I'm always checking labels for hidden sodium and going easy on it--the stuff makes me hold water like a water balloon!

So, I was happy to see the study about how more foods are ditching extra salt, only to learn a new report from Consumer Reports (CR) finds plenty of salt in foods you wouldn't think to check.

CR analyzed thirty-seven foods to check their sodium levels. Among the surprises:

* Twizzlers: Black Licorice Twists, four strands have 200 milligrams; four strands of Twizzlers Strawberry Licorice have 115 mg.
