Choose from milk chocolate, dark chocolate or a yogurt bar, all filled with the silkiest, butter-smooth caramel and topped with a secret toasted nut blend. It's healthy enough to be a daily snack but delicious enough to feel guilty about it. Available at Whole Foods stores and other health shops around the country, Love Candy is based here in Dallas.
