100 calorie Ritz Snack Mix

Ritz Snack Mix

These packs are more filling than they are tasty. Ritz has packed multi-grain Ritz Bits, stick pretzels and what looks like Wheat Chex and Cheese Nips in these packs. They’re a little bland and dry, but the saltiness combined with a nice bit of carby goodness makes for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Still, I’d prefer plain Ritz.

Hostess 100 calorie Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cakes

Hostess 100 calorie pack streusel
I’ve been waiting to post about this 100 calorie pack from Hostess because it’s one I’m truly passionate about. And believe me, I’m passionate about snacks. I’ve bought these Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cakes at least three times (watch for coupons; there are a lot of Hostess ones out there right now). They’re moist, they don’t skimp on the cinnamon topping and they’re perfect to grab if you’re on the way out the door to work having skipped breakfast yet again. They’re the perfect complement to morning coffee, and they’ll definitely tide you over until lunchtime. Especially if you eat two packs (just kidding!).

Quaker Cinnamon Streusel Mini Delights

Quaker Cinnamon Streusel
The battle to drive down the calorie count continues, with Quaker’s Mini Delights coming in at a mere 90 calories. Take that, 100 calorie packs. But seriously. These cinnamon streusel “light crispy multigrain cakes” look dry and bland but taste surprisingly good. The crispy base tastes like a sweet rice cake, and there’s frosting drizzled over the top. I have to be honest: I put off trying these because I didn’t think they’d be that great, but I was pleasantly surprised. I’d still take a Hostess 100 calorie pack or Entenmann’s over these any day.

Hershey’s Special Dark 100 Calorie Bar

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.
