We chewed on some of the latest 100-calorie packs of crunchy stuff. Now we're blabbing
about 'em... 
Chex 100 Calorie Snack, Chocolate Caramel

PER SERVING (1 pouch): 100 calories, 3.5g fat, 190mg sodium, 17g carbs, 0g fiber, 6g sugars, 1g protein -- POINTS® value 2*

What is it? A lovely pouch full of Chex pieces that are coated in either cocoa-flavored or caramel-y stuff.

Portion 411... General Mills squeezes about 50 Chex squares into each little bag. It's actually a pretty nice portion.

Tastes like... This stuff basically tastes like Corn Chex cereal that's been covered with sweet flavorings. So it's a part cereal/part sweet snack food.

The lowdown... We love Corn Chex, so we dig this a lot. There are WAY more of the chocolate-dusted squares than the caramel ones -- and the caramel ones are sooo much better (they're AWESOME!). But all in all, this is a fine 100-calorie treat. We'd buy it again.

 

100 Calorie Mini Bites Lay's Cracker Crisps, Delightfully Crispy

PER SERVING (1 package): 100 calories, 3.5g fat, 200mg sodium, 17g carbs, 1g fiber, 3g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 2*

What is it? A totally unique blend of crackers and potato chips.

Portion 411... Each pack contains about 36 li'l squares.

Tastes like... Each of these super-thin crisps tastes like the lovechild of a cracker and a Lay's Classic Potato Chip, with a teeny tiny hint of onion & garlic flavor. They're AWESOME!

The lowdown... WE LOVE THESE SO MUCH!!! For some reason, the portion size seems more satisfying than a serving of regular baked potato chips. They're like nothing we've ever tasted before -- and we will DEFINITELY be enjoying these again, and again, and again (but hopefully not all at one time, pouch after pouch, in one sitting).

 

100-Calorie Bags of Hershey's Kisses Mini Cookies, Chocolate Chip

PER SERVING (1 package): 100 calories, 5g fat, 40mg sodium, 14g carbs, <1g fiber, 4g sugars, 1g protein -- POINTS® value 2*

What are they? Chubby little Kiss-shaped chocolate chip cookies, huddled in a small bag.

Portion 411... You get about 17 of these tiny cookie drops per pouch. Not a hugely satisfying portion.

Tastes like... They taste okay but a little like cheap, dry chocolate chip cookies. At first, we liked them a lot. But after eating a few more, the honeymoon was over.

The lowdown... While we'd eat 'em if there were nothing else to snack on, we're not going to go out of our way to find these again. We'd take the Chips Ahoy! Thin Crisps 100 Calorie Packs over these any day. Especially since you can easily crush those and use 'em as a fun topping.
