Which Halloween Candy Is Healthier?
Twix or Kit Kat?
The better choice: Kit Kat.
While neither of these chocolaty, wafery/biscuity treats will win any nutritional prizes, “reaching for the Kit Kat will save you 20 calories and rack up less saturated fat and sodium,” says Sass. In fact, Twix packs three times the sodium—90 milligrams—in three fun size pieces than you would get in a comparable serving of Kit Kat.
A healthier alternative: Qbel Double Dark Chocolate Wafer Bars, which are covered in high-antioxidant 70% dark chocolate, will shave off another 40 calories and save you 80 milligrams of sodium (versus Twix). Bonus: You’ll get 10 percent of your daily-recommended iron intake.
