Here are some of the nutritional info on some popular candy bars. Just reading this article made me want to go buy a candy bar! The article actually critiques the candy, but I was more interested in the calories and fat grams, etc. Check out the link at the end for the article. Nestle Crunch Crisp: 240 calories, 13 grams fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 65 mg sodium, 32 grams carbs Hershey's Whatchamacallit: 220 calories, 11 grams fat, less than 5 mg cholesterol, 210 mg sodium, 28 grams carbs Hershey's Take 5: 210 calories, 11 grams fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 180 mg sodium, 25 grams carbs Reese's Crispy Crunchy Bar: 260 calories, 15 grams fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 115 mg sodium, 28 grams carbs Hershey's Milk Chocolate filled with Creamy Peanut Butter (king size) 370 calories, 23 grams fat, 10 mg cholesterol, 140 mg sodium, 35 grams carbs Milky Way Midnight Dark: 230 calories, 8 grams fat, 5 mg cholesterol, 75 mg sodium, 36 grams carbs Twix PB: 280 calories, 17 grams fat, 15 mg cholesterol, 140 mg sodium, 28 grams carbs Snickers Dark: 250 calories, 13 grams fat, 5 mg cholesterol, 125 mg sodium, 30 grams carbs Reese's Nutrageous: 260 calories, 15 grams fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 95 mg sodium, 26 grams carbs Choxie Dark Chocolate Coconut Truffle Bar: 200 calories, 14 grams fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 45 mg sodium, 18 grams carbs http://www.wfsb.com/health/15214317/detail.html?treets=hart&tid=2659066709813&tml=hart_mostpopular&tmi=hart_mostpopular_1_02000402112008&ts=H

Snickers Dark is great! I also like dark chocolate M&Ms, but I haven't tried the dark chocolate peanut M&Ms, though I mean to very soon.

I love chocolates. Well who doesn't, but in my case, I am also concerned about my health as I am not that young anymore. Since chocolates contain lots of sugar and fats, I usually try not to eat them often. Many of these candy bars you've highlighted are available in our supermarkets, and it is always very tempting to want to grab some of these everytime I go by the section that sells these choc bars. But I've been able to maintain my discipline not to buy them, except once in a while. Part of this discipline actually is attributable to my wife, because much of the time, she will question me if grab some and put them in the supermarket trolley.

I think, it's really important, that for the sake of mylot and research that we get one of each of these (when I have $ again) and try each one for a taste test comparison. Then we can report back. What do you think?

Okay actually I like something sweet, more sugar include the chocolate. Maybe I never pay attention to the compotition of the sugar or candy bar, but I like sweet biscuits, sweet food in my country, and of course the chocolate. But I'm not always eat it everyday. So I can't say that i'm chocoholic or not. But one thing my teeth is broken cause I like them most.

Well there is no chocolates there that are low in calories or have no fatso that is disappointing,why can't we have chocolates that are good for us and not fattening.

I am one of the biggest chocoholics there is ever. I love chocolate so much that I can't have just one chocolate bar, I have to have two or three. So your saying I am taking in more calories just eating chocolate bars, than I am allowed for the whole day, never mind the good food I eat. Wow!! I knew this already, I am just joking with you. I am about 20 lbs. overweight but by the amount of chocolate and calories I eat I should be 200 lbs. overweight. lol

I love chocolate, especially dark chocolate, but I had to cut way back because it aggravates a health problem that I have. I don't really have much of a weight problem anymore, so it's not because of the calories or fat, though I like to limit the sugar that I eat. I've tried carob, but it just doesn't seem the same because it tastes a bit sweeter and I like my chocolate semi-sweet or barely sweet at all.
