How Many Calories In A Lollipop?

Lollipops come in a variety of shapes, sizes and flavors. Because of this it is difficult to say just how many calories are in a lollipop. Of course no one has ever confused a lollipop as some sort of health food, but just how unhealthy are they? How many calories in a lollipop are there? Lets take a look.

One Sees brand lollipop has 75 calories in it. Of those 75 calories, 25 calories are directly from fat. It also has 15 grams of carbohydrates and 9 grams of sugar. Other brands of lollipops have anywhere between 15-90 calories in them. Lollipops are an okay snack, but can hinder your weight loss efforts if you consume too many. Their deceptively small so you don't even think about the calories you are consuming. Lets say you enjoy a couple of lollipops per day. That's an additional 145 calories per day which equals over 1,000 additional per week! Talk about a weight loss killer.

As long as you make up for the extra calories by cutting elsewhere or exercising more its okay to enjoy a lollipop now and again. And be very careful to track how many you are eating. If you want to enjoy a lollipop try consuming the sugar free varieties. They can be found at most stores. They have about a tenth of the calories and of course are sugar free.
