Fruity Candy Claim

Nestle claims the new Cranberry Raisinets provide 1/2 serving of real fruit in every 1/4 cup and have 30% less fat than the leading chocolate brands and they contain free-radicals. Is it true? Are these a good snack choice according to dietitians? Dr. Nancy Snyderman says don't buy the hype. She says there is more sugar in the Cranberry Raisinets than in Snow Caps!

Cranberry Raisinets: sugar: 30g
Snow Caps: sugar: 24g

Cranberry Raisinets have the same saturated fat, fat and 20 more calories than a box of Snow Caps. So, most parents probably wouldn't consider this a "healthy" option. Good to know! I love chocolate covered raisins so I probably would have tried these thinking they are bit healthier!
