Picking at the Halloween candy stash can EASILY add 500+ calories to your day! Resist temptation and save up your points; pick ONE holiday treat and take your time to really enjoy it.
Stick with a candy apple. They're big so you can't just pop it in your mouth, and they take a long time to eat so your enjoyment lasts longer. You're still indulging but it's the lesser of many evils!
I've ranked some of the season's top treats, and how long you would have to take your kids Trick or Treating to work them off:
Mini Snickers- 42 calories each (and that's the TINY ones!) - 15 minutes
Candy Corn - 150 calories for a small handful - 50 minutes
Candy Apple - 215 (small apple) - 1 Hour 10 minutes
Popcorn balls - 1 Hour 15 Minutes
Reeses Peanut-Butter Pumpkins - 1 Hour
Pumpkin Spice Latte - 2 Hours
BAG of fun-size Milky Way bars- 5 hours
*Note: At burning 3 cal/minute (190/hr) for a 150lb person walking 2mph.
