Wonderful Pistachio 1.5 ounce bags
Wonderful Pistachio 1.5 ounce bags
PointsPlus values per serving: 5

Wonderful Pistachio brand launched a 1.5 ounce bag, packed with 49 pistachios. Although high on the PointsPlus values spectrum for an afternoon snack, these portion-controlled kernels will hold you over for a while, and the pile of empty shells will remind you just how satisfied you are! A 1.5 ounce serving of pistachios has 5 grams of protein, is a good source of heart healthy fats, and has more antioxidants than a cup of green tea!

$13.24 for 24 1.5 oz packs. Available at Sam's Club and at check out counters at select retail locations.
Wholly Guacamole 100-calorie packs
Wholly Guacamole 100-calorie packs
PointsPlus values per serving: 2

Guacamole lovers, you’ll adore these if you don’t already. Wholly Guacamole 100-calorie packs make smart-snacking a no-brainer. Paired with some of our favorite chips (see below) or, for far fewer PointsPlus values, some cut-up veggies (we love the crunch of jicama with our guac), this makes a wonderful afternoon munch.

$1.99 - $2.99 for 3 pack and $3.99 - $4.99 for 6 pack. Available at Kroger, Target, Wal Mart, Publix, and other grocery stores.
Food Should Taste Good To-Go Packs
Food Should Taste Good To-Go Packs
PointsPlus values per serving: 6

The nutty combination of flax, sunflower and sesame seeds is an easy one to overeat, but Food Should Taste Good is one step ahead with their new one-ounce To-Go packs. If you are a committed chip-dipper, pair a pack with a 100-calorie pack of Wholly Guacamole, but save this 8 PointsPlus values combo for a day where you need to be sustained for a long walk home from work or an all-out gym session. (Our tip: Most salsas have 0 PointsPlus values!)

$4.99 per bag. Available at Whole Foods, Stop and Shop, Giant and Shaws.
Breyer’s YoCrunch Fruit Parfait
Breyer’s YoCrunch Fruit Parfait
PointsPlus values per serving: 3

The folks at Breyer’s YoCrunch have created a new fruit parfait. With layers of peaches, low fat vanilla yogurt, and whole grain rolled oat granola, this 3 PointsPlus values snack is more of a sweet treat than a filling find, but it’s definitely worth a try.

Alouette cheeses
Alouette cheeses
PointsPlus values per serving: 1

Alouette soft spreadable cheese had us coming back for seconds — OK, fine, sometimes thirds — so be sure to count your PointsPlus values around these irresistible cracker toppers. Better yet, dip some sliced red peppers into the Sweet & Spicy Pepper Medley. The Sundried Tomato & Basil, Creamy Onion & Shallot and Spinach Artichoke also left our taste buds satisfied and tummies tamed for a few hours before dinner.

$4.99 for 6.5 oz. Available at supermarkets nationwide.
Rock ‘n Roll Gourmet Hippie Chips
Rock ‘n Roll Gourmet Hippie Chips
PointsPlus values per serving: 3

Rock ‘n Roll Gourmet put on quite the show with their new line of 3 PointsPlus value rock star-status snacks. Front row and center were their irresistible and undeniably satisfying potato Hippie Chips baked with intense seasoning like Woodstock Ranch and Memphis Blues BBQ. Other crowd pleasers were the one-ounce bags of Rock & Pop popcorn in sweet, salty and crunchy Kettle Korn, and for those who needed a kick, the (really) spicy Jalapeno Korn.

$24 for 24 1 oz. bags. Available at www.rocknrollgourmet.com.
Wings of Nature nutrition bars
Wings of Nature nutrition bars
PointsPlus values per serving: 5

Wings of Nature nutrition bars are truly a great snack given their divine tastiness The Almond Raisin was a favorite with its perfect balance of nuttiness and sweetness. Eight all-natural ingredients — organic nuts, seeds and dried fruit, blended with organic Agave syrup and organic brown rice syrup sweeteners — yield a bar that is worthy of a 5 PointsPlus values mini-meal indulgence.

$1.79 per bar. Available at Whole Foods and Walgreens.
