The SKINNY on Halloween Candy

Halloween is my favorite time of year. You get to dress up and scare people all month long. You also get to watch all of the fun and ghoulish movies from your childhood.  But the biggest perk of All Hallows’ Eve is the CANDY.


For those of us with a sweet tooth, Halloween can be a struggle to stay healthy. We wanted to help you by giving you the low down on all the mini candies you will find at the bottom of the candy bowl.


We know candy eating is bound to happen. We just want you to know what candies are the best to reach for.  We tracked the calories, grams of fat and sugar in some of the most popular candies found at the store.  We also ranked them in order of the best items to cheat with.

Keep in mind that, ideally, you want something really low in FAT and SUGAR.  This is extremely hard to do for this type of candy.  My advice is to reach for a piece of dark chocolate instead.

All of the candies information below is based on MINI candies, not full size candy bars.
