Chocolate Chips (46 pieces)

A small handful of these semisweet treats comes in right at the 100-calorie mark.

Sugar Cubes (6 2/3 pieces)

Most of the calories in decadent delicacies come from good old sugar. Each cube of sugar is equal to a teaspoon or a packet of the white stuff. All of these options contain 15 calories each.

Marshmallows (4 pieces large/regular)

Don’t get too carried away with these soft and puffy goodies; they contain 25 calories each. 

Chocolate Kisses (4.5 pieces)

According to the label, one serving (9 chocolatey smooches) contains 200 calories, so downsize your treat by 50 percent.

Vanilla Ice Cream (1/4 cup = 4 tablespoons)

There’s actually a lot of variation from brand to brand, but on average, 1/2 cup of vanilla ice cream adds up to 200 calories. So, sadly, a 100-calorie portion is only a puny 1/4 cup. 

Chocolate Sandwich Cookies (2 cookies)

Two of these popular creme-filled cookies have 106 calories, but we can let that slide, if they’re eaten in moderation. 

Cola (8.5 fluid ounces)

An overflowing 1-cup portion is all it takes for this high-sugar bevvie to top the 100-calorie mark.

Swedish Fish (14 fish)

This chewy treat has about 7 calories per piece, so count out 14 fish to keep your portion to 100 calories.

Powdered Doughnut (1/3 doughnut)

Sorry, doughnut lovers — it takes only a fraction of this breakfast pastry to hit the 100-calorie target.

Cupcake with Frosting (1/2 cupcake)

A relatively small frosted cupcake (about 2 ounces) has 220 calories; we suggest sharing with a buddy.
