Spotted on Shelves...
Barry's Bakery Mini Peaks Tubs - Hey, meringue-lovers... check this out. You can eat 100 of these adorable little melt-in-your-mouth treats for just 100 calories. That's ONE itty-bitty calorie per cookie (for those of you who aren't so good with math). And they come in different flavors and all sorts of beauteous colors! We've mentioned these before, but now they're in new tubs, so here they are again. Weeeee!
Tastykake 100 Calorie Cookie Sticks - Tastykake is super-famous in parts of the U.S., but virtually unknown in other parts of the country. Now their 100-calorie cookie bars (in fudge, chocolate chip, and oatmeal raisin) are catching the attention of people all across the nation. Don't know where or how to find these kooky Cookie Sticks? Click here to order select flavors online.
McCormick Seafood Steamers - OK, these ROCK. In Lemon Garlic and Garlic Butter, these pouches make it super-simple to turn a boring fish dish into something FABULOUS. And they have just 25 - 40 calories per serving. Amazing!!!
The Scariest Breakfast in the World
With Halloween just a week away, we thought it might be an appropriate time to warn you about one of the most FREAKISHLY FRIGHTENING breakfasts we've ever seen. Hardee's (known for horrendously fattening fast food) has introduced the Country Breakfast Burrito. It certainly sounds innocent enough (almost dainty in a way, no?), but this massive loser of a morning meal consists of TWO (yeah, um, two!) egg omelettes stuffed with bacon, ham, sausage and cheddar cheese, plus hash browns, MORE cheese, and gravy -- all crammed into a ginormous flour tortilla. That crazy AM wrap clocks in at 920 calories and 60 grams of fat!!! Sheesh... what's next? A humungous biscuit stuffed with sour cream, ribs and cheesecake? For some decadent b-fast choices that are actually sensible, click here, here, or here.
Warning: Dangerous Burrito Zone!!!
Stuff You Didn't Know You Didn't Needed...
Skull Cupcakes, Anyone? - Oooooh, if you order NOW, you may be able to get this creepy pan in time for Halloween. If you use Vitalicious brownie and chocolate muffin mixes, at least the nutritionals won't be scary. Guilt-free skull cupcakes are COOL!
Sayonara, Soggy Cereal - This Eatmecrunchy cereal bowl is designed to keep your cereal from getting all mushy. It releases the milk slowly, as you eat, so it doesn't completely drown your flakes (or puffs, or squares, etc.). Cute, but we kinda like our cereal a little on the soggy side. Maybe that makes us weird... FYI, this British bowl comes to about 8 bucks plus shipping.
Perfect Pasta Portions - Need a little help figuring out how much pasta is in a serving (or 2, 3 or 4 servings)? This handy little spaghetti doser will help you cook EXACTLY the right amount. Don't be surprised when you see how few strands are in a serving though (it's a little depressing).
Guess what?! We've heard rumors from VERY reliable sources that Starbucks will introduce a SUGAR-FREE Gingerbread Latte this year. Expect it to start popping up within a month or so. Yay! ***Healthy coffee?! The world's first folic-acid-fortified coffee is on the way, peeps! SPAVA, a gourmet coffee line sold in select markets across the U.S., will be adding folic acid to their entire line of "wellness" coffee. The aim of the coffee line is to improve physical and mental health, memory, immunity, metabolism, and more. Click here for the full 411! ***Keep an eye out for South Beach Diet branded vending machines that'll be packed with all sorts of better-for-you snacks from Kraft. Soon you may be able to nab Crystal Light, Sugar Free Jell-O, and South Beach Diet Wraps from your friendly neighborhood vending machines. How cool is that?! ***More cartoony veggies, fruits, and other nutritious sides are on the way, in an effort to keep kids chewing healthy stuff. This time it'll be Mickey, Pluto, Donald and Goofy who'll appear on packages of Disney Garden foods. We've seen what these packs will look like, and they're pretty cute & creative -- Mickey-shaped bowls, lots of different food combos, etc. VERY cool! That's all we've got. HG out!
Hot for the Holidays!
CHEW ON THIS: Today, October 22nd, is National Nut Day. Let's celebrate with almonds, cashews, pistachios, and that weird fellow down the street who wears his underwear over his pants.
