Good Stuff: Flatbreads, wine and a probiotic drink


Good frozen


The popular California Pizza Kitchen brand recently launched a new line of Crispy Flatbreads with flavors inspired by the head chef of the chain. Each package includes two hand-held flatbreads, with a distinct crisp crust, that can be prepared in the microwave — or oven — in minutes. They come in Sicilian, Spinach and Artichoke, BBQ Chicken and Margherita. Available in the frozen food section of major supermarkets. Cost is $3.99.

Good wine initiative

To honor first responders, Josh Cellars wine is donating $1 per bottle sold to the National Volunteer Fire Council through October. The company that has varieties of wines in the $14 to $19 range, promised up to $100,000 to the council, which is the leading nonprofit membership association representing the interests of the volunteer fire, EMS, and rescue services. Available at major retailers.

A good probiotic drink

It’s officially fall and that means one thing: the return of pumpkin spice products. Lifeway’s seasonal pumpkin spice kefir is rich in calcium and contains 12 live and active probiotic cultures. It’s also gluten-free and 99 percent lactose-free. And the pumpkin spice isn’t overwhelming in the tangy, smoothie-like beverage. Available at major markets including Wal-Mart and Whole Foods. Cost is about $3.60 for a 32-ounce bottle.
