Bob and David (founders of Sensible Foods) are sensible guys. They figure, why not take the goodness of real corn, and turn it into a perfectly sweet, crunchy snack? Awesome! These dried veggie treats are perfect alone, or on top of salads. And they come in convenient 70 calorie, 3g fiber bags (making them just 1 WW point if you count!). Even better is the fact that they come in a whole slew of fruit flavors too, like Orchard Blend (apples, peaches and apricots), Tropical Blend (pineapples, mangoes, bananas, and apples)/fontfamily>, and Cherry Blend (cherries, strawberries, and blueberries). Plus, these snacks are 100% natural - made with JUST fruit or corn. No oil. No preservatives. No NOTHING. These treats are available at some Whole Foods locations, but they're a little hard to find in stores. For now you can order them online at sensiblefoods.com.
We LOOOVE potato chips, so we never get tired of all the new chip swaps that keep showing up on the shelves of our local market. We're especially excited about Guiltless Gourmet's brand new line of potato-rific crisps. These new baked snacks have just 100 calories per serving, and come in 4 great flavors -- Au Gratin, Pico De Gallo, Memphis BBQ, and Sea Salt. In the past, Guiltless Gourmet has been hit or miss with their chip snacks (some of their tortilla chips are a bit cardboardy if you ask us), but these are FANTASTIC! The best part is, they're easier to find than most other potato chip swaps - they should be at a supermarket near you right now. Chip chip hooray!
OK, Tootsie Pops have been around FOREVER. And truth be told, even the full sugar ones aren't all that high in calories. The regular size ones clock in at 60 per pop, while the minis have around 15 calories each. But now our friends at Tootsie have created a pop that's perfect for those who need to watch their sugar intake. Sugar Free Tootsie Pops are BRILLIANT! They're tiny in size so you get three to a serving, which is fun. And they're made with Splenda. They also come in 4 flavors -- strawberry, raspberry, tangerine, and chocolate. Each pop has just around 12 calories so feel free to pop it up all day long! Wonder if this means sugar free Tootsie Rolls are on the way...
100 cookies for 100 calories? Is that actually possible? Barry says it is! And he knows his stuff. After all, he's the guy that brought us those out of this world Twists. His newest brilliant creation takes portion control to a whole new level. And a controlled portion of 100 makes us giddy! These cute little teeny tiny meringues melt in your mouth, and are ideal as a snack, or a yummy topping on your frozen yogurt or even in your hot chocolate (guilt-free, of course!). Both the vanilla and chocolate flavors are great. And definitely a fantastic way to satisfy a sweet tooth. Find these adorable critters at Wal-Mart or online at barrysbakery.com.
