Nestlé is launching a new frozen-food brand aimed at the growing market of consumers who are using weight-loss drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy. The new brand, named “Vital Pursuit”, will have an initial lineup of 12 items, including frozen bowls, sandwich melts and pizzas. The products will include one or more essential nutrients, like protein, calcium or iron. The company plans to sell Vital Pursuit items for $4.99 or less, and offer gluten-free options, beginning later this year. Roughly 1 in 8 adults in the US has used a weight-loss drug at some point, according to a recent survey.

Since the moment it was revealed that ‘Deadpool’ was joining the MCU, there’s been one question fans have had top of mind: Will he still be allowed to be “the merc with a mouth?” Well, as it turns out, even Ryan Reynolds was surprised at how much of a “hard R” rating Disney has allowed “Deadpool & Wolverine” to have. Reynolds told Fandango: “I hope it doesn’t sound condescending, I’m really proud of them for doing this. I think it’s a huge step for them.” While pleasantly surprised at the rating, Reynolds said that for his character, “there’s no other way to do it.” The film, set to be Marvel’s first R-rated movie, hits theaters on July 26.

Hugh Jackman committed to playing ‘Wolverine’ in a third “Deadpool” movie before even letting his agent know. Jackman told Fandango that his decision to play the character again after it was killed off in 2017’s “Logan”, was made while driving when, quote: “literally, just like a bolt of lightning, came this knowing deep in my gut that I wanted to do this film with Ryan (Reynolds)”. Jackman said that ever since he saw the first “Deadpool” film, he knew the 2 characters should be together. So, as soon as he could, he called Reynolds and said “Let’s do it.” Next: “I had to ring my agent and said, ‘Oh, by the way, I have just committed to a movie.’”

Last week, GM announced the end of the Chevy Malibu, the company’s last sedan model, in order to focus on EV production. The demise of the Malibu follows last year’s elimination of the Camaro, leaving the automaker with a lineup of just SUVs, trucks, and the 2-door Corvette. GM isn’t the only carmaker to step away from smaller cars as they lose popularity among drivers. Ford (mostly) quit sedans in 2019, although it still makes the Mustang. Stellantis is focused on SUVs and trucks, but plans to bring back an electric version of the Dodge Challenger in 2025. And Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, and Subaru have also scaled back their sedan production.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A football (soccer) referee has been suspended for life for celebrating with a club that he helped to victory. Dutch football clubs St. George and SV De Valken met in a final match of the country’s 4th division to decide which team would be promoted to the 3rd. During the game, ref Jan Smit showed 3 red cards to SV De Valken players and another to the coach, and let the game go an extra 15 minutes. Then, as soon as St. George scored the equalizer necessary to guarantee the club’s promotion, Smit whistled the end of the game. A clip circulated later of St. George players celebrating alongside Smit, who was seen laughing and singing with the winners — and even lifting the trophy. The Royal Dutch Football Association soon released a statement, indicating he had been banned, and saying “We expect a neutral attitude from a referee and that both teams are treated with respect. His attitude, of course, was not indicative of that.”

As the price of your trip to the supermarket continues to rise, here are some ways to make your bill smaller — without cutting out your favorite foods…

Be aware of how much you spend on food: Go over old receipts and credit card info to figure out how much you currently spend on groceries. Then make small, incremental changes to reduce the amount. (Like peeling oranges in-store, so they’ll weigh less?)

Make a meal plan: Have an outline prepared of how you plan to eat everything you buy –especially produce, so it doesn’t go bad.

Check the fridge first: Actually, check the pantry too. This way, you don’t end up with duplicates – and are only buying what you truly need. Bonus: Challenge yourself to use only the groceries you already have at home. You’ll be surprised at what you have on hand – and you’ll save the cost of a trip to the supermarket.

Reduce meat consumption: Some cut back on meat for health reasons, but it can be beneficial for your wallet, too. Try reducing the amount of meat you use in a recipe. For example, use 3/4 of a pound of beef rather than 1 pound in a recipe. No one will notice a difference.

Buy frozen produce: As you know, it can spoil quickly. Instead, buy it frozen. Purchase it in its simplest frozen form, because produce in a microwaveable bag, or covered in sauce or purée will be more expensive.

Buy spices in bulk: Those tiny, costly jars are a waste of money if you cook with spices regularly. You refill an empty spice jar from the bulk bins. Buying in bulk can also apply to dried pasta, rolled oats, rice and other grain products. (And chocolate! Don’t forget chocolate!)

Don’t buy products at eye level: You’ve heard this before. Stores place the more expensive items right in front of your face. Reach up or down for better deals.
