Rolo, the milk chocolate-covered caramel candy, is manufactured by the long-established candymaker, The Hershey Company. Although many enjoy the taste, this candy provides a significant amount of calories, sugar and fat per serving. Because of this, it is important to only consume this candy as a special treat, as eating too much may result in unwanted weight gain.
Most Rolo candies are sold in one-serving, roll-shaped packages containing seven pieces of candy. Each serving is approximately 48 g, according to the official Hershey’s website. Some stores, however, sell bags of individually-wrapped Rolo candies. The 12 oz. bag lists seven pieces as the recommended serving size, which is the same amount of candy as in the roll.
