You are a riot! I'm looking forward to laughing through your archives.

I always ended up eating all 8 packs in the box and still wasn't satisfied after 800 calories. I could've had what I really wanted instead. It's brilliant marketing but I'll never buy another box. I had my last box in Jan. 08: http://finallyfiguringitout.blogspot.com/2008/01/100-calorie-packs.html



AMEN!

2009-06-09T19:37:03.926-05:00

AMEN!

2009-06-08T21:27:48.593-05:00

I completely agree with you on this. One of my coworkers spends all day eating 3 or 4 different 100 calorie packs and fat free pudding or yogurt at lunch and wonders why she is hungry all day.

I used to eat a lot of these, now I have one pack every other week or so.

I like the Quaker mini delights on my ice cream and the baked cheetos for a chips fix. Have to eat those ones away from home though when I only have one pack with me. Or else I'd eat all 5 @ once...



Right on!

2009-06-08T13:37:34.552-05:00

Right on!

Triple dog dare anyone to ever bet against Jack Sh*t- you are awesome. How are you doing with your goals? You spend so much time composing and looking after other people, I want to make sure you "feel the love" back at you!

2009-06-06T22:08:30.009-05:00

Yeah boiiiii!! Right there with ya. I am a reformed 100 calorie packer. I realized, as you so eloquently pointed out, they are sh*t. No redeeming value at all. I care about my snack choices now. I see snack time as a great chance to add a serving of fruit or veg to my day instead of processed crap that doesn't even really taste good.



Amen and amen.

2009-06-06T19:19:16.706-05:00

Amen and amen.

2009-06-06T14:50:54.867-05:00

Thank you! I hate those packs and will not spend the ridiculous amounts of money on them. And your reasons #32-34 are what drive me nuts--they are an environmental nightmare!!!

2009-06-06T14:24:57.333-05:00

I hear what you're saying, but I'm still waiting for the 100-calorie Chicken Fried Steak with Cream Gravy. Until then, okay, FOR YOU, I'll stick to real Oreos.



Hahaha... I cracked up! Awesome post. Give me 100 ...

2009-06-06T13:38:33.116-05:00

Hahaha... I cracked up! Awesome post. Give me 100 calories worth of fruit any day.

"Have you not cracked Ziploc technology yet?"

Brilliant.

2009-06-06T10:37:07.326-05:00

Problem: Portion control or addiction to junk food?

My answer: Both. It's not either/or.

The only packaged snack packs I've purchased are raw almonds from Trader Joe's (my husband wanted these) and 100 calorie packs of prunes. Now, that I know the amounts, I create my own packs using zip lock bags.

Great list of healthy snacks you've provided.



I wish they'd ban the stupid 100 calorie packs...

2009-06-06T10:31:03.578-05:00

I wish they'd ban the stupid 100 calorie packs ... there are LOTS of great foods you can eat that are better for you, and shockingly LESS than 100 calories per serving. I'd rather eat 1.5 cups of strawberries then some fake food in a bag.



Yeah, they haven't reached our shores yet, so ...

2009-06-06T10:23:03.089-05:00

Yeah, they haven't reached our shores yet, so I do divvy up my own portions.

Mind you, that could all change if they invented 100 cal fish'n'chips packs...

I am anti 100 cal packs so I loved your list! GREAT post!

2009-06-06T09:36:35.742-05:00

Okay, I'm the exception to the rule. Early in my journey I bought the 100-calorie pack of Hostess Cupcakes. I opened the box, was completely disgusted with what I saw, and ate one. I was so disgusted that little tiny thing the size of a quarter--not even a real bite. I did not eat the rest. My son finished the box off.

So I win your double-dog dare.

I also tried the 100-calorie popcorn. My husband finished that up. I prefer my air popped popcorn.

That's it for me, no more 100 cal packs.

2009-06-06T09:36:18.140-05:00

You are preaching to this fat-girl! I am completely anti-100 calorie packs and have posted it several times on my blog. When I had them in my house, I would eat 2-3 of them, or more, a day! All that crap is out of our house now, they were just another way to feed my food addiction because I would say "Oh wow, it's just 100 calories" and by the end of a weekend I would have consumed 1000 calories with them!!!!



That's brilliant! I love the list.

2009-06-06T09:31:01.929-05:00

That's brilliant! I love the list.

2009-06-06T09:13:14.924-05:00

Oooh, agreed, 100 (!!) per cent!

But I'm lucky (I guess?) that packaged snack foods aren't really my weakness. I could take or leave a bag of Oreos. Now if they start coming out with 100 calorie packages of pad thai or cheesecake, I'm in trouble ...



Hmmm I like your list. It's definitely made me...

2009-06-06T08:54:35.930-05:00

Hmmm I like your list. It's definitely made me rethink those 100 cal packs. I'll admit I have purchased them before. My husband is totally allergic to Soy Lecithin too. It gives him terrible break outs! Another reason not to buy them!

2009-06-06T08:40:30.064-05:00

Here, here!!! Although thankfully this phenomenom does not appear to have migrated onto the old British shelves yet, although I'm sure it soon will!!! Saying that....it was only last year that Oreos FINALLY hit our supermarket shelves for real....and I decide to diet now...why!!!????

2009-06-06T08:05:58.597-05:00

You do bring up a lot of valid points (100 in fact!).
HOWEVER - I have found these little packs to help in a couple of instances:
1. When I HAVE to have chocolate, one pack of the chocolate covered pretzels gives me just enough to curb that craving.
2. When I'm in a situation where others are eating junk, I can have one (or two) of these packs and not feel completely left out.

I'm all for healthy whole food, but there is NO WAY I'm going to eat just one Oreo. Just not happening. So if I can curb my craving with 100 calories rather than 1/2 a pack of real Oreos, then that's what I'm gonna do.
