    I'm loving the salt-free sweet potato chips by Terra! Their salt-free sweets & beets are also good.

    I love Bolthouse Farms drinks, especially the Coffee/Protein one.

    I also really like Halo Top Ice Cream a lot. A whole pint is somewhere between 240 and 360 calories, depending on flavor, and each one has 20-24 grams of protein. So I can down an entire pint without feeling guilty about it afterwards!

    My favorite snacks are potato chips, cupcakes, pizza, and steak, but that isn't practical for either my health or my wallet.

    However I'm now in a spot in my life where eating lunch is even harder than it was when I was a teacher. (I have classes straight from 10am to 2pm on Tu and Thu, but I still need sustenance to keep my brain going and so I don't collapse, so I've taken to buying Larabars and SunRype dried fruit bars that I can throw in my backpack and forget until I need them. So far they're tiding me over, but I get cravings for savory things every now and then, and I don't really know what to go for in that case (jerky is too expensive).

    You could try nuts of some type, those are more savory and have enough protein to be filling, instead of quickly-burnt carb bombs.

    My husband loves the Veggie Straws. He loves chips but I won't buy the regular kinds for him. Mean wife. ;)

    100 calorie snack packs: popcorn, pretzels, cookies, nuts, etc.

    I don't feel guilty about eating cookies when they're preportioned in a 100 calorie package!

    Yaaasss!!!! String cheese and the small 50 calorie cheddar bricks.

    Also, edamame. I'm a snacker and this keeps my hands busy. I also love popcorn and these almond/cashew clusters I get at Costco.

    Halo Top, yes! Love the chocolate peanut butter and sea salt caramel. I also like Dannon light and fit greek yogurt, especially the chocolate raspberry flavor.

    I never really got the whole Halo Top thing. I tried it once, and could tell immediately it was "fake" ice cream and way overpriced.

    I do, because I'll typically have 4 of said packages.

    My DH and I are crazy over veggie straws and white cheddar popcorn from Costco, too.

    I was so disappointed in the Halo Top ice cream. We have tried four different favors. We didn't eat more than a few bites of each.

    I checked it out and was turned off by the ingredients...I would rather just eat less real ice cream and not a whole pint of a fake version, personally! You're not supposed to eat the whole pint at one time, anyway o_O

    I love whole wheat crackers with pepper jack cheese--yum!! I have also been trying to eat more fruits and veggies for snacks. Sometimes I buy the apples that are already prepackaged and sliced or have grapes or a banana for a snack.

    I love cheese and crackers too. I've tried to skip the crackers though and have some cheese on sliced apples instead.

    I LOVE cheese!!!!

    Did anyone watch Shark Tank the other day with the dessert hummus? Delighted by Hummus? The Brownie Batter Hummus was rather good. I dipped pretzels in it. They have vanilla bean, chocolate mint and snicker doodle. I haven't tried those flavors yet. It was different. I would say it was like eating cocoa flavored refried beans. :) https://delightedbyhummus.com/
