March 2017 | | 95 Far From Average Pizza Consumers looking to cut carbs and calories or avoid gluten while still enjoying pizza Fridays need look no further than Caulipower's line of ready-to-cook cauliflower-crust pizzas. The gluten-free frozen products are made with real cauliflower and contain lower sodium, calories and sugar, while being higher in vitamins than most conventional and gluten-free frozen pizzas. Ready in 15 minutes, Caulipower pizzas come in three varieties, Three-Cheese, Veggie and Margherita, and also as a plain crust. The SRP is $8.99 per 11.6-ounce box. Whip it Good Sunscreen is necessary to stay safe in the hot summer sun, but applying it can be a messy, uncomfortable ordeal. Understanding this, Bayer, under its Copper- tone brand, has launched two waterproof offerings that provide broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. ClearlySheer Whipped Sunscreens, in SPF 30 and 50 variet- ies, feel clean and light on skin, glide on easily, and don't clog pores or cause breakouts. Additionally, WaterBabies Pure & Simple Whipped Sunscreen, with SPF 50 protection, is free of fragrance, parabens, PABA, dyes and oil, giving par- ents peace of mind when using the product on their little ones. Each item retails in 5-ounce bottles for an SRP of $10.99-$13.99. Smart Snacking Given that so many popcorn snacks today are drenched in butter-like substances that can be far from natural, it's understandable that today's health-conscious consumers might have a hard time finding a more au- thentic option. Enter LesserEvil, a snack company that has partnered with artisanal ghee brand Fourth & Heart to introduce Oh My Ghee!, an organic butter-flavored popcorn made with Himalayan pink salt and premium grass- fed ghee. The latter ingredient, a type of clarified butter, is loaded with vita- mins A, D, E and K, as well as butyric acid. The popcorn is touted as a great source of fiber, as well as kosher, USDA Organic-certified and Non-GMO Project-certified. The SRP is $3.99 per 5-ounce bag. Orange Blossom Special With orange among the top three flavors driving growth in flavored spirits, not to mention hard cider currently being in vogue with today's consumers, Strong- bow Orange Blossom is a timely arrival on grocers' shelves. The flavor is said to deliver a fresh, spring-like orange-blos- som aroma with a touch of sweetness and a juicy apple finish, and contains no artificial colors or flavors. The 4.5 percent ABV cider retails in 6-packs of 12-ounce bottles, as well as 12-bottle va- riety packs alongside Gold Apple, Honey and Cherry Blossom flavors. The SRPs are $9 per 6-pack and $15 per variety pack.
