Between the masks, the music, and the spooky haunted houses, Halloween is undoubtedly the scariest holiday of the year. But beyond the convincing costumes and decorations, it’s also scary time if you’re trying to eat wisely, thanks to an endless assortment of temptations on display at the grocery store, set out at holiday parties, and lurking inside the kids’ trick-or-treat bags. Instead of avoiding candy altogether, start off the holiday season by being smart about your food choices, and being selective about which Halloween candies you treat yourself to. Packaging and portion sizes are often deceiving (it’s not hard to finish off a “sharing size” bag of candy), which is why we’ve compiled everything you need to know about your favorite Halloween candy in one comprehensive gallery. See if you can pick the better choice of paired-up treats in our Halloween Candy Challenge, which pits Twix against Kit Kats and Candy Corn against Tootsie Rolls. Some of the answers may surprise you—just because one has fewer calories doesn’t make it the winner. We’ve also provided healthier alternatives to all the sugar-laden treats, so you can participate in the noshing with none of the artificial ingredients and added sugar.
