Wolfgang Puck Culinary Iced Coffee - Giving Starbucks' bottled Fraps a run for their money, chef to the stars Wolfgang Puck has launched his own bottled brew. And all four flavors -- Vanilla Fusion, Crème Caramel, Double Blend Mocha, and Café au Lait -- are low in fat with reasonable calorie counts! Each 8.5-oz. bottle has 120 calories, 2.5g fat, 125 - 150mg sodium, 22 - 23g carbs, 0g fiber, 20 - 21g sugars, and 3g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). The Crème Caramel is the BEST! Click here to track 'em down. (They're currently in limited distribution, but we're told they'll go nationwide soon!)

Almondina Chocolate Dipped Biscuits
- These chocolate-dipped cookie crisps aren't new. But until recently, they were only available seasonally. Beginning this month, you'll be able to find the all-natural treats on shelves YEAR-ROUND! The crispy, biscotti-like goodies are packed with almonds and raisins (like the Original variety) and feature a gorgeous layer of dark chocolate. Each 2-cookie serving has 130 calories, 5g fat, 15mg sodium, 16g carbs, 4g fiber, 13g sugars, and 3g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). Grandma Dina, you ROCK!

Frozen StarKist SeaSations Fish Fillets and Seafood Entrées
- No more excuses about why you don't eat enough fish -- these freezer-aisle, microwave-ready options are too convenient to ignore. The pre-seasoned fillets come in steam-locked pouches, each with 90 - 120 calories, 2.5 - 6g fat, 420 - 470mg sodium, 3 - 7g carbs, 0.5 - 1.5g fiber, 0.5 - 4g sugars, and 11 - 13g protein (PointsPlus® value 2 - 3*). The meals come in TEN varieties, including Orange Miso Tilapia and Shrimp Arrabiata; each one has 210 - 310 calories, 2.5 - 9g fat, 560 - 1,110mg sodium, 33 - 60g carbs, 2.5 - 8g fiber, 1.5 - 17g sugars, and 10 - 20g protein (PointsPlus® value 5 - 8*). Nice job, Charlie! (Chuck's the StarKist tuna mascot, in case you didn't know.)

Who Made the List? Top 10 Food & Beverage Launches of 2010...

We like to keep a finger on the pulse of the modern American eater, and we're PSYCHED that this year's New Product Pacesetters list (from consumer-savvy group SymphonyIRI) is PACKED with HG faves! Chobani (our new Greek yogurt crush) landed the number two spot in the top ten, Wonderful Pistachios placed third, and Vitaminwater Zero came in at number four. Also on the list: Trop50 and Trident Layers! Are you noticing a trend? Many of these hot items are TOTALLY guilt-free. WAHOOOOO! We hope this paves the way for even more amazing HG-friendly products in the marketplace. Who's gonna make the 2011 list? Baked Classics Vanilla Frosting Multigrain Crisps? Cinnamon Burst Cheerios?! Sarris Candies Pretzel Slims 100 Calories!?! We'll keep our fingers crossed. Congrats to all of this year's successful products!

Spice Up Your Life... with SAUCE!

Little Thief Mustard Company Artisan Mustard in Tequila Jalapeño Kiss - Forget kissing; this 5-calorie-per-tsp. mustard is so good, we kinda want to make out with it. (OK, fine, maybe not.) It's from the brilliant minds at Lucero, makers of amazing flavored balsamic vinegars. Yeah, it's pricier than your average mustard, but if you're mustard freaks like we are, this is worth the splurge...

Mama Selita's Jalapeño Ketchup - Yup, MORE jalapeño fun! With the season of hot dogs and hamburgers creeping closer (it'll be here before you know it), this is a quirky tomato condiment to add to your arsenal of toppings. Just 20 calories per tablespoon, people.

Bacon Hot Sauce
- It's hard to argue with this pitch: "Do you like bacon? Do you like hot sauce? Buy Bacon Hot Sauce!" It doesn't get more straightforward than that. P.S. It's calorie-free!

The Buzz...

We have AMAZING news, people -- clips of the Hungry Girl TV show can now be seen on Cooking Channel's website! So if you're one of the many who doesn't get the channel, rejoice in the knowledge that you can now watch some of the HG action right on your computer. YAAAAY!!! ***Need some tough love when it comes to your exercise regimen? Check this out -- Boston-based Gym-Pact is like Groupon and LivingSocial, but with a few major differences: It sends discount offers for fitness centers only, you have to commit to going weekly, and you're charged a fee if you miss a workout. OUCH! ***If you're concerned about potential carcinogens in your food, read this. According to new research, hot dogs and deli meats have low amounts of carcinogenic compounds, and the amount in rotisserie chicken is significantly higher. Interesting! Rotisserie lovers can reduce consumption of these compounds by ditching the chicken skin, but the meat's still much higher than the other items. ***Here's a way to make sure that a lovingly packed lunch does not go unappreciated. This new lunchbox prototype records video of its meal being packed, replays the images for the recipient when unloaded, and then records the food being eaten so the packer can later watch it. Learn to chew with a smile on your face! ***Sure, pets are great companions, but research shows that they can also aid in recovery from heart attacks, lowering blood pressure, and lowering cholesterol, as well as provide other benefits to physical and mental health. Sounds like someone deserves a treat! ***Have you picked up your copy of Hungry Girl 300 Under 300 yet? If not, what are you waiting for? If so, head over to Amazon and review the book -- we'll be giving away prizes at random to the reviewers. Because we love you. And if you want to tell Lisa what you think of the book IN PERSON, check out the super-fun book-signing events. There will be amazingly delicious free snacks, big prizes, and good times for all. This Thursday's event is in LOS ANGELES! Click here for info on all the book signings. That's all we've got. HG out!
