Is it better to gobble or nibble?

Sweets, that is.
From the person who just ate an entire bag of Easter chocolate (which doesn't bother me, it's a rare occurrence) - I'm curious. Is there any scientific reason why "bad" foods like fats or sweets are better consumed spread out over time rather than consumed all at once? Assuming the same quantity of total consumption. Google has no answers except "don't eat lots of sweets."

For example, if I buy a pie every Saturday, would it be healthier for me to gobble up the whole pie that day, or to divide it into seven slices (or more!) and eat it once (or more!) a day all week?
My very basic knowledge of biology thinks it should be the same, but I'd love to know if I'm missing something!
