Last night I had a craving... CHOCOLATE! Sometimes nothing else will do the trick.
Needing to feed my obsession, I stopped by the local convenience store to check out the selection of candy bars.
Because I'm me, I found myself scanning the calorie count on each bar. Sometimes that's enough to convince my brain that the obsession can wait another day.
Last night was not a night.
I did, however, make a (semi-)decent choice after reviewing some candy bar labels and learned that a Mr. Goodbar, which was my first choice, has 250 calories, while a Hershey's Milk Chocolate with Almonds has 380. Both seemed like more empty calories that I wanted to ingest.
But honestly, are there any empty calories in a chocolate bar?
Maybe a Kit-Kat bar? Hmmm, 200 calories and I could try to eat just one of the four pieces inside the wrapper.
There they are! An old-time favorite: Mallo Cups! Just 200 calories in a pack and, yes, I did save one for another day.
You can have those 100 calorie packs of rice cakes for your diet-conscious snack, I'll stick with the Mallo Cups.
For your future reference, a Hershey 5th Avenue Bar has 280 calories, while the York Peppermint Patty has just 140.
