Just Because a Snack is 100 Calories Doesn't Mean It's Good For You

I REALLY want to like these. I think Nabisco's concept of helping people with portion size is a good one. And 100 calories is an excellent snack goal.
But, taking delicious Oreos, and turning it into smaller crackers, putting them in 6 plastic bags, and charging $3 for it, doesn't work for me.
If you really want Oreos, you could eat 2 of them and you would be below 100 calories. This is a difficult thing to do, but if you bought a bunch and then divided them up - it could happen!
The ingredients for these Oreo Thin Crisps are Flour, Sugar, Oil, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Cocoa, Corn Starch, Baking Soda, Artificial Color, Salt, Powdered Sugar, and Artificial Flavor.
Nabisco uses 3 different forms of sugar on their labels to ensure that the ingredient "Sugar" isn't the FIRST ingredient.
This product is marketed as a "Sensible Solution", 0g Trans Fat, 2g Fat, 0mg Cholesterol. What is it a solution for? I suppose these 100 calorie packs are one solution to replace Oreos.
What Nabisco has created is a low calorie version of junk food. Stay away from these! There are plenty of other packaged snacks that are both healthy and low calorie.
