Yumnuts Naturals Slow Dry-Roasted Cashews - We're OBSESSED with these amazingly delicious, no-oil-added cashews, and we have a feeling you will be, too. They come in Chocolate, Spicy Cajun, Sea Salt, Toasted Coconut, Chili Lime, and Honey! A 1/4-cup serving has 160 - 170 calories, 11 - 13g fat, 7 - 12g carbs, 1 - 3g fiber, and 4 - 6g protein (POINTS® value 4*). Portion them out before you chew. Find these at select Whole Foods locations and supermarkets, or order 'em online at Amazon. And Yumnuts? Consider this our OFFICIAL plea for single-serving packs.

Gourmè Mist - Not only does this company make eco-friendly "misters" full of fancy oil, but it ALSO has spritzable balsamic vinegar AND travel-size containers! After having plenty of "oops, my bottle of vinegar slipped and drowned my salad" moments, we're very thankful. A 1-second spray of the fancy-pants vinegar -- which comes in fruity flavors like balsamic with pomegranate -- has just 1 calorie. The cold-pressed, imported oil -- choose canola or extra-virgin olive -- has 4 calories and <1g fat per 1-second spray. SO COOL! These are popping up on shelves nationwide (click here for stores) and can also be bought online.

Quaker Chewy Fright Night Chocolate Chip with Candy Pieces Mini Granola Bars - "Obesity epidemic" or not, no kid wants to see a box of raisins or an apple in their plastic jack-o'-lantern this Halloween. However, Quaker has found a middle ground, packaging little granola bars with candy pieces inside them for trick-or-treaters! So if you're not into the idea of plopping chocolate bars into the kiddies' feed bags, hand out these babies instead. Definitely a better alternative. And WAY better than getting your house egged. Each mini bar has 60 calories, 2g fat, 10.3g carbs, 0.67g fiber, and 0.67g protein (POINTS® value 1*).

Please Slash the Salt!
People are becoming a little more careful about their salt intake these days, and processed foods can be a HUGE source of sodium. That's why it's GREAT NEWS that ConAgra Foods -- parent co. to brands like Hebrew National, Hunt's, and Chef Boyardee -- recently announced plans to reduce the sodium content in its products by TWENTY percent over the next five years! Up to twenty ConAgra brands will be affected, and the company plans to tweak its manufacturing techniques as needed, to make sure the foods are still full of flavor. We're excited to see food companies changing for the better and listening to what the people want. And, um, fingers crossed for lower sodium Hebrew National 97% Fat Free Beef Franks!


Gotta Lock That Down!
Food is important, but the safety of yourself and your loved ones is MORE important, so we feel totally justified in halting the snack talk to mention this. If you're in college or know someone who is, check out SecureOnCampus.com, an awesome resource for mini-safes (lock up personal documents and bank statements -- identity theft stinks!), computer locks (laptops are some of the most frequently stolen items on campuses), self-defense spray (in cute pink cases), emergency kits, and other devices and info to keep you and your stuff safe. We think maybe the site should add a lockable mini-fridge... just in case hungry roommates can't keep their paws off the guilt-free grub!


Trick or Treat?! No, REALLY...
WARNING! The jelly beans you are about to consume may be highly disgusting. Be a little wary if your prankster friend hands you a tin of jelly beans -- you could get BEANBOOZLED. Jelly Belly's BeanBoozled candies come in twenty flavors... but only ten colors. Each color has a good-tasting version (like Chocolate Pudding) and a bad-tasting version (like Canned Dog Food). You can personalize tins and include one color or the full array. Why do it? Who knows. People are weird. We just know that if any Rotten Egg flavored beans end up in our office, there's gonna be trouble. Click here to see all the flavors -- the good AND the gross. Each bean clocks in at 4 calories. P.S. Rumor has it, the formula for the Barf flavor is based on Jelly Belly's failed attempts at making a pepperoni pizza flavor back in the day...

NEW HG VIDEO ALERT! To see our brand-new (and completely silly!) Halloween video -- featuring the HG staff and a slew of delicious and spooky no-guilt recipes -- CLICK HERE NOW! ***In pretty-new-packaging news (yes, there is such a thing), keep an eye out for the brand-new and improved Crystal Light "look." The powdered drink giant has changed its familiar logo to make it more current, clean, crisp, and COOL. We like it! We also enjoy the new planet-friendly, multi-serving packets that are replacing those outdated tubs. Food collectors interested in owning the old clunky canisters, grab some before they're gone forever. Then sell them on eBay for a bundle in a few years (or just use 'em when you're thirsty). ***Do you think P.F. Chang's doesn't care about giving you some no-guilt options? If so, you're flat wrong (and that's a GOOD thing)! Check out the steamed Buddha's Feast entrée (only about 400 calories for the ENTIRE 2.5-serving order!) and the Orange Peel Shrimp (less than 200 calories per serving). Not bad for the home of the 1,440-calorie Great Wall of Chocolate. That's all we've got. HG out!
CHEW ON THIS:
Only a few short days left in National Popcorn Poppin' Month. Celebrate with the super-delicious Jolly Time Healthy Pop Caramel Apple 94% Fat Free microwave popcorn -- so good it hurts! (And if you can't find that flavor, the other 94% Fat Free kinds are pretty great, too.)
