OK this is not a joke - this is actually a recipe of moonshine that was distilled with all natural real fruit. 70 proof and 35% alcohol, just one whiff and you'll be convinced that this did come from a still. The taste is clearly apple pie with cinnamon, and here's a cinnamon stick inside every jar. This is not for the faint-hearted, nor people trying to watch their budget. A 750 ml bottle, which is the same size as most distilled spirits, will set you back $25. It might be a perfect holiday gift, but probably not for every day consumption. The recipe is actually from Junior Johnson, a NASCAR Hall of Famer who was actually put in jail for a moonshining conviction; and then pardoned by Ronald Reagan.

If you can get past smirking when you see this - that there is 43%, not 45%, not 40% of the RDA for fiber, you will actually enjoy the taste of this cereal. A blend of sliced almonds, sweetened nutty clusters and whole grain wheat and oats mixed with corn bran, this cereal is good, but really sweeter than I would like . It's sweetened with sugar, corn syrup, brown sugar syrup, molasses and honey which is why. It's unfortunate that the only way it seems that the cereal companies can get Americans to consume 11 grams of fiber, is to have 12 grams of sugars.

This added protein milk delivers 30 grams of protein in 11 ounces - compared to 11 grams in 11 ounces of whole milk. The chocolate flavor is actually very good, not chalky at all and doesn't leave any kind of aftertaste. This is their 'less sugar' recipe that contains only 6 grams of sugars and that includes the naturally occurring sugars in milk. If you are looking for a high protein drink this could be for you - however do make sure you read the ingredients label first. One container contains 90 calories.

I've never tried a ketchup made from sun dried tomatoes before, and frankly the taste and the aroma make me want to eat more. It's darker in color, thicker in consistency and very flavorful. However it's a little too sweet. It actually contains 3 grams of sugars per tablespoon, along with 20 calories. The one disappointment in the recipe was the fact that I really couldn't taste any of the garlic or spices. The sugars - corn syrup and sugar - overpowered.

This may well be the best tasting and most satisfying 100 calorie treat you've ever had. This Greek frozen yogurt is loaded with pieces of, and lots of raspberry flavor. Made with real sugar, nonfat milk and real raspberries, each 4 ounce cup has just 1 1/2 grams of fat, 4 grams of protein, with 13 grams of sugars. The texture is smooth and creamy and it has a real yogurt taste! My one complaint is that it doesn't list the names of the active yogurt cultures. I love the fact it comes in this 3 pack container - convenience rules!
