Here’s Why: When ending a holiday meal, there’s nothing that hits the spot more than a chocolate treat. Moderation is the key to indulging in everything you love.  You can get your chocolate fix with less calories and fat by opting for the After Eight chocolate mints which are free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives. Ferro Rocher chocolates up the calorie and fat content with nuts, and also contain modified palm oil which increases the saturated fat.
