100 Calorie Packs Are Still A Scam, Cost More For Less Food

You may still enjoy the 100 calorie packs that have become so popular lately, but you should realize you’re being had.

ABC News took a look at the issue, grabbing soundbites from Michael Jacobson from the CSPI as well as collecting rebuttals from the various snack-mongers.

The most important thought to take away? If you’re fine with paying a premium for 100 calorie packs, make sure you don’t eat more than one. ABC News says eating two 100 calorie Hostess cupcake packs means you’ve eaten more calories than if you ate 1 large Hostess cupcake, and paid a lot more for those extra calories.

Buy the big box and some sandwich baggies!
