Hungry Girl Today: 11.02.09
Spotted on Shelves...
Funky Monkey Snacks, New Flavors - Three all-new varieties of "Fruit That
Crunches!" have been flung our way by our primate pal. The DELICIOUS,
freeze-dried, no-sugar-added, all-natural fruit snacks now come in Applemon
(apple with cinnamon), MangOJ (mango with orange juice), and Pink
Pineapple (pineapple with guava). Each 1-oz. package has 90 - 110 calories,
0g fat, 23 - 26g carbs, 3g fiber, and 0 - 1g protein (POINTS® value 1 - 2*).
We love that Funky Monkey... and his little hat, too! Click, click, click for the
Cedarlane All Natural Egg White Omelettes and Breakfast Burritos - Heads
up, lovers of freezer-aisle breakfasts! Cedarlane has whipped up a handful of
nuke-n-go morning meals. Choose from three types of Egg White Omelettes:
Spinach and Mushroom; Green Chile, Cheese & Ranchero Sauce; and
Uncured Turkey Bacon, Vegetable & Cheese. Each omelette has 240 - 300
calories, 10 - 13g fat, 18 - 21g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber, and 18 - 24g protein
(POINTS® value 5 - 7*). There are ALSO two kinds of Breakfast Burritos,
filled with scrambled egg whites, vegetables, and cheese -- one also includes
uncured turkey bacon. Each burrito has 290 - 300 calories, 9g fat, 37 - 39g
carbs, <1g fiber, and 15 - 16g protein (POINTS® value 7*). Yum!!!! Click
here to track 'em down.
Trident Layers - Yup, gum has found its way into "Spotted." Why? Because
this is some of the BEST and most unique out there. Not only is it GORGEOUS
and stripey, but it also comes in two very fun flavors: Wild Strawberry +
Tangy Citrus and Green Apple + Golden Pineapple. (We're kind of obsessed
with the green apple/pineapple stuff.) And it has less than five calories per
sugar-free piece. Look for it by the checkout line at your local supermarket.
Flatbread or FATbread?
We've talked/written your ears/eyes off about the rush of flat sandwich
breads on the market: Arnold Select/Oroweat Sandwich Thins, Pepperidge
Farm Deli Flats, and now EarthGrains 100% Natural Thin Buns, which are
high in fiber and low in fat with 100 calories (POINTS® value 1*) per bun,
like the others. Well, here's a pretty important heads up for you. There's a
product out there called International Fabulous Flats Sandwich Flats. It looks
exactly the same as the others BUT... it has about 75% MORE CALORIES
than the ones by brands we love! Granted, said higher cal copycat doesn't
have HORRIBLE stats: Each Sandwich Flat has 170 - 180 calories, 1.5 - 2g
fat, 33 - 35g carbs, 5g fiber, and 6g protein (POINTS® value 3*). And it's
actually really good -- chewy, nicely spiced, and very fresh-tasting. But we're
bringing these unexpected nutritionals to your attention, so that you don't
mistake Sandwich Flats for the nearly identical, lower calorie versions. Be
careful out there!

you may have noticed some copycats (or should we say, copyCOWS)
popping up on shelves. Both Sonoma Jacks and Swiss Knight are making
wheel-packed cheese wedges with similar stats. As far as we can taste, no
one has come close to replicating the sheer PERFECTION of Laughing Cow
Light. Thoughts? ***FACT! That grinning jack-o-lantern bucket full of
Halloween leftovers could contain 200 pieces of bite-sized candy -- about
10,000 calories! Don't let the sugar-packed celebration go on until Christmas.
Ditch the candy, humans. Take it to work, give it to visitors... just let it go.
That's all we've got. HG out!
