Hungry Girl Goes... In Search of "2 for 1" Snacks (PointsPlus™ Bargain Combos!)

I love getting a good deal — especially one I can eat! These snacks are a total BOGO calorie bargain. Pair stuff that has a PointsPlus value of 0 with other sensible treats, and then chew, people!

Apple + Mini Babybel Light
Fruit and cheese is a classic combo, made even more classic with light cheese and 0 PointsPlus™ value fruit! Either slice your apple or bite right in, and enjoy some cheese on the side. Perfection!

A medium apple has about 95 calories, 0.5g fat, 25g carbs, 4.25g fiber, 0.5g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 0.

One piece of Mini Babybel Light cheese has 50 calories, 3g fat, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 6g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 1.

Banana + Triple Chocolate Chunk VitaTop
This is great as a mid-day pick-me-up or a tasty light breakfast. I just love the way bananas taste with those chocolatey muffin tops. Not only will your taste buds do a happy dance, but also you'll be full for a long time.

A medium banana has about 105 calories, 0.5g fat, 27g carbs, 3g fiber, 1g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 0.

One VitaTop has 100 calories, 1.5g fat, 26g carbs, 9g fiber, 4g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 3.

Dill Pickle Spears + 98% Fat-Free Lean Turkey Slices
Protein rocks. I love wrapping slices of turkey around pickles and chomping in — it's like a sandwich without the bread, mayo, and other stuff you may not need. Chew this duo any time of day; it's always time for protein!

Two pickle spears have about 10 calories, 0g fat, 2g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 0.5g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 0.

A 3-oz. serving of turkey slices has about 80 calories, 1g fat, 2g carbs, 0g fiber, 15g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 2.

Grapes + Yoplait Light Strawberry Yogurt
Want a quickie fondue-style snack? Dunk your grapes into the yogurt before you pop 'em in your mouth, instead of eating 'em plain and spooning the yogurt... not that there's anything wrong with that! This way is just a little more fun.

A cup of grapes has about 104 calories, 0.5g fat, 27g carbs, 1.5g fiber, 1g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 0.

A 6-oz. serving of yogurt has 100 calories, 0g fat, 19g carbs, 0g fiber, 5g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 3.

Cucumber Slices + Athenos Original Hummus
Crackers topped with hummus? Good, but the calories from each could add up faster than you like. Spread the beany stuff on slices of cucumber instead, and it'll go a LOT further. This makes a pretty good lunch accompaniment as well as an anytime snacker. Yummy!

A 1/2-cup serving of cucumber slices has about 8 calories, 0g fat, 2g carbs, 0.25g fiber, 0.25g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 0.

A 2 Tbsp. serving of hummus has 50 calories, 3g fat, 5g carbs, 1g fiber, 1g protein and a PointsPlus value of 1.
