Newman's Own's Wins 'San Francisco Chronicle' Soy Crisp Taste Test

Soy crisps are good because they establish the salty punch—whether ranchy, barbecuey, vinegary, or garlicky—but don't waste calories on a fatty base. No potatoes or other starchy chips, just puffed, low-fat soy crispiness. The San Francisco Chronicle realizes how puffy we all feel after the holidays, and how much we could use "snack alternatives," so they conducted a taste test with five brands. Newman's Own won for tastiest over Whole Foods' store brand 365, Glenny's, Gen Soy, and Safeway's Eating Right. As a soy chipper, I agree with the results, and hope Newman is watching from the clouds, knowing he did right in the soy snack world.

Newman's Own Wine: Better than the Salad Mists, Not as Good as the Lemonade

He has his own cereal, his own salsa, and his own steak sauce, and now Paul Newman also has his own wine. Last month, the philanthropic foodie introduced a 2006 Chardonnay and a 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, each priced at around $16, in partnership with the Rebel Wine Co. Like all Newman's products, all the profits and royalties after taxes are donated to charity. I was curious. Producing a decent jar of marinara is one thing; a bottle of wine is another. Would Newman's be any good?... More
