The 6 Worst Halloween Candies on the Market
4 pieces: 180 calories, 8 grams fat, 18 grams sugar
These sweets pack a serious amount of calories. Each Butterfinger Mini has a whopping 45 calories and 2 grams of fat. According to the calories burned calculator at Mayoclinic.com, a 145-pound person would need to briskly walk for 30 minutes to burn off 4 pieces of Butterfinger.
Starburst Fruit Chews
8 pieces: 160 calories, 3.5 grams fat, 23 grams sugar
Most fruit candies contain very little or no fat. Starbursts are the exception. Each little piece contains 20 calories, which can add up pretty quickly.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkin
1 piece: 180 calories, 11 grams fat, 16 grams sugar
Although the combination of chocolate and peanut butter can be tempting, this pumpkin can seriously derail your healthiest eating intentions. Opt for chocolates without peanut butter for calorie savings.
1 “fun size” bar: 83 calories, 4 grams fat, 10 grams sugar
Again, the combination of chocolate and peanuts puts this treat on our worst offenders list. There’s certainly nothing “fun” about crazy amounts of fat and calories.
1 “fun size” bar: 250 calories, 13 grams fat, 21 grams sugar
Thanks to the high-fat coconut filling, these little chocolate nuggets boast big fat and calorie counts. Skip this treat all together and opt for a small piece of dark chocolate.
