Bon'Approved Halloween Candy

Share it now.

Fall is here! Which means Halloween is right around the corner. Over at Bon’App, we know that Halloween is the ultimate test for everyone’s sweet tooth and we are here to help! We all deserve to indulge every once in a while but the trick lies in observing and obeying the suggested serving size. Whether you are staying in and giving out candy to the neighborhood kids or snatching up a few pieces of your own, here are some your best bets.

Give Kids This Instead of That!

And the winner is...3 Musketeers Minis (Serving Size: 1)
Bon’App shows us that a 3 Musketeers Mini has only 25 calories and less than 1 gram of fat per piece! This dreamy chocolate snack trumps its competitors, and with a greater serving size you don’t have to feel like you’re missing out. But be weary of their cute size! The calories add up quicker than you think!
Kit Kat Minis (Serving Size: 1)
Watch out for Kit Kat Minis. Although they seem too small to do much damage, one piece has almost twice as many calories and fat as a 3 Musketeer Mini, at 42 kcal and 2 grams respectively.

Charms Blow Pops (Serving Size: 1)
With 60 calories and 13 grams of sugar, these delicious lollipops are a great alternative to hard candy. Since most try to avoid biting lollipops until the bitter end, it is much easier to be content with a single lollipop than only one piece of candy. Charms Blow Pops are long-lasting and fun to eat!

Instead of…

Haribo Gold-Bear Gummi Bears (Serving Size: 17)
Although these gummi bears have no fat and a higher serving size than most candy, be weary of these little guys—each serving has 21 grams of sugar! Seventeen may seem like a generous serving size, but when taking hand-full after hand-full the calories and sugars add up!

And don't forget, although candy is not the most nutritious choice, don't be afraid to allow yourself a few treats here and there! Just remember, moderation is key!
