Since releasing our 2014 supermarket list back in January, we've discovered some GREAT new products. These nine finds are among the very best! Add 'em to your grocery cart STAT...

 
 
Silk Original AlmondCoconut Blend
 
Silk Original AlmondCoconut Blend

1 cup: 50 calories, 3g fat, 170mg sodium, 5g carbs, 0g fiber, 5g sugars, <1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*

Ladies and gents, this beverage is a serious game changer in the milk-swap arena! It's so creamy and flavorful, we almost can't believe it has around half the calories of skim milk. Perfect for coffee drinks, shakes, cereal bowls, and more. We also want to give a quick shout-out to the somewhat-new Silk Protein+Fiber Almondmilk, since protein and fiber ROCK.

 
 
GoodFoods Tableside Greek Yogurt Guacamole

One 2.5-oz. container: 70 calories, 5g fat, 250mg sodium, 6g carbs, 2g fiber, 2g sugars, 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*

Guacamole is wonderful -- nobody's going to argue with that -- but it's so hard to stick to a single serving! And while healthy fats are fantastic, they add up fast when you plow through a bowl of guac. This yummy yogurt-avocado dip comes in individual tubs, perfect for portion control. Try it with baked tortilla chips for a low-key Cinco de Mayo celebration... Party of one!

All Natural Hi I'm Skinny Sticks
 
All Natural Hi I'm Skinny Sticks

1 oz. (about 34 sticks): 120 - 130 calories, 6 - 7g fat, 90 - 360mg sodium, 16 - 18g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber, 0 - 5g sugars, 1 - 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3 - 4*

Okay, the name is kind of silly. But these snacks are so good, they're worth braving the purchase of a product emblazoned with the words "Hi I'm Skinny." You get a LARGE serving of snack sticks that come in tasty flavors (hey there, Sweet Onion!), all for a totally reasonable calorie count. Click to find 'em, or just add to your virtual shopping cart.

 
 
Dreyer's/Edy's Outshine Fruit & Veggie Bars

1 bar: 60 calories, 0g fat, 0 - 25mg sodium, 14 - 16g carbs, 0 - 1g fiber, 13 - 15g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1 - 2*

When the temperature rises, we love to snack on frozen fruit bars... but fruit and veggie bars? Yup! Don't be scared -- all you taste is the delicious fruit. If you're intrigued by blended green drinks but not quite ready to add spinach to your smoothie, an Apple & Greens freezy bar could be just what you need. P.S. Have you tried the Dreyer's/Edy's coconut-water bars? So cool! (No pun intended.)

Dasani Sparkling
 
Dasani Sparkling

12-oz. can: 0 calories, 0g fat, 25 - 35mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*

There are lots of flavored sparkling waters out there, but this line stands out from the rest. It's naturally flavored and unsweetened, with just a subtle fruity taste. So delicious and refreshing, especially the Apple flavor! To really kick things up a notch, add a splash of fruit juice for a low-calorie summer sipper. Mmmm...

 
 
Big Slice Kettle Cooked Apples

1 package: 50 - 170 calories, 0 - 8g fat, 0 - 10mg sodium, 13 - 27g carbs, 2 - 5g fiber, 10 - 23g sugars, 0 - 5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1 - 5*

Imagine old-school chunky applesauce, like the kind your grandma would have made. Now give that saucy fruit a fun twist and convenient packaging... That's what we've got here! The varieties range from the simple Natural to decadent Cinnamon French Toast -- we're especially obsessed with that last one -- and they come in portion-controlled pouches for easy eating. So much yum... Click to find.

Snyder's Pretzel Spoonz
 
Snyder's Pretzel Spoonz

30g (about 15 pretzels): 120 calories, 1.5g fat, 320mg sodium, 24g carbs, <1g fiber, 0g sugars, 3g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

Ever tried scooping salsa with regular pretzels? It's borderline impossible. But these flat pretzels are perfect for dunking into just about anything, including HG dips -- a must-have when it comes to warm-weather party snacking. Grab a bag, and get that party going.

 
 
Applegate Naturals Uncured Pepperoni

1 oz. (about 16 pieces): 40 - 50 calories, 2 - 3.5g fat, 350 - 360mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 3 - 5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*

When you're making your own pizza (or even just something that TASTES like pizza), adding pepperoni is a no-brainer. And this new pepperoni from Applegate is nice 'n natural, PLUS the stats are really smart overall. We also like that it comes in Turkey and Pork, both guilt-free. What can we say? Options make us happy!

Dunkin' Donuts Limited Edition Spring & Summer Flavored Coffee
 
Dunkin' Donuts Limited Edition Spring & Summer Flavored Coffee


Finally, if you haven't picked up one (or all) of DD's seasonal flavored coffees, the time is now. ("HG, you forgot the stats!" The nutritional info for ground coffee is negligible, so they don't put it on the package.) Peach Cobbler, Coconut, Toasted Almond... All three make us think of relaxing vacation times, even when we're sipping it at our desks. Words cannot express how delicious these are!
