D2 .WEDNESDAY. APRIL 30, 1997 FOOD THE SALINA JOURNAL V SUPERMARKET SAMPLER Universal Press Two Kellogg's banana bread waffles offer 2 grams of fiber and 7 grams of fat. Breakfast food doesn't waffle on banana flavor CAROLYN WYMAN • BONNIE TANDY LEBLANG Universal Press Forget the syrup and eat waffles out-of-hand as you would toast What's new on grocers' shelves: Frozen waffles Kellogg's Eggo Banana Bread Waffles: $1.25 to $1.50 per 11- ounce box containing eight frozen waffles. Bonnie: These new Eggo Banana Bread waf- 'fles are a classic example of follow the leader — in this case the banana-flavor- for-breakfast leader. First, .Post introduced Banana Nut Crunch cereal, then Nabisco followed with Banana Nut Bread Instant Multi- grain Hot Cereal, and now here's Kellogg's with Banana Bread Eggo waffles. .". I was pleased to see how natural these were, made with real banana puree that provides 2 grams of fiber per serving. Eat the waffles as you would toast without butter, and you have a moderate fat breakfast with 7 grams per two waffles. If ;you like bananas, I'd suggest giving this "follower" a try. Carolyn: Pop-Tarts, French toast and Dunkin' Donuts have all been made into cereals; cinnamon toast became a waffle, and now, so did banana bread. If you, like me, are already a bit fuzzy-headed in the morning, these new cross-category breakfast foods will make you truly Froot Loopy. This latest product to illustrate the trend also made me happy because Eggo Banana Bread has a strong banana flavor and enough .sweetness to taste good — not without butter, as Bonnie suggests — but without syrup and eaten out of hand like yet another favorite breakfast food — toast. •Spray seasonings Tryson House Flavor Sprays: Garlic, Italian, Oriental, Olive, Buttery Delite, and Mesquite, $3.39 to $3.89 per 6-ounce aerosol can. .', Bonnie: I use nonstick vegetable oil sprays to make cake and "sheet pans and casserole dishes easier to clean after cooking and also to save calories. Making a pan nonstick by spraying it can save hundreds of calories over using butter or oil. But that's not the intended use of these new flavored sprays. These are for seasoning food both before and after cooking. Personally, I think it's an erroneous purpose. Real cooks would never spray these flavored oils on their fresh food; it ruins the taste. I can suggest two possible uses for these, however: the classic pan spraying and flavoring your outdoor grill to keep food from sticking. The Mesquite would be perfect for the latter purpose. Carolyn: I must admit to a less than noble motive in wanting to try these. The idea of flavoring food in the same way as one would apply hair spray or insecticide tickled me. I didn't count on them actually being good, but they are! All but the butter taste real, and you don't have to use half a bottle to get the taste. 1 (I wish I could say the same about most five-hour marinades.) Haul out some plain ingredients and spray, spray, spray. Now that's my idea of cooking. Considering that they're also low in calories and fat, Tryson House Flavor Sprays could become THE convenient dinner additive of the '90s. Juice Ocean Spray Cran-Currant Juice Drink: $3 per 64-ounce bottle. Bonnie: I always enjoy black currants when visiting my sister in Brussels, Belgium, but they're not as easy to find here in the United States. But now you can enjoy their slightly tart taste in a new drink from Ocean Spray. This beverage combines black currants and cranberries — two fruits high in vitamin C. Like all cranberry beverages, this one also contains lots of added sugars, but I can still recommend it on occasion for both its vitamin C and change-of-pace taste. Carolyn: With an unadulterated flavor as rough as blisters on sandpaper, cranberries need to be mixed with other things to produce a drinkable beverage. Currants are the best other thing Ocean Spray has come up with in more than 30 years of juice-blend experimentation. Unlike Cranapple and most of their other cranberry juice blends, currants don't add a new flavor so much as soften and deepen the cranberry one. In other words, this tastes like the cranberry juice God SHOULD have invented.

Alt catwalked down a runway holding a platter of Spicy Black- Eyed Pea and Jicama Salad. (The recipe was delicious, but it wasn't hers. It was from cookbook author Nathalie Dupree.) Celebrity chefs and cookbook authors also vamped down the runway, holding various dishes they had created. "We want to raise the image of canned foods to the same pedestal as fresh or frozen foods," said Robert Fatzinger of the American Iron and Steel Institute in Washington, B.C. The event was designed to convey that idea that "if it's OK for a celebrity, it's OK for me," he said. Both Ivana and Alt were incredibly polished and both were dressed in black, their short skirts showing off their gorgeous gams. Both praised canned foods. Dishes created by several well-, known chefs and cookbook authors using canned foods included Apricot and Almond Tart (pastry chef Nick Malgieri of New York), Spiced Pumpkin Soup (chef Kenneth Oringer of Boston) and Pasta with Artichokes and Olives (cookbook author Melanie Bernard).
