6 Classic Halloween Candies that won’t SCARE your SCALE!

Who said Halloween Candy was just for the KIDS?!

Even though “candy” is not exactly synonymous with “diet”…there are still ways to TREAT YOURSELF, while not causing a SCARE when you get on the SCALE.

Just take our advice on the smartest snacking choices + don’t turn the Halloween Candy into a 2 month chocolate celebration!


 

Here are our TOP 6 PICKS for Trick or Treat TREATS:

  1. Hershey’s Special Dark: This classic is easy to love thanks to the antioxidant benefits of dark chocolate. Snack on two miniatures for a total of only 88 calories and 5.2 grams of fat.
  2. Peanut M&Ms: It’s hard to stop at just one handful of this irresistible peanut-chocolate combo, so choose a snack-size bag. Plus, Peanut M&Ms boast protein, fiber, and even some calcium with just 93 calories, 4.7 grams of fat, and 9.1 grams of sugar.
  3. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures: Sticking to just a couple classic Reese’s cups can make the perfect sweet snack. This Halloween classic is on the YES list with 2 totaling only 88 calories, 5.2 grams of fat, and 9.2 grams of sugar. Choose dark chocolate for extra antioxidants!
  4. Payday: Despite what the name may suggest, a fun-size Payday doesn’t take a huge toll on your diet. One bar contains 90 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 8 grams of sugar. Plus, thanks to the peanuts, it also boasts 2 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein.
  5. Raisinets: This chocolate and raisin combo has only 67 calories and less than 3 grams of fat per snack-size bag (about 42 pieces). Extra points for choosing the dark chocolate variety!
  6. Kit Kat: “Gimme a break, gimme a break…” No really, GO AHEAD! Kit Kat bars are relatively low in calories and fat thanks to their light, crunchy wafer center. One two-piece bar has 70 calories, 3.6 grams of fat and 9.2 grams of sugar.
