    What are the healthiest chocolate bars for your diet and what are the worst? Chocoholics, we’ve got good news as low calorie chocolate DOES exist, you just need to know where to look within our little list of chocolate bars…

    We Brits reportedly enjoy on average 187 of our favourite chocolate bars every year, so there’s no denying that chocolate is a massive part of our lives. Whether it’s a nutty Snickers, an indulgent Mars or a deliciously minty Aero, we all have our favourite chocolate bars – but do you ever stop to check the fat and calories in your usual chocolate bar choice?

    Not many people do, especially as more of us are likely to weigh up the best and worst takeaways and whole meals for instance, rather than just a small snack.

    Picking the healthiest (or just a low calorie) chocolate bar may seem impossible, which is why we’ve rounded up the best and worst chocolate bars for your diet, and included all of your chocolate favourites. So next time you’re looking for a low-calorie chocolate bar, you know which to reach for!
