I'd like my frontpage to display a list of my lastest blog posts merged with my latest "Products" custom post type posts.

From the documentation i gather this should work:

query_posts( array('post_type' => array('post', 'product') ) );
while (have_posts()) : the_post();

But that turns a weird list, made of pages !

Note that I've put it outside the loop.

What am i doing wrong?

I would use a new WP_Query. Using query_posts is intended for the main loop only.

When should you use WP_Query vs query_posts() vs get_posts()?
