Those of you that follow my blog probably know that I started a Meme called “Think Thin Thursdays” in order to keep myself accountable during my weight loss journey (I’ve lost 6.2 pounds so far!). My main problem is that I am a snacker. I like to have a snack after lunch and another before bed. This has proven to be one of my major hurdles!
So, when I was contacted by Little Debbie to set up a review of their new 100 calorie snacks, I was all ears! After the New Year, a HUGE box showed up on my front porch filled with wonderful, yummy treats…..8 whole boxes to be exact! I was ready to dive right in and start trying all the new varieties, but I thought…..wait, that would be 800 calories of snacks! Kind of counterproductive, don’t you think?
Here’s how it works: Each person received two Little Debbie 100 calorie snacks at random. Both treats were sniffed, tasted, and even in some cases licked (I have weird friends, what can I say) and a winner was chosen. Snacks were eliminated until we had an Ultimate Snack Winner!
Chocolate Nutty Bar: “A nutty, crunchy, satisfying treat. The peanut butter was melt in your mouth soft, not dry like some snacks. Nice combination of sweet and salty. I would buy this snack.”
Triple Fudge Brownies: “Great chocolate flavor. Dense and chewy, but somewhat dry. Single serving is small.”
Snow Puffs: “Filling. Medley of marshmallow, chocolate and coconut. Tastes like a brownie on the bottom. I would buy this snack.”
Yellow Cake: “Really sweet and cakey. Moist. Icing really tastes like buttercream. Do they sell 100 calories packs of just the icing? I would buy this snack.”
Chocolate cake: “My first thought when I saw the snack was that it was small, but once I tasted it all my worries were put aside. The cake is dense and moist, definitely gives your mouth the impression that it’s bigger than it appears. I’m a sucker for frosting and this cake satisfied my snacking urge!”
Marshmallow Treats: “I’m not a big lover of store bought marshmallow snacks, but this one was a nice surprise! The size is large enough that it’s satisfying and has a wonderful buttery taste. This snack is probably the most similar to homemade that I have found.”
Nutty Bar PB Stix: “At first, I didn’t like how small the snack appeared. But, after finishing the snack, I was surprisingly satisfied. I like that the wafers are made with whole wheat. Great taste!”
Gingerbread cookies: “I really like these! Soft baked, sweet and spicy! Perfect with hot chocolate!”
After round two, only two snacks remained:
I decided to let my toughest critic choose the Ultimate Snack winner. To see first hand which one she liked the best, check out this video:
