Jamba: Raising the Bar!
Spotted on Shelves...
Jamba Yogurt & Sorbet Bars - The smoothie people are invading your home freezer! These swirl-icious frozen treats come in the following fun flavors: Coconut Pineapple Passion Smashin' (Best. Bars. On Earth.), Vanilla Blueberry Pomegranate Perfection (not our favorite), and Vanilla Strawberry Jubilation (AWE-SOME)! Plus, they are all natural and contain good-for-you probiotics. YEE-HAA! Each bar has 80 - 90 calories, 1 - 2g fat, 20 - 25mg sodium, 18 - 20g carbs, 3g fiber, 12 - 13g sugars, and 1g protein (POINTS® value 1*). Click to find 'em!
Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Fillets - Delicious lean chicken that's ready to go? Yup! This stuff comes frozen and fully cooked -- just heat it up in the oven or microwave. Each seasoned piece (about 3.5 oz.) has 110 calories, 1.5g fat, 230mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, and 24g protein (POINTS® value 2*). Check the freezer aisle for this poultry ASAP.
Lucini Italia Gourmet Pouch Sauces - Such a smart idea -- that's the first thought we had when these showed up at the HG HQ. The 3-serving pouches are microwavable and can even be boiled -- which is VERY convenient. But the amazing flavor is even MORE noteworthy! These all-natural, no-sugar-added sauces come in Tuscan Marinara with Roasted Garlic, Spicy Tuscan Tomato, and Rustic Tomato Basil. Each 1/2-cup serving has 60 - 70 calories, 3 - 4.5g fat, 410 - 480mg sodium, 7g carbs, <1 - 1g fiber, 4 - 5g sugars, and 1g protein (POINTS® value 1 - 2*). Click to find them in stores or just buy 'em online!

P.F. Chang's Double Pan-Fried Noodles Combo - Imagine a plate of greasy egg noodles, fried in oil 'til crisp. Now add beef, chicken, shrimp, AND pork. This can't end well. Not only does this dish contain a horrific 1,820 calories and 84g fat, but it also has 7,690mg sodium!!! Even though this thing supposedly serves four, those stats are still nuts. Make our So Low Mein w/ Chicken instead...
Chevys Crab & Shrimp Quesadilla - HOW is it that this seafood-stuffed item has more calories and fat than a quesadilla made with pork? INSANITY! These quesadillas are made of giant white-flour tortillas, cream sauce, cheese, guacamole, sour cream... and some shrimp and crab. The total? 1,790 calories and 126 fat grams. ACK!
The Cheesecake Factory Pasta Carbonara with Chicken - We've called out crazy restaurant carbonaras before, and we're glad CSPI caught this absurdly heavy version. A serving has more than 2,200 calories and 80 grams of saturated fat -- that's not even the total fat count! Our version is WAAAAY lighter. P.S. Click here for our Cheesecake Factory survival guide!
