Facts on 100-Calorie Snack Packs

Do Good Things Really Come in Small Packages?


  • Great article. But I don't buy them. I make my own. - 11/9/2013 1:24:38 AM
  • I purchased them only twice in the past and I did eat several packs at one time. I don't plan to purchase more. - 10/13/2013 7:27:32 PM
    I will eat a packet maybe every other day. They do fill me up for close to 3 hours, which is fine. Very very rarely will I eat 2 in a day, spaced out. But right now I have 2 boxes still more than half full. They are good and it helps I don't need the chocolate ones. Limits my choices on which to choose. - 7/4/2013 12:59:09 PM
    I love them! I am a waitress and leae them around at work and instead of a dinner roll or frys I grab one to stop my cravings! - 5/2/2013 9:22:29 PM
  • I do buy them from our Amish Scratch and Dent store, but I don't "abuse" them, and I try to look for items with higher fiber and protein. :-) - 4/20/2013 10:44:12 AM
  • It is interesting to me that people would buy expense snacks and then consume two or three. It show that the answer to or issues are not outside us. - 2/16/2013 12:09:23 PM
  • I really believe what this article says!! I bought a box of Slim Fast snack bars, they're 100 calories each (I think). so one day I was craving a piece of chocolate, and ended up eating 3 of the bars, which totally defeats the purpose!! - 2/16/2013 10:42:22 AM
  • I used to buy the 100 cal packs. I don't any more. I do however make my own using the snk baggies. I'm a weighin' measuring fool! - 2/16/2013 7:52:30 AM

    I find these are much too expensive. I buy snack size ziplock bags and measure out my own snacks. I can control it better this's worth the time I take to count or measure snacks out. - 11/29/2012 10:04:27 PM

    You have to be careful, many of the foods listed are high in salt which will put on fluid - I can gain 4 pounds just in water weight with salty food!! I avoid it at all cost!
    The little 100 cal packs are nice because they can stay without going bad and truly be for emergency only!
    I do love carrying apples, carrots, bananas and raw almonds - they are always good. They satisfy the sweet and crunch that's often needed. - 11/24/2012 8:10:07 AM
  • I love 100 calorie packs. They give me something to vanquish my cravings without leaving me with an entire bag or box of temptation! - 10/7/2012 7:47:08 PM
  • This report is very helpful to me. Gonna make some bags 0f peanuts when I am on the go that will be a cheap snack. Als celery with Peanut butter I like that. Susan - 8/31/2012 3:30:30 PM
  • I would lose weight simply because after I bought these I would have no money left over for other food, lol. I guess they are helpful to some people, but not me. Snack foods do not satisfy my hunger pangs, esp. in such mini quantities. - 8/31/2012 11:01:36 AM
    I bought a food scale at the local drug store ($9.99) and it helps me. I create my own single serving baggies of things so I have them convenient. I like to have 100 cal packs of cheerios in the car, because life can get crazy-busy. It's inexpensive, filling and nutritious, and easy to log on my nutrition page. - 8/31/2012 10:51:14 AM

    Snack packs work for me sometimes with nuts or foods that aren't too sweet , and have some fiber. If I buy cookies they are too sweet for me and I end up eating the whole box. - 8/31/2012 10:00:51 AM
