The cafeteria, ever health conscious (and I say that in a good way) started carrying those trendy “100 Calorie Packs” of snack foods. These are a MUST HAVE if you are trying to reduce your food intake without completely depriving yourself. 100 calories worth of Doritos may not be much, but it’s better than no Doritos, or even worse, the Big Grab of Doritos, which is what I used to eat.
Today I tried the Chips Ahoy thin crisps. I did not have much hope for these, I’ll admit. I thought they would be along the lines of communion wafers with magic marker dots to represent what should have been chocolate chips. Color me surprised! While much smaller and denser than a regular Chips Ahoy, those chips, while small, were real semi-sweet chocolate! They tasted like cookies, even if not exactly like a home made TollHouse cookie. But for a 100 calorie “get the snack monkey off my back” treat, these rate an A in my book.
See Also: Newton Minis Strawberry. If you like Newtons, these might do the trick. I’m one of those freaky people who actually likes Fig Newtons. But these were a nice alternative. I had a bag the other day, and enjoyed them. I have a bag in front of me that I’m going to save for the weekend, but it says 130 calories a bag. So it’s higher than 100, but it’s made with whole grain wheat flour (!) so it has that going for it. Neither one is recommended for a low carb diet, but I definitely recommend them for snacks. And the 100 calorie snack bags of Doritos. Those seriously and completely rock.
