New Foods: The best right-now products

Every Day editor Nicole Jones sniffed, chewed and sipped (and sometimes spit out!) more than 100 new products this month. Here's what stood out-along with DIY versions.

In the store: EVOL Gluten-Free Bowls
"I'm definitely not on a gluten-free diet-but these impressed me. They're yummy and packed with still-crisp, fresh-tasting veggies."
($4.99 for 1 single-serving meal)

DIY: Try our Asian Rice Noodle Salad recipe »

In the store: Freschetta Simply Inspired Pizzas
I'm a die-hard thin-crust fan, and these have the thinnest, crispiest crusts I've found in a frozen pizza-ever! And I love the creative topping combos.
($6.79 for 4 servings)

DIY: Try our Mediterranean Pita Pizzas recipe »

In the store: Planters Jalapeño Pistachios
I'm seeing flavored nuts everywhere now (healthy fats!). Cayenne lends these a perfect, subtly spicy kick.
($3.49 for 4.75 oz.)

DIY: Try our Happy Hour Almonds recipe »

In the store: Wine Cube
This stuff blows the boxed wine stereotype away and is still a steal. The riesling is lightly sweet and refreshing (and the box is spring picnic-friendly!).
($17.99 for 3 liters, at select Target stores)

DIY: Serve with Rocco DiSpirito's Light Bites recipes »

In the store: Alexia Snacks Waffle Cut Sweet Potato Fries
The waffle cut exposes more surface area, helping these babies bake up super-crunchy, just like in restaurants.
($3.49 for seven 1-cup servings)

DIY: Try our Grilled Brie and Fig Sandwiches with Sweet Potato Fries recipe »

In the store: Fresh Express Artisanal Salad Blends
The herb blend with sweet butter lettuce and bright cilantro has way more flavor than most prepackaged options. I'll bet even my picky little brother would like it!
($3.99 for three 1-cup servings)

DIY: Try our Grilled Chicken Club Salad with Guacamole Dressing recipe »
