Either Fat or Sugar Can Spike Calorie Values of Foods

Keep in mind that the Weight Gain Twins are Fat & Sugar - and they generally love one another; at times - they love one another to death.

While high in caloric values, sugar, molasses, honey and candy selections don't get the spike from fat - rather from sugar.

Notice in our data chart below that the fudge is the only candy listed which contains fat grams. Sugar is yes, totally fat free which tells us to pay caution to foods containing such.

Candy Bars Can Make Reasonable Treats When Dieting

Commercially sold candy bars are quite rich in fat grams. A 2 ounce Snicker's candy bar contains a tab over 13 fat grams.

One Hershey's Almond Joy candy bar - the snack size contains 5.12 fat grams.

One KING SIZE Milky Way bar contains almost 18 total grams - which is why we should never toy with the king.

Otherwise, the reasonable Fun Size contains less than 3 fat grams - which should fit nicely into most healthy weight loss plans. Let's take a look at the full nutritional values of the Milky Way candy bar, then we'll examine other candies and their fat content.
