Holy Chip! Check These Out...
Desperately seeking new guilt-free ways to crunch? Look what WE found!
Buffalo Nickel Wingers - These all-natural, no-guilt snacks are shaped like
chicken drummies and come in all sorts of snazzy flavors and heat levels,
but they're made from potatoes. Check out the flavors (in order of least
spicy to hottest) -- No Bull Barbeque, Honey Mustard Horsepower, Nacho
Chilichanga, Caribbean Zing, and Fiery Buffalo Bleu. Chew on 25 Wingers for
120 calories, 4g fat, 19g carbs, 1g fiber, and 1g protein (POINTS® value 3*).
They get an A+ in originality, taste, serving size, AND ADORABLENESS! We
are in LOVE! Click here to check out their site and here to buy 'em online.
Coming Soon! Michael Season's Natural Gourmet Baked Multigrain Chips -
Somehow several bags of these showed up at the HG HQ. These SunChip
clones (with much better stats!) are addictively delicious! In Original,
Cheddar, and Honey Chipotle, they're a MUST-TRY. Eat about 18 - 19 of 'em
for 110 calories, 4g fat, 19g carbs, 3g fiber, and 2g protein (POINTS® value
2*). The all-natural snacks are so new that they're not on store shelves or
for sale online yet. Want a chance at a sneak-chew? Enter our 600,000th
Subscriber Contest! Winners AND a few random runners-up will each get a
bag of these chips as part of their prize! Woohoo!
Stuff You Didn't Know You Needed...
USB Flash Drives for Foodies - Flash drives ROCK. They hold tons of stuff
and make it super-simple to transfer files from computer to computer. Now
you can enjoy the usefulness of the flash drive and the joy of fake food
(pizza and sushi!) AT THE SAME EXACT TIME. And look -- they're on sale!!!
Precision Spoon Scale - This handy kitchen gadget does a lot but, best of all,
it'll help keep ice cream portions in check. Now you'll be able to WEIGH your
chilly dessert as you spoon it out, making sure your dish contains the perfect
amount. No cheating!
Toast Bandages - Here's a random one. If you avoid starchy white bread
(like many of us over here), you can get your fluffy carb fix from these boo
boo bandages. Toast not your thing? Cover your cuts and bruises in bacon,
pickles, or beef. Yummy! Just click here to select your style.
A recent study asked participants to rank 62 foods on various emotional
responses -- happiness, excitability, pleasantness, etc. And the results are in!
The foods with the highest overall scores are ice cream, chocolate, and
cookies. The ones with the lowest overall scores are tofu, soy, and avocados.
Is anyone out there really surprised by these findings?! And why on Earth
are avocados so unpopular? GUACAMOLE ROCKS! ***Starting next year,
Coca-Cola Co. is going to be plastering calorie counts for all of its beverages
in the US right on the front of the packages. YOWSA! Hopefully this will stop
the masses from downing tens of thousands of calories' worth of sugary
beverages each week. ***Too lazy to cook low-cal meals? Check out
Freshology's GETSLIM Meal Delivery Plan. The company's rapidly expanding
and putting together some yummy-sounding menus, peeps! ***A new study
suggests that grapes may help lower blood pressure and improve heart
function. This is big news over here because we are grape-obsessed! Click
for more on that. And WOOHOO! ***Dreyer's/Edy's Limited Edition Slow
Churned Pumpkin, Egg Nog, and Peppermint light ice creams are on sale
now. Go get 'em!!! ***Okay, we're about to sign off -- just wanted to remind
you yet again to tell ALL your friends about HG for chances to win some
fantastic prizes as part of our 600,000th Subscriber Contest. That's all we've
got. HG out!
