Off Topic: 100 Calorie Packs are the Devil!

Does this look healthy to you?

Oh the marketing person that came up with this one must be set for life. Working in an office I can tell you - these things are everywhere. They are like Invasion of the Snack-Snatchers. They are a horrible nightmare virus of 100-calorie goodness. People are buying these things like they are going out of style, which they might be.

What's the attraction? Are they healthier than their larger-portioned big brothers and sisters? No. But they come in tiny overpackaged...packages so you don't have the horrifying duty of actually portioning enough Nilla Wafers for yourself.

Chips Ahoy, Oreos (which are nothing like actual Oreos), Jell-O, Teddy Grahams, Hostess Cupcakes (WTF?).

Here's a clue: Just because it comes in a 100-calorie pack does not mean its healthy! There, I said it.

Now I'm just going to have one more pack....
