Confectioner Cadbury is launching a range of chocolate bars with under 99 calories.

They are a thinner version of the regular chocolate bars, 'so you can have real Cadbury chocolate while keeping control of the calories," Cadbury said.

There are three variants; Cadbury Dairy Milk, Cadbury Dairy Milk Mint Chips; and Bournville, an extra dark, 76% cocoa chocolate.

The range will be available at Woolworth's, other leading stores and independents nationwide from June 2005.
