Milton's Craft Bakers Gluten Free Baked Crackers

14 crackers (30g): 130 calories, 4g total fat (0–0.5g sat. fat), 200–260mg sodium, 20–22g carbs, 1–2g fiber, 1–3g total sugars (1–3g added sugars), 2g protein
WW Points® value 4*
Don’t write these off as “just crackers”—this snack is the sleeper hit of the year! We love Milton and all his goodies, but ESPECIALLY this line of crackers. Consider these the new Wheat Thins: They’re a tiny bit sweet, perfectly crunchy, and so good you’ll wanna eat the whole bag (and even if you do, it’s not the end of the world). In six wholesome varieties, they’re literally Lisa’s favorite crackers! Click here to find them, or order from Amazon now. Like, NOW now.

Grillo's Fresh Pickle de Gallo Pickle-Based Salsa

2 tbsp. (30g): 5 calories, 0g total fat (0g sat. fat), 160mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 1g total sugars (0g added sugars), 0g protein
WW Points® value 0*
This is THE condiment of the year! Finely chopped dill pickles mingle with onions, red bell peppers, and garlic in this dreamy topping. It’s a little like pickle relish, only better and fresher. We’ve tried the Mild and Hot, and the flavor is the perfect accent for savory foods like hot dogs and sandwiches… We’d put this on any of our cheeseburger-inspired recipes, especially these cheeseburger tacos. Look for it at select grocers: Wegmans, Bristol Farms, Kroger, Costco, Whole Foods, etc. (We’ve seen it in the refrigerated case sorted with the fresh pickles OR the fresh salsas, so we suggest checking both spots.)

THINaddictives Pistachio Pomegranate Almond Thin Cookies

1 pack (23g): 100 calories, 2.5g total fat (0g sat. fat), 75mg sodium, 17g carbs, 1g fiber, 8g total sugars (6g added sugars), 3g protein
WW Points® value 4*
We’re longtime fans of these slim biscotti (sometimes labeled as Nonni’s), and this flavor combo brings an unexpectedly great duo to the cookies we know and love! The 3-cookie packs are a perfect snack size… and for 100 calories? Yes! Peruse six more varieties here, in their snazzy new packaging. This flavor has been spotted at select Costco stores and can be found on Amazon, but we suspect this flavor is on its way out, so get yours while you can!

Realsy Peanut Butter Dates

3 dates: 180 calories, 4–5g total fat (0.5–1g sat. fat), 77–123mg sodium, 32g carbs, 4g fiber, 27g total sugars (0g added sugars), 3–5g protein
WW Points® value 5*
Finally, we have these perfect morsels of goodness. Chewy dates stuffed with creamy nut butter in portion-controlled packs—what more could you want? Choose from Almond Butter, Peanut Butter, or Peanut Butter Cacoa. These satisfy a candy-bar craving in a simple-ingredient way! Click to find them at a store near you, or order online from Amazon or the Realsy website.
