Do Good Things Really Come in Small Packages?

  • I'm glad the writer gave alternatives and mentioned the true fact that you can save money and just bag your own snacks. It's take more time, but I like to say to myself I'm worth it and I always feel good knowing that I did something healthy for my temple.
  • I tried one, but I ended up throwing most of them away because it was a treat I really liked, and I was afraid I was going to go wild and eat them all in one go.

    Plus I kind of want to get away from the kind of food offered in those packs, and eat healthier foods...
  • I dont buy them....
  • I should add, that I have a box, it's open, and I've had it for 1.5 months. I don't just
    snack on cookies. I usually have nuts, or popcorn for a snack.
  • I only buy the Oreo 100 calorie snack packs, because they don't come in any other size.
    I may be the only person on earth who doesn't like the cream filling! The 100 cal packs
    are just crisp chocolate cookies. I like them a lot. I can usually stop after one bag, but
    sometimes I have 2.
  • Great alternatives for snacks. Doing your own is much better and cheaper.
  • I make my own 100 cal snacks using half cup and one cup Glad and Ziplock containers and an inexpensive scale from Walmart. Cheap and easy.
  • I like the popcorn mini-bags. I don't eat any others, like the Oreo ones. I don't eat the regular sized Oreos for that matter: if I'm going to have dessert, I want a delicious home-baked one.
  • Actually, I like these for quick 'snacks on the go" but never considered the environmental side of the issue even though I'm usually on top of this. Thanks for the heads up - they won't be purchased again.
  • I love cheezits, and I buy the 100 cal packs. I pack one in my lunch and have it at work as a mid afternoon treat instead of hitting the vending machine. You have to consciously open another pack in order to consume more than 100 cals, it's a built in warning!
    Nobody claims that it is a "healthy" snack, but it IS a better option than consuming a whole box of the same thing, or a greasy bag of chips or fat-and-sugar laden candy bar. If you know you can't control yourself, don't buy them to start with, but I think it's a great idea to have a splurge item conveniently pre-packaged into reasonable servings. The fact that they are expensive ought to be a further deterrant to oversplurging, it works for me.
    Just my opinion.
  • this article is right on for me. I purchased a box of 100 cal snacks and for some reason I couldn't just have one. It must be the stuff they put in them. It makes you crave more. So long story short, never again will I buy these.
  • To me, they're just begging for you to eat the whole box, since it's 'only 100 calories'-plus I'm cheap.
    I live in the UK. We don't have them.
  • Guess I'm too frugal to buy any snack packs and they sound dry and boring to me. I prepare my own snacks from good wholesome foods. DH and I do keep Fiber One bars to carry when out shopping and need a snack.
    I would buy them when they were on sale and I had a coupon, but this article even has me second guessing that! But I don't think I'll ever buy the Quaker Minis 100 calorie packs again after seeing that they have sooo much saturated fat! It's not even real chocolate! 100 calories is fine, but when those calories have 4 to 6 grams of unsaturated fat, I think I'll pass... not worth it.
