I'm a peanut butter junkie and I'm trying to eat lower-calorie snacks. I found the Reese's Snacksters in the midst of all the new 100 calorie pack snacks. The packs even contain Reese's pieces. I couldn't pass it up.
The snack packs come in a 5.18 ounce box. There are 7 bags per box. Since there doesn't appear to be a picture in the corner, I'll tell you that the signature Reese's symbol is front and center of the box, with pictures of the package contents at the bottom. The individual packs are .74 ounces each. I think I got this box for $2.50 at Wal-Mart. They can be found for a little more at the grocery store.

For 100 calories, these packages are rather small. The package contains cereal puffs, peanut butter chips, cereal squares, and Reese's pieces. I can tell you that the Reese's pieces are few and far between. So are the peanut butter chips. The package is loaded mostly with the cereal puffs and squares. The puffs and squares are peanut buttery, but not nearly as good as the candy. I think they're primarily there to take up space. They taste about the same. I guess that's why they add the candy pieces to make it a little sweeter.
The packages are tasty, but small. For 100 calories, I think I'd prefer to eat half a bag of Reese's pieces. While I enjoy the peanut butter, the snack is not very filling and makes me want another snack. If you want a more nutritious snack, you could just eat plain cereal. I probably won't buy another box of these packages.
