    McVities Mini Ginger Bread Men - 115kcal per 25g bag and it feels like you get loads in there!
    I started on the baby mini ginger bread men (I can't remember the brand) which are closer to 100 kcal for the little bag but the McVities are so much more indulgent and satisfying.
    Fav Comfort Dinner is a bowl of pasta (I usually have 40g dry weight) boiled in chicken stock, leave a bit behind when you drain, stir in vast quantities of mushroom, courgette and spinach (sometimes aubergine, peppers and/or baby plum tomatoes) and then stir through some quark (stir some of the stock into the quark before adding the quark back in to the pasta to stop it seperating).
    Quark as a creamy sauce makes so many meals into comfort food for me!
