Knudsen 100 Calorie Cottage Doubles - We're big fans of cottage cheese, but it can be a little boring. Which is why we LOVE these portion-controlled fruity containers! Serving low-fat cottage cheese alongside fruity goodness is a GREAT idea. The new 100-calorie containers come in Peach, Pineapple, and Strawberry, each with just 1.5 - 2g fat, 300 - 310mg sodium, 11 - 12g carbs, 0g fiber, 9 - 10g sugars, and 8 - 9g protein (POINTS® value 2*). Those not on the West Coast: Look for the Breakstone's version later this year.
Bella Sun Luci Sun Dried Tomatoes in Sealable Bags, with Zesty Peppers or Italian Basil - Sun-dried tomatoes are delicious, but who needs all the oil they're typically packed in? Not us! These chewy things are full of flavor and free of fat. Add 'em to anything that could use tomatoey goodness -- salads, wraps, whatever! A half-ounce serving (about 2 tbsp.) has 35 calories, 0g fat, 35mg sodium, 6g carbs, 1g fiber, 4g sugars, and 2g protein (POINTS® value 0*). YUM! These are just now hitting shelves. Look for them in the produce department or order 'em online.
Hillshire Farm Turkey Lit'l Smokies - Sometimes we like our food big, but other times we like small and adorable food items... like THESE! The smoked turkey sausages are tasty, petite, and FUN. And a 5-link serving has just 80 calories, 4g fat, 480mg sodium, 4g carbs, <1g fiber, 2g sugars, and 8g protein (POINTS® value 2*). Psssst... Try 'em in our Pump-Up-the-Jam Cocktail Weenies recipe!

Self-Rising Pizza Stats!
Summertime Menu Changes: Good News/Bad News!
Jamba Juice Flatbreads Increase in Size... and Calories - When we tried these pizza-like items last summer, we deemed them too small to be worth the 250 - 330 calories and 8 - 13g fat each one packs. Now they're more than a fourth larger but have 320 - 420 calories and 8 - 16g fat a pop. Hmmmm...
Planet Smoothie Slashes Stats! - The smoothie chain has reportedly trimmed sugary calories from its sippers by embracing sugarless chocolate flavoring and a sweetener that combines stevia and agave. Let's hope they still taste good!
Super-Fatty Olive Garden Entrées (and a Light Dessert!) Arrive - These new limited-edition Italian crepes sound light and innocent, but they SO aren't. An order of the Five Cheese Crespelles with Chicken or Sausage has 1,260 - 1,310 calories and (are you sitting down?) 87 - 95g fat! Seems like the Garden's been flooded with fattiness. In more uplifting news, the seasonal Berries and Zabaione dessert -- which has a slim 200 cals and 9g fat -- is back. Berries + sorbet + custard = YUM!
Subway's Orchard Chicken Salad Returns! - Fans of the fruity, light-mayo-dressed chicken option that popped up at Subway last summer, GET EXCITED -- it's back! Have it on a 6-inch wheat sub for 370 calories and 8g fat. It won't be here forever, so chew it while you can. And if you get it on a $5 Footlong, SHARE it!
What is going on in the world of food these days? CRAZINESS! First off, check out these Sushi Poppers. That's right. SUSHI POPPERS. Description: "A portable tube with fresh pre-sliced sushi that is pushed up from [the] bottom and eaten from the top." Can these PLEASE be available everywhere?! Buy 'em online. (They come frozen!) ***Continuing the madness,a couple of guys in Maine have built a vehicle propelled by Mentos and Coke Zero.In an online video, the contraption can be seen traveling over 200 feet, fueled by nothing more than candy and soda. We sense a new wave of alternative energy fuels... *** In more normal news,Funky Monkey Snacks -- deliciously crunchy freeze-dried fruit in awesome flavors -- are now available in little single-serving packs on Amazon! Each 0.42-oz. bag has just 35 - 50 calories. YAY! *** Get ready to do to some good... It's food storage for a cause (a cause more important than preserving your leftovers)! The Glad company, maker of the very awesome Press'n Seal plastic wrap, is helping to raise funds for Cookies for Kids' Cancer, a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing pediatric cancer research. Purchase any specially marked Glad product and enter its code online, and Glad'll donate $1... 'til they hit $200,000. Impressive! ***Wanna know what's coming up this month in your HG emails?
