***ATTENTION TEXT-ONLY HG SUBSCRIBERS (this means YOU!): Since only
a tiny fraction of our audience receives our emails in text-only form, and the
emails look so much better designed in HTML, we have decided to stop
sending out the text-only versions of Hungry Girl newsletters. This change
will happen in the very near future. Keep an eye out for the HTML versions in
your inbox... coming soon!***
This is the text version of Hungry Girl.

Butter Filled Milk Chocolate - If you're crazy about chocolate & PB, add these

Pumpkin Shortage: ACK!
Our inbox has been FLOODED with emails lately about the fact that it is
nearly impossible to find the regular 15-oz. cans of Libby's 100% Pure
Pumpkin on shelves. The HUGE cans are more readily available, but even
those are becoming scarce. Where, oh where, is our beloved pumpkin?! HG
subscribers (and one very concerned bunny) wanna know. We contacted our
pals at Libby's (THE pumpkin people) to get the scoop, and here's what we
unearthed. Due to bad weather, many of last year's pumpkins were deemed
unacceptable, and so we're NOW feeling the effects of those unfortunate
circumstances. The good news? Libby's promises to have normal-sized cans
of pumpkin back on shelves by late September. Whew! In the meantime,
scoop up those ginormous cans of the orange stuff before they're all gone,
too. DO IT!!! Then whip up our Surprise, It's Pumpkin! Enchiladas, Yum Yum
Brownie Muffins, and Complete & Utter Oatmeal INSANITY. Mmmmm! P.S.
The 15-oz. can is equal to 1 3/4 cups. (Now you know!)
HG's 800,000 Subscriber Contest: Spread the Word and WIN BIG!!!
Seems like only yesterday we celebrated hitting the half-million mark (it was
actually back in July of last year), and now we're fast approaching 800,000
subscribers! Since we attribute all of our success to YOU, the faithful
subscribers, we want to celebrate this monumental occasion by (yes, yes,
good news coming!) GIVING AWAY FANTASTIC PRIZES! Here's how it works:
Just tell everyone you know (who might be interested!) to sign up for HG's
daily emails and put YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS in the "How did you hear about
Hungry Girl?" section. If one of those people is our 800,000th subscriber, you
and that friend will EACH win -- brace yourselves -- A YEAR'S SUPPLY OF
VITATOPS AND A YEAR'S SUPPLY OF POPCHIPS. That's right... read it again
if you have to. POPCHIPS. And VITATOPS. A full year's supply! PLUS, we'll
be paying CLOSE attention to who's telling tons of friends to sign up, and
some of those people will win HG swag (like our limited-edition lunch totes
and elusive tour tees!), guilt-free snacks, and exciting mystery prizes! Don't
miss out... tell THE WORLD about HG, and you could soon find yourself
making room in your freezer and pantry for all those Vitas and Popchips!
(Don't worry; they won't send them all at once!)
Do fast walkers live longer than slow walkers? Maybe! Results of several
long-term studies found that those who walk at a speed of about 3.1 miles
per hour or faster were more than twice as likely to be alive after 10 years
than those who walk at 0.9 miles per hour or slower. So speed it up!
***Score one for diet soda! For the first time ever, Mountain Dew is
introducing a new flavor that will ONLY be available in a diet version. Diet
Mountain Dew UltraViolet is now in stores, but only for a limited time. So if
citrus soda spiked with a juicy berry burst sounds good to you, seek out this
pretty purple stuff STAT. ***Attention, green tea drinkers! Did you know that
adding a squeeze of citrus to your tea could boost the amount of free-radical
fighters your body can actually absorb? Click here for more on that. ***Get
ready for the next wave of sampling -- Peel 'n Taste! SunnyD is the first
brand to test this new technology, which allows consumers to taste a product
flavor by licking an edible film strip, right in the supermarket. Coolio! It's
currently only at Food Lion stores, but we're hoping to see it in more markets
soon. That's all we've got. HG out!
