GIRLS BITE OUT
Tomorrow is National Candy Day, and while eating sugary treats shouldn't be
an everyday thing, it's nice to know what your options are for those times
when you need a fix. So, here ya go!
New HG Picks for a Candy Fix!
Here are some of our latest favorites to satisfy your sweet tooth!
Jelly Bellys Sugar-Free Line Our treat-producin' pals at Jelly Belly Candy
Co. have a whole slew of sugar-free candies that are reduced calorie and fat-
free, too! There are Jelly Belly Beans (duh) in Assorted Flavors & Sour (35
pieces = 80 cal), Fruit Slices (8 pieces = 60 cal), Spice Drops and Fruit
Drops (31 pieces = 90 cal), Gummi Bears (25 pieces = 70 cal), Cola Bottles
(8 pieces = 70 cal), and Inchworms (11 pieces = 70 cal). Plus, these guilt-
free gummies contain fiber, making a serving of each just 1 Point! (Heads
Up! These do contain sugar alcohols, so if you are sensitive to those, be
Creme Savers Sugar Free Hard Candy These super-creamy candies come
in Chocolate & Caramel Creme and Strawberries & Creme. You can enjoy 5
of these swirly suckers for only 45 calories and 1.5g fat. Woohoo!
CocoaVia Chocolate Bars CocoaVias bars are all good, but their 90-
calorie, 5-fat-gram, 2-gram-of-fiber Crispy Chocolate Bar is an HG fave. HG
ALERT! CocoaVias milk chocolate snacks (with the same awesome

prechewed!) 'em, and they ROCK!
Altoids Sours While the word "Altoids" may immediately bring to mind

Brittle Behaving Badly - A 3.5-oz. serving of peanut brittle contains a
whopping 486 calories and 19 grams of fat! Yowsa!
Sugar-Free Silliness Just because a candy is sans-sugar, doesnt mean its
low in calories & fat. Case in point Nestles Sugar Free Pecan Turtles
contain 183 calories and 11 grams of fat in each tiny, 3-piece, 1.2-oz.
Yogurt Myth Dispelled Candy that's coated in yogurt (as opposed to
chocolate) has long been considered a healthier, lower calorie choice. Not
so! An ounce of that coating contains just 4 calories fewer (and not even a
full fat gram less) than an ounce of milk chocolate.
Bite-Size Blunder Research shows youre likely to consume more fat and

and artificial sweeteners = bad.
