20 Potato Crisps and Snacks Under 100 Calories

They’re crisp, crunchy, tasty and everywhere! If you’re after a quick snack, you can be sure there'll be a crisp seller nearby. In fact, according to research, potato crisps are the UK's most popular product in the snack foods market, accounting for just under 50 percent of sales in this sector.

But crisps aren't the healthiest of snacks. Most are fried in oil and coated in salt, ingredients which help them taste great, but also makes them deceptively high in calories. Those feather light packs could set you back 200 calories or more for a single serving.


There's good news though. With many of us looking for healthier or lower calorie snacks, manufacturers are using different cooking methods such as baking or popping to cut down on the fat content. They're also using potato alternatives like cassava or corn. To further reduce calories, many brands produce smaller packs.

If you're concerned about your weight and want to cut the calories in your diet, you don't have to forgo your crisp snacking habit. Just choose the right varieties.

The following list shows 20 potato, cassava and corn based snacks with under 100 calories per pack. By keeping your snacks to 100 calories or less, you should find it easier to keep control of your weight.
