***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!***

Hungry Girl Today: 11.9.09
Spotted on Shelves...
Betty Crocker 80 Calories Per Serving Pouch Potatoes, New Flavors - Instant
mashed potato news! Expanding on the original lineup (Roasted Garlic,
Cheddar & Sour Cream, and Homestyle Creamy Butter), our friend Betty has
released two new quick-tater flavors: Loaded Mashed and Homestyle Reds. A
2/3-cup serving (prepared) has 80 calories, 1 - 1.5g fat, 17g carbs, 3g fiber,
and 2g protein (POINTS® value 1*). DELICIOUS!!!
Arctic Zero All Natural Frozen Dessert, Paige's Pumpkin Spice - Have you
met our pal Arctic Zero? If not, it's time you introduced yourself. This stuff is
a crazy-low-calorie, fat-free swap for ice cream. And our buddies Greg and
Garrett of Arctic Z. have just cranked out this yummy new flavor that tastes
like pumpkin pie! A 1/2-cup scoop has (ready for this?) just 34 calories, 0g
fat, 10g carbs, 0g fiber, and 5g protein (POINTS® value 1*). Read the stats
again and take an "OMG!" moment. (We'll wait.) Now click here to order from
Amazon or here to see store locations.
Minute Maid Just 10 Fruit Punch Pouches - Not gonna lie: We love consuming
kid-targeted foods and refuse to apologize for it. If you find yourself
eyeballing silver pouches of sugary juice drinks, steer yourself toward these
instead. Each pouch has only 10 calories, no fat, and 2g carbs (POINTS®
value 0*). WOOHOO! Oh, don't be a baby -- TRY 'EM!
Announcing the MUST-HAVE Holiday Gift of the Year!
This is exciting, humans. We've pretty much been keeping this under wraps
for what seems like forever, but now it's time to shout it from the rooftops --
WE'VE GOT A BRAND-NEW AND COMPLETELY ADORABLE RECIPE CARD SET
COMING OUT DECEMBER 8TH!!! It's called Hungry Girl Chew the Right Thing:
Supreme Makeovers for 50 Foods You Crave, and it features dozens of the
most beloved and classic HG recipes. The cards are SO cute and colorful
(and convenient), you won't believe your eyes! (Download sample cards at
Amazon!) There are full-color photos of ALL the recipes. People, this is the
BEST, BEST, BEST gift you can buy for yourself, pals, co-workers, family
members, or all of the above this season. And if you pre-order NOW, they'll
be delivered by mid-December, giving you PLENTY of time to wrap and "gift"
them in time for the holidays. Click here RIGHT NOW to order them. Do it!
(Who has the best price? Amazon? Bamm.com? Barnes & Noble? Borders?
IndieBound? Walmart? Click on all the links to find out!!!)
You may recall that last Tuesday's email featured a FANTASTIC recipe
makeover of Sonic's Fritos Chili Cheese Wrap. Well, we got a super-nice
email from a Sonic rep (who's also a devoted HG subscriber!) letting us know
about some HG-friendly options at the drive-in chain. There are grilled
chicken options, fresh bananas (fancy!), apple slices with fat-free caramel
sauce, a massive array of diet drink choices (unsweetened flavored iced
teas, Low-Calorie Diet Cherry Limeade, etc.), and (according to some fairly
convincing data over at WebMD) the best choice, healthwise, when it comes
to fast food fries. Go, Sonic! And to all the fast food and chain restaurants --
you should know that when HG creates a Bite It!/Fight It! about one of your
fatty items, it means you've arrived!
It's the Great Pumpkin, Hungry Girl!
True, it's been a rough few months of gazing at the empty market shelves
where the canned pumpkin should be. But -- good news -- the pumpkin
shortage is OVER! One thing to note: The pumpkin you get from your cans of
Libby's may have a slightly different texture than before (a little softer).
However, that kind of thing happens with all-natural products and varies from
crop to crop. Who cares? Pumpkin is back! And can you handle MORE good
pumpkin news? Torani's seasonal Sugar Free Pumpkin Pie Syrup is HERE!
(Like all of Torani's SF syrups, it has ZERO calories per serving.) It's been
spotted at World Market, and you can order it through Amazon. Grab a bottle
and wow your pals with pumpkin lattes...
Be on the lookout for the small-but-lovable DiGiorno 200 Calorie Portions
Pizzas. Good idea, pizza people. Keep 'em coming! ***Do you watch late-
night infomercials while thinking, "That should be MEEEEE shoving five
pounds of carrots into a juicer!"? Then it's your lucky day. Vita-Mix (no
relation to VitaTops), maker of super-powerful blenders, is celebrating the
60th anniversary of its first-ever infomercial. (See it here!) In honor of this
milestone, the company's challenging YOU to create a DIY demonstration
spot. So if you own a Vita-Mix and a video cam (or can borrow them), enter
for your chance to win $10,000! Click here for details. (Ends 12/31/09.)
***Here's something cool we found: tomato paste in a tube. SO convenient --
and way better than opening a can and either letting most of it go to waste
or trying to figure out the best way to store the leftovers. Buy some HERE.
