Sponge Candy Nutrition Profile – How Sweet It Is!

And now for the “not-so-good news…Culinary Factoid #1:  whenever chocolate, sugar and corn syrup show up in a candy recipe, you know that calories can’t be too far behind.  You have to decide if what you LIKE…No, make that what you WANT…No, make that what you LOVE is worth the price.  Hey – I think we all adults here?  Thought so!  Check out the stats & facts in nutrition table below.  Who said “…A little knowledge can be a dangerous (but sweet) thing…”

Sponge Candy is so good that I will often perform my own “quality control” on selected pieces before dinner!  Especially if nobody is looking…I guess at my age – and feel free to guess my age – that I now know WHAT I like and WHEN I want it.   Broccoli be damned!

Despite selective sampling of a few pre-dinner pieces, I can still find room to finish my dinner (which makes my wife happy…) but since there are no more kids in the house now – almost anything goes around here.  I may not walk around the first floor of my house wearing just my birthday suit or “thong-like” underwear unlike my crazy neighbor next door who refuses to close his blinds – I just can’t say no to Sponge Candy!

You can’t eat just ONE piece of Buffalo Sponge Candy

My preference?  Sponge Candy covered in dark chocolate and lots of it.  The orange chocolate may be O.K. for a short refreshing break – but I still prefer the milk chocolate sponge candy which is smooth as silk – I NEVER want to run out of dark chocolate sponge candy.

O.K. – Take a gander below.  The science behind those numbers may be somewhat suspect due to variations in actual sizes and weights – but these numbers are probably pretty close to the real deal.  And what’s up with that “3 pieces” standard?  In Buffalo, NY three pieces is just a warm up for the main event!  That’s it for now – I gotta’ get those New Balance running shoes out of my closet and get into shape for Valentine’s Day and the Easter weekend!
