Which Halloween Candy Is Healthier?
Peanut M&M’s or Skittles?
The better choice: Peanut M&M’s.
Skittles have only 61 calories per snack-size bag, compared to 90 in Peanut M&M’s, but that doesn’t necessarily make them the better choice, says Gidus. Peanut M&M’s are low on the glycemic index, which means they release their sugar slowly into your bloodstream and will satisfy you longer. Those sugary little Skittles will spike your blood sugar and leave you craving more.
A healthier alternative: Although they are somewhat higher in calories, coated chocolate SunDrops candies contain no artificial colors or flavors or preservatives.
