Best and worst chocolate bars for your diet

Whilst reaching for a chocolate bar might not be as healthy as opting for a piece of fruit, when we fancy a treat there are still some healthy chocolate bar choices we could be making. But which chocolate bar is the healthiest?

Chocoholics, rejoice – low calorie chocolate DOES exist, you just need to know where to look…

We Brits spend a massive £3.5billion on our favourite chocolate bars every year, so there’s no denying that chocolate is a massive part of our lives. Whether it’s a nutty Snickers, an indulgent Mars or a deliciously minty Aero, we all have our favourite chocolate bars – but do you ever stop to check the fat and calories in your usual chocolate bar choice?

Picking the healthiest (or just a low calorie) chocolate bar may seem impossible, which is why we’ve rounded up the best and worst chocolate bars for your diet, and included all of your chocolate favourites. So next time you’re looking for a low-calorie chocolate bar, you know which to reach for!

Whilst picking up a standard size chocolate bar at lunch or as an evening snack might not be as healthy as opting for a piece of fruit, when we fancy a treat there are still some healthy choices we could be making. Especially when you consider that the difference in calories between our worst chocolate bar and our best chocolate bar is a staggering 151 calories – that’s the same as a slimline ham sandwich! You could almost have a bag of Maltesers and the healthiest chocolate bar combined before hitting that calorie total, and let’s be honest with ourselves here – who on earth would say no to more chocolate?

We’ve rated some of the nation’s favourite chocolatey treats from low calorie chocolate to high, plus counted them down in terms of fat and other factors that contribute to the nutritional information, ordering them from the worst to the best. Which one will come out on top?
