Poll Results: 100 Calorie Preferences


I found this fascinating. First of all, I voted for the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I know it doesn’t seem like a huge portion, but the caloric density of the peanut butter is really satisfying to me.

But I was really surprised at the huge numbers of Jelly Belly fans. I think my second choice would probably be Gummi Bears, just because they take so long to eat.

The big thing, I think, if you’re going to have an indulgence be aware of how many calories it is, if you’re watching them, and then pick something that will satisfy you. Nothing worse than having a “treat” you don’t like.

(I don’t know who these rice cake eaters are!)

  1. Wow, I voted for PBCs too…  I had no idea people liked Jelly Bellys(ies?) as much as Reese’s.

  2. I actually really love Jelly Bellies. Especially the pear & grapefruit ones.

    Rice cakes are ick…..unless you get really fresh ones. I was at a farmers market in hawaii, and they were selling nori rice cakes which were so good. They were making them right there, which is how fresh they were.

  3. I was one of the weird ones that picked the mentos grin

    I must be addicted to mints to pick that above the reeses

  4. I’m one of the rice cake eaters **is proud** raspberry I find the plain, lightly salted ones so addictive :D If the rice cakes hadn’t of been on the list I would of picked the mini resses cups.  I like to bite the top chocolate part off first and let it melt in my mouth, then eat the yummy peanut butter center, and finally let the bottom part of chocolate melt in my mouth…  smile

  5. I voted for the Jelly Bellies.  They are great for a “diet” sugar binge.  They have a lot of flavor punch per bean.

  6. I vote for Jelly Belly! Nothing can beat a Jelly Belly jelly bean. There are so many flavors to choose from, so it doesn’t matter what kind of sweets you’re in the mood for.
