Hey Fit Readers!
Halloween is almost here! I know you and your kids are getting ready. What's your favorite candy? This morning in USA today, I read that 72% of people like the chocolate candies, 12% like candy corn, 6% like gummy candy, 4% like chewy candy, and the last 6% are other. I agree, totally like the chocolate candies the best! While I am agreeing, I am also counting the calories per candy. Those fun sized candies look small, but the calories and sugar can add up fast! My advice is to just enjoy a few. Here are some of my favorites and their calories (these are all fun sized):
Snickers: 72 calories
Reese's peanut butter cups: 80 calories
Butterfinger: 100 calories
Kit Kat: 73 calories
M&Ms: 90 calories
So there ya have it! If you had one of each, you have basically the caloric intake of a full meal. Watch out! Enjoy in moderation and have a happy Halloween!
