Hungry Girl Today: 08.14.08


Happy Creamsicle Day! It's truly a day worth celebrating. After all, who can

dispute the delicious duo that is orange and cream?! Here are a few ways to

integrate this flavor sensation into your world (and a few ways NOT to)...

Freezy-Good Fun

Classic, chilly, 50/50 creations...

Dreyer's/Edy's Snack Size Fruit Bars, Orange & Cream - Just like the old-

school Creamsicles you loved as a kid -- but lower cal and smaller. These

each have real fruit juice on the outside (frozen, of course!) and super-light

ice cream on the inside. And the Lime and Raspberry flavors that come in the

pack aren't bad either. Each bar has just 45 calories, 0.5g fat, and 9g carbs

(POINTS® value 1*). BTW, their larger counterparts (all Orange & Creme in

those boxes) are also awesome with 80 calories, 1.5g fat, and 16g carbs

(POINTS® value 2*).

Healthy Choice Sorbet & Cream Bars - Here's another great frozen option,

grab a box of these. Both Orange AND Raspberry flavors come in the pack

(we'll let Raspberry tag along), and each has 90 calories, 1g fat, 17g carbs,

and 1g fiber (POINTS® value 2*).

PhillySwirl Swirl Stix - Now we're getting REALLY crazy... psychedelic even!

These little swirly bars come with 6 fun flavors in each box (including the

Creamsicle-inspired one, Orange Dream). And in addition to being cute, each

has only 48 calories, no fat and 11g carbs (POINTS® value 1*). Now THAT's

adorable! BTW, there are also Sugar Free Swirl Pops with 10 fat-free

calories, 4g carbs, and 1g fiber per pop (POINTS® value 0*). Sweet!

While you're in the freezer aisle, also check out...

Low Fat Creamsicles (1 pop = 70 calories, 1g fat, 13g carbs, 0g fiber --

POINTS® value 1*)

Weight Watchers GIANT Orange Sorbet & Ice Cream Bars (1 bar = 110

calories, 0.5g fat, 28g carbs, 3g fiber -- POINTS® value 2)

Dreyer's/Edy's Sherbet & Light Ice Cream, Orange Cream (1/2 cup = 120

calories, 2g fat, 23g carbs, 0g fiber -- POINTS® value 3*)

No Sugar Added Creamsicles (2 pops = 45 calories, 0.5g fat, 10g carbs, 2g

fiber -- POINTS® value 1*)

Sugar Free Creamsicles (2 pops = 40 calories, 0.5 - 2g fat, 10 - 12g carbs,

3 - 6g fiber -- POINTS® value 0*)

Creamsicle... Hold the Sicle

Check out these other Creamsicle-inspired options -- they won't melt!

Kellogg's Yogos Rollers, Orange Cream - We spotted these stripey snacks

and just had to include them! Unlike other fruit snacks, these have a nifty

streak of yogurty goodness running down the middle. Each roll has only 80

calories, 1.5g fat, and 18g carbs (POINTS® value 2*). Pssst... Thanks for the

calcium, Kellogg's!

Yoplait Light, Orange Crème - Here's a totally unique yogurt flavor. A

container of this stuff makes a great snack or dessert -- just 100 fat-free

calories, 19g carbs, and a POINTS® value of 2*. For added creamy

goodness, try mixing a small handful of white chocolate chips into it or

topping it with a generous squirt of Fat Free Reddi-wip (but maybe not both!).


Dole Fruit Parfait, Mandarins & Creme - Here's a brand-new Creamsicle

craving killer. A container of this cream 'n fruit fusion contains 110 calories,

3g fat, and 21g carbs (POINTS® value 2*). And mandarin O's happen to be

one of our FAVORITES (no offense, navel).

Orange You Glad We Warned You?

Take a peek at these shockers (and swaps)!

Watch OUT for Krispy Kreme's Oranges & Kreme Chiller. It packs a hefty 630

calories, 28g fat, and 92g carbs (POINTS® value 15*)... and that's for the

small size! If you ate TWO of their original glazed doughnuts, you'd

ACTUALLY take in far fewer calories. Instead of either of those crazy options,

opt for the Orange You Glad Chiller if you find yourself at the Double K -- a

12-oz. serving of that fruity sipper has only 180 calories, no fat, and 43g

carbs (POINTS® value 4*). Want it creamy? Just take it home and stir in

some Fat Free Reddi-wip!

DON'T think Jamba Juice is much better than K Kreme just because the place

doesn't serve fried dough -- it isn't. JJ's Orange Dream Machine may lack

major amounts of fat, but the Original size still feeds you 490 calories and

107g carbs! That's 101 grams of sugars and a POINTS® value of 10*.

EEEKS! For a creamy citrus fix made with pure OJ, try the 16-oz. Jamba Light

Mango Mantra instead -- only 160 calories, 0.5g fat and 34g carbs, plus 2g

fiber (POINTS® value 3*).

And in supermarket shocker news, the Sunkist Float packs in 260 calories,

1.5g fat, and (holy cannoli!) 64g carbs (POINTS® value 5*). For a small

bottle of SODA!?! Insanity! You're WAY better off with our Creamy Orange

Dreamfloat (see below!).

HG Saves the Day!

Do-it-yourself celebrations...

Creamy Orange Dreamfloat - This tall glass of joy is sooo easy to make.

Throw together a round and astonish orange 'n cream lovers EVERYWHERE

(or at least those within sipping distance). Only 60 calories and a POINTS®

value of 1* per glass. Yippee!

Orange Creamsicle Martini - If you're in the mood for a grown-up variation of

the Creamsicle (and you're not driving!), make yourself one of these! Just

109 calories and a POINTS® value of 2* (and only around 8 calories and a

POINTS® value of 0* for the virgin version!).

If you REALLY want to get your Creamsicle fix on, whip up a bowl of Maris's

Big Bowl O' Blob Orange 'n Cream Dessert and feed a few friends too. This

thing was created by an HG staffer's mom, and doesn't Mom always make

the best desserts? One ginormous serving has only 50 calories and a

POINTS® value of 1*. Woohoo!
