Creamy Caramels

One of the biggest contributors to someone being overweight and possibly the obesity epidemic is lack of knowledge and being mislead. Are you confused by my title? Well that’s the thing! We ate led to believe one thing but than the focus is slightly shifted elsewhere. The reason I picked cream caramels, you know those harmless looking cubes of caramel.

There deceiving 5 small cubes is 160 calories of crap, want to know what that equals too? A nature valley granola bar. Their nutritional makeup is very similar. So 5 caramels equals one bar, and how many times have you had more than 5. Even myself before today I thought they were maybe 20 calories each.

The moral if today’s story is do your research, you might only have to do it once per item but st least you will know and knowledge is power.
