Spotted on Shelves...
Diet Hansen's Green Tea Sodas - Made with green tea extract and sweetened
with Splenda (sucralose), these new, caffeine-free, no-calorie Green Tea
Sodas come in Lemon Mint, Ginger, Tangerine, and Pomegranate. The best
of the bunch (by far!) is the Pomegranate flavor -- yum! Find 'em at select
supermarkets and Target locations (and be careful to get the ones labeled
Diet Hansen's, because the regular full-calorie versions look VERY similar!).
Flat Earth Crisps, Single-Serving Bags - Those fruit 'n veggie flavored baked
chips from Frito-Lay are great. But those giant bags are dangerous. That's
why we were thrilled to spot multipacks (each containing 5 single-serving
bags) on the shelves recently. Each individual bag has about 130 calories.
Special K2O Protein Water Mix - These single-serving packets of mix-in
powders turn regular water into a 30-calorie water beverage that packs in 5
whole grams of protein. They're specially formulated to help fight hunger,
and they come in Iced Tea, Strawberry Kiwi, and Pink Lemonade flavors. The
Pink Lemonade is GREAT!
Eat the Hot Dogs the Stars Love... Without Guilt!
You may have heard of the famous Pink's Hot Dogs in Hollywood. This family
owned and operated hot dog stand has been PACKED all day and night for
over 65 years. A favorite of locals, tourists and TONS of celebs, Pink's hot
dogs are super-popular and sooooo delicious. The hot dogs Pink's serves are
made by a company called Hoffy, and with their newly formulated Extra Lean
Beef Franks now sold online, Hoffy's hot dogs are officially available
nationwide for the first time EVER. So you can order these famous dogs and
enjoy them in the privacy of your own home. And the best part is that each
one of these Extra Lean pups has just 45 calories and 2g of fat! They also
make a super-ginormous Extra Lean Quarter Pounder Big Dog that clocks in
at just 110 calories and 5g of fat. It's hot dog insanity. (We recommend
topping yours with some Boca Chili, onions & mustard and slapping it on a
Wonder Light Hot Dog Bun for a GREAT guilt-free Pink's Chili Dog swap!)

Stuff You Didn't Know You Needed...
SmartShopper Grocery List Organizer - Food shopping and errand running
have never been easier! This handy gadget is a voice-activated little helper
that'll keep you organized by printing out all your lists. You talk to it, and it
prints out what you say. It'll even sort your items by where they're found in
the store! How futuristic and fun is that?!?
Individual Pie Slice Pan - This pan takes portion control to the next level.
Why bake a whole pie when you can bake just one slice? If you're the type
who can't be trusted around multi-serving desserts, this cute little baking pan
will be your new best friend. It'll also keep your pie filling from oozing all
over the place. Woohoo!
Funky Fresh Corndog Car Air Freshener - Ok, this thing is totally silly, but it's
also pretty cute. If you want your car, room, or office to smell like a lovely
carnival corndog, order this kooky thing. And, if it happens to make you
hungry for a cornmeal-dipped pup on a stick, check out Morningstar Farms'
no-guilt version -- it ROCKS!
Free stuff ALERT!!! There's a new chip in town, and you can try it for FREE.
Nabisco's new Garden Harvest Toasted Chips are actually full of fruits &
veggies and come in four varieties (Tomato Basil, Vegetable Medley, Apple
Cinnamon, and Banana). They're trans-fat-free, made with 100% whole
grain, and they have just 120 calories and 3 - 4g fat per serving (about 16
chips) -- that's a POINTS® value of 2*, if you're counting. So if you enjoy
things that are triangular and crispy, click here and get your free
sample,while supplies last! ***More studies are showing that a diet rich in
antioxidants can help keep your brain working better, improving your ability
to focus and your memory. So load up on those blueberries, strawberries,
pomegranates, broccoli, and spinach leaves, people!!! ***A recent U.S.
study revealed that drinking green tea could help treat dry, itchy skin caused
by conditions like dandruff and psoriasis. Experts also say the stuff helps
your immune system a lot. Go, green tea! ***We're super-excited about this
news bit. Packages of both ground and whole-bean Dunkin' Donuts coffee
(which we LOVE so, sooo much!) will soon be available in 40,000 grocery and
other retail stores nationwide. Keep an eye out for the stuff at Wal-Mart,
Target, Costco, BJ's, Rite Aid, Walgreens, and more. Yee-haaa! That's all
we've got. HG out!
