Crunchy Sweet Strawberries and Cream snack

Recommended Posts

Ok, so this actually a combination of two different trader joe's items, but together there's a synergy that makes an incredibly delicious treat.

 

Combine their miniature vanilla meringues (100 pieces for 2 points) with their freeze dried strawberries (a scant 2 points for the entire bag).

 

A cup and a half of the mixture is *barely* two points. It's right on the line between 1 and 2. 105 calories/0 fat/3g fiber.

 

It's sweet, crunchy, has good volume for the points, and is absolutely delicious! The only drawback is the price of the freeze-dried fruit, but at least it's cheaper at TJ's than other places.

 

yuuuuuum

I used the nutritionals that you gave above on my computer points calculator and got 1.50 points exactly for the1 1/2 cups. This sounds delicious....is it very sweet?

Yes, it's actually *very* sweet. So sweet that I could only get through about half a serving before I felt sugar overload and didn't want any more! But I've always preferred salty to sweet, and I'm the one who always scrapes icing off cake, so perhaps I'm not the best judge. ;-)
