We are constantly updating our beloved supermarket list, but since it's SO incredibly thorough (read: GINORMOUS), you might not notice the specific items we add with each new edition. So before we release our very latest list (NEXT WEEK!), we want to call attention to the TOP ATE things that should DEFINITELY find a comfy seat in your shopping cart. Here they are now, in totally random order...
1. The Laughing Cow Mini Babybel Light PER SERVING (1 piece): 50 calories, 3g fat, 160mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 6g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*
We know these adorable wax-wrapped cheese rounds are not exactly new, but our undying love for them IS. We don't know WHY it took us so long to appreciate the creamy texture, sharp flavor, and incomparable meltability of this light cheese. Think of it as that friend you've had for years but only just realized is your soulmate. (It's the Duckie of light cheeses.)
2. Sara Lee 80 Calories & Delightful Wheat Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns PER SERVING (1 bun): 80 calories, 1g fat, 160mg sodium, 14 - 15g carbs, 6g fiber, 2g sugars, and 4g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*
Just in time for frankfurter 'n hamburger season, we've got a new favorite light-bun option! All those 100-cal flat-bun items are great, but if you want a fluffy bun to cradle your burger or hot dog, THESE are for you. What's the point of wasting calories on a ginormous roll?! Everyone knows that it's what's on the INSIDE that counts...
3. New Flavors! The Laughing Cow Light Cheese Wedges PER SERVING (1 wedge): 35 calories, 1.5 - 2g fat, 220 - 240mg sodium, 2g carbs, 0g fiber, 1g sugars, 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*
"Eagerly anticipated" doesn't even begin to cover it. We straight-up could NOT wait for these things to hit store shelves!!! Now that they're rolling out, we can put away our countdown calendar and start spreading! The new varieties -- in case you didn't hear or somehow forgot -- are Blue Cheese, Queso Fresco & Chipotle, and Mozzarella, Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil. Have 'em on those light buns with your favorite no-guilt burger patties -- YUM!
4. Diet Snapple Trop-A-Rocka Tea PER SERVING (8 fl. oz.): 5 calories, 0g fat, 5mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
We practically lost our minds the first time we tried this stuff, which was developed by Bret Michaels... and not because we had Poison posters over our beds well into the '90s. Seriously, this may be the BEST diet iced tea EVER. Take a sip and prepare for a tea-rific fruity explosion in your face: mango, cinnamon, peaches, and pears. TOO GOOD. It's a limited-edition flavor, but we're campaigning to get it permanently added to Snapple's lineup. Click here and BEG the Snapple people to make it happen.

Honestly, what can we say about these individual servings of light ice cream that we haven't already said? In case you missed our previous raves, these cups are full of creamy, dreamy, delicious, frozen guilt-free goodness. The flavor combos are impossibly good: Strawberry Cheesecake, Caramel Cone, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Cookies 'N Cream, and Dulce de Leche. What more could you want?! Find them and spoon them! (Caramel Cone, you're our BFF.)
6. Dr. Kracker Seedlander Flatbreads PER SERVING (1 flatbread): 100 calories, 4.5g fat, 190mg sodium, 13g carbs, 2g fiber, 2g sugars, 4g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
We never knew how much love we could feel for a giant cracker... until now. That's because these are no ordinary crackers. Each one is LARGE and encrusted with pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, flaxseeds... The list goes on! These goodies are organic (a nice plus), they're baked, AND each has one bare side that happens to be perfect for spreading with a wedge of The Laughing Cow Light cheese. These flat snacks RULE! Thanks, Doc K!
7. AriZona Sugar Free Iced Tea Stix, Pomegranate Green Tea PER SERVING (1/2 packet): 0 calories, 0g fat, 0mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
Another great find for summer, these "stix" will turn a plain old bottle of water into a flavorful (yet calorie-free!) beverage. We're typically not HUGE fans of green tea, but this perfectly sweet and fruity stuff is a major exception. FYI, AriZona also makes a 5-calories-per-serving Arnold Palmer version -- a TOTAL calorie bargain for a premixed and purse-friendly tea-lemonade hybrid.
As much as we love bagels (which is A LOT), we can't help but avoid them and their high-calorie, carb-tastic ways. Hence, these slim swappers are PERFECT for those of us who crave round bread treats with holes in the middle. The Plain and 100% Whole Wheat varieties are impressive enough, but the Everything version?? Mind-explodingly incredible. Truly.
CHEW ON THIS: Friday, June 18th, is International Picnic Day! Throw a bunch of your favorite guilt-free foods into a basket, grab some friends or family members, and dine alfresco (as long as it's nice outside)!
