You can probably find these most places


I would also guess these better than most.

Mounds is dark chocolate plus coconut. Coconut is pretty good for you.

If you can resist eating the whole bar, I would spend some more and get a good bark of dark chocolate like Lindt and just eat one square at a time.

The darkest chocolate you can stomach.

As for traditional candy; pretzel m&m's probably have the fewest calories (150?) per bag, but peanut m&m's have at least some value without a crazy amount of calories.

dark chocolate still has a huge amount of saturated fat due to the cocoa butter content.

in the end that may or may not turn out to be alright, so for now i've totally cut out dark chocolate and just go with cocoa powder in drinks. you can replace the yumminess of the missing fat content with skim milk, soy milk, etc.

dark chocolate-covered almonds are just about the healthiest candy i can think of offhand, but a little hard to find.

If you are going to bother to eat candy you shouldn't really be worrying about health. Frankly I've never cared much for candy, chocolate especially, though I do like chocolate covered peanuts and pretzels because the of salty and sweet goes well.

Not really the question is it? Is this is this better than a Milky Way bar is the question

Nobody is suggesting that his entire diet be peanut m&m's

I contest that the sugar is the issue, not the cocoa butter. The darker the chocolate, the less sugar usually.

AFAIK the cocoa butter content stays in the same area no matter how the sugar / cocoa solids change. if you compare a sugary milk chocolate bar with a 70%+ dark chocolate bar, the sat fat content is sky high in both.

that said, i definitely agree that keeping the darkness up and the sugar down is the way to go.

combining salty and sweet is the best thing ever - especially using chocolate for the sweet.

I definitely think it's the sugar. Saturated fats, when coming from healthy, non-crap sources, are incredibly important for promoting healthy hormone production and, as counterintuitive as media and medical companies have made it out to be, heart health.
