Halloween Candy With Fiber and Protein

Trick or Treat: What's the Healthier Halloween Choice?

I'm not going to tell you not to eat Halloween candy this year, because we all are a little psyched for Snickers and Reese's! When you head to the office bowl or snag a treat from your kid's stash, it's nice to have a list of candy you know is slightly healthier either because it's trans-fat free or contains a little fiber or protein. Based on info from nutrition labels on bags of Halloween candy, check out the lists below to find out how to choose your fun-sized treats wisely.

If you're avoiding hydrogenated oils, go for:
Candy corn
Heath Bar
Hershey's Bar
Kit Kat
M&Ms
Peanut M&Ms
Peanut Butter M&Ms
Mounds
Mr. Goodbar
Nestle's Crunch
Reese's Peanut Butter Cup
York Peppermint Patty

Mounds: 1 gram
Mr. Goodbar: 0.5 grams
