Here is yet another barbecue sauce with ketchup as the first ingredient. This does have a nice mild burn, but it really doesn't last very long. Two tablespoons are 50 calories and 11 grams of sugars, with zero fat. In addition to the sugar in the ketchup, the other ingredients contain honey, chili sauce, (which contains sugar and corn syrup), brown sugar, and Worcestershire Sauce (which contains both molasses and more sugar), so I think you get my drift... this is one sweet sauce. So, if you are going to use it to barbecue make sure you brush it on after cooking, otherwise it will burn. What does it taste like? Ketchup with some spices and sugar.

This looks like it's a clever idea - a chicken broth concentrate in a plastic squeeze bottle, but there are a couple of problems. First is attempting to squeeze it into a teaspoon is probably going to result in a mess, the stream of broth is quite powerful. The second is that even though it's reduced sodium and says that it has 44% less sodium than regular chicken broth, it tastes very salty. Two tablespoons have 480 mg of sodium, but only 10 calories.

This is a delicious alternative to an ice cream bar. Just 130 calories and 6 grams of fat, with 10 grams of sugars. The chocolate coating is absolutely delicious and the peanut butter flavor comes through loud and clear and doesn't overwhelm. The only disappointment is that I really can't taste that Greek Yogurt flavor. Contains no artificial sweeteners.

If you like Nestle's Crunch but are looking for a richer chocolate and even more crunch, Chuao is for you. 41% cacao, with popping candy, or what I would call Pop Rocks, corn chips, puffed amaranth and sea salt. The flavor is excellent. No artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives. Half a bar or about one and a half ounces, is 210 calories, 16 grams of sugars, and 14 grams of fat. And surprisingly it's not overly sweet. And you really can’t sense the "popping".

Here's one clever snack! A recipe of apples, sweet potatoes, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves, all pressed together in a chewy and delicious snack. I could see keeping these in a purse or a briefcase and being able to snack on them any time you felt that little pang of hunger. One snack is just 20 calories, 2 grams of sugars and only 5 mg of sodium. No added sugars, nothing artificial, and to make it even better, it delivers 60% of the RDA for vitamin A.
