Valentine's Day may be about love. But many of us think about candy first. How can we get through Valentine's Day without going overboard on sugar and calories? Here are some examples of 100-calorie portions of popular chocolates and other Valentine's Day treats.
1 box of Conversation Hearts
They are fat-free and fun, and you get to eat the whole box! They have 19 grams of sugar, though.

Choose any two of Special Dark, Milk Chocolate, Krackel, or Goodbar!
1 Kinder Egg
It has 10 grams of sugar and 6 grams of fat, but it is cute!

Get antioxidants with dark chocolate-coated truffles, and choose one with nuts or peanuts for some healthy fat.
1/2 Reese's Peanut Butter Heart
This may be a good one for sharing with your sweetheart!
3 Dove chocolate hearts
Choose dark chocolate for extra antioxidants compared to milk chocolate.
2 chocolate-covered strawberries
