100 Calorie Snacks?

Curious what your favorite 100 calorie snacks are. I am stuck on apples, pears and reeses snacksters. Need some good ideas! Any weight watcher point values would be appreciated as well.

Individual cups of soy yoghurt. They come in about ten flavors, are organic, taste great, very nutritious. Just what I need. Obviously fruit is great, just trying to add something not yet mentioned.

More 100 calorie snacks

Kraft makes cracker cut slices of cheese. 2 slices are 50 calories and I have them with a few crackers or with a mini-bagel (whole wheat)

Light and fit yogurt is 50 calories and is good with a small fruit like an orange or 1/2 banana or raisins

Individual serving size cottage cheese

I chop up an apple, sprinkle with splenda and cinnamon and put a small amount of diet coke over it and put it in the microwave for 3 minutes. If I have extra calories I add some raisins to it (brings it to over 100 though). I love baked apple and I have the rest of the diet coke for a snack.

1/2 whole wheat pita bread toasted with small amount of hummus spead on it is good too.

1/2 cup of SF white chocolate pudding (made with skim milk) and 3/4 cup of mixed berries (love Trader Joe's frozen berry blend of blackberries, blueberries and rasberries) makes a very satisfying and filling snack for just over 100 calories.

For under 100 you can have some low-fat string cheese which is a great source of both dairy and protein. A prepackaged cup of applesauce. Slice up some veggies and put them in a baggie. I love cucumber slices and baby carrots.

I love that middle eastern red pepper dip (can get it with eggplant, too) - you can find it at Trader Joes and other places. It tastes really rich and has very few calories. That on a coupla peeled carrots... mmmm.

I try to stick to 'whole' snacks. I feel the highly processed ones don't fill me up

I get hungry again easily

Hummus and carrots are great, but if I yearn for chps then stacey's naked pita chips are great with hummus, you just can't have a lot of them, but boy is it filling.

Cocovia chocolate almond blueberry bars are fabulous - 100 cal, really deep wonderful chocolate taste, and they are good for you

I think the important thing to remember is that you can get a lot more bang for your 100-calorie buck if you stay away from the sugar. It not only makes you crave even more sugar, it leaves you feeling drained once you come down from the high--and most of the time, sugary snacks don't fill you up. I found the following 20 snacks on webmd.com. By the way, I'm looking for more people to join my team; you can find it under "Stop Making Excuses".

Do you like cucumber?

Because my mom and dad used to make this awesome salad. I love it, its super-fulling and low-cal. Check it out:

Peel a whole cucumber, get two limes, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper.

Slice the cucumber, squeeze the limes in, a lil salt, a lil pepper and the red pepper make a yummy snack. To make it even yummier you can add two teaspoons of EVOO. Tastes great w/o it, though.

Enjoy and good luck!

Light yogurt - yummy and nutritious. I get the Ralph's generic brand..they're about 100 calories each and somehow have less sugar than your usual nonfat plain yogurt, go figure.
