iVillage.com: Which Is Worse? How to Avoid Unhealthy Snacks

Worse: 6-Pack Oreo Cookies

The Oreos are the loser here not because of calories (only 60 more than the Hershey’s chocolate bar) or fat (the chocolate actually has more). It’s the sodium numbers that have Sandon shaking her head. The snack-size Oreos have 310 milligrams of sodium, 10 times as much as you find in the Hershey bar. “You’re trading a little more fat in the Hershey’s for less sodium,” says Sandon. “It’s not a great trade-off, but it’s a trade-off nonetheless.” If you can, Sandon says choose the Hershey Special Dark Chocolate Bar, which has fewer calories, less fat and less sodium than the milk chocolate variety, as well as those disease-preventing antioxidants.
