World's Cutest Recipe Cards! Own Them!
Super-Sonic You may recall that last Tuesday's email featured a FANTASTIC recipe makeover of Sonic's Fritos Chili Cheese Wrap. Well, we got a super-nice email from a Sonic rep (who's also a devoted HG subscriber!) letting us know about some HG-friendly options at the drive-in chain. There are grilled chicken options, fresh bananas (fancy!), apple slices with fat-free caramel sauce, a massive array of diet drink choices (unsweetened flavored iced teas, Low-Calorie Diet Cherry Limeade, etc.), and (according to some fairly convincing data over at WebMD) the best choice, healthwise, when it comes to fast food fries. Go, Sonic! And to all the fast food and chain restaurants -- you should know that when HG creates a Bite It!/Fight It! about one of your fatty items, it means you've arrived!
It's the Great Pumpkin, Hungry Girl! True, it's been a rough few months of gazing at the empty market shelves where the canned pumpkin should be. But -- good news -- the pumpkin shortage is OVER! One thing to note: The pumpkin you get from your cans of Libby's may have a slightly different texture than before (a little softer). However, that kind of thing happens with all-natural products and varies from crop to crop. Who cares? Pumpkin is back! And can you handle MORE good pumpkin news? Torani's seasonal Sugar Free Pumpkin Pie Syrup is HERE! (Like all of Torani's SF syrups, it has ZERO calories per serving.) It's been spotted at World Market, and you can order it through Amazon. Grab a bottle and wow your pals with pumpkin lattes...
