Oatmeal Toasters are made with whole grains and real oats and studded with sweet fruit. Each square offers 4g of fiber and 20 g of whole grain and is available in cinnamon raisin and cranberry orange flavors.

Oatmeal Toasters are perfect for an on-the-go breakfast or snack, for both kids and adults. With fiber, whole grains, and only 160 calories, they are a delicious, healthy choice."

HDesign launches toilet paper replacement device

BY Allison Cerra

MISSOURI CITY, Texas — HDesign has introduced a toilet paper replacement device.

The EZ-I/O Changer uses the existing functionality of the typical toilet paper roller to its advantage. With the EZ-IO Changer, the toilet paper itself becomes the main object used to remove, replace, and install an empty (or full) roll of toilet paper; instead of holding onto the ends of the roller.
