There is something truly decadent and wonderful when you combine chocolate and sweet coconut. If you are a fan of combining these two flavors then you are probably partial to Almond Joy and Mounds candy bars.
It’s hard not to fall for these unique tasting tropical chocolate treats!
Unfortunately these bite size chocolate bars lack the nutrition your body needs, especially when you are trying to nourish your body with a balanced diet.
If you have undergone bariatric surgery it’s even more important to fuel your body with healthy and nourishing foods since you are not able to consume as much food at each meal.
It’s especially crucial for the small portions of food you eat to meet your higher protein needs.
What is the Nutritional Value In an Almond Joy?
When you open a standard size Almond Joy candy bar, like the kind you would grab at a gas station or checkout aisle at a grocery store, you find 2 small snack size chocolate covered bars.
These 2 tiny bars equate to 220 calories per pack. So, you could eat 1 bar and save yourself 110 calories for later, but who are we kidding. The first tiny bar just gives us a taste and leaves us wanting the whole pack and more on top of that.
