Calories in Cherry Tomatoes

calories-in-cherry-tomatoesOne of the best parts about Cherry Tomatoes is that you can eat a whole lot of them for very little calories. Cherry Tomatoes have great finger food appeal and generally taste much better than whole tomatoes. Personally I have never liked Tomatoes but recently started to like them because of the added nutritional value and the low calories. Believe it or not, for every pound, there is only a hundred calories in Cherry Tomatoes. That’s very few calories for a lot of food.
