Cadbury Chocolates Calories and Sugar Guide

Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate barThe war on sugar shows no signs of letting up. And if you love chocolate, it’s not easy keeping your sugar intake down.

It goes without saying, chocolate is a high fat, high sugar product, which unfortunately also means high calorie.

It's this fat and sugar combination which makes chocolate highly addictive. While chocolate generally has similar amounts of calories and sugar per 100g, when it comes to individual bars or packets, there can be quite a variation in calories due to their size.

For example, a Dairy Milk Chocolate bar (45g) that you might buy at the corner shop, contains 240 calories and 6 teaspoons of sugar. But if you bought a 6 pack from the supermarket, these bars contain just 157 calories and 3.8 teaspoons of sugar. That's because the bars in the multi pack are smaller.

Finnebrogue Naked Bacon Nitrite Free Review

Finnebrogue nitrite free back baconOne of my family’s favourite meals is an English Cooked Breakfast which I prepare as an evening meal rather than in the morning. But since there has been so much worrying information regarding the negative health effects caused by nitrates in processed meats, I haven’t been buying bacon as much.

However, I discovered this ‘Naked Bacon’ by Finnebrogue which is completely free from nitrites and artificial additives. And it can be included in weight loss programmes because each rasher of bacon has just 46 calories.

Garbanzo Baked Chickpea Bites Review

As a long time fan of Garbanzo’s chickpea snacks, I was interested to visit their stand at the Allergy & Free From Show at Olympia, London last year. They had a new range on show with lots of free samples for visitors to try out.

Still with chickpeas as the base, these chickpea snacks are called ‘baked chickpea bites’. They’re gluten free, contain Vitamin D and have less than 100 calories per bag.
