Calories in Chocolate


There are plenty of calories in dark chocolate, just as there are in other forms of chocolate. No chocolate can really be considered low calorie, but it is possible to find lower calorie formulations such as lower calorie packaging (smaller sizes). We all must recognize that dark chocolate is high calorie, so we must eat it in moderation.

So how do the calories in dark chocolate actually compare with the calories in milk chocolate or white chocolate? Since there are so many manufacturers, producing so many different chocolate products, it's just not possible to assign a calorie value to dark, milk, and white chocolate.

Chocolate is high on many peoples most loved food list, yet chocolate can lead to one being overweight. You need to be aware of the total calories and fat content of chocolate.
A regular block of chocolate contains almost an entire days calorie allowance and frighteningly, almost 4 times the daily fat allowance.
If you are watching your waist line, chocolate is great when eaten in moderation.

Please note: 
  • Chocolate bars are too various to list each individual bar. The average calories shown in the table covers varieties such as Snickers, Picnic, Mars Bar, Time Out, Milky Bar, Kit Kat and packs of Beanies or Smarties.
  • It is not how many calories does chocolate contain that is usually the problem. It is how many pieces of chocolate that one consumes in a sitting.
  • Chocolate is actually good for you and contains lots of good minerals and vitamins. It is said that one piece of dark chocolate and a glass of red wine is good medicine. Just remember to count those calories when you take your medicine.
  • Be wise. Eat chocolate in small amounts. Spoil yourself and have just one piece each night. You will be both happier and healthier.
