Think Before You Eat: What Is Really In Your Halloween Candy?

Halloween Candy inside a pumpkin shaped dishHalloween is just around the corner and while we hope you have plans for a killer costume and rocking party, we also hope those plans include a way to fight off one of Halloween’s most frightening features–the CANDY!!!

It’s hard to go anywhere without running into a piece of the bite-size bliss. It’s everywhere you go, just watching waiting for your willpower to crumble. The small size of most Halloween candy seems to trick us into believing that it’s okay to eat a few pieces without much of a consequence. It’s easy to justify because it’s tiny and there can’t be that many calories in it. Right?

Wrong! Every piece of those spooky sweets work against you and your weight loss goals. And, even the fun size versions have a lot more calories than you might think.

Sometimes all you need to battle your Halloween sweet tooth is the right information that will make you think twice before you pop one of those tiny temptations into your mouth. Try taking our Halloween candy quiz in the link below to see just how well you know your candy!
