9 Salty Snacks Under 100 Calories

  • Pop Secret Light Butter Premium Microwave Popcorn

    The Lowdown: (5 cups) 100 calories, 4g fat, 242mg sodium

    It's got more flavor than the 94 percent fat-free kind, and you can still scarf down nearly half of a 12-cup bag! You'll also get 3 grams of heart-healthy fiber.

  • Jason Donnelly

    Pumpkin Seeds in Shell, Dry-Roasted with a Dash of Table Salt

    The Lowdown: (1/4 cup) 71 calories, 3g fat, 247 mg sodium
    Save some after carving out your jack-o'-lantern or just buy 'em from the store — either way, they're packed with protein, iron, and magnesium, which aids calcium absorption.

  • Guiltless Gourmet Spicy Black Bean Tortilla Chips

    The Lowdown: (13, with 2 tablespoons salsa) 88 calories, 1.3g fat, 342mg sodium

    Bored with regular baked tortilla chips? Scoop your salsa (full of cancer-fighting lycopene) with something a little more flavorful.

  • Ted Morrison


    The Lowdown: (1/2 cup in shell with a dash of coarse salt) 90 calories, 4g fat, 168mg sodium

    Whole green soybeans eaten out of the pod are a great source of cholesterol-lowering soy protein. A half-cup serving provides 3 grams of fiber and 7 1/2 grams of protein, plus a little calcium, iron, and vitamin C.

  • Reduced-Fat Triscuits

    The Lowdown: (6) 98 calories, 2g fat, 135mg sodium

    These whole-grain crackers offer a bonus 3 grams of fiber to keep you feeling full until dinner. (And you'll never detect the difference between the regular and reduced-fat versions.)

  • McCain 5-Minute Fries

    The Lowdown: (19, with 1 tablespoon ketchup) 99 calories, 3g fat, 310mg sodium

    Trans fat-free and made-to-order in your oven, these beat droopy fast-food fries any day.

  • Pringles 100 Calorie Pack Potato Crisps

    The Lowdown: (1 package) 100 calories, 6g fat, 110mg sodium

    Everyone knows: Once you pop, you can't stop. So grab a proportioned 100-calorie container instead of the standard, full-size tube for built-in binge prevention.

  • Snyder's of Hanover Sourdough Hard Pretzels

    The Lowdown: (1 ounce) 100 calories, 0g fat, 240mg sodium

    Okay, so they don't count toward your daily whole-grain servings, but they're naturally fat-free and they'll satisfy even the worst case of stress-induced munchies.

  • Glenny's Soy Crisps, Salt and Pepper Flavor

    The Lowdown: (about 1/2 bag) 70 calories, 1g fat, 190mg sodium
    Anytime we can eat a half a bag of something without guilt, we're happy. When we also get 20 percent of the 25 grams of soy protein recommended per day to lower cholesterol, we're ecstatic. Try Cheddar, Barbecue, and even Fancy Fudge flavors as well.
