While those calorie-controlled snack bags can be good for your waistline, they aren’t so good for your wallet. A pre-packaged 100-calorie pack of dry roasted almonds (bought in a multi-pack set) is roughly 61 cents, but a DIY 100-calorie pack is about 37 cents. Pretzels drop from 43 cents for prepacked to 18 cents for DIY, and cookies from 66 cents to 40 cents. That’s an average savings of 25 cents per pack, which if you eat one a day, can add up to a savings of nearly $100 a year.Here are some healthy, calorie-controlled snacks you can make to keep on a diet (or put in the kids’ lunch boxes). Try these: Fruit: 1 medium apple, 1 cup blueberries, 2 medium kiwi, 2 cups watermelon. Crunchy: 15 almonds, 30 pistachios, 11 wheat crackers, 5 saltine crackers, 3 cups plain or lightly salted popcorn. Sweet: 14 gummy bears, 3 red licorice sticks, 4 chocolate kisses, 2 mini peppermint patties. For more ideas, visit our sister site, Living on the Cheap.
