On a diet? East Special K? Well, Special K Chocolate Delight has more calories than Cocoa Puffs

If you reach for the Special K with those little  chocolatey chunks thinking it’s more healthful than a kid’s cereal, you may as well fill your  bowl with Cocoa Puffs. The nutritional contents  of both cereals are pretty similar. Cocoa Puffs  are actually slightly lower in calories, fat, and  sodium, though Special K wins in the protein  department by 1 gram.

A better bet: Get your chocolate fix from real chocolate. Go for the heart-healthy dark type. Just be sure to limit it to 1 ounce a day.
