Weeee... New Tea!
Spotted on Shelves...
Celestial Seasonings Cool Brew Iced Teas - Perfect for summer, these new-and-improved tea bags brew up FANTASTIC calorie-free iced tea in minutes... no hot water needed! Check 'em out in Blueberry Green Tea, Raspberry Black Tea, Peach Black Tea and caffeine-free Tropical Fruit Herbal Tea. They're a new staple at the HG HQ!
100 Calorie Packs Honey Maid Delight Bars - Even though there are new 100-calorie items launching every minute, we're still JAZZED about these soft, chewy bars with yummy fillings and icing drizzles. They come in two varieties -- Chocolate and Cheesecake. Each bar has 3 - 3.5g fat and 3g fiber (POINTS® value 2*). They're really good -- especially the Chocolate ones!
Jell-O Pudding Singles in Sugar Free - These are FINALLY popping up in stores! If you have a thing for convenient, single-serving stuff, grab a box of these pudding mix packets! In Vanilla and Chocolate, these sugar-free versions have 70 - 80 calories and no fat (POINTS® value 1 - 2*) when prepared with skim milk. (The Vanilla one has the lower stats.) Now you can easily have sugar-free pudding for one... FAST. (Um, not quite as fast as grabbing a pre-packaged Jell-O SF pudding snack cup from the fridge, but still pretty fast...)
Progresso Light ALERT!!!!
This is big, people! Last year we broke the news about Progresso Light Soups (you know, the ones endorsed by Weight Watchers with a POINTS® value of 0 per serving!). Well, this year we're THRILLED to announce that our close personal pals over at Progresso are launching NINE new Light Soup options... AHHHHHH!!!! Here's the soup scoop.
Proteined-Up P. Light! FOUR new varieties with meat -- Chicken Noodle, Chicken Vegetable Rotini, Beef Pot Roast, and Santa Fe Style Chicken -- each with a POINTS® value of 1 and only 70 - 80 calories and 0.5 - 1.5g fat per 1-cup serving.
P. Light Goes Portable! THREE of their popular Light flavors in portable microwavable bowls -- Italian-Style Vegetable, Homestyle Vegetable and Rice, and Vegetable and Noodle -- each with 100 calories, less than a gram of fat, and a POINTS® value of 1 for the whole thing (about 2 cups).
P. Light with Less Salt! TWO Reduced Sodium options with MUCH lower sodium stats (460 - 470mg per serving) -- Roasted Chicken & Vegetable with a POINTS® value of 1 (yeah, this one has meat, so technically there are FIVE new protein-packed flavors!) and Vegetable with a POINTS® value of 0 (making it the 2nd vegetarian option in the entire line). Those each have 60 - 70 calories and 0 - 1g fat per 1-cup serving.
Sodium-counters will also be happy to know that the original five Progresso Light Soups will have 25% less sodium than they originally contained. Look for the new offerings to hit store shelves starting in late July. And remember, it's NEVER too hot out to enjoy soup -- BECAUSE SOUP ROCKS (especially when it's light and delicious)!!!

And in unrelated yet equally exciting HG news, keep an eye out for the new Fiber One cereal boxes (all FOUR flavors!) featuring our "Lord of the Onion Rings" recipe on the back. Weeeee!
Cool news, from the world of cereal! Kellogg's is reformulating and "healthing up" many of their classic cereals (like Froot Loops, Corn Pops, and Apple Jacks). The new versions (hitting shelves any day now!) all contain 12g of sugar or less per serving, and some have fewer calories and/or less sodium than before. The peeps at Kellogg's say the new versions will taste just as good as the originals. And speaking of cereal, check out this FREE MULTIGRAIN CHEERIOS SAMPLE offer... Woohoo! ***Japanese-owned Otsuka Pharmaceuticals is trying harder than ever to make Americans love SOYJOY bars. Despite the addition of new flavors, CRAZY-CUTE commercials and super-clever ad campaigns, these bars, um, still taste HORRIBLE. Listen up, SOYJOY makers -- if you want us to eat these things, THE BARS NEED TO TASTE BETTER (it's not really all that complicated)! ***Speaking of weird things coming out of Japan, did you know there's a new national law there that requires companies and local governments to measure the waistlines of people between the ages of 40 and 74 at their annual physicals? Oversized people with weight-related ailments will be counseled if they don't drop weight within 3 months, and the government will eventually impose financial penalties on companies and local governments that fail to meet specific targets. BIZARRO, but they're trying to tackle obesity there. (Pssst... Hey, Japan -- if you want to solve the obesity problem, try feeding everyone over there SOYJOY bars instead.) ***Apparently creating cute videos about foods you love could result in getting LOTS of free stuff! Our girlie-pals over at WhateverHollywood.com found that out when they put together a little video featuring a song for their favorite crunchy snacks, Popchips. Click here to check out this catchy little ditty. That's all we've got. HG out!
