Which Halloween candy is healthier?

I saw this article on 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.


  1. Very interesting. Now I want candy!!!!

  2. very good to know! I always wonder what my best option is. Peppermint patties are not bad either i think!

  3. This made me hungry for a mini snickers! :)

  4. This is good to know! I figured the peanut butter cups would have been healthier but I guess not!

  5. Great to know!! However, I will gladly take all the Kit Kats and Twix I can get!!!
