Low fat, full flavor

Less fat, less sodium, but no less flavor or good potato-chip crunch. Why weren't EatSmart Lightly Salted chips by Snyders of Hanover the standard for potato chips all along? We prefer them plain, but the French Onion flavor revives taste memories of the '60s and the sour cream/onion-soup-mix dip so popular then. The Sweet Barbecue version was a bit too sweet and gritty with seasoning.

EatSmart Reduced Fat Lightly Salted Potato Chips,

8 ounces, $3.49. At most supermarkets.

Bottle of goodness

Made with non-homogenized organic milk from grass-fed cows, this European-style yogurt has been voted "America's Best" by the American Cheese Society for the last two years. The all-natural style is rich as cream; ideal for pouring on cereal or drinking, but thick enough to eat with a spoon. If the natural (plain) yogurt flavor is too tart for your liking, try the mildly sweetened flavors made with organic fruit and berries, especially the Banana Mango.

Traderspoint Creamery Yogurt $6.49 per 32-ounce glass bottle at some area Whole Foods markets.

Shades of autumn

These caramel-laced chocolate tiles in hues of falling leaves are the latest offering from

New York chocolatier Christopher Norman. Not only do these handmade chocolates make a lovely seasonal presentation, they are also rich and lusciously decadent, with fillings of caramel, ganache, and cashew caramel.
