He also advised that there are usually a lot of these “seasonal items” in the baking section.

These are the ones to look out for as even the staff don’t know how long this item will be on the shelves and how many they will be stocking, so if you see something you like, act fast.
Matthew said: “This is the number one question I get: ‘Are you going to get those back in?’ The short answer: ‘No.’
“There’s no way to order these items, no way to tell how many we’ll get, or if we’re going to get them at all. They just kinda show up.”
The “D” on some signs
Some of the signs have a number on followed by the letter D, and this indicates that the item arrived in the shop frozen.
Matthew said: “The number signifies how many days it’s good for once we thaw it.
“So, if you’re ever looking for the newest or the freshest, you can keep that in mind.”
