Front-of-Pack calorie labels make it easier for consumers to plan

Layout 1

Want to know how many calories are in your candy? Voluntary front-of-pack calorie labels are changing the face of candy.

In 2013 NCA launched the Treat Right front-of-pack labeling system to meet the specific needs of confectionery package sizes  while at the same time providing as much consistency as possible with other food and beverage front-of-pack labels.  Members of the confectionery industry have begun putting labels showing calorie counts on the front of packages. We recently started a Pinterest board to document these labels when we spot them “in the wild”.


Because these labels clearly show calories, they can help you in your efforts to eat candy in moderation. Learn more about how to #treatright at
