Here are HG's latest and greatest food finds... 
Gardenburger California Burger Veggie Patties

(1 patty: 90 calories, 3.5g fat, 380mg sodium, 12g carbs, 2g fiber, 1g sugars, 3g protein = 2 Points)


We need to come clean. We've got a thing for Gardenburgers (we like some more than others -- see our review for proof). Well, we're FLIPPING over this brand-new addition to GB's line. Quite frankly, these California Burgers with Omega 3s taste a lot like the ones by our old friend Dr. Praeger (and we happen to love those), only without all the extra grease (the part we don't love so much). And these patties actually hold their shape, unlike the ones from the good doc (yeah, something else that bugs us about Dr. P's patties). These have also got tons of gorgeous veggies popping out all over the place... and Omega 3s. Yay! These are our latest veggie crush -- and they're as close to perfection as a veggie burger can be. Heads up! These are so new they're not even up on GB's website yet, but TRUST US they're worth seeking out!

 

Vertigo Candy & Chocolate Flavored Pops

(1 pop: 80 calories, 3g fat, 10mg sodium, 14g carbs, 0g fiber, 11g sugars, 0g protein = 2 Points)

These lollipops should win the award for most creative candy in the universe (yes, we know such an award doesn't actually exist, but it should). Here's the deal. One side of each Vertigo pop is milk chocolate, while the other side is hard candy. The two meet up back-to-back to form the coolest, most unique (and delicious) item the candy world has ever seen! These pops come in three flavors -- Chocolate Caramel (yum), Chocolate Cookies & Cream (yum-er), and Chocolate Strawberry (yum-est!). And we're burying the lead here, people, because each of these sweet critters has just 80 calories and 3 grams of fat. Yeah, they're candy and we're not going to pretend they're healthy in any way, but we LOVE 'em lots and think they're the ultimate in movie and/or TV snacking. Find these at stores like Wal-Mart, Bed Bath & Beyond, Safeway and Kmart -- or buy 'em online.

 

Crispy Green Crispy Pineapples

(1 bag: 36 calories, 0g fat, 1mg sodium, 8.5g carbs, <1g fiber, 7g sugars, <1g protein = 1 Point)


We've been fans of Crispy Green's light & crispy freeze-dried fruit snacks for a while now. They have no fat or cholesterol, they're all-natural with no pits or skin, they have 40 calories or less a serving and they taste GREAT. What more can you ask for? Ok, maybe a new flavor every now and then. That's where PINEAPPLE comes in! Until now we've spent our days dreaming about the Crispy Apricots and Peaches, but now our hearts belong to you, Crispy Pineapple snacks! Try these crushed and mixed into your oatmeal, as an ice cream or yogurt topping, or simply popped straight out of the bag. Freeze-dried fruit has never been so exciting!

 

Thou Shall Snack Latke Crisps, Original Flavor

(1 oz: 100 calories, 1g fat, 490mg sodium, 22g carbs, 1g fiber, 1g sugars, 2g protein = 2 Points)


Here's a super-unique, fun and completely tasty snack sensation. Hungry People, we present to you -- Latke Crisps. So right now many of you are probably thinking, "What the heck is a latke?" A latke is a traditional Jewish fried pancake made of shredded potatoes, egg and onion. Based on an original latke recipe, these crisps have all the flavor and fun of real latkes -- without all the grease, fat and calories! Brilliant! We have to warn you -- they're hard to find in stores (click here to search), but can easily be ordered online. And worry not; you can enjoy these all year long -- whether you're Jewish or not!
