Can't get enough of Gayle's Miracles, the world's most delicious guilt-free truffle? Good news! Gayle will soon release Raspberry versions of her famous candies (they're currently available in chocolate mint, dark & milk varieties). These chocolates won't be released for a few months (in time for the holidays) but Gayle has given us a sneak peek. We only have 6 of these super-secret chocolate raspberry truffles left, and we want to give ONE away (we want to eat the other five) to a very lucky Hungry Girl subscriber. Wanna win it? Email us and tell us why YOU should be the one to try out the new flavor truffle. If you convince us, we'll send it to you. Then you can do what you want with it; eat it...sell it on eBay...keep it as a pet...
Jell-O Pudding Pops are Back!
If you're like most of us, you probably shed a tear or two when Kraft put the brakes on production of the Jell-O Pudding Pop. It was a sad, sad day for us all. After getting a tip from an overzealous snacker, Hungry Girl learned that these frozen dream bars have been slowly creeping back into stores since early this Summer. We immediately ran out to find and sample them, and much to our delight they're as good as we remember! Available in vanilla, chocolate and the ever-popular swirl, these diet-friendly treats contain just 90 calories and 2g of fat each. Welcome back!
A Dash of Good Health
Recent studies show that as little as 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, twice a day, may lower blood sugar and cholesterol. The tasty spice which has an insulin-like effect, can lower blood sugar by an average of 18-29%, triglycerides (fatty acids in the blood) by 23-30%, LDL (bad) cholesterol by 7-27% and total cholesterol by 12-26%. Hold up, Sister -- before you start gobbling it down like Pixy Stix, you should know that cinnamon may be harmful in very large doses. So don't overdo it. Just enjoy a dash here and a dash there -- and you might improve your health.
The Fries Have It...
If you knew eating french fries would cause you to gain weight, but would be good for the environment, would you eat them? You might be faced with this dilemma sooner than you think. A research team in Nevada is trying to convert the leftover oil from french fries into an environmentally-friendly diesel fuel. This oil (taken from various restaurants) will be mixed with ethanol, a bi-product of vegetable waste. The delicious-sounding (we're pathetic, aren't we?) new "gas" will also reduce smog by cutting down on nitrogen oxide emissions. If only it would add a permanent "McDonald's scent" to your vehicle...
