Five 100-Calorie Snacks Found in Great Kids Snacks Box– Have You Tried Them?

Five Snacks that I Discovered, Thanks to Great Kids Healthy Snacks

When you’re looking for a quick snack, 100-calorie packs make it easy to get an energy boost, satisfy hunger pangs, tide you over until the next meal, or simply provide on-the-go satisfaction when your appetite starts to tap you on the shoulder. I receive monthly shipments from Great Kids Snacks, and today I’d like to focus on the following 100-calorie snacks (with the exception of one 120-calorie snack) that I got to try for the first time:

Popchips Ridges Cheddar & Sour Cream

Popchips Ridges Cheddar & Sour Cream

Highlights: No added preservatives. No artificial flavors. No synthetic colors. Cholesterol-free.

I’ve eaten plenty of Popchips in my day, but haven’t tried out the ridged version of these popped chip snacks. Marketed as ‘never fried. always real,’ Popchips Potato Ridges are primarily made from dried potato, and possess a texture that is ridged and with a somewhat bubbly feel to it. The chips have a nice crunch to them, and are quite flavorful. I really like them. One nearly 1-ounce bag of Popchips (about 17 chips) equals 100 calories and offers 2 grams of protein.

Emmy's Dark Cacao Organic Coconut Treat

Emmy’s Dark Cacao Organic Coconut Treat

Highlights: USDA Organic. Gluten free. Grain-free. Raw. Vegan. Non-GMO.

The primary ingredient in this sweet-snacky treat is organic coconut, and I must say, this overall snack is coconut-heavy. It also contains almond flour, which is one of my favorite ingredients in the gluten-free world. The coconut bite tastes like a couple of gluten-free chocolate truffles that I’ve had before, only Emmy’s version is drier. This 100-calorie sweet treat would definitely satisfy if you’re craving chocolate…and you live a gluten-free lifestyle. If you are not a gluten free eater, but love coconut, you will enjoy this.

Side note for locals: From reading the package, I just learned that Emmy’s Organics is a company based in Ithaca, NY, which is only a little over an hour away from Syracuse, NY.

Emerald 100 Calorie Pack of Dill Pickle Cashews

Emerald 100-Calorie Pack Dill Pickle Cashews

Highlights: Quick snack. Gluten free.

If you like pickles, then the dill-flavored cashews from Emerald will definitely put a smile on your face. The cashews are dusted with a seasoning comprised of garlic powder, salt, vinegar, onion powder, parsley, and natural flavor – amongst other ingredients. The small packet included in my Great Kids Snacks subscription provides an ideal on-the-go snack that offers 3 grams of protein, a little fiber, and a bit of iron.

Enlightened Roasted Broad Beans – Garlic & Onion

Enlightened Roasted Broad Beans – Garlic & Onion

Highlights: Low fat. Non-GMO. Certified vegan. Fiber-rich. Protein.

The Enlightened snack brand provides a low fat, gluten-free snack option that contains only four additional ingredients other than the roasted broad beans (fava beans) listed on the package – garlic, onion, sea salt, and sunflower oil. Who knew roasted broad beans tasted so good? This pop-in-your-mouth snack is kind of fun to eat. And, I am in love with the texture…similar to eating a nut, in my opinion, where you still get a crunch without ‘breaking your teeth.’

One 1-ounce serving equals 100 calories, and provides 3 grams of fiber (12% of your recommended daily value – RDV) and 7 grams of protein (14% RDV).

I will definitely purchase this snack on my own, which also comes in the following flavors:

  • Sriracha
  • Sea Salt
  • Wasabi
  • Mesquite BBQ

I would LOVE to get a hold of the wasabi flavor, followed by the sriracha.

Saffron Road Chickbean Crisps – Sea Salt

Saffron Road Chickbean Crisps – Sea Salt

Highlights: No saturated fat. Certified gluten free. Certified halal. Non-GMO.

Made from milled chickpeas baked with a visible mix of lentil, pea and sweet potato bits, the initial taste profile of these chickpea crisps (in my opinion) is a light and airy ‘vegetable’ flavor. The crisps provide a nice level of saltiness.

The more you eat, the better the taste gets.

Saffron Road Chickbean Crisps Goes Good with Dip In Hummus

After a few chips, I took a cue from the packaging visual and decided to whip out the Dip In Classic Hummus that I received in my last delivery of Great Kids Snacks.

What a delicious combination!

Not exactly 100 calories (but close enough), one 1-ounce serving of 15 chickpea crisps equals 120 calories, and provides 4 grams of plant-based protein per serving and 2 grams of fiber.

Where Did I Discover these Snacks?

    Not your “normal” snack food for sure but what a great conversation starter!

    PopChips are awesome! I eat them all the time. I Love all the flavors they have and my kids do, too!
