For a healthy chocolate fix I recommend Blue Diamond brand Oven roasted almonds in Dark Chocolate. For a one ounce serving (about 24 nuts) There are 160 calories, 13g of fat (the good kind!), 9g carbs, 3g fiber, only 4g suger, and 5g protein! They are also loaded with potassium, magnesium and other good for you vitamins, plus are made of all natural ingredients! They are a delicious snack that I enjoy daily!

It would be great if the items were available in a listing with links as well as in these slide shows. The slide shows take a long time to transition from one to the other.

When you list calories with no other nut. information it doe not really mean anything. Although a "calorie is a calorie" knowing the fiber, protein, fat and other facts are important also.

How are you actually recommending COOKIES as a healthy snack? That is appalling.
