I really like this product's website's name 'NoMoreNakedPopcorn.com'. In fact I like the name more than I like the taste. It's made with real cheddar cheese and does have a bacon flavor but there's something about it that just doesn't work. The cheddar flavor just doesn't come through. What I particularly don't like is that they suggest using one cap-full on the popcorn. One cap-full is the equivalent of four teaspoons but the nutritional facts are based on 1/4 of a teaspoon, so while they say just 3 calories on the front of the package it's actually 3 calories times 16, or 48 calories that you're adding to your popcorn, and get this...1568 mg of sodium.

I just love whomever came up with this clever design for the package, where this edge looks like you're seeing right into the package. I'm not so in love with whomever developed the recipe. The flavor of lime, which actually comes from lime juice solids, is overpowering. The chili flavor however is just right. The crackers are baked so they're nice and crunchy and not greasy at all. These crackers are meant to be eaten by themselves and not with toppings.

If you are one of those who really like toppings on your ice cream, on your cakes or your pancakes, or just about everything, this Strawberry Fig Syrup is for you. It's flavorful with a nice balance between the two fruits and not overly sweet. You can actually see bits of the fruit in the syrup. Two tablespoons are 100 calories and 14 grams of sugars, from naturally occurring sugars as well as added sugars.

Attention all hummus lovers! Now you can have hummus whenever and wherever with these shelf stable airtight tetrahedron packages. Each one contains 1 3/4 ounces, has just 63 calories and 3 grams of fat, but is loaded with 6 grams of protein. Squeeze it on crackers or vegetables and it's the perfect snack for any time. The texture is a little finer and smoother than traditional hummus and the taste is slightly lighter as the recipe includes sesame paste along with the chickpeas.

I'm not usually a fan of either flavored coffee or flavored tea, but one sip of this tea changed my mind. The pumpkin flavor is perfect and doesn't overwhelm or taste artificial. You can taste the combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove. In fact the flavor is so delicate that I wouldn't even hesitate drinking this tea with a meal. Made from black tea leaves, with approximately 50 mg of caffeine in 6 oz.
