Santa isn't the only one allowed to enjoy the treats of the holiday season. But, if we don't want to end up with a bowl full of jelly for a January belly, we all better watch what we eat, especially when it comes to the sugary sweets. I've gathered up a group of treats that will satiate even the strongest of sweet toothed people but won't tip you over on the scale. Come check out these five holiday bits under 100 calories!
Do you remember a little while back I told you about SOYJOY bars. If you gave them your address, they promised to send you 3 free bars.
As exciting as it was to get free treats in the mail, I'm sorry to say these bars are pretty gross. They look homemade which is cool, but they tasted more like cookies gone bad.
First of all, they smelled kind of funky, like the health food stores my gramma dragged me to as a child. When I opened them, they looked dark and brick-like. When I tried all 3 flavors they sent me - Raisin Almond, Berry, and Apple - all 3 of them tasted pretty much the same - yucky!
They were really dense, dry, and truthfully, it weirded me out that "frozen eggs" was listed in the ingredients. Butter was also listed, but I sure didn't taste it.
Looking at the label, they do have 240mg of potassium, 3g of fiber, 4% of your daily iron intake, and 4g of protein from the soy. That's impressive for a tiny 130 calorie bar.
Tell Me: Have any of you ever tried a SOYJOY bar? Did you send away for your free bars? What did you think?
If you love chocolate and some crunch you should try snacking on some O'Coco's chocolate crisps. Here's a few details about these tasty crisps:
- They are baked and not fried.
- They contain zero Trans Fats (maybe they will be on sale at Universal Studios).
- They are packed in a no cheat 90 calorie bag, 6 bags per carton.
- They even have 1 gram of fiber.
- They are organic!!!
- They are tasty and satisfying
You can get them in one of three flavors: chocolate, chocolate - cinnamon, or chocolate - mocha. If you can't decide, try the variety pack with 12 bags of each flavor.
