Have you ever had the munchies and wished for a little something to snack on without blowing your day's calories? A new trend in food marketing is the 100-calorie snack pack. These are a nice option, and all the math is done for you. Rather than bringing home the big bag of chips that offers no stopping once it's opened, you get a fixed number of items pre-portioned into 100-calorie packages, assuming you stop after eating only one package. In some cases, food manufacturers might simply be putting 100 calories' worth of the original product into a smaller package, much like you could do at home using little plastic bags.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Local business owner David Sanders carefully pulls a folded and worn piece of paper out of his shirt pocket and points to a set of numbers: 194 and 142/80. The numbers are results from tests performed at his doctor's office. The first was a measure of the sugar in his bloodstream and the second was his blood pressure. "He told me that, walking out of his office one day, he was afraid I was going to die," said Sanders, who owns Sanders Furniture Refinishing & Upholstering in the former Harbaugh's Hardware building on East Main Street.
