Strauss ice cream and Danona dairy now cooperate to offer you a healthier kind of ice cream that consists of 40% Danona bio-yogurt. The Cremissimo yogurt ice creams contain only 1.5% fat and come in individual-sized cups; one cup contains 120 calories. A four-pack of Cremissimo yogurt ice creams, available in the flavors strawberry or tropical fruit, is NIS 17. The barbecue season has arrived again, and especially on Independence Day this is a favorite pastime of Israelis. Strauss has some new Ahla salads to accompany the meat, available for a limited time only. The new salads are tomato-pepper (NIS 14), tehina-pepper (NIS 13.34) and felafel humous (NIS 12.70). Hot dogs don't have a reputation for being healthy, but Zoglowek has now come up with hot dogs that are made from one select piece of meat and aren't a mix of all kinds of leftovers. All these hot dogs contain the Vitamins B3, B6 and selenium. The four different varieties are chicken breast, chicken breast with seasoning herbs, turkey (dark meat) and beef (from the shoulder); higher quality comes with a heftier price tag, too: you pay NIS 18 for 400 gr. (five hot dogs in the beef option, 10 for the chicken and turkey). Bet Hashita now sells spicy varieties of olives that until now could only be purchased by weight. The three different kinds are spicy cracked olives, olives in wine vinegar and Syrian olives with lemon and garlic; a 430 gr. jar of these spiced olives is NIS 9.90. If you want something different than the usual burekas, you can try the Tsukur (a Turkish word meaning "rope") made by Ma'adanot, a family-sized rolled up burekas pastry with different fillings. The Tsukur comes with Bulgarian cheese, potato, or yellow cheese filling; the cheese variety costs NIS 19.90 and the potato Tsukur is NIS 15.90 for 700 gr. Tara has new vanilla and chocolate flavored desserts for kids, enriched with calcium and Vitamin D. The tubs of these Tara Kids desserts are decorated with pictures of the popular cartoon characters Tom and Jerry to make them more attractive to kids; the price for one tub is NIS 1.94. A very tasty meat dish by Mama Of is the chicken filet marinated in sweet chili sauce. The ready-to-eat chicken can be mixed with fried noodles or stuffed in a sandwich. The sweet chili chicken contains 3% fat; a 400 gr. package (11-12 pieces) is NIS 29.65. A tasty sweet snack for those who like granola are the Corny Knusbits (or Cornishnush in Hebrew), crispy granola balls with chocolate or with nuts. The granola snacks come in yellow cups with a lid, so you can seal them off after every bite; the price for one cup is NIS 12. Ta'am shel Tsvika offers fresh gourmet salad dressings that can be kept in the refrigerator for six months. The new gourmet salad dressings are vinaigrette, vinaigrette with dried tomatoes, vinaigrette with seasoning herbs and garlic sauce; a 330 ml. bottle is NIS 18.90.
