GIRLS BITE OUT
Craving decadent snacks and sugary treats? Forget it! Check out these tasty
tricksters from your pal HG. And start chewing!
This tastes JUST LIKE... Swedish Fish!
Special K Bliss Bar, Raspberry
PER SERVING (1 bar): 90 calories, 2g fat, 70mg sodium, 17g carbs, <1g
fiber, 9g sugars, 1g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
Until recently, we couldn't quite figure out what flavor red Swedish Fish are
supposed to be (strawberry? cherry?). But now that we've tasted this
Raspberry Bliss bar from Special K, we know with 100% certainty that it's
raspberry. The bar is really good, with a crispy cereal crunch and a chocolate
bottom. But the best part is the sweet, jammy, fruit-flavored stuff in every
bite, which tastes so much like our favorite red fish-shaped gummies. So if
you're the type who could chew up a pound of sugary red Fish in one sitting,
grab one of these 90-calorie bars instead.
These taste JUST LIKE... Grape Popsicles!
Disney Magic Selections Sugar Free In An Instant Drink Mix Sticks, Grape
PER SERVING (1 packet): 5 calories, 0g fat, 15mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g
fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein -- POINTS® value 0*
In a world filled with many watered down drink mix flavors, Disney's
definitely stand out because they're insanely potent. Each gulp of this grape
drink tastes exactly like a bite of a grape Popsicle (minus the drippy mess)!
We also love the fact that they're CLEAR, so there's no fake and scary purple
color being added to your beverage! How cool is that?! These things may be
targeted at kids, but we LOVE 'em. In fact, the HG HQ is always stocked with
these sticks. They're a Kroger exclusive item (click here for supermarkets
that are part of Kroger Co., like Ralphs), but we're hoping to see 'em sold
These taste JUST LIKE... Cheez Doodles!
Quaker Mini Delights, Buttered Popcorn
PER SERVING (1 bag): 90 calories, 3g fat, 180mg sodium, 15g carbs, 1g
fiber, 0g sugars, 1g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
Even though these airy little crunchies are supposed to be flavored like
buttered popcorn, they definitely taste a bit cheesy to us. And the combo of
light airiness and slightly cheese-flavored powdered coating reminds us of
delicious cheese puffs (or Cheez Doodles!). Yum! These pre-portioned
snacks are definitely lower in calories and fat than cheese puffs, and we're
able to control ourselves around 'em and stick with just one bag. Woohoo!
These taste JUST LIKE... Cream Cheese!
The Laughing Cow Spreadable Cheese Wedges, Light Original Swiss
PER SERVING (1 wedge): 35 calories, 2g fat, 260mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g
fiber, 1g sugars, 2.5g protein -- POINTS® value 1*
If you like everything about full-fat cream cheese except all the annoying
calories and fat grams it brings with it, and if you simply can't STAND the fat-
free stuff, you should try using Laughing Cow cheese wedges in Light Original
Swiss instead. HG readers KNOW we're always using these cheese hunks in
recipes. But, they're PERFECT as a straight-up cream cheese swap (even
better, since they've got a subtle Swiss flavor to 'em). They spread like
cream cheese, and they're just as creamy. Mmmmmm!
These taste JUST LIKE... French Fries!
LesserEvil Krinkle Sticks, Classic SeaSalt
PER SERVING (1 cup): 110 calories, 2.5g fat, 310mg sodium, 20g carbs, 2g
fiber, 0g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
Are you crazy about french fries? We are! Especially those crinkle-cut ones
you find at diners. Yum!!! Well imagine a plate of fries that have had all the
grease and tons of horrible fat SUCKED out of 'em, and you'll be imagining
LesserEvil's Krinkle Sticks. They're cute, fat, baked potato snacks that are
shaped like fries and come in a slew of flavors -- but we like the Classic
SeaSalt best. We even dunk 'em in ketchup, which makes 'em taste even
more like fries. Awesome!
This tastes JUST LIKE... Banana Nut Bread!
VitaTop, Banana Nut
PER SERVING (1 VitaTop): 90 calories, 2.5g fat, 125mg sodium, 21g carbs,
5g fiber, 0g sugars, 5g protein -- POINTS® value 1*
Okay, it may not seem like much of a stretch for a banana nut muffin top to
taste like banana nut bread. But most guilt-free, carb-based snacks that
attempt to tackle sweet banana flavor taste more like banana scratch 'n sniff
stickers (ew!). Not this baby! We decided this oldie-but-goodie certainly
deserves a spot on this list! It doesn't just taste like a slice of banana nut
bread, either -- it actually tastes like a mini-sized loaf of the stuff. It's as if
you're getting a giant section of that moist top part of the bread where all the
nuts hang out. And like all its Vita pals, this Top is packed with fiber. This
one's also sugar-free (a bonus for diabetics and sugar-avoiders). Another
