What a Blast!
What a Blast!
Spotted on Shelves...

Breyers Blasts! Banana Split and Golden Oreo Cookies & Cream - These two new flavors in Breyers' goodie-packed ice cream line aren't billed as light, but the stats are totally impressive! And the taste? HEAD-EXPLODINGLY GOOD. Each 1/2-cup serving has 140 calories, 4.5g fat, 50 - 65mg sodium, 23g carbs, 0 - <1g fiber, 14 - 18g sugars, and 2g protein (PointsPlus® value 4*). Heads up: Not every flavor in the Breyers Blasts! line is guilt-free, so read those labels carefully!

Mom Made Bites Bite-Size Turkey Meatballs - Why are miniature foods so much fun? We don't know, but they are, and these li'l guys prove it. You get 9 meatballs for 140 calories, 4g fat, 135mg sodium, 9g carbs, 0g fiber, 1g sugars, and 17g protein (PointsPlus® value 4*). We got a sneak taste of these a while back and fell in love, so we're stoked that they're now in the freezer aisles of select supermarkets and natural-food stores nationwide. Get 'em!

Good Health Natural Foods Veggie Stix - Not all veggie crisps are guilt-free and delicious, but these crunchy sticks are! In Original, Hot, and... wait for it... PIZZA, each 1-oz. serving has 130 calories, 4.5 - 5g fat, 260 - 380mg sodium, 18 - 20g carbs, 0g fiber, 0 - 1g sugars, and 1g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). We wouldn't suggest giving up fresh veggies for these, but they do make a great potato chip swap. Find 'em in select supermarkets and health-food stores nationwide, or order some online. Pssst... Look for the single-serve packs!

BREAKING CHEWS!

Vitalicious VitaPizza Is On the Way!
Take everything you love about VitaTops -- low calorie and fat counts, natural ingredients, portion control, deliciousness, and a gigantic amount of fiber -- and apply it to pizza. What've you got? VITAPIZZA! That's right; Vitalicious is getting into the pizza game! In Cheese & Tomato and Meatless Pepperoni Supreme, each individually sized frozen pizza has 190 calories, 2.5 - 3g fat, 460 - 490mg sodium, 38g carbs, 19g fiber (!!!), 4g sugars, and 15 - 16g protein (PointsPlus® value 5*). VitaPizzas won't officially debut until the fall, but we wanted you to be the FIRST to know. They'll launch with online availability before rolling out into stores. We're so excited... AAAAAAAHHH!!! 

Coming Soon... Yoplait Greek 100 Yogurt (Weight Watchers Endorsed)!
This is HUGE. Not only has Yoplait Greek yogurt been reformulated to taste better than ever, but also it'll soon be available in 100-calorie containers with the official PointsPlus® value right on the label! Yoplait Greek 100 comes in SIX flavors, each with twice as much protein as ordinary yogurt, no fat, and a PointsPlus® value of 2 per 5.3-oz. container. And here's some more great Yoplait news: Soon all 6-oz. containers of Yoplait Light (excluding Thick & Creamy and Granola varieties) will be emblazoned with their official PointsPlus® value of 2! Look for Weight Watchers endorsed Yoplait Light and Yoplait Greek 100 on store shelves next month.

Sweet Scents, Stationery, and Decor!
Sweet Scents, Stationery, and Decor!
Stuff You Didn't Know You Needed...

Star Candle Company Candles - This company makes candles that smell like candy and cookies. And not just any candy and cookies -- Skittles, M&M'S, and Pepperidge Farm cookies. YEAH. We can't wait to infuse our rooms with the scent of Double Chocolate Milanos. We just hope it won't cause our willpower around the actual treats to go up in flames...

Flavorlopes - Willy Wonka would be proud of these fun flavored envelopes! There aren't any snozberry Flavorlopes, but there are various fruity flavors, plus seasonal varieties like Candy Corn, Pumpkin Spice, and Egg Nog... Sending out those long overdue thank-you cards never sounded so appealing!

Ice Cream Lamp - O.M.H.G. (Oh My, Hungry Girl!) How cute is this?! We can't imagine being in a bad mood with a giant ice cream cone lighting up our lives. This lamp stands at over two feet tall, and you can get it in Vanilla, Chocolate, or Strawberry. (Colors, that is. Do not lick the lamp.) Fun, fun, fun!

The Buzz...

Here's one more reason to heart Subway: The sandwich shop is the first national restaurant chain to get the American Heart Association's new Heart-Check Meal Certification for select menu items! The Heart-Check mark will be on Fresh Fit meals that pair 6-inch subs with apple slices and water. Fresh Fit for Kids meals with apple slices and low-fat milk also qualify, along with a selection of salad-based meals. Yay! ***Summer fruit just got more appealing... Recent research shows that peaches, plums, and nectarines contain compounds that may help fight obesity-related diseases. Apparently, the bioactive phenolic compounds have anti-inflammatory and antidiabetic properties, and they may reduce LDL cholesterol oxidation associated with heart disease. We don't need a scientific explanation to persuade us to eat delicious fruit, but it doesn't hurt! ***America has voted, and the results are in. The most popular ice cream flavor is... VANILLA! Chocolate chip mint and cookies 'n cream tied for second place. Better luck next time, strawberry... ***If you think fasting or skipping meals leads to diet success, you might want to keep reading. In a recent study, participants who fasted were more likely to reach for high-calorie starchy foods than veggies or protein after finishing their fasts. Female fasters were even more likely than the men to turn to starches. Go figure... ***Great idea from the world of vending machines: Seattle's Best Coffee Hot Drink Centers are rolling out this summer! Not such a great idea? Pizza vending machines. And that's all we've got. HG out!
