New Quaker product?

I'm vaguely familiar with Quaker's snacks. Years ago I think I tried one of their Popped chips but I honestly don't remember - guess they didn't make that much of an impression on me. While in the store last week I ran across these Popped chips. They had Salsa Fresco and Sour Cream n Onion. I didn't see them on the Quaker website and I didn't get their nutrition information but I'm sure its comparable to their other similar products. Have you tried these?

New Atkins Products

I hopped off of the Atkins bandwagon years ago. While I did lose weight I realized I love carbs way too much to make a lifestyle change by eliminating them. While in Walmart the other day I saw these new Farmhouse-Style Sausage Scramble meals. They consist of scrambled eggs, sausage, American cheese, green and red peppers and onions. I love the fact they have 22 grams of protein as I've been trying to increase my protein intake. Also 370 calories isn't too bad when you figure that's the average for frozen meals. I'm not a fan of them at all but on rare occasions they do come in handy for the few I can tolerate. I completely forgot to check the price but I'm sure they are around $3.00. If I can find a coupon I may check these out.

I can't say I'm a big fan of baby food, which is what this Happy Squeeze basically is, but I'm now a big fan of the caramel apple flavor . And for the record, I grabbed it without even paying attention. It's actually apple sauce - caramel flavored at that. Of course the texture is that of applesauce but I don't feel like I'm 3 months old while I'm eating it - but let the record also state I have no memory of ever being 3 months old. It is so sweet and the taste of caramel is very distinctive. It was really as if I was enjoying a sweet dessert. You can find these for around $1.50 each at Walmart, which is a little much for me to pay for a snack. The cool thing is each little pack has 1/2 a cup of fruit. They are organic and certified Kosher and are really quite handy to take to work or just stash in your purse or bag for a quick snack. Hopefully I'll come across some coupons for these so I can enjoy them more often.
