Calorie Counts on Chocolate: Cool or Not?

The flip-flopping of whether NY eateries have to post calorie counts on their menu boards has got a lot of people thinking about where and when we want to see how many calories we're taking in.

A new concept has taken this idea literally by actually printing the calorie count right onto the chocolate bar, which means you'll see how many calories you're eating with each piece you break off. The idea is just that, an idea, and not yet available for purchase but it's still fascinating to think about. Me, I am not sure I'd want to know exactly how much each bite was costing me — seems to take the fun out of splurging on chocolate. Nonetheless, it's a cool idea. What do you guys think?

For someone counting calories this is amazing, for regular people it's just weird.

I think it's super cute and makes it easy to track your calories. Perfect for people who need this sort of thing to keep them from eating the entire bar! I even linked to it from my blog www.healthyhollywood.com today. Keep up the great work FitSugar!

I don't like this at all! When I want chocolate, I don't want to feel a double dose of guilt :-)

Cute and great idea~! I tend to overindulge in chocolate and it'll make me have second thoughts about finishing off an entire bar in one sitting...

I think its awesome! I have a tendancy to keep going back to more chocolate, but if I saw the numbers on it I would feel more guily :P

That's so cool! That way, if you want just a little treat, you can have one and if you want more, you can have more. It's like customizable dessert. Awesome idea!

i'm not sure... it's convenient, but idk if i'd want 2 know exactly how many calories in each piece. it would be a little wierd. plus not everyone counts calories and it would be useless for them to see little numbers all over their bars.

That's awesome! I wish they did that on everything! I wonder if that chocolate is any good.

no no no no no! That would totally destroy the whole idea of treating yourself to a piece of luxury - i.e. chocolate. I wouldn't mind it on milk/filled chocolate, but hands off the good quality high cocoa percentage chocolate.

Do people realise that the calorie info chocolate is already printed on the labels? If you only eat 1/4 divide the total by 1/4. People are just too lazy to take responsibility for tehir food choices.

I love the in your face approach! However, chocolate is a true indulgence so maybe not on this specific treat :)
