I am a 100 calorie snack purchaser because I am terrible at eyeballing portions so the prepackaged portion helps me a lot and I am usually able to stick to just one. Sometimes I do eat more

I do not have a problem with snack packs and never did. I buy them in flavored popcorn,natural almonds, natural walnuts,diet low calorie snack bars and treats. I can take them with me when I am out for a while.I allow them and put them in my diet plan and allow no more then one 100 calorie unhealthy snack daily. It might be a snack pack or 100 calorie gourmet ice cream or 100 calories of chocolate. Some days it is a 100 calorie healthy snack pack. I am not on a diet but a lifetime eating plan I can live with. I have lost 40 pounds doing this. I do not go over my calorie limit with this.

Its hard to talk myself into it but when I go big in portion control we ALL eat better. My 1/4 cup peanuts have really taught me what a serving really is. I love knowing exactly what I can have.

It depends on what you're buying in a snack pack and how you're using it. I have a box of 100 calorie snack packs of almonds. Just plain almonds, no chemicals or junk. I only take one for when I'm going to be on the go, so the rest of the box is unavailable to me.

My snacks are not exactly portion controlled packs - but kind of better. The small apples are p10 (20 cents USD), and 55 calories. My mixed nuts are a 1 oz bag, at p6 (12 cents USD), and 150 calories. That covers my sweet and salty snack needs.

They are just full of junk and chemicals so I don't eat them. But I can see for people who are working on portion control that they may be helpful. I'm trying to lose my sweet tooth so those types of foods just keep me addicted so I stay away. I would rather take the time and prepare healthier snacks than spend the money on that stuff.

Great article. But I don't buy them. I make my own.

I purchased them only twice in the past and I did eat several packs at one time. I don't plan to purchase more.

I will eat a packet maybe every other day. They do fill me up for close to 3 hours, which is fine. Very very rarely will I eat 2 in a day, spaced out. But right now I have 2 boxes still more than half full. They are good and it helps I don't need the chocolate ones. Limits my choices on which to choose.
