Zinc Milligrams in Candy & Sweets

Sweet Food, Sour Calories
Even a few candies at the marketplace contain zinc benefits. Chocolate rules - semisweet to be specific at almost three milligrams per cup.
But then again - who is going to eat an entire cup of chocolate morsels?
Well....sure, I guess that some of us really could do that - but it wouldn't be sweet for the body.
Sure, we'd be in hog heaven while we are gomming [yes, gomming is a word...] down these dark tidbits - but afterwards we'd be hit with a wild guilt trip. Fact is - it's just not worth the guilt trip at the end of the day, right?
We'd be better off enjoying a single bar of chocolate. It too has some nice zinc benefits - a little over one milligram per bar. Most milk chocolate varieties contain about 200 kcals per bar.
And what's great about the bars is that we can break them in half - enjoy one for snack time and the other later.
Beware of the Haunted Sweet Tooth
My sweet tooth is deeper than the Grand Canyon - no kidding Dick Tracy! I could literally live on sweets, particularly when it comes to iced cinnamon rolls, donuts and certain types of pies.
I really like the pudding based pies - such as coconut cream and banana cream, and yes, even the chocolate silk versions.
Unfortunately, the body prefers a well-rounded daily diet.
Even if we took a multi-vitamin and ate nothing but sweet treats - our body wouldn't bein a good state of health.
