Guilt Free Snacking Marks & Spencer Treats

Marks & Spencer have brought out a range of specially designed tasty treats under a new label called ‘Guilt Free Snacking’. These treats include savoury snacks such as potato chips, and sweet treats like popcorn.

They’re easy to spot as they all have the Guilt free snacking’ white cloud symbol on the front of the packs.

These snacks are helpful for those who want to grab a tasty treat without worrying about the calories.

The calories per pack varies depending on which you choose, but they’re all around the 100 calorie mark.

The guilt free ‘Count on us’ snacking range is described as:

  1. I love the M&S lentil curls! Very different from other low fat crisps on the market, and fairly high in protein too which i think is a bonus.

  2. I love them too. They are quite spicy and take longer to eat because there are lots of them.

  3. I love the M&S popcorn, and yes it would be very easy to eat way more than one bag! I need to try the White Chocolate and Strawberry Popcorn too.
