Free Cream Cheese Inside!

Kraft Bagel-fuls - Dream of eating cream cheese and bagels for breakfast but can't be trusted around giant bagels and tubs of cream cheese (AHHHH!)? Check out these on-the-go offerings -- they look like Twinkies, but are actually bagels filled with Philadelphia cream cheese! Each one has 200 calories or less, 4 - 6g fat, and 2 - 3g fiber (POINTS® value 3 - 4*). They come in Original (plain bagel with plain cream cheese), Cinnamon (cinnamon and brown sugar bagel with cinnamon cream cheese), Whole Grain (whole grain bagel with plain cream cheese), Strawberry (plain bagel with strawberry cream cheese), and Chive (plain bagel with chive cream cheese). They're good, people (especially the Cinnamon)! Look for them in the freezer aisle.
Mister Salty Milk Chocolate Covered Pretzels 100 Calorie Packs - OMG! We have received a zillion emails from people who have spotted these chocolatey pretzel treats, and we are officially jealous because they're nowhere to be found here in Los Angeles. Mister Salty himself has informed us that each pack has 3.5g fat and 0g fiber -- POINTS® value 2*. (BTW, we're kidding about him informing us personally... he's a pretzel dressed like a sailor, and as far as we know he doesn't even speak.)
Peter Pan Whipped Creamy Peanut Butter - Okay, this isn't exactly a NEW product, but it seems that Peter P is FINALLY pushing this lightened up PB. We're THRILLED 'cuz it has fewer calories and fat grams than the regular stuff -- a 2-tbsp. serving has 140 calories, 12g fat, and 2g fiber (POINTS® value 3*). And it is VERY yummy.
There's lots of Hungry Girl stuff happening this week, so we're buzzing about ourselves (hope that's okay!).
HG Tour Chatter & Important Date Change - As you may or may not know, the HG book is on pre-sale right now, and the official tour dates were announced last week. There's been a change in the Los Angeles book-signing date. Instead of competing with the American Idol finale, we've moved the LA event to May 30th at 7PM (we wanted to watch Idol anyway!). Click here for all the book tour details. And remember to tell us if you're coming (DO IT!), so we can make sure we have enough freebies on hand.
Book Sneak Peek!- OK, the OFFICIAL website for Hungry Girl: Recipes and Survival Strategies for Guilt-Free Eating in the Real World is FINALLY up! It ROCKS because you can see info on all the book's chapters, including names, photos and nutritional info (with Weight Watchers POINTS® values*!) for ALL the recipes! Click here for this first TRUE sneak peek at the book.
HG Emails Follow-Up - So, the other day we made a sassy comment about how cucumbers are better than celery. This caused quite a stir, and dozens of you wrote in trying to get to the bottom of that comment. We merely meant that cucumbers TASTE better than celery. That's all. Sorry if we offended any die-hard celery-chewers out there (but admit it, we're right!). And last Wednesday, we featured a Q&A about leftover ingredients, and a gazillion of you wrote in suggesting that people freeze small portions of certain leftovers by placing them in ice cube trays. BRILLIANT!!!!!
Special HG Buzz Alert!!!
Wendy's SW Caesar... It's BACK!
New Food News!
Wendy's Southwest Chicken Caesar Salad - You haven't seen this item on the Wendy's menu since 2003, but for a limited time only (from now through May!) the SW Chicken Caesar will be available again. The 490-calorie, 24g-of-fat meal contains corn, black beans, chicken, and more. But if you ditch the croutons and fatty dressing, the thing'll only contain 270 calories and 6g fat (POINTS® value 5*) -- then use your own fat-free Caesar dressing (stash some in the fridge) or go with Wendy's FF French. We have to admit, we didn't realize this salad was ever gone. But we recently tried it, and it's good. So grab one, for old times' sake...
