We don’t know about you, but our favorite part of Halloween (besides the amazing makeup) is the candy and, perhaps more importantly, the candy that goes on a 70% off sale on November 1. As health conscious (or not) as you may be, no one can escape eating some Halloween candy come the end of October. How are you supposed to resist chocolate that comes in “fun size?” You just can’t.
It’s pointless for us to tell you that Halloween candy is bad for you. We all know this, and we all eat it anyway (just like you know you should be washing your face twice a day, but you’re lucky if you get in one good cleanse). To help you not pack on a ton of weight from Halloween candy, we’ve broken down the nutritional facts of the most popular candies (based on fun sized samples) so you’ll know which choices are the lesser of the evils. Try not to cringe too much when you see which candies are the worst for you (sorry,Reese’s fans everyone).
