Fantastic Food Find Friday

The Find: Dark Chocolate Sundrops (in bulk at health food stores)

The Facts: I love chocolate and even more than plain chocolate, I love candy coated chocolate (oh yes…I’m talking about M&Ms). BUT the sad truth: M&Ms are pretty much void of any nutritional content. I found the perfect replacement. Think dark chocolate (full of antioxidants), no artificial coloring, and unrefined cane juice vs. white sugar (this means you have to use less and there are nutrients for your body). A totally tasty treat! You can eat 43 pieces for 180 calories, 8 grams of fat, 2 grams of fiber.

Spice it up! Put a small amount with low fat popcorn and almonds and it’s the perfect treat!

Enjoy (in moderation, of course J)!
