Halloween Candy Breakdown

What is it about Halloween candy that makes it so enticing? All those miniature, bite-size, chocolatey morsels in brightly colored packages are so hard to resist. To prevent myself from eating half a bag of treats, I like to wait to buy my candy until the day before Halloween, and I also give out candy I hate. But when my girls come home with their trick-or-treat bags, a few pieces can't hurt, right? Unfortunately, all those little bites add up, so just to give you an idea, I've put together this breakdown.

The calorie content in this chart is based on one piece of Halloween "snack" or "fun"-size candy, not the full-size servings found in the candy aisle. The good news is that on most bags of bulk candy, the serving size includes two to three pieces or packets of each, so there's nothing wrong with indulging in a few of your favorites.

1 treat size (fun size) Calories Fat (g) Sugar (g)
Snickers 71 3.6 7.6
Reese's Peanut Butter Cup 88 5.2 8
Reese's Caramel Cup 100 5 11
Reese's Nutrageous 95 5.5 7.5

If you don't see the candy you crave,

Milky Way 77 2.9 10.2
Butterfinger 85 3.5 8.5
Almond Joy 91 5.1 9.2
Milk Duds 40 2 6.3
M&Ms 90 4 11.5
Peanut M&Ms 93 4.7 9.1

I've recently realized that I don't really like candy, it's far too sweet. For Halloween this year, I'm giving out some adorable little organic lollipops.

i thought a snickers fun size was 80 cals? or so it said on the back of my bag (which i tossed out so i can't double check) if it is only 77 cals then, yay! lol not much difference but i wouldn't feel as guilty eating 1. . . or 2. thanks for the info fit! printing it out now to keep me in line :)

I'm not a big candy eater. I won't buy candy until Friday, but I will probably have just a piece or two. My boyfriend, on the other hand, doesn't quite understand that the candy is for the trick-or-treaters, and not for him! :)
