Of course what people say and what any of the actual figures show are very different!
Totally agree. In a previous line of work I was in, famed for selling things to eat and drink that aren’t the healthiest, people would repeatedly say in surveys they wanted healthier food options. We brought in healthier food options, and nobody bought them.

Too true. I used to love Cadbury's low sugar option Dairy Milk, but has since been discontinued due to low sales.

That's not to say that there isn't a marked for low calorie/sugar snacks. Graze, One Fibre, Eat Natural etc are just some of the brands competing for those who want treats that aren't as unhealthy.
TVF's London Lite.

Skinny Dream Rocky Road are my fave. 75 cals, and 2 bars count as a 'healthy extra B' on Slimming World.
