Hershey’s Kisses 100 Calories Snacksters

Hershey 100 calorie Snacksters
One thing’s for sure about Hershey’s 100 Calorie Snacksters: There’s no lack of variety. Each .74-ounce bag contains cereal puffs, Mini Kisses Confetti Cookies, Kissables Chocolate Candies and Mini Kisses Milk Chocolates. Either Hershey was trying to unload leftovers or show off the company’s never-ending fount of ideas to tweak Kisses. If only the flavor matched the creativity. Maybe I’m a snack snob, but to me, these packs were just weird. If you’re not sure what type of chocolate fix you need (puff cereal, candy-coated or sprinkled) they might be a good choice. To me, it would be cheaper, and more satisfying, to get my 100 calories from 4 regular Hershey’s Kisses.

Hershey’s Sticks dark chocolate
If a sliver of chocolate is enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, consider Hershey Sticks. The dark chocolate variety packs only 60 calories into each individually wrapped stick. They come nine to a pack. To add to the experience, consider using one as a stir stick in coffee or low-fat hot chocolate.

100 calorie pack Reese’s peanut butter wafers
Reese’s has managed to cram a lot of peanut buttery taste into this 100 calorie wafer bar. In fact, you get two bars in the pack for the same 100 calories. They’re small, but with the rich taste, it feeds your fix just fine. They don’t skimp on the chocolate coating either. So crunchy and creamy, you’ll forget you were craving a Reese’s peanut butter cup.

100 calorie Oreo candy bites
Nabisco has somehow managed to smoosh up Oreo cookies into a ball, cover them with chocolate and still fit enough of them into a 100 calorie pack to make for a satisfying little treat. These candy bites fit the bill for that sweet tooth craving; if you’re looking to stave off hunger grabbing a pack of crackers might be a better idea. The Oreo bites are dense and rich, and they do taste good. I just don’t know if this would be my first choice in consuming 100 calories.

Hershey Special Dark 100 calorie bar
What better way to start a new year than with deep, dark chocolate? One member of the Hershey’s 100 Calorie Bars line is Special Dark, a slender (way slender) relative of the company’s classic dark chocolate bar. When we first unwrapped the bar, which come seven to a box, it was even smaller than we’d imagined. But the intensity of the chocolate made up for the small size. Though some find Hershey’s dark chocolate too bitter compared to pricier brands, we weren’t disappointed by the taste. We were still hungry, though.
