Oprah Winfrey debuts a food line that's about comfort, with a healthy twist.

You get taters! And you get taters! And you get taters!

Media mogul Oprah Winfrey has extended her brand to the refrigerated aisle of supermarkets, where her own line of soups and sides come with a healthy twist.

Based on the idea that comfort dishes can be healthy, the O, That’s Good! brand is in collaboration with Kraft Heintz and marks Winfrey’s first food line.

The new sides, which are separate from Winfrey’s role as a Weight Watcher’s spokesperson, features such dishes such as mashed potatoes with cauliflower mixed in. The broccoli cheddar soup includes butternut squash in place of some of the cheese. There are eight choices. Each sells for under $5.

In addition to the mashed potatoes and cauliflower combo, the sides choices include garlic mashed potatoes and cauliflower; three cheese pasta with butternut squash; and creamy Parmesan pasta with white beans.

And rounding out the soup list, Winfrey is ready to bowl you over with baked potato with cauliflower; creamy tomato basil with celery and carrots; and creamy butternut squash with sweet potatoes and carrots.

Sides and soups from O, That's Good! line set to be in stores across the U.S. by October.

“This product line is real, delicious food with a twist,” Winfrey said in a statement.

There’s another twist: 10% of the proceeds go toward charities fighting to end hunger.

The emphasis on feel-good food with a focus on smart nutrition fits for Winfrey, who has battled weight gains throughout her career.

O, That’s Good! soups and sides hit grocery store shelves nationwide by October.
