Chocolate 101: Size Matters!
Before you chew, know the difference between Snack Size, Fun Size, and Miniatures...
Miniatures/Minis are the square-shaped morsels -- those babies are each about a quarter-ounce in weight.
A Snack Size or Fun Size chocolate treat weighs in at a little more than a half-ounce and is usually about 2 inches long.
Not all size-categorized treats are created equal. We've found seemingly identical Fun Size bars on shelves -- same brand, same flavor -- with varying weights and calorie counts. If you want to be extra-careful, we recommend going by the higher set of stats listed below.
3 Musketeers Mini Bar - 24 calories, 0.7g fat (POINTSŪ value 1*)
3 Musketeers Fun Size Bar - 63 - 70 calories, 2 - 2.25g fat (POINTSŪ value 1 - 2*)
