Which Halloween Candy Is Healthier?
The better choice: Milky Way.
Both of these treats are built around gooey caramel, but “the Milky Way has less than 50 percent of the fat and sodium for two fun-size pieces,” says Sass. And, sure, the peanuts in PayDay offer some heart-healthy benefits, but they also come with 90 milligrams of sodium and 9 grams of fat.
A healthier alternative: Try satisfying your chocolate cravings with Organic Dark Chocolate Bug Bites. While they won’t save you much in the way of calories or grams of fat, they’re made with heart-healthy, antioxidant-packed organic fair-trade chocolate. Candy doesn’t get much more virtuous than that.
