Jello pudding 100 Calorie Pack

Jello pudding 100 Calorie Pack

Jello (a Nabisco/Kraft brand) has dozens of pudding varieties to offer, from nonfat to fancy mousse flavors. I’ve tried several of the 100 Calorie Packs and they’re just as tasty and one might expect from Jello. Varieties include vanilla/chocolate combo pack, chocolate-vanilla swirl, tapioca and devil’s food. They are all fat-free, but very rich in flavor. If you want to add a little extra treat, put some nonfat whipped cream or Cool Whip on top. The 100-calorie Jello packs often show up at discount stores such as Grocery Outlet, so you can get a real deal on these!

Little Debbie 100 Calorie Marshmallow Treats

I think of the 100 Calorie Little Debbie marshmallow treat as the poor man’s Rice Krispie Treat. A little gummy in texture and almost too sweet, the Little Debbie snack lacks the crunch and flavor combination of its higher-end counterpart. However, the treats are affordable (the pack I purchased was under $2) and portable, so I can’t complain — too much. Also, with an elongated bar shape rather than a thick square, these snacks are easier to handle and munch on the go.

Kraft Jet-Puffed ChocoMallow marshmallows

Kraft chocolate marshmallows

I’ve never really thought of marshallows as a snack. They’re more like an ingredient or topping. Maybe I’m biased and have post-traumatic issues from the marshmallow man in Ghostbusters. But when I found these mini packs of Kraft Jet-Puffed ChocoMallows miniature marshmallow, with the bag proclaiming they’re fat-free and “great for snacking,” I figured I’d give them a whirl. They’re tasty enough: powdery on the outside and chewy, with a light chocolate taste. And they come in at 90 calories. My 3-year-old was much more impressed, and wanted to eat an entire 1-ounce bag.
