The Coolest Greek Yogurt Around...
The Coolest Greek Yogurt Around...
Spotted on Shelves...

Stonyfield Oikos Organic Nonfat Greek Frozen Yogurt - Greek yogurt is everywhere these days... including the freezer! We love this chilly, not-too-tart treat so much. It comes in Vanilla, Blueberry, Honey, and Chocolate. And the stats are GREAT: A 1/2-cup serving has 100 - 110 calories, 0g fat, 55 - 65mg sodium, 19 - 22g carbs, 0 - 1g fiber, 16 - 20g sugars, and 6g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). Find it exclusively at Whole Foods (coming soon to grocery stores nationwide). Opa!

Arnold/Oroweat 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins Mini's - These miniature 50-calorie versions of the regular Sandwich Thins are great for indecisive people. Why? Instead of committing to one kind of sandwich for lunch, you can make two different little ones! And if a mini sandwich is your idea of a great snack, you need these. A 2-roll serving has 100 calories, 1g fat, 170mg sodium, 22g carbs, 5g fiber, 2g sugars, and 5g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*).

All Natural Almond Accents, Tomato Basil
- This latest flavor of sliced almonds definitely has us intrigued. Does it taste pizza-y? What types of food would it taste good with? Salads and savory snack mixes are natural fits, but we might have to come up with a fun new recipe! A tablespoon has 40 calories, 3.5g fat, 55mg sodium, 2g carbs, 1g fiber, 0g sugars, and 1g protein (PointsPlus® value 1*). Look for these almonds in the produce aisle. We'll snack on them while we brainstorm recipe ideas...

Food Trends in the USA: What's Hot in the Food World...

There's more to trends than just jeggings and Twitter topics. There are food trends too. The NPD Group will soon be releasing the 26th Annual Report on Eating Patterns in America, and the market-research company has leaked a bit of info on what Americans ate more of in 2010 than ever before. When it comes to eating at home, Americans ate a lot of pizza -- if you're one of these peeps, you might want to click here. Salty snacks also ranked high -- click here for some guilt-free picks -- but, luckily, so did fruit and yogurt! When dining out, the trends veered toward breakfast sandwiches and hot cereal -- choose the right grab 'n go options, like these HG picks. Burritos were also popular -- we suggest sticking with light offerings, like the Fresco-style roll-ups at Taco Bell. Finally, iced tea rated highly last year -- if you're a tea sipper, be careful not to overdo it on the heavily sweetened types. Watch yourself, Trendy Trenderson!

The Buzz...

Voting matters... And an enticing election has just POPPED up! Extra Dessert Delights (our latest gum crush) is letting the chewers choose the next desserty flavor. Through November 12th, you can place your vote online for Bananas Foster (MMMM!), Lemon Square (COOL!), or Root Beer Float (BOO!). P.S. You can vote as many times as you want. (And we apologize for our attempts to sway the ballots.) ***In case you haven't heard, Cargill is in the midst of another voluntary turkey recall. Not as huge as last time, but check this product list to make sure you don't have any recalled items in your fridge. ***On to some good news, i.e., news that helps you do good things for others -- it's the Kraft Huddle to Fight Hunger! Just click "like" on the Facebook page and play the 2-Minute Trivia Drill game; for every "touchdown" scored, Kraft will donate a meal to the Feeding America food bank in your area. NICE. Do it now! ***Holy Willy Wonka! Mad scientists in Missouri (fine, they're sensible scientific researchers) have developed an ice cream that CHANGES FLAVOR IN YOUR MOUTH. We're pretty excited to try it, as long as there aren't any freaky side effects, like turning into a blueberry or being carried off by Oompa-Loompas... ***In the world of practical food innovations, Kikkoman now has a gluten-free soy sauce that's made from rice instead of wheat. Hooray! We do wish there were a reduced-sodium version though. ***Feeling the love in today's email? (We DO love you lots.) Then get excited for the next Hungry Girl episode... "Date Night!" Lisa will be making two-serving recipes perfect for you and your sweetie, plus dishing out tips on guilt-free restaurant dining. Watch the preview now, and tune in to Food Network THIS Sunday, 9/25, at 10am/9c for "Date Night" -- don't be late! And that's all we've got. HG out!

CHEW ON THIS:

ARRRR! Today, September 19th, is International Talk Like a Pirate Day, the most wonderful/obnoxious day of the year (depending on who you are). Chow on some seafood, and use the word "scurvy" as much as humanly possible. Scurvy...
