Little Debbie 100 Calorie Snack Review
I recently won the Little Debbie 100 Calorie Giveaway from BeingFrugal.net. When I got the box, I first marvelled at the nice array of snacks in front of me. Then another thought occurred. Why not review these? There they were, sitting right in front of me. All I had to do was type up my thoughts as I ate each one. And that’s just what I did. (NOTE: I did not do this all in one sitting. Little Debbie 100 Calorie snacks are not good for any weight loss plan if you eat eight of them at once!)
Nutty Bar PB Stix (100 calories, 6g fat):
I happen to love sugar wafer cookies. Of course, they are diet no-no’s so I’ve gone without for awhile. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this was basically a sugar wafer cookie. It wasn’t any old sugar wafer cookie. This one was filled with peanut butter, another food love of mine. Sugar wafer cookie meets peanut butter? How can you go wrong?
Nutty Bar (90 calories, 5g fat):
Of course, if there’s another food love I have, it’s chocolate. So I was really excited about this cookie. It’s just like the last cookie, but dipped in milk chocolate. By far, this was my favorite cookie.
Gingerbread Cookies (100 calories, 3g fat):
The first thing I noticed about these as I opened their package was the lovely gingerbread smell. For some reason, I was expecting them to be hard, but they were soft and chewy. Quite tasty. Unfortunately, NHL and JSL caught me eating these and demanded their own so I lost two cookies to my kids.
Snow Puffs (100 calories, 2g fat):
This is the one I was dreading the most and it had nothing to do with Little Debbie. I have had an aversion to coconut since I was very young. In the interests of overcoming my aversion, however, I tried this cookie. It was actually pretty good. The coconut flavor doesn’t overwhelm the cookie and the marshmallow fluff gives it a nice, chewy consistency. It’s something like a cross between a Moon Pie and a Whoopie Pie with some coconut added.
Triple Fudge Brownies (100 calories, 4g fat):
I’ll admit that this one disappointed me at first. The brownie is quite tiny. I guess I shouldn’t have expected more for 100 calories. (The person who figures out how to make a decent sized brownie that only has 100 calories and actually tastes good will be my personal hero.) Despite the small size, the brownie was quite tasty. Nice chocolate flavor and texture.
Yellow Cakes (100 calories, 3g fat):
A small piece of cake. Like the Gingerbread Cookies, this cake had a pleasant aroma. Biting into it revealed that the cake was quite sweet and moist. It was very tasty.
Chocolate Cakes (100 calories, 3g fat):
This one is basically like the Yellow Cakes, only made of chocolate. As I mentioned before, I love chocolate. So having a chocolate care with chocolate icing? How could you go wrong? It was very chocolatey, very moist, very delicious! This cake was definitely one of my favorites.
Marshmallow Treats (100 calories, 2.5g fat):
This one’s pretty straightforward. It’s basically a rice krispy treat. I found this one too chewy for my tastes. It wasn’t bad, mind you. I’m just used to the original Rice Krispy treats.
Overall, I liked the Little Debbie 100 Calories treats. You shouldn’t expect any of them to fill you up if you are hungry, but they are a good way to calm down a craving that would otherwise result in a high calorie/fat binge.
