7 Not-So-Healthy Snacks continued...

3. Mega-Butter or "Movie Theatre" Microwave Popcorn

This is one of the few products that still contain trans fat. Just 3 tablespoons of unpopped popcorn (which ends up being about 3.5 cups popped) contains 4 to 5 grams of trans fat. It's easy to end up eating twice that amount, which can be 8 to 10 grams of trans fat and 24 grams of total fat.

  • Pop-Secret Extra Butter, 3T unpopped: 180 calories, 13 g total fat, 3.5 g saturated fat, 6 g trans fat, 360 mg sodium
  • Jolly Time Blast O Butter, 2T unpopped: 160 calories, 12 g total fat, 3 g saturated fat, 4 g trans fat, 330 mg sodium
  • Orville Redenbacher’s Butter, 2 T unpopped: 170 calories, 12 g fat, 6 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 380 mg sodium

4. Regular Chips and Cheetos

Although the serving size listed on the package is 1 ounce, most of us snack on twice this amount. So that's what I'm using as the portion size.

  • Cheetos Puffs, 2 ounces: 300 calories, 20 g total fat, 3 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 600 mg sodium
  • Ruffles Cheddar & Sour Cream, 2 ounces: 320 calories, 20 g total fat, 3 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 460 mg sodium
  • Cheetos Flamin Hot Crunchy, 2 ounces: 320 calories, 22 g total fat, 3 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 500 mg sodium
  • Barbara’s Baked Cheese Puffs, 2 ounces: 300 calories, 20 g fat, 3 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 320 mg sodium
  • Lay’s Classic Potato Chips, 2 ounces: 320 calories, 20 g fat, 3 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 340 mg sodium
  • Kettle Potato Chips, Sea Salt, 2 ounces: 300 calories, 18 g fat, 2 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 230 mg sodium
  • Doritos Nacho Cheese Chips, 2 ounces: 320 calories, 16 g fat, 2 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 420 mg sodium

5. Packaged Frozen Snacks

They sure seem convenient, but the calorie and saturated fat cost is high. You'd be hard-pressed to find packaged frozen products that are low in sodium and made with whole grains and smart fats. In this product category, it's buyer beware!

  • Jimmy Dean Biscuit Bacon, Egg, & Cheese, 1 sandwich: 330 calories, 19 g total fat, 7 g saturated fat, 2.5 g trans fat, 940 mg sodium
  • Hot Pockets – Pizzeria Pepperoni Pizza, 1 piece: 340 calories, 17 g total fat, 8 g saturated fat,< 0.5 g trans fat, 740 mg sodium
  • Ore-Ida Easy Fries Golden Crinkles, 12 pieces: 120 calories, 4.5 g total fat, 1 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 290 mg sodium
  • Toaster Strudel, Strawberry, 2 pastries: 340 calories, 14 g total fat, 6 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 340 mg sodium
  • T.G.I. Friday’s Loaded Potato Skins (1/2 order): 1280 calories, 83 g total fat, 38 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 1300 mg sodium
  • DiGiorno Crispy Flatbread Pizza Pepperoni and Fire-Roasted Bell Peppers (1 serving or 1/3 of a pizza): 340 calories, 20 g fat, 9 g saturated fat, 1 g trans fat, 920 mg sodium
  • White Castle Microwaveable Cheeseburgers (2 mini burgers): 310 calories, 17 g fat, 8 g saturated fat, 1 g trans fat, 600 mg sodium
