I'm Phil Lempert with the New Product Hits & Misses. First up is Big Papa's

Spicy Honey Mustard and it's a miss.

Don't be fooled, this is not Spicy Honey Mustard - the first ingredient is mayonnaise - and while I do taste the sweetness it's from a combination of the honey, high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup and brown sugar. The mustard, while it's the third ingredient, frankly I don't taste at all. One tablespoon has 10 grams of sugars and 3 grams of fat and with all due respect to Big Papa don't just list that you are "award winning" - tell us who gave the award to add credibility. Retails for $5.00 for 5 fl oz. Total Score is 74.

Up next,


Cantina Chips

Thin & Crispy is our first hit.

These chips are thinner than the typical tortilla chip. Very fresh tasting and made with just 3 ingredients; corn, oil and salt. No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Ten chips are about 100 calories, 6 grams of fat and zero sugars. They even have directions on how to heat the chips in the microwave, but be careful, if you're not careful adding salsa to the chip will break.

Retails for $3.29 for 9 oz. Total Score is 90.


Vegan Sandwich Spread

NayoWhipped and it's a hit.

At first glance I didn't want to like this product, but after tasting it I've changed my mind. The aroma is very close to that of mayonnaise, the consistency is thick, not gelatinous or watery and the taste is excellent. It does not have the typical soy bean oil aftertaste. For those who want an egg or dairy free spread this is the one.

Retails for $4.69 for 15 fl oz. Total Score is 90.

Luna Bar

Carrot Cake Flavor and its a hit!

If you like a slightly spicy delicious carrot cake you're going to love this new flavor. 8 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber and the best ingredients. This has just the right amount of crunch, fabulous flavor and even though Luna Bar is created for womens' nutritional needs us guys will like it too. We love that Luna is delicious, creates a thoughtful community for women and gives profits back to important causes. Retails for $1.39 for 1.7 oz. Total Score is 96.

Barbara's Organic

Snackanimals Cereal

Cinnamon Crunch

and it's our hit of the week!

You can have your own delicious zoo. Delicious bears and elephants with no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. The cinnamon adds a perfect flavor to the corn and oat flour and 3/4 cup of cereal is 110 calories and 7 grams of sugars, which is far less than the typical kids cereal and has 2 grams of protein without the milk. Will your kids love these? Absolutely. Will you love these? Absolutely. A 98 Wow! Retails for $4.14 for 9 oz. Total score is a 98.
