A chocolatier in London says he has created a type of chocolate that is not only tasty, but can also help you lose weight.

Aneesh Popat came up with the recipe and sells the chocolates online. He uses flavor-infused water and cocoa. No butter or cream.

The truffle comes in at about 20 calories. Compare that to a Hershey's bar that weighs in at 210 calories.

A box of six truffles sells for about $13. But it also requires a hefty shipping charge.
