Indulge in a Guilt-Free Candy Bar

It's the New Year again, and you know what that means: time for New Year's resolutions. Here at FitSugar, we are helping you out with all kinds of advice for sticking to those healthy promises, which is why I am excited to tell you about
3 Musketeers® 100 Calorie Bars.

When indulging in sweet treats, moderation is key. Now, thanks to our friends at 3 Musketeers®, you can enjoy those indulgences with less guilt. 3 Musketeers® 100 Calorie Bars allow you to treat yourself to the nougat-filled candy bars you love without breaking your resolutions. Available in the candy aisle, these products are identical in ingredients to their full sized counterparts. The trick is that they come in perfect portions that are just 100 calories per serving. So you really don't need to give up chocolate in order to stick to those resolutions. Pretty awesome, right?

Interesting that this ad is on fitsugar since it has absolutely nothing to do with maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Eating candy isn't the worst thing one can do, but passing it off as a good way to keep resolutions is just sad.

First of all, Fit, I'm sure this isn't your choice of sponsor so this is directed more toward Sugar marketing, or whoever makes the sponsorship deals. Ahem...I've bitten my tongue at the last couple of 100 Calorie candy posts, but come on!! I love FitSugar, but these sponsored articles are horrible. They appear alongside informative articles about the dangers of high fructose corn syrup etc etc. They completely undermine the credibility of an otherwise fantastic blog. These products are such a gimmick anyway, not to mention terrible for the environment with all of the extra packaging. Whenever you hear about someone's weight loss journey they're likely to tell of how they'll buy a packet of single portion cookies or candy bars with the intention of eating just one, but end up gobbling the entire packet. Are there no other companies that can sponsor the site? Fitness wear companies? Healthfood companies? This 100 Cal rubbish is not just a threat to the health and well being of Fit readers, but to the blog itself. Just sayin'.

This may not be an issue for any of you, but Mars (the company that produces 3 Musketeer bars) funds animal testing. If this is something that bothers you, please consider letting Mars know how you feel. I for one, won't be purchasing any of their products.

I completely agree with about 90% of the above posts. There is another blog on this site, YumSugar, that could be used for the sponsored posts about candy. FitSugar loses its credibility when it posts these and I'm incredibly dissapointed by it.

They taste awesome. They are just scaled down versions of the real bars. They are the perfect sweet treat

I just wanted to concur with a number of the posts above and register my disappointment with these sponsored ads for candy. I suspect that these posts are something your employer is encouraging you to do against your will, and I just wanted to voice my opinion to Sugar Inc. that these ads have no place in a fitness blog. There's a lot of women reading this who are truly struggling with their weight, and I know that for many women this is a lifelong, not only physical, but emotional struggle. Posting advertisements of allegedly "guilt-free" candy bars in a forum designed to support and help women with their health goals is irresponsible and, dare I say, cruel.

I agree, I really am not liking these sponsored posts lately. And just because it's a 100-calorie candy bar doesn't mean it's healthy! I quote: "these products are identical in ingredients to their full sized counterparts." Junk, sugar, corn syrup, sugar, etc. I'm not a candy-eating person myself, but if you really want to have a candy bar, just eat the normal one and enjoy it.

I think FitSugar loses its integrity as a health & fitness site when it posts this garbage.

3 musketeers has always been on the forefront of a lower cal snack...they've always advertised having 33% less fat (than what you ask) and now they are up to 45% less on the 'normal' version.

The other day I saw 100 calorie PUDDING CUPS at the grocery store. The thing is, I already had pudding in my cart- sugar-free pudding that cost half as much and only had 45 calories per cup.

yeah im not too fond of these sponsored links. Did you guys know that chocolate companies get their cacao beans from distributors that purchase it from farmers at low cost. As a result, many farmers use enslaved children to pick the beans. If you want to know more about it, check out the trailer here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=3X3saJUs8f4 im still guilty of buying chocolate from nestle, Mars, etc. sometimes But i just wanted to spread the word :)

I think this "sponsored" post was a lot better than the one for the M&Ms! (It mentions moderation, and technically they do have less fat compared to other candy bars). Thanks for taking our comments into consideration, Fit!

I wonder if they still taste as good? These are on of my favorite candy bars! YUM can't wait to try it!

You know, health issues aside, I'm really disappointed by these sponsored advertisements, though I do appreciated that you're very blatant about sponsorship and are not deceptive. I feel like I've counted on Fit for a long time for what I consider to be unbiased health news that is all about getting healthy, feeling great about yourself and being in shape, and these ads just totally fly in the face of that. I'm not trying to bash, but it just feels really forced and as if we're being taken advantage of. I avoid ads really consciously because I don't like their message, and it upsets me to see the message coming out of Fits' mouth. Just my $0.02.
