Eating as exercise

If your idea of exercise is lifting food to your mouth, a New York company has something for you: recipes for low-fat sandwiches. Hansel N Gretel, maker of Healthy Deli meats, has developed sandwiches with names like the Honey Ham Muscle Toner and the Turkey Treadmill that use reduced-calorie breads, dressings and meats, and contain an average of 190 calories. Look for the meats and recipes in Weis Markets and Super Fresh stores.

Two for one

Cuisinart has introduced the first ice cream and sorbet maker that allows consumers to create two different flavors at once. The Flavor Duo Ice Cream and Sorbet Maker will be available in stores in May at a suggested price of $99.99.

Coffee sippers' tips

If you want to improve your coffee's flavor, Dunkin' Donuts has some suggestions: Buy small quantities of coffee because roasted beans will stay fresh only about 20 days unless they are vacuum-sealed; store coffee in an airtight container at room temperature rather than in the refrigerator or freezer; and never let brewed coffee sit on the burner for more than 20 minutes.
