Private: Attack of the Calorie Packs
It seems like every kind of food or snack is now compressing into some sort of low calorie pack. The explosion of the 100 calorie packs really took off in the past year and the newest, almost laughable, version is the Hostess cupcakes. Three tiny cupcakes in one little package—all for just 100 calories.
Some other fabulous new treats have been turned into low calorie packs. Quaker Mini Delights (rice cakes) with Chocolate Drizzle have just 90 calories a pack. Jell-O pudding came out with three new flavors of sugar-free pudding for just 60 calories per cup: Chocolate Mint Fudge, Moccachino, and Caramel de Leche. The chocolate mint fudge is my favorite because of its rich sugary taste, minus the calories.
It seems silly that foods typically considered junk or bad for you, such as Doritos or Hostess cupcakes, are now being morphed into low calorie packs. But, I think it’s a positive movement because it goes to show that any food can be okay in moderation. There’s no need to completely deny yourself these treats—Just don’t go overboard and eat 9 packs of 100 calorie cupcakes.
