Favorite snacks?

Post by zanettac » Thu Jul 02, 2009 8:03 am

So what are some of your favorite snacks?? I am addicted to the 100 calorie packs of hostess strawberry cupcakes...YUM!! I also found some popcorn...zero points that I love too! So what do you all snack on that is low cal or low points?

The Little Debbie 100 calorie Nutty bars are good too! But my favorite is the 100 calorie Cinnamon Bun cookies! My husband who is not on a diet eats those. If I want them I have to hide them.


I have also heard, but have not tried the Lemon cupcakes that Hostess makes.



Believe me if it is 100 calories I will give it a try.

Mine are the Fiber One Bars!! The chocolate ones are SOO good! Gets my chocolate fix everytime. Every flavor is good, taste nothing like a granola bar!! Which I was leary about b/c everyone said they were so good for you, but I hated the dried out flavor, but Fiber One definitely converted me!!

I'm trying different 100 calorie treats (keebler stripes is one of my favorites), but my fav snacks are different fruits/nuts.


I'll try to measure out in snack bags when I buy, so that I don't over do it.

If I need a sweet treat, then just about any of the chocolatey 100 cal packs work for me!


My BF got me to try Alternative Bagels (1 pt) and Laughing Cow Cream Cheese (1 pt) -- and now I'm hooked! Yum! :-D

I just love doing the half bag of popcorn for 1 point.. The Weight Watchers fudge bars for 1 pt.. Yogurt.. sometimes I get those flat bread things and put some marinara on it and then some mozzerella and some canadian bacon.. zap it in the microwave and roll it together or just eat it/pull it apart..kind of like pizza but not the calories.. It's pretty good. :) :-D

What about other snacks that aren´t found wrapped (like the 100 calorie snacks) at the supermarket? Something that you can prepare with what you have in the the refrigerator etc. Like popcorn.

My 2 favorites:
WW Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sundae for 3 points.

Trader Joe's Organic dark chocolate (73% cacao super dark chocolate with almonds, 1 point per square.



Can you tell I'm a chocoholic? Believe it or not, I can make do with 2 squares of that luscious chocolate bar. It's very satisfying.

The Fiber One Chocolate Bars are 2 points each.


Carol.. the grapes and carrots are excellent to have! Freezing the grapes is also really good and makes you suck on them longer so you want as many

Snacks to have that aren't packaged would definitely be fruits and veggies. Find out when everything is 'in season' in your area and buy those to really get the best flavor from them. If you not a fruit or veggie fan.. definitely have Orange Juice or some sort of fruit juice to get in your daily value. V8 fruit fusion is really good. Also having yogurt on hand is good! If you freeze the Yoplait Whips yogurt it really makes you work for it and enjoy it longer. I had half of one and was full.. where usually unfrozen I would just gobble it up!!! But make sure you freeze only the Whips type, I'm not sure what the regular would do!!!

Grapes have been one of my favorites - but never tried them frozen before - I´m eager to try that!

I really like veggies with fat free ranch dressing.
Also, I make smoothies (yogurt, milk, and frozen or fresh fruit)

I like the 98% fat free popcorn. Also, you can get some fat free creamer for coffee, put a TBSP in some milk and heat it up.

Have you tried edamame? I get the ones in the pods so it takes more work. They can be found in your frozen food section. Very tasty, but my DH says it makes my breath smell like I ate strong smelling veggies - brush after eating.
