Spotted On Shelves...
Boca Meatless Ground Crumbles in a Re-sealable Bag - Ground-beef-style
soy crumbles are an HG staple. And we enjoy Boca's version as well as the
kind by Morningstar Farms. Boca's are lower in fat, but M. Star's are easier
to find. Well, Boca has just come out with new packaging for their ground
beef substitute -- instead of boxes of 2-serving pouches labeled Meatless
Ground Burger, Boca's stuff now comes in re-sealable multi-serving bags
labeled Meatless Ground Crumbles. Granted, it's a slow day in HG-land when
we're super-excited about this, but WE ARE! YAY, BOCA! WOOHOO! (And
yes, we hope things pick up around here soon.)
Jack Link's Premium Cuts 50 Calorie Snack Packs - You know we get all
giddy over jerky. And yeah, it's pretty low in fat and calories as is. But these
new 50-calorie pouches are PERFECT. Each pack of Original Beef Jerky has
0.5g fat, 2g carbs, 0g fiber, and 9g protein (POINTS® value 1*). We hear the
50-cal packs also come in Teriyaki Nuggets and Prime Rib Tender Cuts.
These packs give you just the right amount to satisfy plus they have that
protein boost you need. Embrace jerky, people!
Gerber Graduates Fruit Twists - Yup, on occasion we like to snack on fruit
snacks meant for babies and toddlers. We even use the stuff in our recipes
sometimes. Make fun of us, point and laugh behind our backs... do what you
need to do to get it out of your system. This stuff is GOOD and we're NOT
giving it up. Enjoy these new Twizzler-ish items in two flavors -- Strawberry
& Grape and Apple & Strawberry. Each Twist contains 35 calories, 0g fat, 8g
carbs, 0g fiber, and 0g protein (POINTS® value 1*). We're (goo goo) gaga
Coming Soon to a Supermarket Near You...
Psssst! We've heard about some new stuff that's on the way. And we're not
great at keeping secrets...
Hostess 100 Calorie Packs, Twinkie Bites - No, they aren't any "healthier"
than regular Twinkies, but these new 100-calorie packs of Twinkie Bites are
going to make A LOT of humans happy. This much we know. You get three
cute little Twinkie cakes (they're round!) per pack for just 100 calories and
2.5g fat (POINTS® value 2*). Sadly, there's no real fiber to speak of (<1g),
but what did you expect? THEY'RE TWINKIES! Look for 'em starting in
Secret Frappuccino Light Drinks - If you're a fan of Starbucks' ready-to-drink
line of beverages, you'll be happy to hear that the folks at The 'Bucks are
planning to add a bunch of new ones to their current line-up. Unfortunately,
they're being VERY hush-hush about these drinks. All we know is that the
new drinks will be light, Frappuccino-y, and on shelves next year. Currently,
SB's only low-cal Fraps on shelves are their Mocha Lite Frappuccinos. We
look forward to seeing what they come up with. How's about a 100-calorie
version of your Caramel Frappuccino, Starbucks? We DARE you to make one

Name That Sandwich and WIN! - Judging by the hundreds of love letters that
have poured in about Arnold Select Sandwich Thins, we know that HG
subscribers are OBSESSED with the cool new bread items. That's why we
HAD to tell you about this fun contest the peeps at Arnold are running. If you
come up with a unique name for sandwiches made on their Sandwich Thins --

Fresh Veggies for Every American - The makers of V8 have teamed up with
Feeding America (the organization formally known as America's Second
Harvest) to get more veggies to more people. The vegetable juice makers
will donate more than 30 million servings of fresh veggies to local food banks
across the U.S. during the next six months, and you can help support them
by buying V8 products. Instead of knocking yourself in the head and
saying, "Wow, I could've had a V8," HAVE ONE! Click here for the scoop.
A new study suggests that collagen proteins found in chicken and chicken
soup could actually lower blood pressure. Unfortunately, the incredibly high
levels of sodium found in most canned chicken soup are likely to counteract
this benefit. So if you have high blood pressure, avoid the canned stuff. And

want to check out Elations, a 30-calorie fruit-flavored drink that has been
known to help reduce joint pain for the millions who suffer from it. We hear
you can make smoothies, Italian ices and desserts with it! ***From now until
November 11th, Dunkin' Donuts is offering small iced or hot lattes for 99
cents during weekdays between 2pm and 5pm. Just remember to order
yours LITE! ***Want free samples of Splenda No Calorie Sweetener Flavors
for Coffee or Splenda No Calorie Sweetener with Fiber? Click here and you
can get TWO packets, while supplies last. Use 'em in coffee, cereal, or
oatmeal, or just down 'em straight. (We're KIDDING. We do NOT really
recommend eating this stuff straight out of the packet!) That's all we've got.
