hose on a sugar-free diet can now enjoy Jell-o desserts. Marmelite has three different fruit-flavored diet Jell-o desserts (strawberry, pineapple, and apricot), also suitable for people with diabetes. One package is NIS 6.50. If you like to spice up your food with garlic, but don't want to bother peeling garlic gloves and getting the smell all over your fingers, you can try the garlic slivers in olive oil by Bnei Darom. Bnei Darom produces quality olive oil, and the garlic sits in extra-virgin olive oil. The price for a jar, available in selected delicatessen stores and in the Supersal supermarkets, is NIS 15. A new snack from Ma'adanot that will be appreciated especially by children is called Good Bite, little dough rolls filled with pizza sauce or cheese, with or without olives. Good Bite does not contain margarine, and has less than five percent trans-fatty acids; a 500 gr. package is NIS 20.95. Ma'adanot also has garlic bread sticks in the frozen food department; one package is NIS 10. New pastrami with something extra is offered by Tirat Zvi, which now has low-fat pastrami with olives, peppers and with orange peels. The pastrami with orange peel on the edges is apparently a novelty; a 360 gr. package costs NIS 25-27. Adama has new organic herbal teas in eight different flavors. The eight available flavors are Echinacea, mint, lemon verbena, Melissa, chamomile, fennel, lemon grass, and green tea; a package of 20 tea bags is NIS 12.90-14.90. Telma has new breakfast cereal bars that kids might like to eat as a snack or on their way to school, if they didn't have a chance to eat breakfast. The sweet cereal bars are Cocoman (chocolate with yogurt cream), Shugi with chocolate cream or Shugi with milk cream. A package containing eight bars is NIS 13.90-16.90. Energy has new muesli with fruit, containing 30% fruit, as well as sunflower and flax seeds. The cereal comes in a big-size 750-gr. bag, and costs NIS 29.80. Kids will love the Candy Spray, Spray Pop, or Candy Blaster candies, even if just for their shape. The Monsters Candy Sprays come in apple, strawberry and watermelon flavors, and have a monster finger puppet sitting on top; the Candy Blasters come in five flavors of liquid candy you can spray in your mouth, and the Spray Pops also have an attached lollipop. These candies cost NIS 5.5 a piece, and are available in selected mini-markets and candy-booths.
