They’re small, addictive and shaped like an underwater mine, but how many calories are there in a Ferrero Rocher? Chances are if you’re reading this, you don’t really want to know because you can’t stop eating them. In any case, here are the cold, hard facts.
Ferrero Rocher chocolates contain 220 calories for every serving size – considered to be 3 pieces, weighing in at 38 grams. This equates to 579 calories per 100g – an almost unrivalled amount, even in the world of desserts. So if you are the type of snack enthusiast who kids themselves into believing ‘just one more won’t hurt’, remember that one more will cost you 73 calories.
Ferrero chocolates consist of 42% fat. This means that 12 Rocher pieces account for 100% of your daily recommended fat intake. The one good thing to be said about the fat content is that there are no trans fats in Ferrero Rocher, so your cholesterol won’t take as much of a beating as with other desserts.
More good news: the sodium content of Ferrero Rocher is quite low, with one serving size of 3 pieces providing just 1% of your daily recommended allowance (calculated for a 2000 calorie per day diet).
