Nutritionists Rank Halloween Candy From Best to Worst

Nutritionists ranked Halloween candy from the best to worst for you.  They based it on things like calories and sugar grams and whether there’s any protein or fiber to help keep you full.

The candy still, certainly isn’t healthy…   Here’s their list of nine candies, starting with the best:

1.  Gummy worms

One serving of eight gummy worms comes in at 100 calories and 14 grams of sugar.  And since they’re chewy, you can eat them more slowly.

2.  Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups — Yes!

A single peanut butter cup has 110 calories and 11 grams of sugar . . . but there’s also two grams of protein and one gram of fiber.  

3.  Blow Pops

It has 13 grams of sugar but only 70 calories.  Plus sucking on one will take you a while to finish, and then you get some gum when you hit the center.

4.  Snickers

A four-piece serving of Snickers Miniatures has 170 calories and 18 grams of sugar . . . plus three grams of protein and one gram of fiber.

 

5.  Twix

It’s 150 calories and 15 grams of sugar for a 3-piece serving of the Twix Minis.  But watch out for the Fun Size versions, which are 250 calories for two pieces.

 

6.  Kit Kats

The Kit Kats Miniatures clock in at 170 calories and 17 grams of sugar for four pieces.

7.  Twizzlers 

It’s 90 calories and 13 grams of sugar for three snack size pieces, but almost no protein or fiber.

8.  Tootsie Rolls

Six pieces have 140 calories and 20 grams of sugar . . . and no protein or fiber.

 

9.  Candy Corn

A serving size of candy corn is 19 pieces, which contains 140 calories and 28 grams of sugar.  

But who likes Candy Corn anyway?!?!
