Spotted on Shelves...

Popsicle Sour Patch Kids - They're meant for kids, but these pops are a new obsession over at the HG HQ. Tart and frozen, they come in Lime, Raspberry, and Orange. Each one has just 40 calories, 10g carbs, and 8g sugars (PointsPlus® value 1*). With stats this good, feel free to enjoy two at a time! Find 'em in the freezer aisle of your local supermarket...

Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegars - We love seasoned rice vinegar -- sweet, tangy, awesome. And this completely unique lineup takes it to the next level. There's Balsamic Blend, Basil & Oregano, Roasted Garlic (with bits of garlic in the bottle), Red Pepper, and more! Each 1-tbsp. serving has just 15 - 20 calories, 190 - 240mg sodium, 4 - 5g carbs, and 4 - 5g sugars (PointsPlus® value 0 - 1*). Perfect for salads, slaws, and more. Click to track down Nakano goods at a store near you, and splash some on!

New Flavors! Special K Pastry Crisps - Not just fruit flavors anymore... These tasty treats now come in two decadent dessert flavors: Brown Sugar Cinnamon and Chocolatey Delight. Yeah! Each 2-crisp pouch has 100 calories, 2g fat, 80mg sodium, 20g carbs, 0 - <1g fiber, 7g sugars, and 1g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). We're always excited to find a sweet snack with stats like these. Crunch crunch, yum yum...

Spotted Online... Hungry Grill Must-Haves!

Grilling is awesome. (Food on a stick! Grill marks! Fun in the sun!) And we're eyeing a few finds that can make it more awesome... First up, check out these GrillCombs! Forget threading each item all the way down a skewer (the mushrooms always split in half!) -- these multipronged utensils make the process super-easy. Need something better suited to long skinny veggies like asparagus spears and scallions? Grill Clips might be more your style. These clamps will keep the slim items secure. (And, yes, we're completely entertained by the fact that both products look and sound like they could be used on your hair.) Moving on to actual food items, check out Ore-Ida Grillers. These thickly cut potato slices go from frozen to crispy in just 15 minutes on the grill; each serving has 130 - 140 calories and 5g fat (PointsPlus® value 3 - 4*). Fire up the grill, and get ready to have some fun!

The Heat Is On!
The Heat Is On!
Ahhhhhh... GREEK OUT!
Ahhhhhh... GREEK OUT!
And the Greek Goes On... More Greek Yogurt Fun!

Last week we told you about new Yoplait Greek 100. Now look who's joining the party!

Dannon Light & Fit Greek Yogurt - Another low-calorie Greek yogurt lineup has entered the ring, and this one's from Dannon. The 5.3-oz. containers of fat-free yogurt each have 80 calories and 12g protein (PointsPlus® value 2*). Wowzers! Flavors include Strawberry, Blueberry, Cherry, and Vanilla. We love options...

Yoplait Smoothie Made with Greek Yogurt - Yoplait's ready-to-blend frozen smoothie packs have gone Greek. In both Mixed Berry and Strawberry Banana Orange, each pouch has 100 - 110 calories, 1.5g fat, and 5g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). Ummm... YUM! Each smoothie has 160 - 170 calories when prepared with 3/4 cup skim milk, but we prefer this low-cal milk swap!

Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt - Not only is this creamy treat low in fat and calories, but it's also portion controlled! In Blueberry, Strawberry, Raspberry, and Vanilla, each 4-oz. snack cup has 100 calories, 1.5 - 2g fat, and 4g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). Find these at Walmart in the freezer aisle, next to the Healthy Choice meals. They'll be hitting more stores later this summer!

And currently being tested in select locations, Pinkberry Greek Yogurt! This is REGULAR, not frozen, Greek yogurt. Interesting! Plain or with toppings, the Snack sizes have 70 - 210 calories and Meal sizes have 100 - 290 calories. We can't wait to try these!
