20 Healthier Halloween Candy Choices

20 Healthier Halloween Candy Choices

OCTOBER 15, 2015 |
OK, so it’s all still sugar-filled candy and inherently not great for you, but sometimes there’s no avoiding that sweet tooth. And while there may be no real “healthy” answer to Halloween, there’s no need to fear all those delicious, tempting Halloween delights. We’ve rounded up the healthiest (or, at least the least guilt-inducing) trick-or-treat favorites. All our picks come in under 100 calories, 6 grams of fat, and 10 grams of sugar per serving. Plus, we’ve considered the satisfaction factor—so treating that sweet tooth won’t leave the tummy grumbling.

This classic is easy to love thanks to the antioxidant benefits of dark chocolate. Snack on two miniatures for a total of only 88 calories and 5.2 grams of fat.

Hailed as a low-fat treat, the snack-size version is even more regret-free. Nosh on two for less than 100 calories and 0 grams of fat.

It’s hard to stop at just one handful of this irresistible peanut-chocolate combo, so choose a snack-size bag (about 7 pieces) to limit intake, and dive in! Plus, Peanut M&Ms boast protein, fiber, and even some calcium with just 93 calories, 4.7 grams of fat, and 9.1 grams of sugar.

Even though the filling to this sweet treat is a dangerfood, sticking to a couple classic Reese’s cups can make the perfect sweet snack. Plus, all those annoying wrappers help halt the binge at only two mini cups, keeping this Halloween classic on the “nice list” with 88 calories, 5.2 grams of fat, and 9.2 grams of sugar. Choose dark chocolate for extra antioxidants!

While the Tootsee Roll (yes, the 1990s dance move) probably burns calories, Tootsie Rolls (the candy) don’t tack on too many calories themselves. Three minis contain only 70 calories and 1.5 grams of fat.
