Thin is in
Maybe this is what Kate Moss meant when she said, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.”
Nature Valley Granola Thins are individually wrapped skinny squares of crunchy, sweet granola topped with a slim, melty layer of either peanut butter or dark chocolate (they come in both flavors). Taste testers had visions of slathering another layer — marshmallow Fluff on chocolate and strawberry jelly on peanut butter — on the graham-like squares or smashing the two flavors together into a sweet sandwich.
Boxes of 10 thins are available in most supermarkets nationwide for about $4.
Dairy Queen will host the Fifth Annual Miracle Treat Day throughout the U.S. on Thursday, when $1 or more from every Blizzard Treat sold at participating locations on that day will be donated to Children’s Miracle Network, a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children’s hospitals.
Although the new Oreo Brownie Earthquake Blizzard Treat is the Blizzard of the Month for August, the original Oreo will be featured as the Miracle Treat Day “Blizzard of the Day.”
The Oreo Blizzard Treat still reigns as the most popular flavor since the first one was served upside down with a spoon in 1985. All currently featured flavors will be available on Miracle Treat Day.
The Dairy Queen system is one of the top 10 contributors to Children’s Miracle Network raising more than $81 million since 1984. Last year on Miracle Treat Day, Dairy Queen locations across the U.S. and Canada raised $4.6 million for 170 Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. In Canada, Miracle Treat Day will be held Aug. 12.

Even if you’ve graduated from juice boxes to San Pellegrino, give maturity a little break and check out Juicy Juice sparkling juice cans. They come in apple, berry and orange flavors and are likely meant for the younger set, but our adult tasters found the lightly carbonated, all-natural beverage refreshing and appealing for a nod to our sweet, fruit juice-sipping younger years.
The 8.4-ounce cans are available in supermarkets nationwide and come in packs of 4 for about $4.50.
