New 100-Calorie Snacks to LOVE!
(Soon to Be) Spotted On Shelves...
Hostess 100 Calorie Packs, Streusel Muffins - If you LOVE Hostess's 100-cal packs of creme-filled cupcakes, you will PASS out when you see these Streusel Muffins in Blueberry, Banana, and Cinnamon (POINTS® value 1* per pack). There are three mini muffins with crumb topping in each pack. We've tried them all and think only the Cinnamon Streusel ones are actually worth chewing (and passing out over), but serious fans of sweet blueberry and banana baked goods may like the others a lot, too. Coming soon to a grocery store near you!
Yoplait Fiber One Creamy Nonfat Yogurt - Yup, it's true. F1 yogurt is on the way. And no, it doesn't have crunchy cereal bits in it. This creamy fat-free yogurt comes in 4-oz. cups with just 80 calories each. It tastes GREAT ('cuz it comes from Yoplait), and each li'l cup packs in 5 grams of fiber (POINTS® value 1*). In Peach, Strawberry, Vanilla, and Key Lime Pie, it'll hit the dairy case at a store near you very soon!
Fiber One Chewy Bars, Oats & Caramel- If you're a fan of the chocolate and peanut butter versions of these bars, you will fall in LOVE with the newest flavor. We've had a sneak chew, and we're hooked! Just like the other flavors, this one's got GREAT stats (140 calories, 3.5g fat, 9g fiber -- POINTS® value 2*). It'll be arriving in aisles later this month. Lucky EVERYONE!
Quaker Mini Delights in New Flavors - We're obsessed with these, so we're counting the SECONDS 'til the three new flavors of these 90-calorie packs of crispy treats (POINTS® value 2*) hit the shelves of our local supermarket later this month. Look for them in Peanut Butter, Chocolate Mint, and Caramel Drizzle. AHHHHHHHH! (That was us screaming with glee!)
Skinny Makeovers at The Bucks... and Taco Bell, Too!
The Buzz Word at The Bucks - Starbucks is gettin' all HG on us, and WE ARE PSYCHED! If there's a limit to how many words you allow yourself to say in a day, you are SO in luck. Now, instead of ordering your lattes and mochas at Starbucks by asking for sugar-free syrup, fat-free milk, and no whip, simply walk up to your favorite barista and ask him for a Skinny Latte or Skinny Mocha, and he'll know EXACTLY what you mean. All you have to do is pick your fave flavor (the Skinny Latte comes in Cinnamon Dolce, Vanilla, Hazelnut, and Caramel!). A Tall size Skinny has just 90 calories and no fat!
Taco B's Fresco Frenzy - We want to give a shout out to Taco Bell and their new & improved Fresco Menu. These nine Fresco-style items -- which contain salsa in place of cheese and sauce -- have less than NINE grams of fat and no more than 350 calories each. BTW, FOUR of those items have 180 calories or less! Check it out. You go, Bell!
Calorie-Slashed Coffee... Yay!
Stuff You Didn't Know You Needed...
Chocolate Coasters - WOW, these coasters definitely look good enough to eat. But don't bite 'em. They're made of rubber, which may have fewer calories than chocolate, but doesn't taste nearly as good. These are SOOOOOO much fun and will look super-cute anywhere!
Munchlers - Insulated lunch totes shaped like zoo animals?! Does life get any better than this? It does! These bags open up and can serve as mini place mats (germaphobes rejoice!). Stuff these cute 'n colorful critters with your favorite guilt-free snacks and you'll be the envy of everyone at the office. Either that or they'll simply point and laugh.
ForkChops - Ever get so frustrated with chopsticking your sushi (yep, we turned it into a verb) that you want to stab it and stuff it in your face? These ForkChops will help. They have a knife and fork on one end, in case you give up and want to eat your Asian food with some American flare (that's our nice way of poking fun at the spazzy!). They also come in an insane array of colors, including fancy glittery ones. We LOVE these, and, truth be told, we're not as proficient as we'd like to be with chopsticks.

CHEW ON THIS: Today, January 7th, is National Tempura Day. Tempura = fried Japanese food. This is not a holiday we should be actively celebrating, people!
