It’s hard to find snacks that are low in smart points. As a busy mom, I’m always on the hunt for more low smartpoint ready to eat snacks and foods. After all, holding down three jobs and running the kids back and forth to their gazillion activities takes a toll on this gal’s body and energy level. If I’m going to be successful on the new Weight Watchers SmartPoints™ plan, I’d better plan ahead and have things ready to grab when the snack monster in me comes out. If you’re like me, you need convenience then here are some low smartpoints finds that I’ve been testing out this week.
To get the best deals, I always use discount links when possible. If you have Walmart grocery delivery in your area, then here’s my referral link for a $10 coupon for Walmart. You can also try Amazon through Ebates and get a kick back there. I love saving money on groceries and things that I’m already buying so I thought I’d share that deal with you. Plus, when you click links in this post and on my site, I sometimes get a commission. It’s like your buying me a protein drink with someone else’s money and getting a discount for yourself I love Premier Protein drinks! Thank you!
Werther’s Original = 1-2 Smart Points
I love Werther’s Originals, so when I found these sugar free ones at my local Dollar Tree, I had to give them a try. I didn’t notice much difference in taste between the sugar free ones and the original versions at first. Then, I ate too many and ended up in the bathroom So, if you’re going to have these stick to just a few. Otherwise, you won’t be happy with the results. The chewy caramels are 4 smart points for 6 pieces, but you might want to stick with just 2 pieces for 3 smart points. The mini hard candies are 1 smart points for 5 pieces. I throw these in my purse for when I’m out and about and need a sweet treat.
Mama Chia Granola makes a great ready to eat smart point snack. I personally like to add it to yogurt and fruit for a quick breakfast or afternoon snack. You can also pour almond milk in it for a very tasty breakfast, but of course…I love my protein drink. So this bag of granola will have to be tossed into my desk at work for my afternoon snack fix.
I’m a sucker when it comes to cookies. Frosted animal cookies are my favorite, but their smart points values are way too high. I prefer to have 8 unfrosted Stauffer’s Original Animal Crackers for 2 smart points. Mixed in with bananas and a little sugar free vanilla pudding, and you’ve got yourself low smart points bananna pudding! So yummy!
Weight Watchers Chocolate Snack Bars = 2-4 Smart Points Each
Right now you can get a discount on Weight Watchers snack bars. Use code CHOCOLOVE to get select chocolate products 2 for $12. This is probably a Valendtine’s Day promotion. If you get to $75, then shipping is free. Obviously, you’ll want to purchase the $7.95 items because that’s where the savings come in. You’ll save $1.95 off each box. I don’t think you can combine the Ebates discount on this deal. I’m going to grab a few boxes because they don’t go on sale often.
Weight Watchers Chips = 2 Smart Points
I’ll admit, I’m addicted to crunchy chips and snacks. Weight Watchers makes is super easy to stay on plan with their ready to go snack packs. They’re not cheap! But, if you’re looking for quick easy to grab snacks, then you can’t go wrong. I’ve loved every snack I’ve tried from their line.
Weight Watchers Cafe Creations = 0 Smart Points
A lot of my friends rave about the Weight Watchers Cafe Creations. I wonder if you deprive yourself…if everything low smart points starts to taste fantastic? These are pretty decent for zero smart points. You can add it to your coffee, almond milk or yogurt for variety.
