Chocolate oranges

Candy apples and chocolate-covered cherries aren't the only festive "fruits" to worry about. Although navel oranges are in season around the holidays, many skip the fresh fruit basket and choose to gift these orange-flavored chocolate balls.

Each one of Terry's chocolate "oranges," made from chocolate and orange oil (a natural pesticide derived from orange rinds), adds up to 230 calories and 8 grams of saturated fat.
