Dark chocolate, real fruit, roasted nuts, yummy spices... It all adds up to major flavor! We're nuts about the portion-controlled bites from Goodness Knows, which come four to a pack, and this new Honey Almond Bourbon Vanilla is our current favorite. Other new flavors include Peanut Butter Crunch, Maple Cinnamon & Almond, and more. Check out the whole lineup, and discover your favorite! Find these at CVS, Walmart, Target, and more, or order online.

New & Improved JicaChips

1 bag (0.9 oz., about 25 chips): 100 - 110 calories, 1.5 - 2.5g total fat (0 - 1g sat fat), 70 - 200mg sodium, 19 - 21g carbs, 5g fiber, 6 - 7g sugars, 2g protein -- SmartPoints® value 4*

This is major! We really liked JicaChips before, but now we LOVE them. Made from real jicama, these baked root-veggie chips are now even lighter and crispier than before. And they come in insanely delicious flavors. There's Sea Salt, Smoked BBQ, Spicy Soy Ginger, Chili Lime, White Cheddar, and (HELLO!) Cinnamon Sugar. They come in portion-controlled bags, they're gluten-free, they're loaded with fiber... What's not to love? Track 'em down, or order online!

There are a bazillion marinara sauces out there, so when we take time to shine the spotlight on one, you KNOW it means we've found a serious star. This rich and tasty sauce is made with Italian San Marzano tomatoes, fresh garlic, and a mix of seasonings that’s beyond-words delicious. It’s also completely free of preservatives and added sugars. Totally worth seeking out!
