Changes Rock the Yogurt World: Sweetener News & Sweet Spoonable Cheese?!
Yoplait Light Goes Aspartame-Free - After fielding requests from snackers like you, Yoplait Light is ditching the aspartame completely. The 90-calorie cups will be sweetened with sucralose instead. The change will be in full effect for all sizes and flavors by the end of the summer. What do YOU think of this switch? Take our one-question poll!
Trend Alert: Is German the New Greek? - It's not exactly yogurt... It's quark! Elli Quark is a yogurt-like spoonable cheese that's free of fat, high in protein, and low in sugar. It's like a cross between ricotta cheese and regular yogurt, and it's DELICIOUS. In flavors like Vanilla Bean and Bananas Foster (our faves), each 6-oz. container has 80 - 90 calories and 14 - 17g protein (PointsPlus® value 2*). It's currently available in select markets and natural-food stores (including a bunch of Whole Foods locations), and it's coming soon to more retailers. BTW, it DEFINITELY tastes more like yogurt than cheese... Keep an eye out!
Tortilla fanatics: Want freshly cooked wraps at the touch of button? Check out the Flatev machine -- it's basically the Keurig of tortillas, churning out flour and corn wraps from pods in less than a minute! WOW. It won't become available until 2015, but you can get on the pre-order wait-list now. ***Is your fitness tracker lying to you? Say it ain't so! New research out of Iowa State University found fitness tracker data to be off by as much as 23 percent. The tracker that tested with the most accurate reading is the BodyMedia FIT device (formerly BodyBugg), with a 9.3 percent error rating. Click to see how your tracker of choice fared... ***Washington cherries are coming -- reportedly, a whole lot of them! Apparently, this year's cherry crop out of the Northwest is huge, and it's stocked with oversized fruits. We're making room in our crisper drawer and grabbing our Crazy-Delicious Cheesy Cherry Danish recipe... ***Who's ready for Mr. Peanut's Nutty Ride? OK, so that only exists in the snack-themed amusement park of our dreams. But three Planters NUTmobiles have hit the road -- follow the Planters trucks, and score free peanut samples (and wacky photos) at their stops. Fun! And that's all we've got. HG out!
