Some of them suprised me. If we had a choice to eat just one, what would you pick? I guess I would pick the French bread.

I think we're talking here about what you would choose for a snack.
I'd pick the saltines...that's my usual snack, and that's about how many I usually eat. Zesta has a new wheat one that's extra good.

What does 200 calories look like? Let's see. I can find some of them at the upper part of my thigh. A few more on my middle. Omigosh! There are even more on my hips. Holy cow! They're everywhere!!!!!

I can't keep them in the mayo jar or the saucepot or the..... Oh, well. They are here and they are my friends. Please pass the M&Ms.

I would pick the kiwi. It's an interesting site that you picked though, because it is meant to be towards women/girls/chicks. Why not men as well?

Nothing looked like a "snack", looked more like a refrigerator raid! Are you dieting Constance?

That is surprising, and useful, thanks Cinstance. Sometimes looking at something like that really helps. I want mini peppers, I don't think I've seen them but I bet they are lovely if they are mini sweet peppers!

I didn't pick the site, Amber...I found it with "Stumble Upon".

StirBlue, I am not dieting, although I do try to watch what I eat.

That's what I thought, YT. Realistically speaking, how many of us ever actually weigh our food?

Not me. Don't think I've ever weighed food. The closest I come to portion control is "can I lift it?"
