Klondike Slim-a-Bear

Klondike Slim-a-Bear

My husband brought this box of Klondike Slim-a-Bear 100-calorie ice cream bars home from the store the other day, and before I could taste-test them, he and our son had eaten half of eight bars in the box! So, that’s a ringing endorsement right there. The Slim-a-Bear bars (these are vanilla) are smaller than the palm of my hand but flavorful. The chocolate coating tastes like caramel and the ice cream is slow to melt, so you can take your time eating this Klondike bar. The size and low-fat ice cream help bring Slim-a-Bear in at 100 calories. My only question is, if it’s round, can they still call it a “bar”?

Smartfood popcorn 100 calorie pack

100 calorie Smartfood popcorn

100 calorie Smartfood popcorn

I’ve always enjoyed Smartfood popcorn, which has a fresh-popped taste and just the right amount of seasoning. So I was excited to see these 100 calorie packs. The 5/8 ounce serving is larger than it sounds, and the White Cheddar Cheese flavor gives the popcorn a chip-like taste, which is not surprising since Smartfood is a product of Frito-Lay. Another point in its favor: Popcorn is a great snack “bridge” between meals, and the prepopped variety means you won’t annoy people in your office with microwave popcorn smell. And you won’t have to share.
