Hey, you! CRAVE Snickers but don't wanna spend close to 300 calories and more than a dozen grams of fat on a single bar? OBSESSED with Oreos but can't be trusted around them without polishing off an entire row? (There are 800 calories in that thing!) No worries. HG has ALL the answers...
The bummer about a Snickers bar is that it's fat-packed and calorie-dense for its size without much nutritional payoff. Luckily, there are smarter options out there...
Snickers Miniatures and Fun Size Snickers Bars PER SERVING (2 Miniatures or 1 Fun Size bar): 80 - 85 calories, 4 - 4.5g fat, 42 - 45mg sodium, 10.5 - 11g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 8.5 - 9g sugars, 1.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*
Same exact Snickers goodness, but in smaller sizes. Just beware -- they come in HUGE bags that almost beg you to keep eating. So grab one (or two) and hide the rest.
Kudos Granola Bars with Snickers Brand Chunks PER SERVING (1 bar): 100 calories, 3g fat, 70mg sodium, 16g carbs, 1g fiber, 9g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
For a Snicker-esque fix that isn't sold by the sackful, try one of these. Kudos, Kudos!
Snickers Minis Ice Cream Bars PER SERVING (1 bar): 90 calories, 6g fat, 30mg sodium, 9g carbs, 0g fiber, 8g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
HG Hot Couple: Athens Mini Fillo Shells + Snickers PER SERVING (2 Snickers-filled shells): 91 calories, 4.75g fat, 53mg sodium, 11g carbs, <0.5g fiber, 6g sugars, <1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*
SO fun for a party! Or an emergency Snickers fix. Or any time you have four friends over. Do you REALLY need a reason to make these? We think not...
Sure, the twisting and dunking is fun, but that's HARDLY why people love Oreos. It's something about having JUST enough chocolate intensity in the cookie that tells your brain, "THIS IS OREO!" That said, sitting down with an open package of those cookies is a calorie catastrophe waiting to happen. You need portion control NOW...
Nabisco 100 Cal Oreo Snack Cakes PER SERVING (1 package): 100 calories, 4g fat, 135mg sodium, 15g carbs, 1g fiber, 9g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
