Spotted on Shelves...
Dreyer's/Edy's Slow Churned Light Ice Cream in New Limited Edition Flavors - LIGHT ICE CREAM ALERT! Find these new limited edition flavors ASAP. There's S'mores (complete with a graham cracker swirl, marshmallows, and chocolate chips!), Mud Pie (with fudgy sauce and chocolate cookies!), and Nestle Drumstick Sundae Cone (it has fudge, chocolate-covered peanuts, and cone pieces!). A half-cup serving of each has 120 - 140 calories, 4 - 5g fat, 19 - 21g carbs, 0g fiber, and 3g protein (POINTS® value 3*). AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! (That's us screaming for the new ice cream.)
Bumble Bee Prime Fillet Tonno in Olive Oil - Far be it from us to recommend tuna packed in oil, but this stuff is INSANELY flavorful and delicious. A drained 2-oz. serving (about 1/4 cup) has 110 calories, 5g fat, and 15g protein (POINTS® value 3*). It's so good you can eat it straight from the can. (Each can has about two servings, BTW.) Mmmmm!
Bear Naked 100% Pure & Natural Cereal - Cereal fans, hear THIS. Bear Naked, best known for its granola, is rolling out two DELICIOUS (we tried 'em!) granola-sprinkled cold cereals this month -- Cranberry Raisin (flakes with raisins, cranberries, pepitas, sunflower seeds, and apples) and Banana Nut (flakes with banana chips, oat clusters, apples, and walnuts). A 3/4-cup serving of either has 110 calories, 2.5g fat, 22 - 23g carbs, 2 - 4g fiber, and 1 - 3g protein (POINTS® value 2*). Heads up -- they're packaged in resealable bags, not boxes.
Restaurant Nutritionals to Hit Menus Nationwide!?!
Big news in the world of menu labeling, people. So far, only NYC and a handful of other cities and states have adopted a law requiring restaurant chains with at least 20 locations to post calorie counts on their menus. Now a NATIONAL law is in the works... and there's a new and exciting twist. These restaurants would also be required to provide additional stats -- like fat, carbs, and fiber -- immediately upon request. This latest proposal is a compromise between the two previously competing legislations with similar goals, making it much more likely to be passed. BTW, we appreciate the clever naming of these two acts. One is the LEAN Act (short for Labeling Education and Nutrition), and the other is the MEAL Act (Menu Education and Labeling). To weigh in on all this, take our latest poll by clicking here!
What's on the Menu? Stats, That's What!

You'll be interested to know that the chain is using "beef powder" and "rendered beef fat" in its new grilled chicken marinade.
