100 Calorie Packs = 0 Nutritional Value

July 16, 2008

It’s afternoon snack time, so you grab a cute, itsy-bitsy bag of peanut butter cookie crips before heading into the next rehearsal. Ten minutes later, the hunger returns. Shocking! 100 Calorie Packs, now available in any processed carb imaginable, lack real fiber and vitamins needed to provide fuel and make you feel full. Nature offers way more useful and energizing snacks, like bananas (100 calories), or an apple with one tablespoon of peanut butter (140 calories). And you won’t waste extra wrappers and extra cash on convenient bags of faux snacks.
