Spotted on Shelves...
Cheesy-Good 100-Calorie Finds! - Heads up, cheese lovers! Check out the
latest 100-calorie packs exploding with cheesy goodness. Look for 100
Calorie Mini Bites Smartfood White Cheddar Cheese Popcorn (1 package =
6g fat, 1g fiber -- POINTS® value 2*) and 100 Calorie Right Bites Cheez-It in
new Extra Cheddar Party Mix (1 pouch = 3.5g fat, <1g fiber -- POINTS®
value 2*). Mmmmmmm!
Specialty Salsas from Pace - Salsa ALERT! Our spies have eyed these brand-
new Pace salsas, which we hear are popping up on shelves EVERYWHERE!
Flavors include Triple Pepper Salsa (2 tbsp. = 15 calories, 0g fat, 1g fiber),
Tequila Lime Salsa (2 tbsp. = 15 calories, 0g fat, 0g fiber), Salsa Verde (2
tbsp. = 15 calories, 0.5g fat, 0g fiber), and Pico De Gallo (2 tbsp. = 10
calories, 0g fat, 0g fiber). Those each have a POINTS® value of 0* per
serving. BTW, there's also a crazy cheese one, but it's got way more calories
and fat grams than the others. Now grab those Guiltless Gourmet chips and
Brothers-All-Natural Potato Crisps - These tasty, freeze-dried, fat-free potato
chips may just be the find of the century! In four lightly seasoned flavors --
Original (with sea salt), Szechuan & Chives, Onion & Garlic, and Black
Pepper (with sea salt) -- each portion-controlled bag has just 45 calories,
plus a gram of fiber (POINTS® value 1*). YOWZA!!! We have to admit, it
takes at least 2 bags to kick a serious chip craving -- but for 90 calories, it's
totally worth it! Find these at Costco or just order 'em online. Pssst... the
folks at Brothers-All-Natural also make freeze-dried Fruit Crisps (in a slew of
varieties), and those can be found at tons of stores including Whole Foods,
Smart & Final, Pathmark and more.
Free Stuff and Nutty Shopping News!
Check it out...
Go Nuts Shopping! - Everyone's favorite food mascot, Stach, the spokesnut
for Everybody's Nuts!, is livin' large over at the nut company's new online
store. Not only can you nab pistachios there, but you can also purchase
super-adorable Stach merch like T-shirts, pillows, hats and even toys (retro-
style 3-D Viewers with reels of Stach comics -- remember View-Masters!?!).
And, for a limited time, every order comes with a FREE 1.5-oz. bag of nuts!
Ahhhhhhhh! Stach is so cute (and generous!), we can't stand it!!!!
Stuff You Didn't Know You Needed...
Teeny Breakfast Food Keychains - There's a REALLY good chance you've
been living life WITHOUT tiny plush keychains shaped like breakfast foods.
But that COULD be because you had no idea they existed. Well, they do. And
they're CUTE. And we're in love with them (look how HAPPY that cup of
coffee is!!!). Hurry, 'cuz they're goin' fast...
Cake-sicles, Anyone?! - Want a "popsicle" guaranteed not to melt? Bake up a
batch of cake-sicles! This nonstick pan by Norpro is too cute. We recommend
filling it with our Death by Chocolate Cupcakes batter. Yummmmm!
Ice Cream Stacker! - Scoops are good, but stacks are better (so neat and
orderly!). This handy item allows you to easily collect and eject ice cream
from the container in blocks that fit perfectly on your ice cream cone. So no
more drippy cones and no more hand cramps from trying to scoop out overly
frozen ice cream (woohoo!). We recommend getting the pink one and using it
on Dreyer's/Edy's Slow Churned Light Ice Cream or Breyers Double Churn
We are SO cool. Wanna know why? We wrote about the fact that the
directions on the boxes for the Jimmy Dean D-Lights b-fast sandwiches were
slightly "off", and the J Dean folks actually listened. Thanks to the feature
in "Ask HG", they're changing the cooking instructions, starting next month.
Yay for us (and for everyone out there who will now enjoy perfectly cooked
b-fast sandwiches)! ***Nestea is getting a makeover! Look out for revamped
bottles as well as Diet Green Tea Citrus with 50% MORE antioxidants than
their pre-existing green teas. Hooray! ***A new study suggests that what a
woman eats prior to pregnancy could actually affect the sex of her baby. In a
nutshell (sorry, we've still got Stach on the brain!), researchers found that
women who consumed more calories and a wider range of nutrients were
more likely to produce males, and women who took in fewer calories and a
smaller variety of minerals and nutrients were more likely to give birth to
females. And, eating cereal supposedly increased the odds of having a boy!
Hmmmmm... not sure we believe this one, folks. But click here for more on
that. ***Here's the latest from the HG Book world... Books are still flying off
shelves (click here to nab your copy!), and the book tour rolls on! We're in
Walnut Creek today and San Francisco tomorrow (click on those cities for
details). And in case you missed some of the hoopla last week, click here for
a great story from the Rocky Mountain News, here for an ABC News segment
that aired in Chicago, and here for a video clip from Extra. That's all we've
got. HG out!
