Hormel Turkey Pepperoni Minis - We love Hormel's standard-sized Turkey Pepperoni and have been using it in recipes for years. But we frequently find ourselves chopping it up... and hard-edged pepperoni pieces are simply not as cute as circles. Enter Hormel's new Minis! We don't have official stats, but they're likely similar to those of the original size: A serving (about 1 oz.) has 70 calories, 4g fat, 640mg sodium, and 9g protein (POINTS® value 2*). Way to go, Hormel!
Ortega Whole Grain Corn Taco Kit - Fiber-up your Taco Tuesday! This just-add-protein kit contains crunchy shells made with whole-grain yellow corn, plus taco sauce and seasoning. A serving (2 shells with sauce and seasoning) has 130 calories, 6g fat, 790mg sodium, 23g carbs, 6g fiber, 1g sugars, and 2g protein (POINTS® value 2*). Jazz up some lean ground turkey or soy crumbles, pile on the veggies, and go to town! BTW, the shells are also sold separately and have just 80mg sodium each, so feel free to assemble your own "kit" using low-salt/no-salt condiments.
V8 V-Fusion Light Acai Mixed Berry - We're super-fans of V-Fusion Light, so we're psyched for this new flavor and can't wait to give it a try. An 8-oz. serving has 50 fat-free calories, 35mg sodium, 13g carbs, and 10g sugars (POINTS® value 1*). It joins Peach Mango, Strawberry Banana, and Pomegranate Blueberry in the Light lineup. Woohoo! Just make sure to get the one labeled Light, since this flavor's offered in full-calorie V-Fusion as well.

Pudgy Pets: A Real Problem?!
The term "obesity epidemic" has been thrown around for years. And unfortunately, it's now being applied to our pets. The Association for Pet Obesity Prevention (bet you didn't even know that group existed!) monitors the weight of dogs and cats in America. Sadly, APOP has come to some upsetting conclusions: According to last year's data, more than 45 percent of dogs and 58 percent of cats in the U.S. are too heavy; about 9 percent of dogs and 21 percent of cats are CLINICALLY OBESE. Whoa. We love our furry kids! Experts say pet treats are enemy number one. Does this mean that instead of giving them treats with reckless loving abandon, we should be cutting off their snack supply!?! Well, if we want our animal friends to be around for a long time, we do need to pay attention to their weight. Check out APOP's website for loads of info: Find out your pet's caloric needs (the amount might be WAY less than you think), the 411 on how many calories are in popular pet food and treats, telltale signs of an overweight pet, and more.
It seems like all people can talk about these days is that crazy Double Down sandwich at KFC. (HG swap coming soon!) Well, get this -- for all the hubbub it's causing, it's NOT even the worst sandwich out there. Check out this frighteningly intriguing article, complete with comparison charts, that fills you in on more fast-food sandwich horrors. One of the worst? Wendy's Triple Baconator -- nearly two and a half times as awful as the Original Recipe Double Down. ***Cash-saving copycat alert! Pillsbury's Reduced Fat Crescent rolls are AWESOME, but if you want a price cut and have an Albertsons nearby, grab the grocery chain's store-branded version instead. The stats are nearly identical. Just a friendly neighborhood HG tip for ya. ***We love to pair up foods, so this new Quiznos deal caught our attention: The Choose 2 menu features ten $5 combos under 500 calories! Guilt-free options include the Cantina Chicken Sammie, Roadhouse Steak Sammie, Pan Asian salad, Chicken Noodle soup, and Tomato Basil soup. YUM! ***And finally, in weirdo science news, a recent study suggests that taking BIGGER bites of food and chewing them LESS is better for people watching their weight. (Not so good for people watching their BREATHING, though; um, choking hazard!) We're not sure about the validity of this one, but it's an interesting theory. That's all we've got. HG out!
