Hungry Girl Today: 06.26.08
We've squeezed, spooned, squirted and swallowed some new food finds. Now
we're blabbing all about 'em...
Justin's Nut Butter 100 Calorie Squeeze Packs
PER SERVING (1 packet, 1 tbsp.): 100 calories, 8g fat, 35mg sodium, 3 - 4g
carbs, 1 - 2g fiber, 1 - 2g sugars, 3 - 4g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
Oh, Justin! We've had the hots for your peanut and almond butters FOREVER.
And, as calorie-aware humans who LOVE the stuff, we begged and begged
you to shove some of it into portion-controlled 100-calorie packs. And VOILA,
that's exactly what you did! YOU ROCK... and so do your pre-portioned nut
butter packets!!!! These are available in two flavors -- Honey Peanut Butter
Blend and Maple Almond Butter. Single-serving packets of peanut and
almond butter are SO COOL. And even though the serving size isn't huge, at
least you know EXACTLY how much you're eating. Just remember to squeeze
every last drop from these pouches, people!
Jell-O Sugar Free Rice Pudding Snacks, Crème Brulée
PER SERVING (1 container): 70 calories, 2g fat, 180mg sodium, 13g carbs,
0g fiber, 0g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
We were SO excited when we found the new sugar-free rice pudding snacks
from Jell-O on the shelf at our local market, because we love, LOVE rice
pudding. But we are TOTAL rice pudding snobs (and by that we mean we
KNOW no one can compete with the peeps at Kozy Shack, who make the
world's BEST rice pudding in regular AND no-sugar-added varieties!). Still,
we were willing to give the Jell-O stuff a whirl. We'd be lying if we told you
we were impressed with the Original flavor of these Sugar Free Rice Pudding
Snacks offered by Jell-O -- it's not even a little bit impressive in the flavor
OR texture departments. BUT the good news is the Crème Brulée version is
GREAT! It's a bit gelatinous, so you need to mix it well before digging in. But
once it's stirred-up, the result is a creamy rice pudding with a nice light
caramel kiss. So, if you're looking for straight up rice pudding, stick with
Kozy Shack's No Sugar Added version. But if you're open to enjoying some
with a crème brulée twist, check this stuff out. With a 70-calorie price tag, it's
a total steal.
Fiber One Chewy Bars, Oats & Apple Streusel
PER SERVING (1 bar): 130 calories, 2g fat, 120mg sodium, 31g carbs, 9g
fiber, 11g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
YAY... new Chewy Bars from the folks at Fiber One are here! What can we
say? These guys KNOW how to get it right. All of their bars are super-
fantastic -- Oats & Chocolate (which tastes like a candy bar), Oats & Peanut
Butter (SUPER peanut buttery), Oats & Caramel (which tastes more like
butterscotch than caramel but is still amazing)... and now, their two newest
flavors, Oats & Strawberries with Almonds and Oats & Apple Streusel. While
both are great, we're focusing on the apple one for this review, because we
love apples. And great apple-flavored bars are hard to come by. Or at least
they WERE, before these things were released. So here's the scoop. These
bars are chewy, packed with fiber, and taste a lot like apple pie! They have
the PERFECT amount of apple flavor, too. They're not overly appley in that
fake way that makes it hard to breathe -- they are PERFECT. Sweet, chewy,
YUM! And with just 130 calories and 2g fat, plus 9g of fiber, you never have
to feel bad about indulging in this sweet treat.
Cool Whip Lite in a Can
PER SERVING (2 tbsp.): 15 calories, 1g fat, 0mg sodium, 2g carbs, 0g fiber,
<1g sugars, 0g protein -- POINTS® value 0*
We REALLY wanted to love the new Cool Whip Lite in an aerosol can. We're
whipped cream OBSESSED, so more options for fluffy white dessert toppings
= good times. But this stuff falls short. For starters, it is NOWHERE NEAR as
delicious as Fat Free Reddi-wip -- it tastes WAY more artificial and not nearly
as creamy. It also has three times as many calories as Fat Free Reddi-wip.
That alone should be enough for us to wrap up this review and call it a day.
But we're fair, so we'll tell you some of the GOOD stuff about sprayable Cool
Whip Lite. First of all, seeing Cool Whip in a can is exciting. It just is. And
second of all, the texture of it is slightly more impressive than Fat Free Reddi-
wip -- in other words, like the Cool Whip from a tub, this stuff isn't likely to
wilt ten seconds after it's applied to your dessert. But, as sad as it is to
admit, our favorite thing about this new reduced-cal topping is the whipped-
cream-dollop-shaped cap that it comes with (it's REALLY cute). To sum it up --
we much prefer Cool Whip Free in a tub to this stuff, and we're sticking with
Fat Free Reddi-wip for all of our squirt topping needs.
