Getting a grip

If your trash bag is forever falling into your trash can, check out Hefty's new "Gripper," a 13-gallon trash bag made with a "Stretch and Grip Top," an elasticized drawstring designed to stretch over the trash can and grip it tightly. The Gripper comes in a 48-count box at a suggested price of $5.43. A 20-count package sells for a suggested price of $3.88.

Yogurt treat for holiday

Dannon suggests an easy treat using its Sprinkl'ins yogurt with color-changing crystals -- which, in the Halloween version, will change vanilla yogurt from white to black or orange: Crumble 2 vanilla wafers into a wide parfait glass or cup. Spread half the yogurt over the cookies, then sprinkle with the crystals. Hide some candy corn or gummies, and add the remaining yogurt. Crumble 2 more cookies on top and add more candy, if you like. Say boo! And enjoy.
