HORMEL SPAM LITE. $1.39 to $1.89 per 12-ounce can. BONNIE: Light Spam - that's an oxymoron if I ever heard one. Hormel did reduce the amount of sodium and fat in Spam by 25 percent, but that still leaves a whopping 560 milligrams of sodium and 12 grams of fat per 2-ounce serving. That's about as much sodium as in a 12-inch Domino's Sausage and Mushroom Pizza and as much fat as in a 10 1/2-ounce serving of Stouffer's (red box) lasagna. Spam also contains nitrite, a preservative that should not be consumed often.

The bottles of Everfresh grapefuit juice that were found with punctured lids in Hatfield Borough on Tuesday did not contain any foreign substances, a spokeswoman for the federal Food and Drug Administration said yesterday. "All of the results of the analyses are in, and we did not find anything other than naturally occurring mold," said Theresa Young-Holmes of the FDA in Philadelphia. She said the mold was most likely a result of air that entered the bottles through the holes.

An episode of "Sex and the City" just may have saved the day for a struggling segment of American agriculture. The Florida Department of Citrus jumped all over a chance to promote its faltering grapefruit market when the high-maintenance women of the popular HBO show were seen sipping grapefruit martinis. "After that episode ran, we all screamed, 'Did you see that?' They had been drinking cosmos on the show for so long," Michelle Chandler told an Associated Press reporter.

Without any shame - but without any pride, either - I will say that I like to drink. A good wine with dinner, a beer on occasion; I like the way these spirits taste and the way they enhance the flavor of food. But anyone who entertains these days knows that many guests are avoiding alcohol, and knows it is wise to provide a wide array of nonalcoholic drinks. To this end, the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention in Washington, D.C., asked Washington-area bartenders to create an array of festive alcohol-free beverages.

Anne Marie Fahey left the last dinner she ever had carrying a doggie bag. She and her date, Thomas Capano - now charged with her murder - ordered swordfish that night, but according to workers at Ristorante Panorama at Front and Market streets in Old City Philadelphia, neither ate much. They were seated at a table near the kitchen - she facing the kitchen, he the door. Fahey, 30, wearing a Laura Ashley dress, ordered a seabreeze - vodka and cranberry and grapefruit juice - before dinner.

As far as purists are concerned, pesto is an Italian sauce made from basil, garlic, pine nuts, olive oil and Parmesan cheese. Period. But the term is such convenient shorthand for thick, all-purpose, puree- based sauces that alternate "pestos" are showing up all over the place. Parsley, spinach and cilantro routinely take the place of basil. Walnuts, almonds, even sunflower seeds stand in for pine nuts. Low-fat versions reduce the oil. And at some point even free-wheelers must concede it ain't pesto no more.

Americans seem to be losing their taste for orange juice. And the demand for fresh grapefruit has soured at a time when the Florida groves are laden with a bumper crop. That has the billion-dollar Florida citrus industry worried - enough to fight back with a proposed $72 million promotional campaign. For the first time since such statistics have been kept, retail sales of orange juice - Florida's premier citrus product - have declined in two consecutive years. So has the demand for grapefruit juice, although that's less serious, because much less of that crop goes into juice.
