So Delicious; So Aptly Named!
Spotted on Shelves...
So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk Beverage - Pay attention, because we have the next great milk swap here. This stuff is INCREDIBLE. It isn't heavy, high-calorie coconut milk -- it's TOTALLY light and low in calories. A cup of the dairy-free, all-natural stuff has only 50 calories, 5g fat, 15mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, and 1g protein (PointsPlus® value 1*). It comes in refrigerated cartons and shelf-stable boxes. FIND it and TRY it... in smoothies, with cereal, and more!
Dole Real Fruit Bites - If you like snacking on yogurt-covered raisins, prepare to have the snack bar raised. These are chunks of dried fruit -- Apple, Pineapple, and Mango -- covered in a yogurty coating and sprinkled with toasty whole-grain oats. WOW! A single-serving pouch has 80 calories, 1.5 - 2g fat, 30 - 40mg sodium, 15 - 17g carbs, 0 - <1g fiber, 11 - 12g sugars, and 0 - <1g protein (PointsPlus® value 2*). We can't wait to chew 'em!
Cream of Wheat, Cinnabon Flavor - Want hot cereal in a hurry that tastes like a pastry from the mall food court? Of course you do! Each packet of this brand-new merger of a morning meal has 130 calories, 0g fat, 170mg sodium, 29g carbs, 1g fiber, 14g sugars, and 3g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). Pssst... Check out the $2-off coupon offer. Nice!
Spread the Word... Pumpkin's Back!
You can quit moping around, because the pumpkin shortage is a thing of the past! After being in low supply for almost a year now (and what a sad, un-orange year it was), canned pumpkin is expected to populate shelves once again. The peeps at Nestlé -- parent company to the pumpkin elite, a.k.a. Libby's -- say that this year's crop is healthy and good to go. So let's celebrate with MORE pumpkin news! Starbucks' seasonal pumpkin-kissed coffee drinks are back, but order carefully: Get a Tall Nonfat Pumpkin Spice Latte without whipped cream for 200 calories and no fat, or try a Tall Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino Light Blended Beverage for 120 cals and half a gram of fat. Looking for MORE seasonal coffee finds? Check out Dunkin' Donuts' delicious (and virtually calorie-free) packaged coffee in limited-edition holiday flavors and brew it at home -- especially helpful for those of us on the West Coast. (Come to LA, DD!) Flavors include Vanilla Nut, Pumpkin Spice, and Mocha Mint. YUM! We're getting into that autumn spirit already...

Think Pink for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
If it feels like everywhere you go, you're seeing PINK, you're right -- October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and MANY companies are helping to spread awareness and raise money for related charities. Panera Bread will donate a portion of the proceeds from sales of its Pink Ribbon Bagels to various breast cancer charities -- Los Angeles, Houston, and New Jersey are among the areas that've announced plans to participate. And a product we love, the Fitbook journal, is going all rosy too with the launch of Fitbook PINK -- $4 from the sale of each pink-accented diet-n-exercise journal will be shared equally by the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade and MyLifeLine.org. Frito-Lay plans to donate $1 million to Susan G. Komen for the Cure -- be on the lookout for snacks like Baked! chips sporting the pink-ribbon style. And last but not least, start collecting those pink lids on your Yoplait Light containers -- check out the awesome "Save Lids to Save Lives" promotion. And for tons more info on breast cancer awareness, visit pinkribbon.org.

Healthy Choice is lowering the sodium in its most popular soups to 390mg a serving -- just in time for the cooler, soup-friendly weather!
