Trident Layers - Yup, gum has found its way into "Spotted." Why? Because this is some of the BEST and most unique out there. Not only is it GORGEOUS and stripey, but it also comes in two very fun flavors: Wild Strawberry + Tangy Citrus and Green Apple + Golden Pineapple. (We're kind of obsessed with the green apple/pineapple stuff.) And it has less than five calories per sugar-free piece. Look for it by the checkout line at your local supermarket.
Flatbread or FATbread?
We've talked/written your ears/eyes off about the rush of flat sandwich breads on the market: Arnold Select/Oroweat Sandwich Thins, Pepperidge Farm Deli Flats, and now EarthGrains 100% Natural Thin Buns, which are high in fiber and low in fat with 100 calories (POINTS® value 1*) per bun, like the others. Well, here's a pretty important heads up for you. There's a product out there called International Fabulous Flats Sandwich Flats. It looks exactly the same as the others BUT... it has about 75% MORE CALORIES than the ones by brands we love! Granted, said higher cal copycat doesn't have HORRIBLE stats: Each Sandwich Flat has 170 - 180 calories, 1.5 - 2g fat, 33 - 35g carbs, 5g fiber, and 6g protein (POINTS® value 3*). And it's actually really good -- chewy, nicely spiced, and very fresh-tasting. But we're bringing these unexpected nutritionals to your attention, so that you don't mistake Sandwich Flats for the nearly identical, lower calorie versions. Be careful out there!

YAY! ***If you're obsessed with Laughing Cow Light like we are, you may have noticed some copycats (or should we say, copyCOWS) popping up on shelves. Both Sonoma Jacks and Swiss Knight are making wheel-packed cheese wedges with similar stats. As far as we can taste, no one has come close to replicating the sheer PERFECTION of Laughing Cow Light. Thoughts?***FACT! That grinning jack-o-lantern bucket full of Halloween leftovers could contain 200 pieces of bite-sized candy -- about 10,000 calories! Don't let the sugar-packed celebration go on until Christmas. Ditch the candy, humans. Take it to work, give it to visitors... just let it go. That's all we've got. HG out!
