In my last blog, the Savvy Snacker rained on your dieting parade by calling out the five WORST snacks of 100 calories or less. Sorry about that. But the clouds have parted and the sun is shining – and I am ready to roll out 5 GREAT SNACKS that are the perfect fit for quelling between-meal cravings.

So here they are - the fab five snacks of 100 calories or less; our picks are based on taste, nutrition and how full they leave you feeling!

Sugar-Free Jell-O Snack Cups

Not only do these have only 10 calories, but they really do fill you up too! The nutrition value is not high, but it certainly won't do any damage whatsoever to your diet with only 10 calories, 10mg of sodium and 1g of protein. You can have several of these little cups without guilt, but trust me when I tell you that one will fill you up nicely! Tip: To make your Jell-O cup an even tastier treat spoon on a dollop of fat-free Cool-Whip for a mere 20 calories more.

Fudge StripesKeebler Mini Fudge Stripe Cookies

I really wasn’t expecting much when I decided to try these mini cookies, but after just one I knew these things are amazing! You get a decent amount of little cookies - enough to ward off your chocolate cravings. Sugar and fat content is what you would expect, but just one of these little bags is far better than munching a whole pack of full-size Fudge Stripe ...    Continue

@ 3:44pm ET on January 15, 2010 I LOOOOVE the keebler striped cookies! YUMMY! ~Sara :o)
@ 6:08pm ET on January 18, 2010 Bit disappointed that all the featured snacks are processed pre-packaged food. Being from Australia, I haven't seen most of these brands, but the equivalents here are really expensive compared to fresh whole foods. I don't find it helpful myself. What's wrong with a handful of nuts and dried fruit, or a carrot and piece of low-fat cheese, or a cup of soup as a snack?
@ 7:56pm ET on January 18, 2010 Re my previous comment, now I've read the 'worst' snacks, I realise that the point of the review was to look at pre-packaged snacks, so understand that now.
However, I still think it's best for people to look first at fresh foods. If you're out, it's not hard to carry a carrot, apple, etc. I always keep a nut bar in my bag for snack attacks.
