The Three 'Healthiest' Candy Bars for Junk-Food Lovers

Want to enjoy candy without blowing your diet? These healthy candy bars are your best bets

An entire Hershey's Air Delight contains only 200 calories.

For those who are looking to eat healthy but also love candy bars, every trip to the pharmacy or supermarket becomes an exercise in self-control. Just look at those Snickers bars and Kit-Kats, beckoning you with their sweet, sugary charms. Thankfully, we’re living in an era where even if you’re on a diet, there’s something that can satisfy just about any craving without making you spend another two hours at the gym. Here are three of the healthiest candy bars — or at least less unhealthy? — that you can buy.

York Peppermint Patties
With just 140 calories, a York Peppermint Pattie makes for a great sweet treat. They’re also pretty small, and even come in snack sizes in case you’re looking for just a bite.

Hershey’s Air Delight
If you’re looking to enjoy a whole chocolate bar, Hershey’s Air Delight is the way to go. It only contains 200 calories, and thanks to its aeration it’s a lot less dense than a regular chocolate bar.


100 Grand
A full candy bar, loaded with chocolate, caramel, and crispy rice, with only 190 calories? You better believe it.
