Talk Soup!

We love soup. And there's some steamy-good news coming out of the soup world. For starters, Target is now carrying limited edition Campbell's Tomato Soup cans with labels derived from Andy Warhol's artwork. We can't wait to get our hands on (and our spoons IN) the retro cans! As for more hot news, the people behind the Chicken Soup for the Soul books are taking their franchise in the next logical direction... by launching a food line! Look for seven soul-satisfying soups on shelves early next year, with more to follow. And we couldn't talk soup without mentioning two decadent new options in the Progresso Light line (an HG fave!)... Chicken Pot Pie Style and Creamy Potato with Bacon & Cheese, each with just 100 calories and 3g fat per cup (PointsPlus® value 2). Souper!!! And finally, if the words "NO SOUP FOR YOU" still hold a special place in your heart, prepare to melt: You can now score a bowl from the man who inspired Seinfeld's Soup Nazi character. Cartons of The Original SoupMan's stuff are now available in stores nationwide and online! (Pssst... Avoid the heavy Lobster Bisque.) Next!

The Buzz...

***Did you know that Vitalicious makes 50-calorie chocolate treats? You might... but did you know THIS? Now it's easier than ever to get your hands on the Fudgy Chocolate Mini VitaCakes, 'cuz they're available at Walmart! Look for them in the frozen breakfast section... ***TUNE-IN ALERT: Don't miss an all-new episode of the Dr. Oz Show this Friday (9/21) featuring Lisa, Hungry Girl herself! Lisa will be whipping up an exclusive super-sized recipe using boxed mac 'n cheese, making over fried favorites, and more. Tune in, or set your DVR! ***Breakfast is looking better and better over at IHOP, with new oatmeal options courtesy of Quaker. The pancake peeps partnered with the oatmeal gurus to develop new Simple & Fit oatmeals -- Banana and Brown Sugar, Super Fruit, and Super Fruit with Almonds and Walnuts -- with 260 - 330 calories per order. More Simple & Fit whole-wheat items have also been added to the menu -- pancakes, waffles, and crepes! Hop to it... ***Take note, restaurant owners: Ambience is more than mood lighting; it's FOOD lighting. In a recent study, customers who dined in restaurants with dimmer lights and softer music enjoyed their food more and consumed less of it. We're gonna go unscrew a few lightbulbs and put on some smooth jazz right now... ***Let's close things with a blast from the past... Remember Crystal Pepsi? Doritos 3D? The McDLT? Take a walk down memory lane with this slide show of failed food products. And that's all we've got. HG out!
