Peeps, just had it for dinner. Love it!)

And this Bertolli pasta sauce.

I was looking for Victoria that Jimmy used but they were out?

Let's have fun with this!

I love the Victoria Vodka sauce. I was buying it at Walmart for a long time, but they quit stocking it. I think it's restaurant quality.
I can find it on Amazon, but you have to buy a bunch of it...too pricey for me.

I recently tried the cauliflower tots that Q-Sis recommended. I really liked those.

These are new to me and really good too:
Frito Lay Munchies Snack Mix Cheese Fix, in single serve packets
They're a mixture of Doritos, Cheetos, Sun chips, and Rold Gold pretzels.

The Victoria sauce space was there with the pricey tab on the shelf, they were just out for now, so I settled for the Bertolli because I believe it's newer.

I just remembered something else. My Walmart grocery pickup is very good about giving out goodie bags with all kinds of samples and coupons. Last time I picked up groceries, I received a goodie bag with some free samples of Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce k-cups. Those k-cups are fantastic. I thought I was going to buy a bunch of them. I really, really love them. But, oh my gosh are they pricey. I'll probably buy some for the holidays, but they won't be my regular k-cup for everyday.

There was a sample of bottled coconut water in there too. I thought that was pretty gross, just way too sweet for me. It might be good for young kids who don't need a lot of sugar. Young kids usually like sweet drinks.

I'm with you there on the coconut water, Cooksie.
It's just not my thing, but I have friends who love it.
I'm a big K-cup user of all brands. I'll look for those in the stores.
I recently bought Eight O'Clock dark roast and loved it.
Right now I'm on Green Mountain dark.

Head Country Original is my favorite. Reminds me - have to order more HC rub and sauce.

That was one of the sauces that I really noticed.
I’m still learning about smoking and the thing I realized was - there are a TON of different rubs, and a TON of different sauces. Like all those beers at the liquor store. I just want a Miller. 😂 I think I’m gonna stick with head country. I have some Meat Church Holy something I have to try yet.

And this is another new hot sauce to me that I really love. Scorpion peppers and orange juice instead of water. Funny name but I love it. Serious heat.

I used the coconut water to make the Vietnamese Caramel Fish recipe from Milk Street. It was so good. I agree it was too sweet by itself.

Two more:

Lipton Green Tea Oange Passionfutit Jasmine tea bags. I really like these. I've only used them for hot tea but will be trying them for iced tea too.

Bigelow Chamomile Vanilla and Honey Herbal Tea bags....did not like at all :(.

Then this.
Birds Eye have a new line of side dishes, one other I noticed was a broccoli bake and a buffalo or bbq cauliflower "wing" dish.

I'll be making this as a side with a nice steak in the near future.

The Creamy Spinach Bake looks like something I'd really like.

Something I had in a freebie goodie bag from WalMart...Dried Cranberries and Candied Pecans. I added them to some muffin mix, really good. I've been on a muffin kick lately.
