Dried apple rings make a quick, sweet, fiber-rich snack if you’re in a hurry. But if you nibble freely from the bag, before you know it you’ll go way overboard on calories. One single dried apple ring -- 6.5 grams in weight -- has 16 calories.

Where the Calories Come From

If you eat a moderate half-cup serving of dried apples, about seven rings, you will consume more than 100 calories. Protein and fat combined make up less than 3 percent of the total calories in dried apples. About 96 percent of the calories are from carbohydrates, which is almost all sugar. If you love dried apple rings, make sure your favorite brand is labeled “no sugar added.” Otherwise, your sugar -- and calorie intake -- can quickly go up.
