Mann's Healthy Snacks On The Go! - The veggie masters over at Mann's

ranch dip. These each have 2 servings per container, and most have 50 - 70
calories, 3 - 3.5g fat, and 1 - 2g fiber (POINTS® value 1*) per serving. (One
comes with raisins and has 150 calories per serving.) PERFECT! Check out

Dreyer's/Edy's Limited Edition Fun Flavors - Exciting news, frozen-treat fans!
FOUR of these new Fun Flavors have been spotted sporting some very
impressive nutritional stats, even though they're not labeled "low-fat"
or "light". The Dulce de Leche Caramel, Banana Split, Summer Peach Pie,
and Nestlé Vanilla Sandwich ones each have 120 - 130 calories and 3 - 4g fat
(POINTS® value 3*) per half-cup serving. Yee-haaaaa!
Insane Snack Alert! Insane Snack Alert!
Listen up, snack-chewers! We've got a crazy-amazing product find for you...
About a week and a half ago, we started hearing from subscribers about 100-
calorie Newtons Fruit Crisps. People were RAVING about them, so we ran out
and scoured supermarket shelves for these things. OMG, they are INSANE!
We are singling them out and giving them their own story because, quite
frankly, they deserve it. We say these Fruit Crisps are the most unique 100-
calorie item we've seen in 2008 (okay, possibly EVER). And we LOVE them
(almost too much!). Now for our description... Each pack contains TWO large,
flakey, crispy, fruit-filled rectangles of deliciousness that taste like the love
child of a McDonald's baked pie and a Pop-Tart. Y-U-M! Both flavors -- Mixed
Berry and Apple Cinnamon -- ROCK! Each 100-cal twin pack has just 2g fat
and a POINTS® value of 2*. Run (don't walk, jog or skip) to your local
market and buy them. And if you can't find these things, DEMAND them.
Trust us on this one, PLEEEEEEEEEASE!

to watch the alarming (and sad) video of Lisa's beloved bottoms being
whisked away by evil strangers at an Encino, CA cleaners. And if you

Guess that "Blossom" isn't so "Awesome" after all! After years of serving the
over-caloried freakish onion monstrosity, Chili's recently decided to yank its
Awesome Blossom off the menu. Good thing we featured our own HG-ized
version of it last week. Woohoo! ***Hey, beer-drinkers.
You'll be happy to know that the limited availability MGD 64 (extra light beer
from Miller with 64 calories per 12-oz. bottle) did so well in test markets, it's
going national THIS FALL. Yay! ***A recent study suggests that more than
half the population eats fast food once a week, and 20% of Americans eat it
at least every other day. This is a reminder to keep checking fast food
websites for nutritional info so you can make smarter choices (and our
survival guides help, too!). That's all we've got. HG out!
