On The Way...
Burger King 100 Calorie Snacks - Hey, BK! YOU'RE hopping on the 100-
calorie bus, too? It's getting mighty crowded on that vehicle, but there's
always room for a good idea. This fall, keep an eye out for little 100-calorie
packs of Ketchup & Fries Flavored Potato Snacks (as well as flame-broiled
burger flavored ones) at select BK locations. Ketchup and fries for 100
calories?! We LOVE that! They'll also be rolling out bags of these snacks in a
variety of sizes to be sold at grocery stores, convenience stores, vending
machines and more. You might even be offered a pack on an upcoming
Lower-Calorie Gatorade - Yep, it's true. A reduced-calorie Gatorade is on the
way. We don't have many details yet, but we'll be following this story and
giving the stuff a shot. We're big fans of regular Gatorade, and while we
don't drink it daily, it happens to be the BEST thing on EARTH to sip when
you're feeling queasy or getting over a stomach virus. Bet you didn't know
Silk Pumpkin Spice Soymilk - The creative geniuses over at Silk are at it
again. This fall, expect to see a holiday-tastic Pumpkin Spice version of their
super soymilk. It has 170 calories a cup (and 3.5g fat), so while we don't
recommend guzzling it straight, it'll certainly zazzle-up coffee drinks like
nobody's business. We know -- we've tried it. It's head-explodingly fantastic.
And luckily, a little of the stuff goes a loooong way!
Walk This Way...
OK, we are officially OBSESSED with walkscore.com. OB-SESSED! Type in an
address, and it'll rate its "walkability" (meaning how many places are so
close by that you can easily walk to them) on a scale of 1 to 100, factoring in
restaurants, bookstores, shopping centers, etc. It also instantly lists specific
locations and their distances. SO COOL! HG's house scored a big fat 0
(bummer!), but the HG HQ scored a 68 (not too shabby). Click here to
search your relevant addresses. Just a warning, you may spend WAY too
much time on this site. They even offer the Walk Scores of celebrity
locations, like the White House and the Brady Bunch house. BTW, research
has shown that the average resident of a pedestrian-friendly, walkable
neighborhood weighs 7 pounds less than someone who lives in a sprawling
neighborhood. And people who live in walkable neighborhoods tend to drive
less, resulting in fewer car accidents. Interesting stuff!
