We want chocolate. Always. But without breaking the bank (calorie-wise in any way you mean it to be). Caroline Thain spills the Smarties on what doesn’t really count…

We are not saying you want to lose weight, obviously. You might even be looking to increase your diet.

If you are running about after little ones and breastfeeding, for example, you could easily need more. Or if you are keen to shift a few pounds post-baby, you may still satisfy chocolate cravings with these low calorie snacks.

There’s a surprising amount of yummy stuff that has a chocolate theme with a hundred calories in or less. See? They don’t have just a hundred calories – they contain nearly a hundred calories. It works both ways. Phew! Glad we sorted that out then. Awkward.
