Packed with protein, healthy fats, and fiber, nuts are your go-to afternoon snack. But what happens to their calorie and sugar counts when you add flavors and coatings? Here’s how our favorites stack up.
- Glazed Walnuts: 140 calories, 9 grams sugar
- Salt and Pepper Pistachios: 152 calories, 2 grams sugar
- Chipotle Peanuts: 153 calories, 4 grams sugar
- Oil Roasted Marcona Almonds: 175 calories, 2 grams sugar

Tip: Because nuts are energy dense, the calories add up quickly. Rather than eating glazed or spiced kinds by the handful, sprinkle them on your salads in place of croutons for added crunch.
