NEWS: Kellogg’s Hopes To Make Us Regular Using The Power of Eggo Waffles


I thought Eggo waffles were only good as syrup sponges, but after waking up from a syrup induced coma with my face in a pool of Mrs. Buttersworth’s, I found out they have redeeming nutritional qualities. There are vitamins and minerals in Eggo waffles, although I think they’re negated when I dump a 1/4 of a cup of syrup on them. But without syrup they’re like round Simpson yellow Flintstones vitamins.

Even though Kellogg’s are masters at providing consumers with essential vitamins and minerals in frozen waffle form, they’re not standing still and they’re taking it another step forward with their new Eggo FiberPlus Waffles.

It comes in two varieties: Eggo FiberPlus Calcium Buttermilk Waffles and Eggo FiberPlus Antioxidants Chocolate Chip Waffles. Eating two of these waffles provides 35 percent of your daily recommended intake of fiber. If you fear osteoporosis, two Eggo FiberPlus Calcium Buttermilk Waffles give you 35 percent of your daily calcium. If you want to boost your immune system, two of the chocolate chips ones will give you 20 percent zinc.

So suck it, milk and peanuts!

NEWS: Cheerios Family One Step Closer To Having Their Own TLC Reality Show With New Cinnamon Burst Cheerios

Diddy once said, “I thought I told you that we won’t stop. I thought I told you that we won’t stop. I thought I told you that we won’t stop. I thought I told you that we won’t stop.” He could’ve been talking about himself and his late partner, the Notorious B.I.G., but he also could’ve been talking about himself and Cheerios, because with the new Cinnamon Burst Cheerios, it looks like Cheerios won’t stop producing new flavors.

Cinnamon Burst Cheerios is flavored with real cinnamon, although it doesn’t seem like a lot of it since it’s listed between salt and guar gum in the middle of the ingredients list. If you’re a big fan of fiber, and who isn’t, you’ll be happy to hear this particular Cheerios contains five grams of dietary fiber, which is more than regular Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios.

A cup of Cinnamon Burst Cheerios has 110 calories, 2 grams of fat, 0 grams of saturated fat, 0.5 grams of polyunsaturated fat, 1 gram of monounsaturated fat, 0 milligrams of cholesterol, 125 milligrams of sodium, 27 grams of carbohydrates, 5 grams of fiber, 9 grams of sugar, 13 grams of other carbohydrates and 2 grams of protein.

NEWS: Häagen-Dazs Confuses Your Fork and Spoon with New Limited Edition Caramel Apple Pie Ice Cream

Have I entered some Bizarro world where, instead of ice cream on top of my pie, there’s pie in my ice cream?! What craziness is this? Should I use a fork or a spoon? I’m so confused! Wait, I just had an idea. It’s so wacky, it just might work. May I present for your consideration: the spork.

Okay, so it’s really not that crazy, and you’ll probably be safe with just a spoon. Häagen Dazs has stuck desserts into their ice cream before, like banana split. This seems to be their first foray into pie territory, however. Caramel Apple Pie is a limited edition flavor, although there’s no indication on Häagen Dazs’ website of how long it will be around, so you better hurry up and get some because it could be gone TOMORROW. (It will probably not be gone tomorrow.)

Häagen-Dazs describes caramel apple pie as such: “A classic à la mode dessert blended together to create an all-in-one indulgence. Smooth apple ice cream with a hint of cinnamon is delicately swirled with diced fresh apples, flakey pie crust, and rich caramel.”

Yep, that sounds like a pie in an ice cream, all right. Single ladies, rejoice – the next time you get dumped by a guy who was obviously a jerk and all wrong for you anyway, all you need is a spoon and a pint of Häagen Dazs Caramel Apple Pie. No more messing with plates, pie cutters and ice cream scoops.

Caramel Apple Pie contains real sugar, real apples and no trans fat, so you can pretend you’re eating something not completely unhealthy as sit on your couch crying and watching You’ve Got Mail for the 7,000 time.

A half cup of the Häagen-Dazs Caramel Apple Pie ice cream has 250 calories, 14 grams of fat, 8 grams of saturated fat, 65 milligrams of cholesterol, 110 milligrams of sodium, 28 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, 24 grams of sugar, 3 grams of protein, 10% vitamin A and 8% calcium.

Update 2: Click here to read out Ruffles Molten Hot Wings and Loaded Chili & Cheese review.

No one wants to come to your Super Bowl party because your 32-inch high-def television is too small for the big game? You could spend $2,000 to buy a bigger HDTV or you could promise to cook food that’ll compensate for your television’s size.

Don’t have $2,000 or the ability to cook?

Well, don’t worry. Just tell your friends you’ll be serving up hot wings, chili & cheese and supreme pizza at your Super Bowl party. After they all arrive, chain the doors so no one can leave, open up bags of the new Ruffles Molten Hot Wings, Ruffles Loaded Chili & Cheese, and Doritos Pizza Supreme, and then shout “Bon Appetit!”

The new Ruffles flavors still have ridges and the Doritos Pizza Supreme uses the same technology Frito-Lay used to create the eerily accurate Madden-Inspired Doritos flavors to help create a Doritos chip that allows us to taste the different ingredients found on a supreme pizza.

Yay, technology!

The new Ruffles flavors have 160 calories, 10 grams of fat, 1 gram of saturated fat, 2.5 grams of polyunsaturated fat, 5 grams of monounsaturated fat, 170-180 milligrams of sodium, 15-16 grams of carbohydrates, 1 gram of sugar, 1 gram of fiber and 2 grams of protein.

NEWS: Lean Cuisine’s New Spring Rolls Are Something You Can Bring To Work For Lunch and Something Your Co-Workers Can Steal From The Company’s Lunch Room Refrigerator

Isabel's Mum's Spring Rolls

Update: Click here to read our Lean Cuisine Spring Rolls review

Spring rolls are typically an Asian dish, but the rebels at Lean Cuisine decided not to play by the culinary rules with their new line of Casual Cuisine Spring Rolls. They come in three ethnic varieties.

The Garlic Chicken Spring Rolls contain white meat chicken, garlic, spinach, onions and parmesan cheese. The Fajita-Style Chicken Spring Rolls have white meat chipotle chicken, corn, black beans, bell peppers and onion. The Thai-Style Spring Rolls contains white meat chicken, shredded cabbage, julienne yellow carrots and spicy red coconut curry.

The folks that have filled the freezer aisle with a frozen meal variety that’s as vast as a Cheesecake Factory menu, call these spring rolls a “snack.” But I, and probably a Cheesecake Factory menu, think of them as appetizers, and something to make sure I don’t get hungry 20 minutes after eating a portion-controlled Lean Cuisine meal.

All three varieties have 200 calories, 7-8 grams of fat, 2 grams of saturated fat, 4 grams of polyunsaturated fat, 2 grams of monounsaturated fat, 10-15 grams of protein, 580 milligrams of sodium, 23-24 grams of carbohydrates, and 1-2 grams of fiber.

The Lean Cuisine Casual Cuisine Spring Rolls are available now and each box contains two servings of three spring rolls.
