Keep reading to see what you should add the next time you head over to the "check out" line (or button.)

Best New Way to Get a Pickle Fix

Grillo's Pickle de Gallo

This pickle and bell pepper condiment is a cross between salsa and relish: It’s as good on a hot dog as it is on a chip.

Blue Diamond Spicy Dill Pickle Almonds

These nuts are insanely addictive, thanks to a garlicky, dill pickle–flavored spice mix.

Vlasic Dill Pickle Slim Jims

These jumbo-size smoked pork, chicken and beef sticks have just a hint of pickle flavor.

Best New Crossover Soda

Dr Pepper’s first permanent spin-off in more than a decade tastes like the original with a touch of vanilla.

Best New Dessert Hybrid

If the hole in the middle of these ice cream bars doesn’t get the message across, the doughnut-inspired flavors will: They come in Boston cream, chocolate and frosted strawberry.

Best New Technicolor Snacks

Act II Llama Party Microwave Popcorn

This fun treat tastes like cotton candy — and pops up blue!

Snack Pack Mermaid Splashes

These tropical-flavored pudding cups bring the mermaid trend to lunch boxes.

Luigi’s Real Italian Ice Marshmallow

What color is marshmallow flavor? According to Luigi’s, it’s purple and blue!

Best New Ramen Shortcut

Making a big bowl of noodles is a lot easier when you start with this ginger tamari chicken broth.

Most Ingenious New Use of Food Scraps

Pipcorn Heirloom Crackers

These gluten-free crackers are made from corn flour left over from the company’s cheese puffs.

Rind Snacks

This dried fruit includes the peel and sometimes the seeds, so nothing goes to waste. It’s tasty, we promise!

Hottest New Snacks

Planters Blazin' Hot Heat Cheez Balls

These cheesy puffs are coated in a red dust that has a serious kick.

Ritz Crisp & Thins Seasoned with Tabasco

If you put hot sauce on everything, you’ll love these oven-baked chips.

Ruffles Lime and Jalapeno

The chile-lime flavor trend has finally made its way to Ruffles.

Best Candy Comeback

Fans of this ’90s Twix bar, which is filled with crunchy cookie bits, begged the company on Facebook to bring it back, and Mars Inc. obliged!

Smartest New Packaging for an Old Favorite

Skippy 6-Ounce Squeeze Pouch

It’s way easier to add peanut butter to sandwiches, celery and more with this handy pouch.

Jif Squeeze Peanut Butter

This package has nearly the same amount of peanut butter as your typical jar — no knife required!

Most Brilliant New Pizza Topping

Instagram has made curled-up “roni cups” super trendy. Now you can top homemade pies with them.

Most Festive New Coffee Accessory

If you want your morning to feel more like a party, this might do the trick. It’s a step up from vanilla-flavored creamer.

Most Exciting New Cauliflower Creations

Ortega Cauliflower & Corn Taco Shells

Add more veggies to taco night: These corn flour shells contain pureed cauliflower.

Original Cauliflower Breadsticks

You’d never guess that cauliflower is in these pillowy restaurant-style breadsticks.

Birds Eye Cauliflower Wings

These breaded florets taste just like wings — without the chicken!

Most Convincing New Fake Meat

These hyperrealistic vegan versions of ham, turkey and pepperoni are made with pea protein.

Dreamiest New Seltzer Flavor

Yes, everyone’s sick of talking about seltzer, but this is worth a mention: It’s inspired by the Italian lemon liqueur.

Most Exciting New Supersize Snacks

Reese’s Puffs Big Puffs

It’s the same chocolate peanut butter cereal — but three times bigger!

Kellogg’s Jumbo Snax

Forget the spoon. These giant versions of Apple Jacks, Corn Pops and more are designed to be eaten by hand.

Coolest New Vegan Snack

These ultra-crunchy bean and cassava flour snacks are based on the pork cracklins that the company’s CEO ate growing up in San Diego.

Coolest New Iced Tea

The leaves for this drink are brewed three times longer than usual, and at a colder temperature, so the drink tastes extra smooth.

Most Sophisticated New Pumpkin Spice Product

Pair this creamy cheese with crackers and dried fruit: It’s rubbed with pumpkin pie spices, cinnamon and honey for the perfect fall bite.

Best New Use of Oat Milk

We can’t seem to get enough oat milk these days, and now we can have it in the form of an ice pop!

Best New Restaurant-to-Grocery-Aisle Find

The chain combined two cult-favorite menu items to create this microwaveable meal.
