Hungry Girl Today: 09.22.08
Spotted on Shelves...
Fiber One Toaster Pastries - We know we've "buzzed" about these before,
but the first time we wrote about them, NO ONE could find the things -- well
now they're EVERYWHERE, and we are getting dozens of emails a day
about 'em. If you love Pop-Tarts, these are a must-check-out for you! In
Strawberry, Brown Sugar Cinnamon, Blueberry, and Chocolate, each pastry
has 190 calories, 4.5g fat, 36g carbs, 5g fiber, and 4g protein (POINTS®
value 3*). These have fewer calories than most Pop-Tarts (a few have the
same cal count), more fiber than any Pop-Tart (even the Whole Grain ones),
and a lower POINTS® value* than any Pop-Tart. Not bad!
Nabisco MUNCH Packs Jet-Puffed Mini Marshmallows - Ooooooh, 90-calorie
snack packs in original, ChocoMallows, and StrawberryMallows?! Sign us up!
Each pack has 0g fat, 22 - 23g carbs, 0g fiber, and 0 - <1g protein
(POINTS® value 2*). Not sure where the "munching" really comes in here
(marshmallows are noise-free!), but "SQUISH Packs" doesn't quite have the
same ring to it...
Jell-O Sugar Free Pudding Snacks in Dark Chocolate Raspberry - Truth be
told, we're not huge fans of dark chocolate (or even raspberry), but we love
pudding, so we gave this stuff a chance. WOW! IT IS FANTASTIC! Want a 60-
calorie chocolate fix? Here it is, with 1.5g fat, 14g carbs, 1g fiber, and 2g
protein (POINTS® value 1*). Don't miss this one, pudding fans!

Wanna hear something fun? The HG-inspired 100-calorie packs of Justin's
Maple Almond Butter are now available at Starbucks! 1. GO JUSTIN! 2. We
are SO glad we convinced Justin to make these. Woohoo! ***Do you love
beans so much that you'd be willing to write a song about them? A song
BETTER than the old "Beans, beans, the musical fruit..." one? Apparently,
some peeps in the bean industry want to correct that old chant, since beans
actually belong to the veggie family. If you're still reading this, click here to
find out more about a fun contest -- Drew Lachey is involved... you could win
$5,000 and a trip to NYC... It's pretty cool! ***Whole Foods has revamped its
