I'm just wondering if the nutritionists also took filtered these choices based on how many additives and preservatives they contained as well.

Im suprised that Rice Works Brown Rice chips arent on the list! They are awesome! They are fat and cholesterol free, Gluten free and Vegan friendly. And made with whole grains! And the taste is phenominal! Ill never eat another chip but these again...they come in flavors, I like the sea salt! And only 140 calories per serving! Back to the article...most of the foods on the list aren't available nationwide. Ive never heard of most of those brands!

I think it's a fantastic idea to have coupons for these products to encourage your readers to try them. The downside is, many of these coupons are already expired (i.e. Food Should Taste Good chips exp. 10/2009) which doesn't help at all. Just an FYI -
