Cheesy-Good 100-Calorie Finds! - Heads up, cheese lovers! Check out the latest 100-calorie packs exploding with cheesy goodness. Look for 100 Calorie Mini Bites Smartfood White Cheddar Cheese Popcorn (1 package = 6g fat, 1g fiber -- POINTS® value 2*) and 100 Calorie Right Bites Cheez-It in new Extra Cheddar Party Mix (1 pouch = 3.5g fat, <1g fiber -- POINTS® value 2*). Mmmmmmm!
Specialty Salsas from Pace - Salsa ALERT! Our spies have eyed these brand-new Pace salsas, which we hear are popping up on shelves EVERYWHERE! Flavors include Triple Pepper Salsa (2 tbsp. = 15 calories, 0g fat, 1g fiber), Tequila Lime Salsa (2 tbsp. = 15 calories, 0g fat, 0g fiber), Salsa Verde (2 tbsp. = 15 calories, 0.5g fat, 0g fiber), and Pico De Gallo (2 tbsp. = 10 calories, 0g fat, 0g fiber). Those each have a POINTS® value of 0* per serving. BTW, there's also a crazy cheese one, but it's got way more calories and fat grams than the others. Now grab those Guiltless Gourmet chips and start dipping!
Brothers-All-Natural Potato Crisps - These tasty, freeze-dried, fat-free potato chips may just be the find of the century! In four lightly seasoned flavors -- Original (with sea salt), Szechuan & Chives, Onion & Garlic, and Black Pepper (with sea salt) -- each portion-controlled bag has just 45 calories, plus a gram of fiber (POINTS® value 1*). YOWZA!!! We have to admit, it takes at least 2 bags to kick a serious chip craving -- but for 90 calories, it's totally worth it! Find these at Costco or just order 'em online. Pssst... the folks at Brothers-All-Natural also make freeze-dried Fruit Crisps (in a slew of varieties), and those can be found at tons of stores including Whole Foods, Smart & Final, Pathmark and more.
Free Stuff and Nutty Shopping News!
Check it out...
Go Nuts Shopping! - Everyone's favorite food mascot, Stach, the spokesnut for Everybody's Nuts!, is livin' large over at the nut company's new online store. Not only can you nab pistachios there, but you can also purchase super-adorable Stach merch like T-shirts, pillows, hats and even toys (retro-style 3-D Viewers with reels of Stach comics -- remember View-Masters!?!). And, for a limited time, every order comes with a FREE 1.5-oz. bag of nuts! Ahhhhhhhh! Stach is so cute (and generous!), we can't stand it!!!!
We're Nutty About Stach!
Stuff You Didn't Know You Needed...
Teeny Breakfast Food Keychains - There's a REALLY good chance you've been living life WITHOUT tiny plush keychains shaped like breakfast foods. But that COULD be because you had no idea they existed. Well, they do. And they're CUTE. And we're in love with them (look how HAPPY that cup of coffee is!!!). Hurry, 'cuz they're goin' fast...
Ice Cream Stacker! - Scoops are good, but stacks are better (so neat and orderly!). This handy item allows you to easily collect and eject ice cream from the container in blocks that fit perfectly on your ice cream cone. So no more drippy cones and no more hand cramps from trying to scoop out overly frozen ice cream (woohoo!). We recommend getting the pink one and using it on Dreyer's/Edy's Slow Churned Light Ice Cream or Breyers Double Churn Free. Weeeee!
We are SO cool. Wanna know why? We wrote about the fact that the directions on the boxes for the Jimmy Dean D-Lights b-fast sandwiches were slightly "off", and the J Dean folks actually listened. Thanks to the feature in "Ask HG", they're changing the cooking instructions, starting next month. Yay for us (and for everyone out there who will now enjoy perfectly cooked b-fast sandwiches)! ***Nestea is getting a makeover!Look out for revamped bottles as well as Diet Green Tea Citrus with 50% MORE antioxidants than their pre-existing green teas. Hooray! ***A new study suggests that what a woman eats prior to pregnancy could actually affect the sex of her baby. In a nutshell (sorry, we've still got Stach on the brain!), researchers found that women who consumed more calories and a wider range of nutrients were more likely to produce males, and women who took in fewer calories and a smaller variety of minerals and nutrients were more likely to give birth to females. And, eating cereal supposedly increased the odds of having a boy! Hmmmmm... not sure we believe this one, folks. But click here for more on that. ***Here's the latest from the HG Book world...Books are still flying off shelves (click here to nab your copy!), and the book tour rolls on! We're in Walnut Creek today and San Francisco tomorrow(click on those cities for details). And in case you missed some of the hoopla last week, click here for a great story from the Rocky Mountain News, here for an ABC News segment that aired in Chicago, and here for a video clip from Extra. That's all we've got. HG out!
