Crunchies Freeze-Dried Fruit in Chocolate

About 5 - 14 pieces (30g): 120 - 130 calories, 7 - 8g total fat (4 - 5g sat fat), 0 - 20mg sodium, 16 - 17g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber, 12 - 15g sugars, 2g protein -- SmartPoints® value 6 - 7*

SNACK ALERT! Freeze-dried fruit is a great alternative to traditional dried fruit (more bang for your calorie buck, and great crunch!), but when you’re craving something a little more decadent, grab a bag of these chocolate-coated fruit snacks! There’s Mango in Dark Chocolate, Blueberries in Dark Chocolate, Strawberries in Milk Chocolate, and (our favorite) Bananas in Milk Chocolate. The chocolate is rich and amazing, and it goes so well with the crunchy fruit center! These are rolling out now -- find them in select Safeway locations. You can also order them by the case on the brand’s website, and the blueberry variety is available on Amazon!

Kite Hill Jalapeño Almond Milk Cream Cheese Style Spread

2 tbsp.: 60 calories, 6g total fat (0g sat fat), 190mg sodium, 2g carbs, 1g fiber, 1g sugars, 2g protein -- SmartPoints® value 2*

We loooove cream cheese with a kick, and this one is a vegan alternative! With a smooth texture, this dairy-free spread is completely plant based and crazy delicious. We’re nuts about the Jalapeño, but check out all the flavors: Chive, Everything, and more. Click to find, and make room in your fridge!

Hippeas Organic Chickpea Puffs in Nacho Vibes and Himalayan Happiness

1 oz.: 130 calories, 4.5 - 5g total fat (0g sat fat), 150 - 230mg sodium, 17 - 18g carbs, 3g fiber, 2g sugars, 4g protein -- SmartPoints® value 4*

These all-natural snacks are like pumped-up cheese puffs -- a little heartier than conventional versions and full of fiber and protein! The new flavors are fantastic (we especially love the Nacho Vibes), but the classics are great too! Find Hippeas at a store near you, or order some on Amazon.
