Which Halloween candy is healthier?
I saw this article on realsimple.com I thought it was pretty interesting. It is which halloween candy is healthier fun size vs fun size.
Reese’s peanut butter cups or snickers- snickers
Peanut m&m’s or skittles- peanut m&m’s
Twix or kit kat- kit kat
Candy corn or tootsie rolls- Though you would need to eat 26 pieces of candy corn to rack up the same number of calories—140—as in 6 Tootsie Rolls, both candies contain artificial color and flavor. Vegetarians should go for Tootsie Rolls, however, since candy corn contains gelatin (an animal by-product).
Butterfinger or york peppermint pattie- my guess peppermint pattie, I was right
Starburst or jolly rancher- jolly rancher
Smarties or sweetarts- smarties
Milky way or payday- probably payday even though I wish it was milky way, oh I was wrong! Wahoo!
Almond joy or mounds- almond joy is my guess. It’s a tie.
Bubble yum or tootsie pop- I will guess bubble yum since you just chew it. Correct.
Carmel apple or candy apple- I’ve never had a candy apple so I’ll guess carmel ? Oh, I was wrong candy apples are healthier.
