ON A DIET? NO WORRIES! CALORIE COUNTS FOR FAVE HALLOWEEN TREATS

It’s Halloween weekend. This means there will be parties and probably some trick or treating, especially if you have children. Which means that on November 1, if you’re like many people, you’re going to have Halloween treats hanging around your house tempting you for at least a week.

If you’re on a diet, this can make things stressful. But there’s no law that says you can’t have one piece of candy a day. And sometimes it helps keep you on track. So, here are some popular Halloween treats (mostly, the kinds that get sold in those giant bags at Wal-mart) and their calorie counts.

Calories are for one piece. Remember, these are the tiny ones that come in the bags (usually referred to as “mini” or “fun size”)![1]

Happy Haunting!
