Betty Crocker Cereal Muffin Mixes - Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cocoa Puffs, and Reese's Puffs... in muffin form!?! IT'S TRUE! Each serving of the mix (1 muffin's worth; about 1/4 cup) has 110 - 120 calories, 1.5 - 3g fat, 170 - 190mg sodium, 22 - 24g carbs, 1g fiber, 11g sugars, and 1 - 2g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). We can't wait to HG-ify these using some guilt-free swaps (like no-sugar-added applesauce and fat-free egg substitute in place of oil and eggs). Stay tuned for the results, and look for these mixes in the baking aisle!

Taste Nirvana Real Coconut Water and Coco Aloe - There are a lot of coconut waters out there -- some good, and some not so good. This line is reeeeeeally GOOD! And don't be scared of the aloe offering... It tastes AMAZING, and it has extra fiber! A 9.5-oz. bottle has 50 - 70 calories, 0g fat, 42mg sodium, 10 - 16g carbs, 0 - 2g fiber, 9g sugars, and 1g protein (PointsPlus® value 1 - 2*). Click here to track some down.

New Flavors! Oikos Organic Nonfat Greek Frozen Yogurt - The latest flavors in this fabulous fro-yo lineup are worth getting excited about... Super Fruits (with pomegranate, raspberry, and acai) and Peach Mango! And each 1/2-cup serving has just 110 calories, 0g fat, 60mg sodium, 21g carbs, 0g fiber, 20g sugars, and 6g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). YUM!!!

Slimming Down Decadent New Fast-Food Items!

These fast-food newbies might seem like reasonable choices, but they're more fattening than you'd think! If you're gonna go for 'em, special order to save some fat and calories...

Taco Bell Cantina Chicken Bowl - We had high hopes for this new item, but it's a little high in the stats department -- 560 calories and 22g fat (PointsPlus® value 14*). Luckily, simply ditching the cilantro dressing brings the total down to 470 calories and 13g fat (PointsPlus® value 12*), and the dish still has roasted corn & pepper salsa and pico de gallo for a lot of flavor. If you wanna save even more calories and fat, skip the guac and you're down to 435 cals and 10g fat (PointsPlus® value 11*). Not bad for a protein-packed meal on the go!

Burger King Texas BBQ Tendergrill Chicken Sandwich - You might think a grilled chicken sandwich with a non-creamy condiment would be a great choice, but this packs a sizable 430 calories and 10g fat (PointsPlus® value 11*). Don't despair. Skip the cheese and you're down to 385 calories and 6g fat (PointsPlus® value 10*). Ditch the top half of the bun and enjoy this open-faced, and you'll save around another 100 calories. Score!

Wendy's Son of Baconator - We've already warned you about this petite burger and its insanely high stats -- 700 calories and 43g fat (PointsPlus® value 19*)! But you can indulge in a downsized bacon burger without the calorie overload. Just order a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger minus the mayo and cheese... You'll get bacon-burger goodness for 300 calories and 15g fat (PointsPlus® value 8*). Then pair it with a garden salad (light dressing on the side) to round out your meal. Mmmm!

Ice-Cold Lemonade... Guilt-Free AND All-Natural!

As great as lemonade is on a hot summer day, balancing out that tart citrus flavor often results in A LOT of sugary calories. Check out these new, all-natural, low-cal options...

Red Mango Lemonade Frozen Yogurt - Skip the standard frozen lemonade cups and give Red Mango's new treat a try! A small cup has just 130 fat-free calories (PointsPlus® value 4*). If it's traditional frozen lemonade you crave, go for a 16-oz. classic Frozen Lemonade for 180 calories (PointsPlus® value 5*). Not too shabby!

True Lemon Raspberry Lemonade and Original Lemonade 2-Quart Mixes - True Lemon's stevia-sweetened lemonade mixes taste AMAZING, and they now come in large packets that make 8-serving pitchers... perfect for summer parties! And only 5 calories per cup (PointsPlus® value 0*). Click to find or buy online.

Newman's Own Diet Virgin Lemonade - Butch Cassidy never steers us wrong. This ready-to-drink beverage has a slim 20 calories per 8-oz. serving (PointsPlus® value 1*). And while we're pretty sure that the word virgin is an allusion to its all-natural status, we can't help but wonder... Is an alcohol-infused sipper next on Newman's list?

Honorable Mention: Vitaminwater Zero Squeezed Lemonade - It's not new, but it is deliciously natural and naturally delicious! And just like the name implies, it has zero calories per serving. Yesssss!

The Buzz...

Oh, how the time flies... Last summer, we had just teamed up with our buds over at Flatout, launching Flatout Hungry Girl Foldit Flatbreads. And now we're celebrating one full year of having the tasty items in Walmart stores across the nation! Click here to locate Foldits, and click here for HG-developed recipes. Happy anniversary, Flatout! ***Daunted by the size of your weight-loss goal? Check this out -- losing a little weight can help a LOT in terms of your health. According to new research, even modest weight loss can reduce a person's risk for type 2 diabetes by 58 percent. And the benefits could last for up to 10 years, even if the weight is gained back. WHOA! ***On a related note, it appears that Americans may not really know how much weight they've lost or gained. Researchers studied data on the self-reported weights and weight losses of more than 775,000 Americans. Based on the info reported, the average weight (and the prevalence of obesity) should have declined; in reality, the average weight increased by a pound per person. Time to get honest, folks! ***Change of subject... Do you love dogs? Would you like to board a dog at your place while said pooch's parents are out of town? Wanna find a homeowner, not a kennel staffer, to watch your furry BFF while you're away? Check out DogVacayThink of it this way... If you're hosting a dog, you'll have an exercise buddy and a good reason to go for walks! ***Finally, this product is still a prototype, but MAN OH MAN does it need to be developed for real ASAP! The Milkmaid is a "smart" milk jug that can tell you if your milk has gone bad, how much longer it'll stay fresh, how many cups are left, etc. Let's hope this thing goes into mass production! That's all we've got. HG out!
