As much I as I would to make hand make most of my snacks at home, the reality is I just don’t usually have time to whip up a batch of homemade cheese crackers, the know how to even attempt to make something like a black bean crisp, or the desire (let’s be real) to take this on every week. So today let’s share our favorite snacks from the supermarket no special ordering, no kitchen time just plain old, packaged, yumminess.
1. Cape Cod Naturally Simple Popcorn, around 140 calories per serving, 3-4 PointsPlus®
Being from Massachusetts, I have a soft spot for anything from this company. Since I actively try to stay away from their chips since I want to eat the whole bag, I was excited to see their new healthier popcorn. In flavors like Kettle Korn, Sea Salt, and White Cheddar; it makes a perfect snack on the go with serving sizes up to 4 cups.
2. Lean Cuisine Stuffed Soft Pretzels, 4 pretzel bites for 210 calories, 5 PointsPlus®
Lately I have been staying away from microwave meals, but these stuffed pretzels caught my eye a few weeks back. They make a great snack or meal and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed them. If you have the time, cook them in the oven or crisp them up for a minute in the toaster oven after nuking for even better flavor.
3. Popchips Veggie Chips, 120 calories, 3 PointsPlus®
I love that so many companies are beginning to hide veggies in their products and Popchips is the latest to jump on board. The new Popchips with veggies have all the great flavor of traditional Popchips with some added veggies.
4. Kashi Black Bean Crisps, 130 calories, 3 PointsPlus®
The new Kashi Black Bean Chili Lime Crisps are definitely my favorite new snack. You get 27 crisps per serving and they are perfect for dipping. I have been dipping them in hummus, skinny queso, and Trader Joe’s spinach and artichoke dip all week.
5. Special K Chocolate Covered Pretzels, 100 calories, 3 PointsPlus®
Looking for something sweet and salty? These chocolate covered pretzels are the perfect snack. They come in pre-portioned pouches (bonus because I could easily down the bag) and make the perfect snack on their own or thrown into some yogurt or light ice cream.
