Yes, you read that right. Candy. Can be good for you. I think I’ve died and gone to heaven. Especially since Cadbury Eggs are popping up everywhere I look! Some candy has been shown to have serious health benefits such as preventing disease and weight gain. There is one small, little catch: As they always say, enjoy in moderation. Read on to discover how you can enjoy sweet treats, sans the guilt!

Choose Daily Dark Chocolate…
A new study backs up the best excuse ever to indulge your PMS craving: People who ate a little chocolate every day were 40 percent less likely to have a heart attack or stroke, according to the study in the European Heart Journal. Pick a piece of dark chocolate the size of a Hershey's Kiss.

…Or Whatever Indulgence You Want.
Fans of fruity candy, rejoice! People who eat confections of any kind have a lower body-mass index and a smaller waist than their candy-skipping pals, researchers at Louisiana State University find. Balancing healthy eating with the occasional treat is key.

Get Gummy
Chewing gum improves alertness, a study from Coventry University reveals. Pop a piece when you’re studying for that final or you need an afternoon pick-me-up.

Have a Ball
The corn in that sticky popcorn ball has fiber and antioxidants. Microwave 1/2 cup honey for 10 seconds and add 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips. Pour over 6 cups popcorn mixed with 1 cup salted peanuts. Stir. Form into balls and chill on wax paper until firm.

Do Dessert
A sweet truth: Enjoying more treats can help you slim. People who ate four low-calorie desserts a week lost 9 pounds more than those who had one weekly splurge, research from the University School of Medicine in Athens shows. Those who felt deprived pigged out, but frequent sweets eaters were satisfied with smaller portions.

Downsize It
People given halved candies ate 60 fewer calories than those offered the same amount of whole ones, the Journal of the American Dietetic Association reports. Small-sweets eaters considered quantity, not size, and stopped sooner. This works for other treats, too, so slice before snacking.
