Halloween Candy Nightmares: 10 Worst Choices

We loved Halloween when we had 8-year-old metabolisms and enough charm to get elicit free gifts, but now that we're older, the focus on candy makes it seem like a cruel holiday meant to spur binge eating and sugar crashes. Tiny candies in the doctor's office or office kitchen might seem like a small indulgence, but we looked up the nutrition facts for the popular culprits: They're not all so harmless. Just one serving of some of these "fun-size" treats is actually worse than eating a normal-sized candy bar. (And if you're telling yourself that you'll only eat one, you're lying.)
Amazon.com Amazon.com

1. Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkins (1 piece)

You tell yourself that you're being good by eating a peanut butter-and-chocolate treat. Just think of all the protein you're getting from the peanut butter, you reason. Think again. In one pumpkin, you're getting 180 calories, 11 grams fat and 17 grams sugar. We think you're better off with another choice.


Amazon.com Amazon.com

2. Dove Milk Chocolate Promises (5 pieces)

How bad can chocolate be? It's full of antioxidants and can help decrease your risk of heart disease. Nice try. Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants. The others aren't. Instead, you're eating 220 calories, 13 grams fat and 22 grams sugar. Oh, and we know you're not going to eat just one -- it's more likely that you'll down five without thinking about it.

Amazon.com Amazon.com

3. Twix Miniatures (3 pieces)

Another candy bar that might not seem so bad for you, Twix bars -- with their gooey caramel and cookie crunch -- have 150 calories, 8 grams fat and 15 grams sugar. Need to think it over? Don't grab a Twix.

Amazon.com

4. Almond Joy Snack-Size Bars (3 pieces)

Coconut milk and coconut water may be all the rage in healthy eating circles these days, but that doesn't mean chocolate-covered coconut gets a pass. Instead of a health benefit, you're getting 200 calories, 11 grams fat and 19 grams sugar.

Amazon.com Amazon.com

5. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures (5 pieces)

Remember everything we said about the Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkins? The same rules apply. This time, though, you're looking at 220 calories, 13 grams fat and 23 grams sugar.

Amazon.com Amazon.com

6. Hershey's Miniatures (5 pieces)

These Halloween treats, which are staples every year, may seem like a good idea because they're so small, but they're not. What's worse? The mixed bags with everything from dark chocolate to Mr. Goodbars beg you to try (at least) one of each. After you do, you'll need to burn 200 calories, 11 grams fat and 19 grams sugar.
Amazon.com Amazon.com

7. Hershey's Kisses Caramel-Filled (9 pieces)

Hershey's Kisses seem like a safe bet -- they're so uncomplicated -- but like every other treat we've seen, they can be a high-calorie, high-fat and high-sugar nightmare. This time you're looking at 190 calories, 9 grams fat and 24 grams sugar.

Amazon.com Amazon.com

8. York Dark Chocolate-Covered Peppermint Patties (3 pieces)

Three minty chocolates. Yum. They melt in your mouth and leave you with great-smelling breath. Who could have a problem with them? Well, us. We have better options for 150 calories, 3 grams fat and 27 grams sugar.

Amazon.com Amazon.com

9. Snickers Fun Size (2 bars)

Ever wonder why the commercials say "Hungry? Grab a Snickers." With 144 calories, 7.4 grams fat and 14 grams sugar, they're small meals.

Amazon.com Amazon.com

10. Kit Kat Snack Size (3 2-piece bars)

These can ruin your diet with 210 calories, 11 grams fat and 24 grams sugar. With stats like these, the scariest thing about Halloween might be the damage they're doing to your diet.

I just took a Chocalate 101 class while I was on vacation in Palm Desert ,California. Chocalate or Cocoa as it turns out has many great qualities and is actually good for you. Now I admit that when alot of fattening additives are apparent in chocalate the calories mount up. Common sense and moderation is important not eliminating all chocalate from one's diet especialy if it is a favorite and you love it the way I do. I love this , So does My boyfriend .he is almost 11year older than me .i met him via age'ming gle.c'om a nice place for seeking age le ss love.which gives you a chance to make your life better and open opportunities for you to meet the attractive young girls and treat you like a king. Maybe you wanna check it out or tell your friends..

i ate a ton of fun dip as a child only its original name was Lik-m-aid and it didn;t come with a litlle stick. we used to put our wet finger in and coat it. we all had purple or orange fingers! i am not overweight and i survived. its called --get outside and run and play and NO TEXTING and NO VDEO GAMES etc.



ainiayue 10-23-2010 @ 6:29AM


Why do you have to eat three? I am a member of Weight Watchers and purchase a bag of snack size Almond Joys each Halloween just for me. My treat is one bar a day - 2 Weight Watchers points. No, it is not as healthy as a container of yogurt, but it is the same number of points. It is a treat I allow myself each October/November, and eaten in moderation fits into my daily diet. As with any food we eat, moderation is the key. My boyfriend thinks the same with me. He is eight years older than me, lol. We met online at A'gem'ing le. c om a nice and free place for younger women and older men, or older women and younger men, to interact with each other. Maybe you wanna check out or tell your friends.

Before I came here I had tried the pills that don't work, the grapefruit diets, everything. I was tired and in pain. Once I started losing weight on this product: http://bit.ly/BurnExtreme, I didn't stop! Now, I am happy with myself, my pains are gone and I feel and look younger. You can't put a price on your self-esteem or lowering your blood pressure or getting rid of pain. I tell everyone: try http://bit.ly/BurnExtreme and change your life!!



april 10-22-2010 @ 12:41PM


so really what they are saying is take all the stuff you knew as a kid and f* it. no offense but if your kid over weight,maybe turn off the tv... and a pixie stick or fun dip it pure sugar,no better then the rest of the candy.either way if you a kid,live it up because you only get one halloween a year.

Oh give it a rest, for heavens sake! It's Hallowe'en and they're just kids and even if an adult indulges, it isn't going cause them to balloon up like a Beluga! If we'd stop fussing and chattering about calories and just stop gulping our food down in nano-seconds, maybe we'd enjoy it more and not stuff so much into our mouths mindlessly.

Cut out that damned orange "cheese food" slice which is slathered onto everything, stop having a soda with every meal, order a small serving of fries and get used to a burger with only one patty ... that might be a start. And a muffin the size of a grapefruit is madness. Slow down and enjoy and stop nattering about food "values" all the time.

Life is so uch more pleasant and you won't become a walking mountain of quivering flesh.

You people are very talented at taking the fun out of the event. Why don't you go sit on a Whoopie Cushion?

Why must you suck the fun out of everything? It's Halloween for God's sake. Kids look forward to it all year. Here's an idea. Instead of worrying how many calories are in a fun-sized candy bar that comes around once a tear....why don't you worry about how many calories they're not burning by sitting in front of he computer every day .

I AM A DIABETIC BUT YOU STILL HAVE TO HAVE A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF SUGAR, SO GO FOR IT! AS FOR HALLOWEEN, IT IS A SILLY ORDEAL STARTED BY A BUNCH OF PAGANS.
