If you are one of the very few people who never lets a spoonful of sugar cross your lips, hats off to you. On the other hand, if you are partial to a treat every now and again, here are some the better low calorie store-bought dessert options in terms of total calories that will allow you to enjoy a sweet treat every now and again, without any cause for concern.
An oldie but a goodie – with just over 80 calories per serve, the great thing about mint flavoured treats is that you are less likely to overeat them as the strong flavour helps to satisfy sweet cravings. For those trying to avoid sugar, a single Mint Pattie comes in with almost 3 teaspoons of the white stuff.
With just overall 100 calories, 2 teaspoons of sugar and almost 6g of fat, this tasty little morsel is a much lower fat and calorie option than our standard cake and slice.
Nutritionally a great choice as traditional biscotti will contain a good portion of nuts and can contain as little as 3g of sugar per serve.
You would have eaten your fair share of these at school and thanks to the lower chocolate compared to caramel ratio, these treats contain just 5g of fat per serve but they do have almost 4 teaspoons of 18g of sugars.
Rich in flavour, the great thing about a Lindt ball is that you only really need 1 or 2 for a massive chocolate hit. A single Lindt Ball contains just 75cal, along with 5g of fat and 5g of sugars.
Another relatively low cal childhood treat which offer 80cal per serve and less than 5g of fat – the only issue being that they come in packs of 7!
Mango Weis Bar
If ice-cream is your thing, the original Weis bar contains just 85 calories, literally no fat and 20g of carbs and you can even find mini’s which have just 60 calories per serve, if you can stop at just 1.
Another old school favourite with just 80cal, literally no fat and 4 teaspoons of sugar per serve.
